      Trying to see if there is any correlation between when T started and a traumatic event in you're life, and what was the time span between trauma and T.

      My T started three months after a 4X open heart surgery.

      Tinnitus Since:
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Damage to my inner ear as a result of barotrauma on a long-distance airplane flight, sparked by eustachian tube dysfunction, caused my tinnitus, I believe. (although not every doctor I have seen agrees. But most do).

      However, I had gone through three years of incredible stress prior to this incident, due to rolling lay-offs and increased demands at work. I believe while barotrauma pulled the trigger on my tinnitus, extreme stress loaded the gun.
