      Gun range trip
      Hello my tinnitus started 2 weeks ago after a trip to the gun range. I was wearing ear plugs but it was not enough in my case. I really wish I could turn back time. It's been really rough for me.

      I was wondering if prednisone would be of any help to me ?

      I go see a ENT on Tuesday and was wondering if I should ask if he could prescribe some. Any links to studies if it can help me would be appreciated. Even if it could just lower the volume of the T.

      Thank you for your time and I hope we can all find some relief soon.

    3. I would be asking for a course of prednisone. At 2 weeks, you are little farther out than is optimal, but it is worth a shot. In my experience, you will be more likely to get it if there is evidence of hearing loss - you will probably have a hearing test at your appointment.

      Thank you for the response Aaron. I'm also having a hearing test that day. My right ear I would say definetly hears less than my left. I have T in both ears but I can hear the T on my right even when I'm outside. Wish my right ear T was the same as my left.
