      Amazing loud sounds in the Club
      Hello. I'm Changwoo from Korea.
      Nice to meet you and I think I need your help. because i feel depression everyday.


      My tinnitus condition
      * After club, I got it
      * on Left ear. (Right ear was recovered after injection)
      * passed 2 months ago
      * Hight-pitched sounds (ex)BBi~~~~~ )
      * Sounds level is 5 / 10 (it can be masked in outside)
      * 24 hours with me
      * Characteristic
      A. When i yawn, My T is more louder.
      B. When i look at ceiling or sky, T is more louder.


      And this is my long tinnitus story.

      7/29
      Let me introduce my Tinnitus story. I got my T after night club in China. I usually don't go to a club but until that day I studied chinese really hard and I feel I need to get rid of stress. In the club, The sounds was amazing which I never heard before. And Our(with my friends) tables was next to the huge Speaker. (on my right side) But I and my friends ignore the sounds and play dancing for 3:30 hours. When I came back to home. I notice I got a tinnitus. but I didn't care about it at that time.

      30/07
      When i woke up I noticed there was no difference on yesterday.
      My symptoms was same. High-pitched (bbi~~~~~) tinnitus. But I believed I can recover.

      02/08
      I was little bit afraid. T still on my both of ears. and I can feel pressure on the right ears.
      So I went to the ENT. and i got injection on the right-out side. Check audiometry .
      The doctor said 'My result is normal and It will recover.'

      11/08
      I came back to Korea. My right ear's condition was went back to normal. only small T. but left wasn't. still high-pichted sounds. So I went to the most big and famous hospital in Korea. and met Specialist about T treatment Doctor. I checked more detail my hearing test. And the result is I just can't hear 16000hz. Doctor said hearing ability is totally normal. I asked about the injection on the left ear but he doesn't recommend. He gave me a medicine for 2 months and said 'take a rest'.

      12~31/08
      I spent a really busy days. I took a chinese Exam with my T. Writing resume etc...
      I used masking method when i was in the home. Avoid really quite space.
      I thought my T is almost gone. So i want to check my T is gone or not, I went to the really quite room in my home and try to hearing T.
      But..... my T is still there. I was frustrated and felt really big depressive emotion.
      I'm 26 years old and I forgot when I cried before. but that day I cried 1 hours alone.
      I really love peaceful atmosphere and enjoy my quite leisure times. But now I can't.
      I felt I ruined my life.

      01~29/09
      I try to do everything for recovering my T. and try to control my mind.

      * Try to masking using white noise everydays
      * No use earphone headphone
      * Sleep around 10 hours
      * eating really healthy foods
      * getting acupuncture
      * Swimming 1 times per week
      * Running 3times per week
      * When I took a subways I use ear plug.
      * Read success stories in this forum

      30/09
      My T's condition is always same. still there. Everyday try to ignore my T, but I can't. It is really hard.
      until now I spent the most horrible time in my life. I'm almost exhausted. And yesterday I cried alone again.
      I was strong and smile guy but not now.

      Now I'm still afraid to possibility of recover my T.

      Thank you for read my story. I'll post my procedure here and want to share my recovering story.
      I really really hope I'll recover soon.

      @Changwoo

      I am in a very similar situation..also got it from clubbing and also I feel like this is the most difficult time of my life.. really don't know what to do if this stays forever.. only that I am already 11 months in, so I reached the chronic phase already. Looks like my chances are quite bad, but I still don't give up on hope. But your's is still in the acute phase, so maybe it will go away on its own. I really hope for you it will!

      Are you taking any supplements or something? Your action plan looks good! Sleeping a lot and avoiding loud noises is probably the best you can do right now. I also try to be as fit and healthy as possible so that the body can heal.

      Cheers

      Hello Emmi I read your post before now. I can feel your emotion at that time.
      so similar story as me. I wonder that your T is still in the same condition. And what are you do now for recover your ear?

      Now I'm taking vitamins, red ginseng, abalone, Chinese matrimony vine etc.
      I try to eat all of thing which is good for Tinnitus.
      But there is no change now. So little bit afraid.

      We can keep in touch and cheer each other up !
      I hope that you and me endure this harsh time and overcome Tinnitus.
      Someday when we open our eyes we can't hear T.

      Let's try to do all of the method together. Thank you for your reply.

      Cheers

      Be patient. I've abused my ears far more than you have and I'm over 10 years younger than you. I doubt that loud exposure would do any major damage since hearing damage is cumulativ. Our bodies need time to heal. You are doing right in trying to help it heal. I wouldn't say it's permanent until a year. It has been such a short period of time. Relax.

      It's okay. That's the first part of acceptance. I will admit that I cried the first week of having T because it was constant. Now I can't really hear it unless I'm in silence or listen for it.

      @Changwoo,
      Welcome to Tinnitus Talk.
      Tinnitus can be hard going as it invades our quiet time and the unwanted emotions can soon take hold.
      There is help for depression so please don't suffer in silence and reach out for help and support of your doctor.
      MIND and The Samaritans and Mental Health are a great support and medication if needed.
      Depression is nothing to be ashamed of and like myself I am having great support through this bad patch .
      Life can be a rollercoaster but the good times will come back .
      Stay strong and keep posting for support around the clock...lots of love glynis x

      Just keep doing what you are doing. Go on with your life. It is remarkable that you can sleep 10 hours a day. On a good day, the best I can sleep is 7, although I am a "bit" older than you at 44.

      I totally agree with you. In my case club is absolutely loud and I was next to the speaker. Unlucky.

      Make sure to avoid loud noise like your doing
      I don't think diet isn't going to make any difference unless you had some serious deficiencies to start with

      I live in a big city where streets , trains cars or subway are noisy so I wear 31 Db reducing ear muffs most of the time and good 30db plugs in noisy restaurants
