      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Still not sure. TMJ & Neck Problems most likely.
      Developed tinnitus about a month ago. Still do not know the cause but I am going thru all of the diagnostics with my doctors. Tinnitus seems to be stable at this point. Prior to getting tinnitus, I surfed every other weekend, but have not been back on the water since developing tinnitus.

      Just wanted to know if anybody has experiences (positive or negative) surfing with tinnitus along with any tips, suggestions, or other advice. I recently learned about earplugs people can use when swimming or showering. Seems like these would work for surfing as well as long they do come out on the water. I live in the US Pacific Northwest so a wet suit, hood, boots, and gloves are required even in the summer so earplugs will probably fit pretty snug in full surf gear.

      Wishing all peace and quiet. Thanks.
