      So I'm 3 weeks into my noise induced tinnitus.

      Overall I'm feeling better, I actually rarely notice the ringing anymore. I really have to look for it to find it, and when I do it's more of a hiss now than a ringing.

      I feel like I have turned a corner and may be on the road to recovery.......that is until I put earplugs in. And there the ringing is. Loud and in my face. It's really making me take a step backwards, and now I think the "reduced ringing" might just be misplaced optimism :(

      Of course it will be louder with earplugs in, you are blocking out external sounds.

      Well I know the logic behind why it's louder, but I thought my tinnitus was going away and it seems to be just as loud as it was when I put plugs in.

      Well, Axl, you have been playing in a heavy metal band for around 26 years, what do you expect.
