Hello everyone, I know I am new to this forum, but I've had tinnitus for over a year now. I am pretty sure it was noise induced. Anyway, I recently punctured myself with a rusty keychain. I am planning to go in for a tetanus shot tomorrow, but I of course am worried about it exacerbating my tinnitus. I read that if you are getting a shot to treat a recent wound, then they give you something extra, which is what concerns me. I did read one post on a forum somewhere of someone complaining that they got tinnitus after a tetanus shot, but only one. I didn't find anything about tetanus vaccine and ototoxicity, but I am still concerned and in a bit of a panic, wondering which is worse, risking getting tetanus or risking my tinnitus getting worse. Any advice or help as soon as possible (as I am likely going in for the vaccine in within the next 12 hours) would be much much appreciated. Thank you, Bobby Edit: I got the year wrong, I've had tinnitus since november 2012... it's been a really, really long day and night.
