      Tinnitus Since:
      Dear members,
      I need your help. I have T for about 8 months now. It was only in my left ear and I was coping with it. But recently i was holding my 1yr old in my lap and he out of excitement shouted at the top of his voice 2inches away from my left year. since then i hear whooshing shrill tone in my left ear and to make it worse my righy ear also now has this eeeeeeeennnn sound. i want to know is my aon has caused a permanent damage or if my T will go back to the base line??

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      not sure
      Welcome to TT. It is likely to be an acoustic trauma to the left ear. Perhaps you can get some prednisone treatment to see if this will help. It is hard to tell if it is permanent or not as we are not doctors here. But generally, the ears will take some time to settle down after an acoustic trauma. Try to give it some time and don't panic and stress out, as these bad emotions can aggravate T. Make sure you have good sleep and perhaps take some supplements to help the ear healing and calming the nerves.

      Members here often recommend some good supplements, such as NAC, Magnesium, Zinc, B12, D3, etc., and reduce intake of salt, sugar, MSG, caffeine, alcohol etc. You may also want to help yourself to get more sleep. Sleep deprivation is one sure way to fire up T. Get some bed time masking such as a sound machine or a sound pillow etc., so you can fall asleep better. Instead of sleep meds from the doctor, you can try natural alternatives such as Camomile tea, Hops, Valerian tablets, Melatonin etc. Check out this site on using natural herbs for sleep problem:


      If the ringing is causing too much nerves, perhaps try masking it. Here are some sites for masking alternatives.

      TT's own audio player with great masking sounds:

      If you need more masking sounds for PC, here is free ‘aire freshener’:

      Rain sounds are soothing indeed. How about making your own rain sounds with this rain generator:
