Dear friends, I have been following the forum on and of for 2 years now. But never signed up. I have tinnitus since 1999 after acoustic trauma shooting with Kalashnikov when i was in the army without ear protection. Tinnitus never bothered my until before 2 years. Since then it was only getting worse and worse. I saw ENT twice by now was told e have high frequency hearing loss. The first time i was prescribed Betaserk it did not do anything for my tinnitus . My resent visit to ENT was quite disappointing he told me nothing could be done and that i will get use to it and also that it will not get any worse than that. How stupid i was to believe him that it will not get worse. It got so much worse that i could hardly exist. I have never believe this noise could be so loud that even the train in the underground can not mask it.
