      Tinnitus Since:
      ...just to introduce. I am Tim from Germany and I have T since the 21st of September. I was working outside with a loud machine (high frq) for about 40 mins and then there was a Sound on both ears :/ I used the machine some days/months ago and everything was fine.

      Usually I am not used to loud sounds like clubbing or concerts but that time I guess it was to loud. I directly met a doctor and my audio Test was ok. The next day I started an Infusion therapy for about 10 days. Audio Test was ok again. The first time I could not stand any loud sounds because I think I have a little H too. Dishes and so on are really bad to listen too.... traffic is ok as I think its seems to get milder? T is now mainly on my right ear. I have also clicking sounds wenn swallowing, is that normal?

      I have also quit drinking Coca Cola (up to 1 liter per day) and Coffee and Start eating fruits.

      I am scared... my ENT doctor sent me to accupuncture to relax and said it is ok to "just" wait. But its a very hard time for me.

      Thank you for any tips and helping guides....

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      not sure
      Welcome. Since your tinnitus is so new and may be related to acoustic trauma, you may want to get your doctor/ENT to prescribe a course of prednisone or other corticosteroids. Members here highly recommend new T patient to get this treatment as soon as possible. Here is a discussion thread on this treatment:


      If you have T and H also, then your condition is like mine a few years back. My T is ultra high pitch dog whistle, whereas my severe H turned all normal sounds piercingly hurtful. The initial struggle was tough and I was in a mess physically and emotionally. But now I live a normal and absolutely enjoyable life. I even wrote my success stories like many other members. How I turned around my struggle from darkness to light? Well it is a long story and I list many points plus some mental imagery exercises. So for brevity I provide this link to it and hopefully it will help you in some way. I also provide the link to a TT thread which has great masking sounds and tips for newbies. Take good care of yourself and God bless.
