      Hello everybody,

      I developed an extremely weird form of tinnitus 5 months ago after drinking a small amount of chlorine dioxide diluted in water (3 drops). I took it for digestive issues before in much larger doses and had no problems. However, this time, on the same day a weird tinnitus in the form of lasting tinnitus "waves" coming when moving my head, especially tilting it forward. One moment it is a bit quiet, the next it is extremely loud and sometimes there is a rhythm to it (nothing to do with my pulse). Prior to this I had (and still have) issues in my jaw and weird vision problems. I had them from a non properly healed extracted tooth 2 years ago. The problems got better after a biological dentist reopened the site and done some stuff there. But the tinnitus did not.

      Aside from the very loud tinnitus "waves", I can modulate it by widely opening my jaw and pressing head forward or backward. Do you think this might be somatic tinnitus? and could going to chiropractor help? or did the chlorine dioxide damage some structures inside the ear that I have this very rare type of tinnitus?

      It is driving crazy and making me suicidal (I started practicing partial suspension) since my life is also getting ruined by it (prob. going to loose my job (in Germany) and have to return to my home country Syria, where I probably have no future) and I can barely enjoy anything. Due to it fluctuating a lot, I find it difficult to habituate. I have been on Mirtazapine for about 1.5 months but it did not do much regarding "dealing" with tinnitus, it only made me panic a bit less about it and the potential ruining of my life.

      Noise Induced, Prednisone (drones), Barotrauma (distortions)
      Sounds a tad similar to me. Ringing high pitched waves (flutters in volume) or lower pitched (like someone bending metal or a seashell sound constantly)?

      And stop using that stuff, it is insanely toxic, though I would imagine it would react before it gets to your ears as it's basically bleach in gas form.

      Well, I have the high pitched waves, I am not sure how to describe the low pitched one.

      Have you tried anything medication-wise?

      Yeah, I have not taken any of the chlorine dioxide after this happened.
