I got tinnitus 12/26... I think because my headphones had boosted high frequencies I didn't know about. Ringing in ears, sensitivity to sound, muffled sensations, pressure fluctuations, etc. saw an ent a few days ago and they said I had slight hearing loss in left ear at 4hz. Also prescribed me methylprednisolone. I was going to start immediately but my house in New Orleans got robbed and I had to travel and didn't wanna deal with side effects while I was down there. So now I'm back up north and the T has gone down since the onset. It really doesn't bother me now and is fairly quiet-- only detectable in very quiet settings. Is there still a benefit to taking the tapered 6 day course of methylprednisolone? I wouldn't mind completely curing my tinnitus but not at the risk of awful side effects or making it worse. I'm a musician- my hearings important to me and I've decided to wear earplugs and shun headphones! What do you guys think? Has the window of this drugs efficacy for me passed?
