      Tinnitus Since:
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Pregnancy or mild hearing loss.. Who knows.
      I've been scheduled for my Dtap vaccine (whooping cough, most concerning) for several weeks since I'm pregnant however have been turning it down or "forgetting to mention it" because I'm nervous it may cause a reaction/increase to my T. I hate having to live my life this way, but I really want to avoid any ototoxic drugs/vaccines. I researched the vaccine but couldn't find anything specifically stating ototoxiticy of the vaccine.. Anyone have info on this? Being pregnant, these vaccines are pushed heavily onto us since the baby will have no protection from whooping cough if I do not get vaccinated, however I am just really nervous about it..
