      I would like to know because I am a strong believer it will go away and I'd like to know what happens to people who said it went away

      Probably not. Most people who are here are new T sufferers seeking for help and comfort. Vast majority of people with T carry on with their lives and are not here either.

      I wish I saw more success stories... I'm 17 and really starting to give up hope that I'll ever be normal again. :(

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Unclear. Inflammatory allergic reaction/AIED
      Mine used to be constant, but over the past few months I have longer and longer periods without it. I have had tinnitus in ever changing forms for 20 months and I still think that one day mine will eventually go, or at least be quiet enough that I will almost never notice it. I enjoyed total silence twice this morning for 15 and 5 minutes.

      Having said that, my tinnitus didn't start like anyone else I have ever encountered, nor is the suspected cause very common. As I've said to other people though, I don't think it does any harm to hope that it will go away, but at the same time, you need to continue to live your life with it.

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Punch/kick to the right ear
      I had T on my right ear for 2,5 weeks and it disappeared completely 100%. Then one month later I got hit on the same ear and got it again and now it's been 4 months since onset. Feels like it's here to stay this time.

      acoustic trauma
      I'd say that after a certain amount of time it is pretty unlikely that Tinnitus will disappear. In early stages it certainly can go away but most of of the people who had it for a few months to years will have it forever. It can certainly get better and you can learn to ignore it but it doesn't go away. Of course there a exceptions for everything.

      Unknown
      Mine is similar to Owen. I started having tiny improvements a few weeks after onset, the improvements were more frequent early on, but I still notice small improvements now, just less frequent. By improvement I mean quieter or not hearing it at all. I also have a very rare type of tinnitus and normal hearing, I have pulsatile T of neurological origin that is extremely somatosensory. Overall I would say mine is 85% better after 14 months, but I still have brief setbacks once in a while.

      You don't mention if your tinnitus is mild, moderate or severe, or how intrusive it is. If it's mild, there's a good chance it will go away, meaning it will fade so far into the background you'll never notice it.

      If it's moderate or severe, try the Back to Silence method recommended by @I who love music. The tinnitus doesn't actually "go away"; if you listen for it you can hear it, but otherwise it isn't noticeable at all. Works for some people, not for others. AFAIC, if I didn't hear my T, I wouldn't care if it still existed. It's like an obnoxious neighbor, if you never see them or hear them, it doesn't matter if they live next door.

      If you are only 14 you have a good chance that at least one day it will go away or there will be treatment for it. Some people have reported theirs went away even after 1 year. Keep your awesome attitude. Unfortunately those that got lucky and don't have it anymore are probably not around here to talk about it. You could look for people that had it at one point on the forum and never came back. That's usually a sign that at least they are not bothered about it enough to bother posting about it anymore.

      Yes. Had it for four months in 2010. Horrible, just disappeared one day.

      Got a very minor case again recently for 2 months after listening to headphones but luckily it went away again.

      Going to take every precaution necessary to make sure there is no strike 3.

      Good point. I spent a fair bit of time on here when mine started, but since it faded a lot, and I got used to it somewhat, I've almost forgot about this place. So yeah, there could be people out there whose tinnitus has gone, who forgot about forums years ago.
