      Tinnitus Since:
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Acoustic Trauma
      Hello, everyone.

      35 year old Norwegian man here.

      I have been struggling with MSI for over three months, and I feel that my right ear (which I've had Tinnitus in since age 13 due to acoustic trauma, I think) clogs up regularly.

      No infection, but my Eustachian tube is a bit narrow, and my eardrum is retracted.

      Yes, I have tried medication, but I'm a firm believer in acupuncture and giving the body time to heal naturally.

      Since I got the infection my T has fluctuated a lot, and it's sometimes on my left side as well. I had a ten year run with no T problems before this... :-(

      Along with fear, anxiety and depression, anger and bitterness is consuming my mind. When I was around 13, a crazy "ADHD-kid" in my neighbourhood fired a cap gun about half a metre from my right ear. It was truly a traumatizing experience, and I truly believe that this episode is the main cause of my T.

      My hearing tests have always come out perfect, and I can hear up to around 14, 15 kHz.

      I just feel so lost and hopeless...

      Praying for better days...

      That's all we can do at the end of the day...

      Ear injury (paintball)
      My friend, I have had some sort of sinus infection since the 26th Dec 2017, and my Tinnitus ramped up to painful levels. I am still trying to find out whats caused the Sinus problem and how it may be related to the Tinnitus.

      All the best to you!
