      Hello everyone :) .
      On 22nd of November I realized that I have tinnitus. That day was Friday evening and I was doing regular exercises at my home. Nothing too intense, first I was doing streching exercises for warming up, then few series for abs, few series for biceps and triceps with my dumbbell (dumbell weights 10 kg) and ended my training with few series of push-ups. This wasn't my first day doing this kind of training and I repeat, it was nothing too intense or too exhausting for me because, just ordinary moderate training I used to have primarly for good health. Just to add that during training time, it was complete silence in my room so I wasn't exposed to loud sounds.

      After I finished my training I immediately started to hear/have some kind of loud air flow sound (hard describe that sound) in my ears. Next day I also got a red throat and temperature and on 25th November I went to ear-throat-nose doctor specialist and he prescribed me some antibiotic, some medicament for temperature and B complex vitamins. I also told to my doctor that about 30 days before that training of mine, I was with my friends in a car and we were listening to some pretty loud music but that lasted only for about 10 minutes, so he checked my ears for any case with audiometry and told me that everything is fine with my ear nerves so it seems that loud music is not the cause of my tinnitus because I realized that I have tinnitus immediately after the training. Besides that situation, I wasn't exposed to any loud music or noises, I don't wear headphones and listen anything loud etc... but I realized that my ears are a bit more sensitive to some semi-loud noises because I was cleaning my room with vacuum cleaner and I felt for a few seconds slight pain in my ear when I was near working vacuum cleaner. I've also done all kind of bacterial analysis for both ears, nose and throat and everything was clean and fine. After 4-5 days red throat was healed and I didn't have the temperature anymore but the annoying tinnitus stayed :(.

      Now one more detail, I also realized some time after the training, that when I yawn and when I close my mouth during the yawn, I feel strong air pressure in my right ear and it causes me pain so now when I yawn and when I am closing my mouth I have to close it slowly to avoid that pain. Ear-throat-nose specialist told me that I have problems with my eustachian tubes and prescribed me some spray for the nose but that air pressure and pain in my year when I don't yawn slowly along with tinnitus stays to this day.

      For any case, I also went to the dentist and he said that everything is fine with my teeth.

      After all these events, one strange thing occured, when I was lifting some heavy furniture in my house to move it, my right ear got clogged so I went to neurologist too. I've done detail blood tests with some hormone tests and CD with my scanned neck and all parameters were okay and neurologist prescribed me two medicaments, one of them was based on ginkgo biloba to increase better circulation for the back side of the neck.

      I finished with taking these pills therapy which lasted for 30 last days but nothing changes so I am not sure what to do next and that's the reason why I wrote this topic here :).

      Just to add, I am 28 years old, I have a healthy lifestyle, I am not overweight, I don't smoke, don't drink alcohol, my diet is healthy, everyday I eat fruits and vegetables etc... I just stopped with any kind of physical exercises after I realized I have tinnitus.

      The story is not so short but I just wanted to present you whole history of events so if somehow you could help me :) .

      HI @Peacebringer

      Before the onset of your tinnitus were you are regular user of headphones? Did you frequently attend places were loud music is played, such as clubs or concerts? Do you listen to loud music at home or in the car? Do work in a noisy environment?

      The reasons I have asked the above questions is because exposure to loud noise is the most common cause of tinnitus. Typically, it is using headphones. If yes to any of the questions above, then your tinnitus is probably noise induced. If this is the case I will follow up with some advice that you might find helpful.

      All the best
      Michael

      Hi Michael :) .
      Thanks for the quick replay :) . As for your question, I don't use headphones, I don't work in noisy environment, when I drive car music is regularly set to normal moderate volume and last time I went to the club was about 6 months ago so I am rarely exposed to any loud sounds. The only recent event when I was listening loud music was that one which I mentioned in my first post where I was with my friends in a car and we were listening to loud music but only for about 10 minutes. But I repeat, I realized to have tinnitus after that training of mine which occured one month after I was listening to that loud music with my friends in a car :) . I am not 100% sure but I guess that my tinnitus does not come from exposure to loud music.

      HI @Peacebringer

      Something usually causes the onset of tinnitus but it doesn't seem to be noise induced. Since you are not a user of headphones please stay that way. And you don't listen to overly loud music which is also good. The tinnitus could have something to do with your Ear, Nose and Throat and since they are linked this could be strong possibility. so it was a good idea to see the ENT doctor. Hopefully the tinnitus will reduce with time as you are still in the very early stages. Please click on the links below and read my posts. Try to avoid being in quiet rooms and surroundings especially at night, by using sound enrichment. More about this is explained in the links below.

      I think you'll be okay just give it time and keep away from headphones and loud music.
      All the best

      Michael

      Thanks for these great detailed posts. I will definitely try to avoid my mobile phone and laptop as much as I can and I will track the situation. Also I forgot to mention, my tinnitus sound changes, sometimes is hissing sound, sometimes is air flow sound, sometimes in one ear, sometimes in both ears... One question, should I resume with my trainings or should I wait more?

      Do you have "air flow" sound in both ears or only in the right one?
      And eventhough your right ear got clogged, you don't have any hearing loss on the audiogram?
      Ok for now don't do any weightlifting or any kind of excessive straining for at least a month and a half.

      Thanks for replay Backpacker :). Sometimes both ears, sometimes left one, sometimes right one... But I think most of the time are both left and right. I've done audiometry for both ears and ear-throat-nose doctor specialist told me that everything is fine. After my right ear got clogged ETN doctor said I have problems with my eustachian tubes and prescribed me some nose spray. To not repeat myself, I also went to neurologist and about that you have complete story in my first topic :) . Since then nothing changed.
