    What happened exactly? I posted a while back. Recently I had tinnitus after working out at the gym. I had it for about 12 days. All of a sudden in a matter of the last 2 days the ringing really got a lot better. It is still there but ever so slight. Chin up. Don't cry I know the feeling I was struggling with some major depression myself thinking it was permanent. If yours happened as a result of an injury but didn't directly hit ur ear or side of ur head, it might just be due to severe inflammation of the inner ear hair cells. If this is the case see a ENT specialist and ask to be put on a steroid treatment to treat the inflammation. Bottom line is the sooner u can treat it the better a chance u can have to fix the inside of ur ear that may have been super inflamed from the accident. Always look on the bright side , ur alive, u didn't have a heart attack or a stroke or cancer. So keep with it and keep positive and due what u can to treat it.

    I'm not a medically qualified person but it may be you have an infection so it's best to get yourself checked out by your doctor.  There are so many causes of Tinnitus that will need to be ruled out - diet (some foods e.g. chocolate) injury, vitamin deficiency, infection, noisy environment etc.

    I notice my Tinnitus tends to return in the run up to my next Vitamin B12 injection for Pernicious Anaemia.  I have it now as I type and am due a jab today.

    In the meantime try not to think about it and concentrate on other things like listening to the wireless, watching TV or reading a good book, even perhaps going for a walk.

    I wish you well

      This is a quote from a 91 page document entitled

      "Noise levels and noise exposure of workers in pubs and clubs -A review of the literature Prepared by the Health and Safety Laboratory for the Health and Safety Executive 2002 "

      "The criterion for noise induced hearing loss (NIHL) is generally accepted and is the basis of much of the occupational noise exposure regulations world-wide. NIHL can be developed in two ways depending on the level of exposure. Acoustic trauma can result from a peak sound pressure level of 140 dB or more. This is normally in the form of an impulse event and the hearing loss is a result of the mechanical damage. The damage caused by such an event is instantaneous and is usually accompanied by temporary tinnitus. Exposure to sound pressure levels between 90 and 140 dB may cause damage to the ear depending on the level and duration of exposure. This type of damage is cumulative and grows slowly over the years of noise exposure"
