      I have tinnitus is both ears why is this does it mean both my ears are screwed? my hearing test says I have normal hearing for my age (22) .

      Do you think that assuming I have hearing damage would actually affect my hearing without having hearing loss?

      Tinnitus Since:
      Tinnitus is more common to be in both ears than one. Your hearing can be normal and still have tinnitus.

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Listening to in-ear headphones & playing in a band

      You can easily have hearing loss to where you still have a normal frequency range of hearing but you have tinnitus. The tinnitus is from damage to the nerves/neurons in your ears that connect your hair cells to your brain. They are very susceptible to damage from noise.
