Just here to offer some advice to those of you who are wondering what to stay away from. Here are a few things.
1. Headphones - Not only will headphones further damage your hearing but they place you at a higher risk for an acoustic neuroma.
2. Electromagnetic fields - These effect some tinnitus sufferers such as myself. These field come from electronic items such as computers phones etc.
3. Any sounds above 85db - Sounds above this level begin to cause damage after time exposure. After 8 hours of exposure to 85db permanent damage begins and for each 5db increase you have the time you can be exposed for.
4. Cannabis - While some people find that cannabis use helps them cannabis increases your sense's and makes tinnitus louder.
I hope these few tips may have helped you. If you have any questions feel free to ask me
