      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Hi there, I have to say it's already relieving to find a tinnitus forums. Reading about all your stories.

      Here is my story, I started noticing a tinnitus 4 weeks ago in the morning where everything seems quite.

      2 weeks previous to the tinnitus. I suffered severe tension headache the was related to neck movement. Went to a neurologist, he said I had cervicogenicheadache. I sit in front of the laptop for hours so that seemed logical. He put me on pain killers for 10 days with neck exercises. The headache really improved. But unfortunately, i noticed a tinnitus after that. Went back to the neurologist, he said tinnitus can coexist with neck issues and I will improve as my neck improves. He put me on amitriptyline saying it will help both.

      It has been 4 weeks now. In the past few days, I hear it louder thanbefore. I can't sleep without using white noise. I think I have diplacusis, as I hear people voices and some devices accompanied with other hissy sound. I did 2 pure tone audiometry, came back normal.

      I read about tinnitus and success stories with prednisolone.I want to try it before it's too late. In the other hand, I read about stories where prednisolone made things worse, specially when taken out of the window period.

      Please help,

      Thank you

      Sometimes antidepresants can make tinnitus worse until your brain adapts to the medication the first few weeks.
      Your doctor could try prednisalone and might help settle your tinnitus for a while.....lots of love glynis

      Anitryptaline is a old antidepresant and used for a few things like pain and help sleep as well as lifting moods.

      Ambitryptalian made my tinnitus worse so I stopped taking it.

      I had a recent spike from high decimal sound exposure recently and I'm taking prednisone for it. It's a low dose of 10mg.
