Has Tinnitus a Better Chance of Going Away If There Is No Sensorineural Hearing Loss?

      Hello Doctor Nagler,

      Thank you very much for your encouraging and quick replies to all of our questions so far. I really really appreciate your being here for us and it means a lot and makes a difference to our coping with this. Thank you again Doctor :)

      Many people say T can go away in months to a year. The causes can be noise exposure, infection, blow to the head or neck, pressure changes in the ears, etc. do you think the chances are less when there is a slight SNHL involved in higher frequencies as compared to someone who doesn't have a SNHL and has T because of other reasons ? Do you think the generalisation that it may go away in 6 months-1 year is more suitable for those people with perfect and normal hearing and may not be for someone with a slight dip in higher frequencies?

      I know it is totally unpredictable and nobody can say for sure what's gonna happen next. Also I am not living in a hope for it to go away and trying to adapt to it. But I wonder if I have a chance even with slight SNHL. Investigations suggest that I probably have a nerve damage and no cochlear damage according to the audiologist .OAE was clean uptil 8k. Please share your thoughts on it.

      Thank you :)
