      Tinnitus Since:
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      car accident
      Hi, I had a car accident 31 years ago and rolled 7 times and hit a pole. The left side of my head was smashed and I had to have my left ear canal reconstructed. The tinnitus started right away as soon as I came to and hasn`t stopped.

      I have had at least three surgeries on the canal and my eardrum was found to be perforated from another time. I was also told that both my eardrums were perforated at some point in childhood.

      I have had testing done and people looked at/in my ear but no one has ever done anything because of all the other surgeries and health issues.

      I did try some over the counter medication and it made me feel strange.

      Any help or advice would be extremely welcome. Thanks.
