Like many I searched up on the site, I have it my left ear. However, my hearing is damaged over the years from noisy work and loud firearms and lack of PPE use. Since August this year, stress has been present. Smoked a boatload of medium to heavy cigars, fell into Kool longs for about 13 packs and bought a vape. It's kind of known pg can exasterbate ringing, so can nic I'm told. I'm addition, in November I got a bad case of bronchitis and sinusitis at the same time. Both can affect the tubes in the ears. The meds the Dr gave me can also cause ringing. At least for a couple months now I'm smoke free again. Mostly waiting to see if the ringing calms down. Definitely quiets overnight, and picks up on vaping in the morn and then all day. Using 70-30 saltnic 50, but a 100 short puffs or less daily. I'm trying some white noise apps to my Bluetooth headphones as a relief. It's not terrible yet, but annoying. Going to cut the nic power with mixes and look at higher vg I guess. I'm told tinitus is a symptom of other ear problems and doesn't cause deafness. Dave We shall see I guess.
