I am 19 and have tinnitus since June 2017. At that point in my life, I was just over an extended stressful period (which my body did not respond to well as stress manifested in a few ways through my body), and my boyfriend went on vacation for a month which also stressed me out because I always worry about safety. I have an anxiety disorder, and OCD as well. At this point, I was also on my third acne medication (first was doxycycline, next minocycline, and lastly accutane). It was when I started taking accutane that a slight ringing in my right ear began. I went to the doctor twice, no underlying cause found at the time. It was really only noticeable during very quiet times and maybe when I was trying to go to sleep. Well, as of very recently it has changed into a static buzzing/humming in both ears, primarily the left. Maybe a tad louder, but still manageable. I have started taking zinc tablets because I have read that it can help.
Here are my questions:
Is it possible for tinnitus to clear up ever?
In my case, would you think that stress caused the onset?
Are there any treatments that you would suggest?
Thank you so much
