Today i went to see ent specialist for the 3rd time after i have been had T for almost 5 years. Because recently my T just get worse and noticeable. This time i asked the doctor about Acoustic Neuroma that causes tinnitus. He asked me whether do i have hearing loss, dizziness and imbalance? My answers are no. I only have T. And he did the hearing test for me again that prove that my hearing is okay. In conclusion, as i am requesting if i should do a MRI test for my head, the doctor said 99% i dont have acoustic neuroma, he said it is caused by degenerative inner ear nerves due to loud noise exposure. I told him i listen music thru phone and listens phonecalls at the affected ear. Then he said those might be the causes. An MRI test would prove that nothing is wrong. So my question is, Is it true that my T is 99% not cause my this scary condition(acoustic neuroma)? Just a confirmation so that i don't really need to do a mri scan. Because im in asia.. i have little faith with ENTs here that previously doesnt explain anything to me, only asked me to live with it.
