Seriously, you should go and see a doctor.
I did, he told me to just 'ignore it'
My hearing is still perfect according to him, but he didn't really seem to understand that was the problem. Apparently there's people making profit out of selling people useless supplements too. I mean, there's people who are saying it works, but there's also a lot of people who say it hasn't done anything for them... I've read a bit about the subject and the general vibe seems to be that the medical world hasn't really found a proper solution yet and generally people try and try for years to find a solution without much effect.
I've been having tinnitus for about 3-4 years now, I'm wearing earplugs when I'm going to concerts since I got it and trying to be mindful of high volumes , but it hasn't decreased.
One rather nasty side effect is that when I'm rummaging through a box of bricks, I can feel the sound of the bricks pushing against my eardrum almost like a drill.
What I found is some simple exercises you can do that help temporarily (yesterday it was completely gone for about 10-15 minutes after I did them), and also that I should stay away from caffeine (darn that's a shame), salt, exercise more (to reduce blood pressure or something, I think this could make sense as the tinnitus gets louder when I'm stressed out), get vitamin B and magnesium. I'm not sure if any of this will really help, but I'm willing to try anyway.
