Tinnitus is not a classic EDS symptom, but may be a bit more common in EDS than the general population. We may be farther along on the spectrum towards having 'fragile ears', and secondly our musculoskeletal issues may exacerbate/perpetuate tinnitus since somatosensory input does this.
I'd like to have a discussion about this if it affects others, and am up for PMing if someone does not want to make everything public. Tinnitus has been very loud for me since 2007, and while the last 3 years have been less detrimental due to habituation and medication, it remains a nut for me to try to crack. My EDS Dx this year raises the question again, if there is not more I can do to prevent the tinnitus.
( Some people are not aware what a serious problem ongoing and relentless tinnitus is for millions of people. Some people have their lives collapse because of it.)
