      Tinnitus Since:
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Noise / T worsened with antiobiotics
      I know this has been talked about before, but it seems like some people react differently depending on whether they've had noise-induced tinnitus or drug-induced tinnitus. Mine started with noise exposure and then was kicked up a few notches after taking antibiotics. I've now read a few stories from people that have gotten T from a flu shot.

      I started getting a flu shot every year about 4 years ago and haven't had problems but now worry that my ears won't be able to handle it. For those with T caused by prescription meds, what has your experience been with the flu shot? Is it worth the risk?
