      Tinnitus Since:
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Loud gig/year of loud headphone usage.
      For the last month I have been plagued by something new.
      Some sounds produce a ring like after tone which had developed after being exposed to a very loud environment.
      I have also gotten a new tinnitus sound, a electrical crickety echo kind of sound and of course this sound is made louder by some sounds for a second.
      At first I though this was hyperacusis but it doesn't hurt and it changes with time, if I'm in a loud environment it changes to be more present, if I don't pay attention to it it reduces.
      So is this what you would call reactive tinnitus? if so what are the chances that it's permanent rather than a form of a spike?

      the chance it is permanent is 38.7%

      maybe it is? not everyone agrees with the definition...
