I am recovering from a bout of pneumonia for which I was prescribed a 5-day course of Azithromycin. I am feeling much better, but I am bothered by tinnitus. I have googled this and has found that excessive use of antibiotics might have caused this problem. If that is the cause, will it go away on its own? Is there anything specific that I should do in order to help it go away?

I have a sensation similar to that which occurs while holding a seashell to one's ear. I can hear my own pulse making a "swooshing" sound and I feel like that I am living underwater. While having conversations, I feel that the other person is miles away. I feel disconnected from my auditory environment. I am planning to have a treatment for tinnitus from Oshawa. Any words of wisdom or advice (or reassurance) from others who have experienced this would be greatly appreciated.
