I've had tinnitus in one ear for a couple of years now. The first doctor I spoke to when I first noticed it . was kind of dismissive. At the time it was relatively easy to ignore. However, since the beginning of this year it's gotten louder, just as if someone's turned up the volume. I spoke to a different doctor who referred me to the ENT dept . They sent me for an MRI scan and just recently I had a letter back stating nothing's wrong (no tumor or nerve damage or whatever) and that I don't need any follow up appointments. Good news, of course, but I'm thinking: what now? I still have this problem which hasn't stopped since I first noticed it. I've been reading some of the modules on the take-on-tinnitus website which has made it less daunting. I would welcome any help or advice.
