      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Loud gig/year of loud headphone usage.
      I have read somewhere that THC can cause sounds to be perceived louder as it enhances the sensations and senses.
      I'm not sure if it can make it last this long though.
      A month ago I smoked some weed and ever since then my standard PC noise has been 2-3 times louder I'm hoping it's the THC since my general sound sensitivity the one I mentioned before has gone down I think, still the same noise but it's much less there now.
      I've listened to your advice and asked people around the forum but everyone seems to just go "I don't know" or just say "Nah" I haven't really gotten an answer on if it has any effect.
      So I was wondering if you could share an knowledge on the subject.
      Also I keep thinking about how you said Tinnitus resolves on it's own in most cases and yet I keep finding the same statistic where 50 million Americans have Tinnitus, is the statistic only for how many have HAD it or what?
      I've been working on habituation and so far I've gotten past my Tinnitus, almost past my general sound sensitivity now it's just this new thing that again I'm hoping is a temporary side effect from weed either from THC or from the anxiety it induced that spiked it.
      Thanks in advance.
