      I recently had a mole removed from my face and needed 2 local anesthetics. Might have been my imagination but I think my T reduced in volume for a few days after.

      Any link?

      Well, I've heard Lidocaine for example can (temporarily) suppress tinnitus in some cases. I remember some of our members reporting that their tinnitus was suppressed after having been administered local anesthetic (I've also read about a few cases where the same has happened after general anesthesia).

      Some studies:

      Thanks @Markku :) I'm so tempted to ask my GP to give me a local every few weeks ;)
