      Hello Teresa, welcome to this wonderful forum. Are you still on the meds? If possible, chuck them and try gettin out of the depression yourself. I'm hoping/guessing the increase in your T is temporary. Keep us updated on your progress. (y)

      Do you have it in both the ears or just one? You can go through this forum for a tremendous amount of good information regarding tinnitus. You can even ask around people with similar conditions like yours for better information regarding your T.

      Hi,i just have T in the right ear.I have seen ent and had brain scan,no abnormal results.I do have hearing loss and probably will need hearing aid.It started in 2008.i had travelled to India 3 times that year,9 hour flight from uk.I had vertigo .which suddenly went away.I also had giardia ,parasitical infection on my return in the june of 2008.i had 2 course of very strong anti biotics.My T started about sept of that year.so could be any reason it started.I hope it will calm over time as it did before.

      It certainly will! I hope so too. Just take care of your health. Get your hearing checked and get the hearing aid if the ENT says so. Many have mentioned that getting a hearing aid helps the T, as it increases hearing and decreases the perception of your T. The spike in your T could be the effect of hormonal changes, so it may go away after a while. Hang in there. Good luck! :)
