Will tinnitus go away on its own?

Answer: 

If your tinnitus is due to short-term noise damage – for example, after going to a loud music concert – it might go away after a few days.

If it’s lasted for weeks or months, there is a strong possibility that your tinnitus may be long-term. Over time it’s likely you will get used to it.

Accepting that your tinnitus might be long-term can be an important first step in coming to terms with it
