      I'm 15 with tinnitus. It came nearly 2 weeks ago out the blue, probably due to loud music and places. I will admit that I have abused my poor ears over the years. I got my taste of temporary tinnitus after sitting behind a speaker. Now I'm stuck with it permanently. Went the urgent care and they said my eardrum membrane is pink and I have fluid behind my eardrum. Gave me some penicillin and I'm taking antihistamines to clear up the fluid and here I am still with the ringing. I also caught a cold so that's making it even worse. I'm going to an ENT to see if my hearing is worse now. I have at least 75% of my hearing back now. Still sounds a bit clogged up now. I have hope that my ears are fine because I woke up to silence for 2 days straight for a few minutes. Any other similar stories?

      Agree with @Tim Hogan . I imagine your case is temporary and it will recede time. Don't ruin your ears like so many of us have here or it will be permanent. Use protection when you go to concerts or other loud places. Don't crank up your headphones. Take antibiotics sparingly.

      Yeah. I thought since I was young, I'd be temporary. But nope. This isn't going away. I've been listening to music since I was 8-9. I go to loud parades and festivities all the time. I have abused my ears to no repair. It's not a loud sound until something loud annoys it. I'll be wearing ear protection once my cold goes away.
