      The only thing that I really really really didn't want to have was... Tinnitus

      My name sebastian, 18 year old student from Holland

      One evening I was chatting on the phone with an ex-girlfriend I noticed a very loud noise in my ear, I've always had a very duff sound in my ear but this was something else, like a train breaking it was roaring and beeping. I was struggling and frustrated trying to get to sleep.
      The next day I woke up noticing pressure on my ear and of course the constant screams of what was my tinnitus.
      I've kept it quite for 2 days before telling my mom. "it's just a cold, we all have this" was her response, not believing a word I instantly googled everything to know. Turns out I had a middle ear infectio, should be gone in about noweeks, no worries. A week passes by and I had noticed serious improvements in my T. For 2 days. After that it was back to the same shit. Now about a month later my T fluctuates from 3-8 and I just try to live with it
      The reason why I didn't sign up on the forum earlier is because I just did not want to give in to it. Although all this happend I'm still very positive about the future, this does no mean I don't have my moments of despair and loneliness where I wish it would just be gone, it means I look forward to what all the great things life can offer me. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, so I guess, Tinnitus is just making us a stronger, all day... Every day..

      Hi Sebastian,

      Can you get to an ENT? You may have some hearing loss due to your infection which could cause your T and maybe a steroid would help. Also, you are very new with Tinnitus, which again seems related to your infection. Once it clears you may still have your T go away but I would call an Ears, Nose and a Throat Specialist. Stay positive.

      Danielle.

      Welcome to TT. This is the type of mentality I have been encouraging new members to pursue, however hard it may be at the start or when T is new. Time will be on your side if you keep on being positive and stay calm as well as going back to living. By doing that, it is suggesting to the brain that T is not a mortal threat. Slowly the body learns to back away from monitoring T when it no longer perceives T as a threat. Stress and anxiety are toxic to T. So the more calm and positive, the less stress we have and the easier to habituate to T. Keep up your positive spirit and you should be doing fine over time. God bless.
