I am reaching out. I am relativeley healthy, 29 years old about 5'9 215, but I have a decent frame. Reason why I say this is I had just gone back to the gym for the first time in several months, and pushed myself, but not overly so. At the end of the work out, I tried to wind down, stretch etc... As I went to the showers I was definitely a little light headed and I went down to pick something up and the Tinnitus started in my left ear. It is a high pitched frequency. I never really expose myself to loud noises which is very common with tinnitus. I went to an ENT and had the audio test. My hearing loss is slightly down in the high frequency sounds which makes sense because those sounds have to be heard across the constant high frequency ringing in that ear. I was put on the steroid taper down medication for 12 days, im midway through and no difference. Problem I am having is there is some mention (Little if any) about tinnitus with exercise, but mostly it is a secondary result of some exposure to loud noise or music etc.. I just want to see if anyone has had a similar experience, and if it has resolved itself by itself. Im really bumming about it, and trying not to think about it. But I am 29, I want to continue to exercise and get healthier and lead a normal lifestyle but I do not want to risk any further damage. I think it was blood pressure related where something on the lines of a blood vessel inside the ear that may have swelled or burst even though I dont remember feeling any pain or popping. From my little research it seems like the hair cells may have been damaged..the ENT I went to said there is no concrete proof or studies that say it can be related to blood pressure or exercise and says it could be a virus which would have happened eventually. My gutt and common sense though do not agree with this. If anyone has had any similar experience or has any advice It would be sincerely appreciated. Thank you very much in advance.
