Hi all, Three months ago I attended an electronic concert which gave me tinnitus two weeks later..and my ear plugs (which I had in my ears for every second of the show) apparently didn't help in preventing it. I did NOT have tinnitus before this gig other than occasional fleeting tinnitus. I suspect that my hearing system was brought out of balance by a few deep and very loud bass drops that entered the cochlea through bone conduction. The companies that market ear plugs do not warn about hearing damage through bone conduction so I hope many people will find this post through Google and realize that wearing ear plugs during music concerts and festivals can still be insufficient. Anyway, four weeks after onset of tinnitus I had a course of Prednisolon. I have the opportunity to do infusion therapy in Germany which will be a combination of prednisolon and pentoxifylline (trentol). The first (tablet) prednisolon course didn't really have an effect on me. Do you guys think it's worth it to try the infusion therapy in addition to this? Or is this outright dangerous? I'd like to add that my tinnitus is not of the tonal type. It's hissing all the way and it switches from left to right on a daily basis. It is never in two ears at the same time. Many thanks for your time!
