Hi everyone. I’ve been suffering with bad T for about 8 weeks now. After going to the doctor’s twice, they finally took me seriously and diagnosed an ear infection in my left ear and gave me some Otomize ear spray to treat it. I used it for about 10 days - initially it seemed to work but since I’ve stopped using it the T is worse than ever - I’ve been having the worst spikes of my life. Now I’ve been making myself paranoid reading that the spray I used is otoxic and that it can cause tinnitus itself. Just wondering if that is the case.
This spike has made me feel the most depressed I’ve ever felt - I’ve honestly been wondering how to get through each day at the moment. I’m going to my local tinnitus support group tomorrow which I hope will help but I really can’t see a way through at the moment. I keep telling myself it will get better but I’m so up and down. Does anyone with experience of T after infection have any words of wisdom? I’ve also been researching those in-ear maskers online but they’re so expensive and some people say they make their T worse. I just don’t know what to do. Thanks for any responses.
