      Cause of Tinnitus:
      I'll never forget it.
      I was out with a friend, nothing crazy, Drinks, dinner, a bar or 2, but nothing really loud. The next morning I heard it, and it hasn't let up since

      Tinnitus Since:
      It started almost a year ago. I went to sleep at around 9pm, and woke up 2 hours later. I had a little bit of wax impacted in my right ear, and it was bothering me, so I put my finger in my ear to try and remove some of the wax, and that was the first time I heard it. Sometimes I wonder what would have been different if I had just slept through the night.

      Tinnitus Since:
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Whiplash or Buzzer (abuse from ex)
      Mine started slowly over time. The ringing would come and go and eventually over 7 months it became constant. Not sure if it started due to getting whiplash or from loud buzzer.
