      Tinnitus Since:
      2010 or 2011
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Severe Traumatic Brain Injury
      I am a sufferer of a severe TBI in 2009 and I have had tinnitus everyday 24 hours a day since late 2010 or early 2011. Mine is almost 99% of the time in the right ear with the occasional both ears or just the left (very rare) that happens. There are times where it is very loud and others where it is moderate in volume. It always seems to be the same hz (guessing between 10k and 16k hz) pitch and tone with an occasional variance in hz. What is interesting to me is I have also suffered from hyperacusis since the accident in 2009 where I am able to even seemingly hear multiple levels in all different types of sounds (even with my noise canceling headphones on and light playing classical music) when I ride my bike. I wonder if anyone else has the same type of symptoms? I used to sleep on my right side (for the first thirty years of my life) I had to learn how to sleep on my left. I have maintained a very positive, optimistic and hopeful attitude and I hope all of you can somehow manage to be the same. It isn't easy, I know, don't give up one yourself or others... there are people in the world that care.

      not sure
      Welcome and thank you for that positive message. I have ultra high pitch T and hyperacusis too a few years back. Like you I learn to be positive, optimistic and hopeful about the future, and it has made a huge difference in the quality of my life. Hope you will stay around and share your insights and perhaps write a success story with more detail or your T journey. Take care & God bless.
