      I'm coming up to three weeks with an ear infection/10 days on anti biotics

      Is it likely when the infection clears the T diminishes? I know in some cases its permanant. But that has to be very isolated cases right?

      Anyone also have ear infections that caused it and it went?

      I had an ear infection before and the noises I had went away as well. You just have to be patient and let your ears heal

      It took 2 months to go away. The best thing to do is keep yourself busy and do things you like to do.

      mine came from an ear infection and it never went away. It got lower though. I am 99% sure they came from the drops they gave me. I had to get into see an ENT who said they gave me drops that were making my ear infection worse. I like many people went to urgent care first because ENT's don't usually have next day appointments. They gave me drops that I know made the infection worse and I am pretty sure gave me the permanent T. Make sure you get into to see an ENT.
