      Cause of Tinnitus:
      exostosis and infection and ruptured eardrum
      I was diagnosed with severe exestosis of my right ear , I had my ears cleaned by an ent specialist and ended up with infections and a ruptured ear drum as it is so severe that he couldn't see into my ear. I used sofrodex which i now find can be atopic and cause tinnitus. I am booked for surgery and my surgeon tells me the tinnitus may improve.
      I have been seeing my chiropractor for cervical adjustments and using an stretch excercise band vertically for my neck and have noticed a definite improvement.

      I thought I would update this. I had pretty bad post surgery complications but the issue of the bone over the ear has been addressed and surgery has worked. The ear exostosis (surferes ear) is clear not to be mistaken for swimmers ear has been addressed in the left ear. The left ear canal is clear and now I can hear out of it and the tinnitus has reduced from unbearable to point of stopping me functioning to manageable. For a time I experienced what it must be like to be loosing hearing badly and having loud ringing and I feel for anyone who deals with that every day. Mine is up and down. After surfing with ear plugs it is much worse. Noise of power tools or driving and it is much worse. I sit here now in bed 6.30am and I can hear it over the bird song. Not over the rain. High pitched ring. I Tune in and out of it. It’s not great but you know what. It isn’t as bad as it can be and I am very grateful for that. Someone on here motivated me by saying their ringing was a a reminder each day to be grateful for what you have. There is always the more unfortunate out there. I think he said something like that anyway.
      If any surferes out there have similar problems feel free to get in touch. There isn’t much info out there I know. Regards.
