      Hello all, newbie here.

      About 2 years ago I had received the first part of a Hepatitis B vaccine, the vaccine name is Engerix B, produced by GlaxoSmithKline. I received the vaccine in the afternoon, woke up next day with very high pitched tinnitus, which has continued until this day. As it stands, in the patient information leaflet issued with the vaccine, it is noted that in some very rare cases it COULD cause tinnitus as a side effect.

      The tinnitus is CONSTANT, the frequency is very high and fairly stable, although the intensity seems to fluctuate. Other than stress and tiredness, I have not managed to correlate any triggers or habits that might cause the tinnitus to intensify.

      I have seen 2 separate ENTs, 2 Neurologists, had two brain and ear MRIs and a CT scan. All findings 'seem' normal. I have just been told to deal with it as there is nothing that can be done about this.

      From my own personal tests, it seems the frequency I hear is somewhere in the region of 13500-14500 HZ.

      I am looking into going down the Acoustic CR Neuromodulation route, but I am not sure it works for such high frequencies. Has anyone had any positive results with this type of therapy?

      If this sounds familiar to anyone, or you have any words of wisdom, please do share.


      P.S - If anyone has any advice regarding possible compensation from my healthcare provider or the vaccine manufacturer, please let me know.

      Same here, after last shot... next day silence is hell. I am 7500hz but same intensity changes.
      I was also diagnosed with Hypothyroid after I started feeling sluggish etc. didn't have this till after the shots either.
      of all the odds what a crappy lottery winner. you are not alone.
      I am on Levothyroxine for Thyroid but it isn't enough and my tinnitus seems worse.
      Distraction is the key right now, sleep sucks... especially if I finally get a few hours then wake... then I am up till exhaustion.

      Many vaccinations contain mercury, and other toxic chemicals.

      Refer to Dr Lawrence Wilson's site on vaccinations..

      He states that 'extremely toxic chemicals are always added to all vaccines. They include mercury, aluminium, formaldehyde, acetone, lead, cadium, and others...they are highly toxic for everyone. For instance, they are all NEUROTOXIC. This means that they impair and can destroy brain function,..Mercury is probably the worst single offender...

      Hi There AC_Spiderman,

      How is your tinnitus doing nowadays? Any change?
      Have you by any chance found any definitive or even circumstantial proof (or a qualified medical opinion) that the tinnitus was indeed caused by that F***** Engerix B vaccine?

      BTW - my tinnitus is just as bad as it was, maybe even worse, it's hard to tell nowadays. The only 'habituation' that has occurred with me is that my life is total crap and I have to fight off suicidal thoughts multiple times a day. At this point, I feel as if I had no partner and family, I would indeed go for the only cure (currently) known for Tinnitus - Death! That being said - THIS IS NOT A SUGGESTED COURSE OF ACTION FROM ANY TINNITUS SUFFERER, PLEASE DON'T LET MY HORRIFIC EXPERIENCES AND SUICIDAL THOUGHTS AFFECT YOU.
      As above... I can only dream of that day...

      Also, if anyone here has any information regarding the connection between Engerix B and Tinnitus, please, please, please share it with me. (or any other vaccinations and tinnitus for that matter)

      May the sound of silence be with you all!

      I have practiced medicine for 36 years and I have given thousands of hep B immunization and I never noted tinnitus has a side effect in patients.

      My story is pretty much exactly the same: Vaccinations = ENT Scans, the lot, useless! Tried many natural remedies but nothing so far has worked. Thinking of trying injecting organic castor oil / magnesium into my ears with an eye dropper. That will be next.

      Hepatitis B Vaccine
      I am a 41 year old healthy male. I have zero medical issues besides this annoying screeching train in my left ear. Long story short, I received the Hepatitis B vaccine. It was offered through my work as I work on a military installation base around new trainees. The shots were administered at an offsite clinic. It was administered into my upper left arm.

      Within 2 days of 1st shot is when the constant ringing started in my left ear.

      Visited an ENT doctor. Did hearing test and had to get an MRI done on my brain. Boy was that a nervous week of panic and anxiety.

      My question is has anybody experienced tinnitus from the vaccine?
