      Following up on John's reply, how many injections did you have? And how long after your hearing loss did you start injections?

      Just one and it was about 7 weeks after tinnitus started. I think my hearing loss pre existed tinnitus.

      I’m not sure how common it is for ENTs to perform this procedure, you might need to get with an otologist. I did. Some might be more willing than others. IT Dexamethasone is referred to as salvage therapy following an oral steroid course. You might find an otologist who will do it as first line but I suspect this is quite uncommon and outside standards of care (which classifies it as salvage).

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      1 Moderna Vac, Noise and stress I guess, its killing me
      Anyone gotten the shots several months after the damage was done and yet had tinnitus lowered?

      I am on death row with tinnitus since my worsening on April 26th and I desperately need stability.

      @Travis Henry, I had my shots 2.5 months after onset. Oral steroids did nothing for me, so I didn't think injections would either. But after the 3rd one it got much better.

      Did the injections help with your hearing loss / hyperacusis? And did the new tones subside?
