      Cause of Tinnitus:
      loud music...history of anxiety/depression...earplugs idk
      I posted yesterday but I think it was too long so nobody commented
      I'll try and keep this short
      Symptoms-
      Ascending/descending medium pitch tone that fades away as the day goes on. This tone also dissapears if I plug my right ear with my finger

      Fans, heaters, and fridges have a trailing tone. The tone is slightly lower than the tone I wake up to. The tone has a pulsing characteristic.

      Hearing test shows above normal hearing with a very slight dip at 4k

      Ears feel slightly clogged especially my right ear.

      I have a history of loud noise exposure especially when it comes to music. Been in bands since highschool I'm now 28.

      Onset of symptoms appeared nearly two weeks after last noise exposure and followed an extremely stressful patch. Symptoms have sustained for almost 4 weeks now

      Ok that's it hopefully someone reads this I'm pretty down right now and feel like I can't talk to my gf or family about it because they just don't get it.

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Probably an ear infection or damage to the eardrums.
      If I had to guess, it's probably an ear infection since it goes away when you plug your ear. Also, clean your ears every week if you don't already. I don't know much about it though, so I could easily be wrong


      Anyways, have a great day. :3
