      Cause of Tinnitus:
      noise induced
      When i woke up this morning i was laying in bed and was thinking holy crap its gone!! I enjoyed that until my daughters baby monitor went off and i heard my ear start to eeee than i gradually got horrible..worse than the last 2 day...what gives?! If anything i thought it would have been a better day. Anyone experience this? Im 3 weeks in with noise induced. If it is going to ever get better does it just stop and never or does it fade.

      I had the radio on for a few hours and it seems to have make my t horrible. Maybe the static sounds made it worse? ! Ive noticed that rain drops masker makes it worse and a fan noise masker makes it better.

      Really don't know
      On the 18th of this month it will be 3 months since I got T. After 2 months I have been able to sleep without masking it. Sometimes I feel it has faded a lot... Sometimes I'm not sure because it gets a little louder.. Not like on the beginning though. At this point I feel distracted by other things I could say most days 60% of the time I don't hear my T or I'm not really bothered by it.. I feel it will fade completely at some point but I'm not sure... I have not taken any benzos or AD medicatios... I had really rough days but I went cold turkey because I was afraid of dependence ... I has gotten better... And I sure hope it continues to get better... Or it goes away... Hope you feel better...

      Accustic tramma due being too close to a fire craker when I was a kid
      We all know that tinnitus has a mind of it's own, 2 days ago mine was screaming, today I have to strain to here it. I never know what to except. But the good news is that it goes back down to my base line so I'm ok with it. Sleep is the best thing for me when I have a spike, after a good night sleep I'm usally fine when I wake up.

      Try and keep possitive

      Good to know..im pretty new at this and any info helps! I thought it was a good sign that it was basically gone. Got pretty disappointed when it came back with a vengeance.

      So im guessing that it just usually fades until hopefully it completely goes. I did eat a pizza pop today..lol need to go for groceries. And my t was horrible ....do u think the pizza pop contributed to it?

      Hi. I've had tinnitus for 7 weeks now. I will say that if you read my initial post I was an anxious, desperate mess. T completely ruined my life. Mine was noise induced as well, and I have moderate hearing loss in the high frequency range. I did 10 days of high dose steroids within 4 weeks of the onset of T. While the medication was terrible, it did help me a lot at reducing the level. I have noticed especially that for four days now, my T is basically gone. I don't hear it. I have to actively try to hear it, and for the 80% of the day I don't hear it or think about it. But along with the steroids I stopped reacting to it. I did my best to completely ignore it, and I chose to do all the things I had stopped doing- having a glass of wine, seeing my girlfriends, etc. So I am not sure if it's because I am habituating or if my T is really disappearing. I just say I live for the day and the moment, and if tomorrow is a bad T day and it's back, that's okay too, because I know and I believe that I will have a good T day again. It's hard to believe within the first couple weeks, but try to not focus on it going away, just focus on the moment. Hope this helps!

      Can you tell me what steroid you got? Was it drops and is it important to take in the beginning? Is 3 weeks on too late to take them? I will go to my doc tomorrow and ask for some. I did have something called ciprodex but i don't think it helped.

      Hi! I just responded to your private message. It's extremely important to take them at the first onset of noise induced T (the acute phase). Some people on this board will say that it should be done within 48 hours, but my ear doctor said the are most optimal if done within the first 3 months. I took them at 4 weeks. Good luck! Please update us.

      @shantelle ... I really don't know. All started when I experienced numbness in my face and head pressure... Then T appeared. I do have moderate hearing loss in my right ear which I've had for more than 3 years and dos not have T. I really don't know what happened... I've had a great week but today since I did not have a good night sleep and my kids are sick my T seems louder, not like when onset but more bothersome... I really hope it goes down soon... This T situation is annoying ! Hopes your T goes away soon!

      When it comes to tinnitus, acoustic trauma, and steroids, I think opinions from both forum members and physicians are probably "all over the place" - but here is one specific study that highlights the relevance of (very) early intervention:
      The last sentence is particularly telling: "In spite of the lack of control group, our data demonstrated the possible effectiveness of the immediate onset of treatment of AAT."

      The reason for the above is probably due to physiological mechanisms of the inner ear:

      It is always siad that cortisone only helps the first few weeks but according to this old study it seams as Cortisone can have good results even long time after onset. Had a friend that had a cortisone treatment for other reasons long after she got T. As a bonus her T went much lower.
