Why? Because some people take their hearing for granted, I really get irked when I see someone with "good ears" destroying them at clubs or concerts. I really wish I had a new pair! I'd treat them like a winning lottery ticket.

I think that the causes of T are like the causes of cancer, it can be a combination of many things: genetic predisposition, exposure to carcinogenic substances, stress, general poor health which affects the immunity system, etc.

What was it? How long did it last? What were the first symptoms?
For me, it was standing close to the stage for about 10 minutes, at a gig.

I was 70 years old at the time. Now, I have had the T several times before because of ear wax. Each time I went to the doctors office to have my ears cleaned out. Each time the T went away. I was not too concerned because I thought once I had them cleaned out then the T would go away. When it didn't that is when I got panicky.
I am now 71. I retired at age 69 and felt like a 30 yo - in great health and no meds. My life was turned upside down. Retirement plans on hold. Now on an antidepressant and other meds for high blood pressure since it shot up because of the anxiety. Doing Neuromonics at the U of Iowa Tinnitus Clinic hoping that I can get my head on straight to resume the rest of my life "normally".
After retirement, I took up target shooting firing large caliber handguns, ie, 45s and .357 magnum. I wore ear protection but even so I think that was the last straw for my ears. Over the years I frequented clubs and other venues where loud music blasted away. Never gave it any thought but now I am convinced that my T was caused by cumulative noise trauma culminating with firearm discharges.
My audiogram indicates hearing is normal with moderate hearing loss in the upper frequencies. The sounds I hear are swishing changing to a high frequency eeeeeeeeee and sometimes crickets.
Really BS. Hope I can get on top of this.
