My name is Mike. I've had tinnitus for more than 7 years. The onset of the tinnitus was approximately 4 weeks after a car accident in which I experienced a neck injury [whip lash]. I've had MRI's and X-Rays and neither showed anything remarkable. The past 3 years my tinnitus was under-control. I had been taking 0.5mg two times each day of Klonopin from January 2009 to November 2012 nearly 4 years. In September of this year I was in a bicycling accident in which I collided with a car and re-injured my neck. My tinnitus didn't change until the end of October. I was taking Percocet prescribed by my doctor for pain. I took a double dose and it made me nauseated and made my tinnitus raise in volume. I was sure that after sleeping off the nausea things would go back to usual but the tinnitus never went back down in volume. It's intolerable! And this is after 7 years of living with tinnitus. The doctor raised my Klonopin prescription by 1.0mg to 1.5mg daily. This lowered the volume to an extent but it's still intolerable. I don't want to live like this. I'm in New York and if anyone has any ENT's or psychiatrists that they've had positive experience with I'm very interested.
