I realized I had tinnitus when there was complete silence in my house. Before tinnitus I used to listen music with my jbl earbuds and steelseries soundcard for 3 to 5hrs and movie at high Vol. I visited my ENT specialist few days ago he told I have minor tinnitus and reduce the use of headphones 1/2 the time I used to i.e 7hrs to 3.5hrs and told me to eat GINKOCER tablet (Ginkgo biloba tablets) 2times a day for 15 days. Told me that my audiology test was normal nothing to worry about: I asked him about my Ear Pain during swimming when I go deep inside water he told me to wear ear plugs. I am going for swimming from past 5 months usually never used ear plugs during swimming but I used them today for sometime my ears did not pain but I kept hearing tinnitus sound that I only hear during silence. Listening to loud music and going to swimming without wearing ear plugs are the cause to my tinnitus?? If I continue my swimming classes wearing ear plug (because of which I hear tinnitus ringing) or not wearing them and listening to music for few hrs at low vol worsen my tinnitus?? Any help/tips to keep my minor tinnitus in low level would be highly appreciated. Thank You.
