      most people I've spoken to had it get a lot better within 18 months and the rest they just got used to. There may be some validity.

      Sadly my tinnitus has been shitty the past 2 days. Probably due to inflammation in sinuses from allergies. Mine are terrible. It's frustrating, but I know it'll calm down again. This happens time to time.

      Is your affected by emotions significantly? Mine really did seem to be getting better but then a friend died and a few other things happened and it got worse again

      I agree with you about inflammation. It may be a factor here, mine gets worse when I have some kind of infection

      Emotions make it harder to deal with it if it's a bad day, but don't make it worse IMO. The only reliable way for me to make it worse is poor sleep our if my bruxism gets out of control. I tend to grind my teeth when stressed out and this gets the TMJ going.

      As to inflammation? Every year I get a 2 week bout of truly awful allergies before I adapt for the year. Last week was the second week of that (it's calming down) and I definitely spiked last week. It's back to my low baseline today. I wasn't surprised given how swollen my sinuses were.

      I dont think these recovery stats are true necessarily. There are people whose T never got better (stayed same throughout), some who has gotten better, some whose has gotten worse. I think that T primarily for most people (not always though) will fade 2-4 months to a mild level, however if your T is blasting for one year or two then it wont get better.

      The recovery stats provide the estimates of the probability of each of the states that you had listed below. So I am not sure why you would say that they are not "true."

      how much time was needed for you to recover after your tauma?
      some peoples ears are stronger than others. I have weak ears and just a motorcycle passing by me can cause a week long spike.

      Tinnitus Since:
      10/15/18
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Indoor Shooting Range (with ear protection)
      Hey Houston, been reading your posts all sound very similar to my story...gun range induced hearing loss one instance 20 minutes of shooting, tinnitus with 50db at 3000hz in right ear and left year im at 25db at 3000hz. I do not "feel" any issue with my left ear so I am assuming that 25db was my level before this trauma took place. Did you ever have a follow up audiogram, did it improve? I am on Day7 since my trauma really sucks tinnitus is incredibly annoying, I hope it and my hearing get better soon or at least eventually. Thanks!

      If you're not better after a year or so, don’t count on it going away. Reality check my friend.

      Conversely, if at the one-year mark you had improved compared to how you were at the 3 or 6 month mark, there is no reason for it to not continue to fade.

      Chronic pain like CPPS can be MUCH MUCH MUCH worse. Well I rather have mild CPPS than a severe tinnitus but other than that...
