I have tinnitus in my left ear, sometimes it's loud and sometimes I don't notice it. I'm not sure yet what is causing it, it may be caffeine as I drink alot of Coke but I've tried to slow down to check if that's the cause. If that's not the case, anxiety may be the cause. I don't believe it's ear damage because I tend to not listen to music etc as loud as other people my age, and they haven't gotten tinnitus yet.
I've had it since november 2011.
