      Hi guys my name is josh and I was diagnosed with tinnitus shortly after being in a motorcycle accident. I sufferd severe injuries to the pelvis and femurs but the main issue now is the fact that I have gained tinnitus from the mtbi that I sustained. and at the age of 18 I find myself struggling.words of support and wisdom are very much appreciated and questions about myself and the experience with tinnitus are welcomed ps.LETS BE FREINDS FOREVER ! Lol

      Hi Josh,

      Welcome. I have gotten T in a similar way like you. I am about to unleash a bigger quest to look for best treatment methods.
      The upcoming months this info will be expanded.
      Lets keep each other updated!

      For now try to aim for habituation. If you have any questions let me know

      Cheers

      Hi Josh and Welcome to TT!

      There's lots of information on the site to help you. First, are you getting enough sleep? Getting enough sleep is perhaps the most important thing you can do! Making sure you have background noises when you sleep is very important; in fact, with new tinnitus, you probably should have some type of background noise on 24/7 to help minimize your noise. This site has some nice masking tracks you should try. Besides background/masking sounds, you might need a sleep supplement. I'll give you a link later to some supplements that have helped people.

      Second, although it's important to keep background sounds on 24/7, you should also not worry about your tinnitus. Worrying about it--focusing on it, trying to measure it, etc.--only draws your attention to it. And that will raise you noise. Try to live your life normally--as if you didn't have tinnitus. Getting back to normal activities will help you feel better.

      Third, your tinnitus is very new; for most people, tinnitus will resolve on its own within six months. This is also why it's important that you get back to normal activity. If you feel depressed, which is natural, you might see a psychologist or psychiatrist to help you.

      Fourth, since you're eighteen, you might be eligible for the AM-101 trial. Read the thread about it and decide if you think you'd want to participate.

      And remember you are not alone!

      Here are two sleep threads, but there are many more if you do a "sleep" search:

      Hey josh first off sorry you got T, but hearing the fact that you were in a motorcycle accident, im just happy it was not worse. You will pull through, there is great advice on here. One thing i would suggest is if you have specific question post on the support section, more people tend to see messages there. Your not alone buddy you can pm me if you need to talk.

      Hi Josh,

      Do you still have T. Please provide an update on your T caused by Trauma. I can relate to you since my T also started 50 days after head trauma.

      Hey guys it's been a while ......... The spike which caused this post thankfully seemed to have settled and I have been pretty good since but just today I have started obsessing over it and now it seems worse but I don't think it actually has got any worse I just need to chill out
