I have had tinnitus since late 2014. I have been around very loud noises for years. I believe this may have caused it, but does anyone know the cause? I am new here and have been reading posts and recognize things we share. My symptoms are not severe, can tune out most of the day. Night is a problem, use white noise to get what sleep I can. I read where vertigo is associated. When driving back in the states I have had such events, dizziness that comes and goes. I fly most of time and drive very little, but that is of great concern to me. Possibly not being able to drive the few chances I get to. Would like to hear any suggestions or similar stories. Thanks.
