I stupidly burst my eardrum with some force last year with the end of my sunglasses.
Was told at the time there didnt seem to be any damage to the inner ear but I then got an infection which started weeping and took anti biotics to clear.
My eardrum has completely healed over since but at the time the whole was closing up, my tinnitus started (i think it started then) and became deafening.
Its slightly quiter since then but constant and I want rid of it.
My CT and MRI scan show no damage to bones however two experianced ENT's think there is damage to the ear bone behind the drum, from close investigation. Apparently it doesnt always show in a scan. An audio report shows there is loss to the inner ear hearing aswell.
My tinnitus can vary on excercise I undertake and drink such as caffeine.
My question is for anyone with experiance - does it sound like my tinnitus is caused by damage to the inner ear or the bone?
