      Hi :)

      Just sitting up this evening with active tinnitus and decided to, at last, sign up to this forum to hear others' stories and learn more about tinnitus. I have hearing loss and been wearing hearing aids since my late 20's. My hearing loss is most severe in low tones.

      Tinnitus has been getting worse for me in the past 5 years.

      So, here I am!

      19-year-old with those ear sounds for 4 years. Some things I have seen on this forum that help:
      • Success Stories category
      • Threads about FX-322 (Frequency Therapeutics), a candidate drug that restores natural hearing. There are more candidates but this one is by far the most popular
      • Threads about random topics
      Do hearing aids reduce your tinnitus? I want to try them myself.

      Good luck :wideyed:

      HI @EpicStardust

      Welcome to the forum and good to have you aboard.

      Hearing loss can make tinnitus worse and usually the condition will improve when suitable hearing aids are fitted. Therefore, it's important that you have your hearing checked and the hearing aids to make sure they are working at optimum performance. My main interest is to help people with noise induced tinnitus, that is often but not always caused by headphones, earbud or headset use. Other forms of loud noise exposure cause it too.

      You might find my post in the link below of some interest.

      All the best
