Hi, My name is Paul. I came down with Tinnitus in June 2014, after photographing a speedway event...despite wearing ear plugs. I went to my local gp and he said my ears were full of wax (I need to get this done every couple of years or so). After syringing I still had ringing in my left ear. He told me it could be permanent. A visit to an audiologist showed I had some high frequency hearing loss in both ears...more in the left ear. A 6KHz notch is causing tinnitus in my left ear. I went to a ENT in July 2014 who told me he expected my Tinnitus to go. It's now January 2015 and I still have it. I've tried antidepressants, but didn't like the side effects and they didn't seem to do any good anyway. I am a high school classroom music teacher and have become very depressed due to the Tinnitus. I try, however, to remain positive but am feeling hopeless at this point. Some days the Tinnitus is barely noticeable, maybe once or twice a week if I'm lucky. I'm on school holidays at present, but the Tinnitus has actually been worse despite trying to keep myself busy. I play sport each week and eat healthily. I reduced sugar to almost nil, and don't take alcohol. I now weigh 66kgs...normally 72kgs (a flatter belly...which is good...never had a weight issue My anxiety seems to make it worse. I've seen a psychologist but that didn't help. I've researched all the so called cures...revers my tinnitus is the latest one...almost purchased it except that it seems like a scam. Not sure how long I can cope with this.
