      Hi everyone
      I have tinnitus since November 2015. I woke up one day to ear popping in my right ear. I went to see an ENT & he told me i need surgery to fix a deviated septum and he told me I have T and nothing we can do about it. As days progressed I would hear thumping in both ears, my ears would flutter, i started hearing hissing like static & high pitch ringing. I took off work 6 weeks because I went into a depression & anxiety. I started researching more about tinnitus. I am working again, its hard because the hissing takes my focus away. The T comes & goes its so wierd. When its gone i enjoy those few moments of silence. I am doing yoga (sometimes I hear a ring & it fades off away after class) & I have had 3 accupuncture sessions, that helps me sleep all night & I take no medicines. If I hear motorcycles outside if I am in bed or just inside it makes My ears thump or flutter. I wish it would just go away. I go out Salsa dancing alot & my Dominican bf plays a cow bell with the music playing & I stand by him I think this all may be damaging my ears. My ears are sensitive now & I wear ear plugs to the club & always carry ear plugs with me now. Anyone relate to anything I am going thru. Will the hissing ever go away?

      Great introduction post, @Jovita1969!

      @Phil-O's advice is as good as it gets. I would just add that while your BF isn't looking, that you get a pair of pliers and remove the clapper from his cow bell...:D

      I'm curious why your doctor told you you had to fix your deviated septum? I have a deviated septum too, have had one forever. A few doctors told me they could fix it, but never pressed the issue.
      Is the ringing worse in one ear, or do you have problems with your Eustachian tube on the deviated septum side?

      Both ears affected i think. I hear both of them hissing. I am scared the surgery will make t worse. So i put it off.
