      Hello,
      This is my story on how my t started. English isnt my first language and i have to do courses since 12' so sorry for my mistakes and misunderstuding. All started about a year ago. When i was trying to sleep i was hearting that ringing but just a little, not even noticable. I thought it was an electrical device that was making that sound, so one day i unpluged all devices from my room. That ringing didnt stoped. I said ok it will be something from another room so i didnt gave alot of attention. Meanwhile i loved to go to partys and concerts and had that ringing after leaving the place but after a good nap all was desapearing. So i didnt know that can be permanent. Before 3 months i got with a friend at a concert with very powerful sound system and punk/thrash music over it. After some hour at the front alot of people was gathered and dancing so i joined them. After dancing as i was exhausted i sat by speaker (my bigger mystake). So after the concert as my father getting me home my ears was ringing as always but this time TOO loud. I didnt even listen to him from the ringing. So as i was full tired (5am) i gone to bed and slept immediately and thought the next morning i will be fine. The next morning i got up with ear pain and t. The pain was crazy i couldnt do nothing. I got a warmer put it on my ear and for the rest of the day i was on bed. I told that to my parents so after a few days we gone to doctor. She tested my ears and said i didnt have any hearing loss and that the ringing will pass at 2 weeks. So i had a hope that it will gone. After 2 weeks the ringing was there and i was super sensitive to every thing i hearing, my ear was hurtingn from any noise. After some weeks rest my t was there but i had no pain. So i started again going to partys with earplugs but i noticed that sometimes the noise was causing pain to my ears. After leaving the partys i was having a little louder t but after 10 - 20 minutes where the same lowered t again. That way i added to my left ear a lower pitch t. So i was searching what's that ringing and i after research i end up joining this forum. The last 2 weeks i feel a little pain on my left ear and i think its caused by my throat which is upset. I have stoped going to partys and hearing loud music lately for not worsen my situation and also because i feel very sensitive and my ears pain. I havent followed any treatment because i havent found any but ive started taking some pills 1 month now which they are 100% bio cause i dont want drug effects in my body. They' re name is memovigor 2 and it says that its nouring nerve endings. After ending my pills (its saying 3 month for result) i will post my effect. Thats my story and the most times i feel happy but these days i have a depression i think because concerts and partys was the only thing i was having fun. Now im all day home and all my friends go to clubs events etc. Im only 16 and i hope a therapy will be invented!

      T really sucks . I had to give up movies, listen to music at my stereo system at high volume and so many other things.
      Just an advice. Stop going to party's like those. Now it's bad, but bearable. Don't make things worse for you.

      Get some NAC capsules, it'll help protect your hearing, and go to an ENT to get some steroids very quickly! You might have a window of opportunity, so go and see an ENT as soon as possible. Good luck

      Magnesium is also worth taking from the viewpoint of "can't hurt, might help".

      Good luck, you're still young so you have that going for you, your body can heal in ways that older bodies cannot. You don't really need to worry about this being permanent for several more months, but you have definitely damaged your ears even if that doesn't show up on a normal hearing test, so be careful and probably no more live music without earplugs.

      Steroids are what an ENT can give you. They reduce inflammation. Many people find that taking steroids has helped reduce the inflammation and reduced their tinnitus.

      You might not get that side-effect, everyone is different. Really you shouldn't be delaying these steroids. Just get them as soon as possible.

      memovigor 2 is an Italian product, i believe it is only marketed in Italy and Greece. Absolutely and utterly useless, it just contains small doses of ginko biloba, some magnesium and other antioxidants.

      Just returned from the ENT. She said i dont have to take steroids as they help only a few days after the noise exposion. Also, to continue taking those memovigor2 pills and to do an MRI or CT scan at two months if T havent stoped. For the pain she said i had irritated throat and my left nerve cramped so thats causing little pains.

      So your ENT thinks that you should get an MRI after two months to diagnose what? It is obvious that your t has been caused by noise exposure. She also thinks that a short course of corticosteroids is useless, however you should keep taking a useless and costly anti-oxidant containing magnesium and some sort of chinese dung/plant extract.
      Right.
      You actually paid that ENT for all these excellent pieces of advice?

      "Some exta information i forgot earlier" It doesnt seem i got an irritation in ear so an mri wont help me diagnose something. Also if i do mri my T will get increased as she said cause mri got a loud sound or something like that. Also suggested taking corticosteroids only if i got pain but i dont have now(thankfully). And memovigor 2 has helped alot of people with T so i dont think you must judge it before trying it. :beeranimation:

      Maybe im gonna tell her to give me some steroids for a short time. I have T 3 months now so im not sure if they gonna help me. But short time use on healthy people doesnt seem to have so bad effects. Maybe i wil give them a try as @Danny Boy said.

      That's the first time I've heard that, quite creative, I'm sure your ENT knows better.

      Like who?
      Memovigor might help you if your t is caused by some serious Vitamin B, E or Selenium deficiency... Pretty long shot.
      If your t is caused by loud noise exposure it will do absolutely nothing.

      Also what corticosteroids do you suggest? I know, cant anyone play the role of doctor but ive heard really bad stories of xanax (if this is a corticosteroid, im little confused)

      All corticosteroids have a similar mechanism of action and side effect profile. All corticosteroids are roughly/basically the same drug (actually they are synthetic products that mimic the behaviour of an important hormone that naturally occurs in the body).
      What sets them apart is the dosage (eg. 50mg plain old cortisone is roughly equivalent to 1mg dexamethasone).
      I can't really suggest any corticosteroid, that is something that you should discuss with your doctor.

      Xanax is an anxiolytic and sedative benzodiazepine, it has nothing to do with corticosteroids.
