      Hello all,

      I am new to this forum so I apologize if I post this on a wrong page. I've read a couple of posts on singing with tinnitus but they don't really answer my specific question so i'll give it a go.

      I am 21 years old and 2 months ago my tinnitus started out of the blue and I haven't been able to identify its cause yet.
      However, I am a professional singer and I wonder if anyone knows if its possible that the overtones of my own voice caused my tinnitus. My tinnitus is extremely high and I am a high soprano and have a lot of natural overtones in my voice.

      I am pretty sure my T isn't caused by hearing loss because of noise surrounding me as I don't work with big orchestras or loud instruments and my ENT concluded that my hearing was extremely good (tested up to 8khz).

      I know this is quite a specific question but maybe someone has any ideas :)

      @Antje , welcome to the forum! You may want to check in with an audiologist just to be sure that your hearing is not impaired. Do you do any recording using headphones or anything similar?

      No I don't really do that.
      Thank you for your reply. Yes, I should probably just visit an audiologist since the ENT only checked until 8khz
