      Tinnitus Since:
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      loud music
      So for couple of weeks there's gonna be some hornets flying around the area I live in and I'm a bit anxious about it. They can break the sound barrier and make loud noises and I'm not looking forward to that. Could the breakage of sound barrier be harmful to your ears? Is it possible to get louder tinnitus because of it? My ears seem to be very sensitive of loud noises so this whole army practicing is Super Great. I'm seriously gonna lock myself indoors for the next weeks, I'm already freaking of all the super loud motorcycles that teens drive now that the summer is coming. Does anyone know about this?

      Tinnitus Since:
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      loud noise and very bad sickness
      If the sound is too loud, then wear earplugs. I remember when they were building a new house next to mine and the drilling was insane and very loud. I had to wear earplugs for almost 7 month every day. amazon has some cool earplugs that people wear and go to concerts with. i bought 2 of them for the motley crue concert in vegas and they are amazing.

      Yes, loud sound can and will make the tinnitus louder, so please protect your ears :)
