      Tinnitus Since:
      07/2015
      Hi, I realise my condition isn't serious, but it is a worry and any information would be appreciated.
      Last week I was unaware that my ipad was on full volume when I clicked on some very loud music wearing in-ear headphones - so loud that it made my ears hurt. Even though it was for a second or two before I pulled the headphones off, it's left me with a high pitch ringing. I've experienced ringing before after very occasionally hearing loud music, and it goes away after a day or so - but I know what I have now is different somehow. Has this happened to anyone else? Could it be temporary (I've had it a week), what is the outlook? Thank you.

      If it's been there for a week , it's best to go to the ENT check if you suffered from hearing loss and he will give u a course of predisome (sterioids) pills they might help if taken early , don't just "wait it out "

      Sadly nobody can tell you if it's temporary or not. I suggest going to see an ENT and getting some steroids. Although personally, I would get some trobalt.

      Man , why go to such a harsh drug with harsh side effects if it just started ?

      I won't argue , cause I know nothing about the drug and how it works , but I personally wouldn't turn directions towards it if it's still earlier than 6 months , there have been cases where t fades away with time , if ears kept rested and protected ,

      Sounds like a plan! Also get some perampanel...You'll be the first to try it for tinnitus...Way safer than trobalt.

      Personally, I wouldn't waste your time or money on LLLT...

      "The word 'tinnitus' comes from the Latin word for 'ringing'. It is the perception of sound in the absence of any corresponding external sound, which is generated by the sufferer’s own auditory pathways. The location of the sound may be difficult to pinpoint, but it may be heard in one ear, in both ears or inside the head. The noise may be low, medium or high-pitched. There may be a single noise or multiple components. The noise may be continuous or it may come and go. Tinnitus can arise from many possible different causes, and is often accompanied by hearing loss. It is a common condition which affects over 10% of the population, although many cope well with the symptoms. However, for up to 1% of the population, it brings considerable suffering.

      Many treatment options are tried, most with limited success. They range from drugs affecting the central nervous system to electrical treatments and auditory and cognitive behavioural therapies.

      Research shows that tinnitus arises within the central nervous system, and may be caused by increased neural activity in regions of central auditory pathway. Thus treatments for tinnitus need to focus on targets within the brain, and not the cochlea."

      @Danny Boy if hearing loss is recovered within 6 months chances of tinnitus fading away is higher And there was a lot of positive experiences with dr wilden well id say 50 50

      Thanks guys for your information about possible early treatments - I'll look into them. I'm seeing my GP Monday, so I'll ask about going to ENT. The high pitch sound seems to be getting worse, but I guess I'll just have to wait and see.

      hearing loss?
      Sorry to hear about you ear ringing. I myself am trying to cope w/ this for 2 weeks now. Appt. w/EENT this month. Hearing test today showed moderate hearing loss (In desperation swung into a hearing aid place and got tested for free)... Of course I ordered the "hearing aids' to mask the noise.....we'll see...
