      Tinnitus Since:

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Years of excessively loud headphone use
      So during the past month or so my hearing has gone up and down. Least the way I notice it. I'll get exposed to noise (that isn't so loud) and one ear just goes out a little more for 2 days or so and comes back. It's concerning me because I want it to stop. I went outside today and I was at a restaurant and around cars and my hearing on the same side went a little lower and more muffled. I have no pressure or warm feelings or fullness in my ear. Like I did in the beginning stages of my hearing loss. It has just decreased. It'll likely come back in a few days. But I want this fluctuations to stop. Someone please help me.

      I forgot to mention that the side that is fluctuating is swollen on my face. From my jaw up to my ear. I'm also hearing extra pops when I swallow and yawn in that ear. Probably something wrong with the tube? But that doesn't explain the fluctuating hearing from noise.

      not known, too many possible causes
      I would like to help you more, but all I can say that at the debut of my tinnitus I had the same symptom: fluctuation hearing. It went away, this symptom, and now I hear perfectly in my left ear, and in my right ear i remained with the same hearing loss that I have since I was three, when they cut my tympanic membrane to let the puss out.

      Although I still have tinnitus, this does not mean that you will remain with tinnitus too.
      All I wanted to say is that fluctuation in hearing goes away. Your acoustic trauma is too recent. Give it some time.

      On this forum there are accounts of people who were cured of tinnitus induced by acoustic trauma even after 18 months.

      Patience and optimism!

      I just wish I knew why my hearing keeps fluctuating. It's done this a few times and I also want to know why there is swelling in my face.
