The Lounge>What's your level of Tinnitus
Hog's Gone Fishin 04:44 PM 08-09-2019
I've had Tinnitus for years. Being around squealing Hogs and lots of firearms. Going into a sow barn with 700 sows screaming for food at the same time is the equivalent of being right in a jet engine.

But whats weird is that I'd say on a scale of 1-10 my tinnitus level was always around a 4-5.

Since I sold my farm I have no issues with loud noise but about 3 months afterwards my tinnitus jumped straight to a level 10.

I don't understand why and there's no fix. It could surely drive a weak person insane but that's not me. When I lay down at night it's horrible !!!! and i can't sleep with a radio on to mask the noise so it really sux!

And yeah I've watched all the youtube doctors that show you to beat on your head in various spots and it don't solve the problem.

There's got to be an answer. Why can the medical community figure this shit out!!!!!

Thoughts?

At night tying to sleep is the worst but very low music or even a fan running seems to help.
Heh, me also I hardly notice it and now it is very noticeable. I gave it a 3 though because I can tune it out so to speak.

Iíve had mine (high pitched ring) for years, but it definitely ramped up just over a year ago.

Misery loves company. Wish I could solve it for all of us.

4 years of Field Artillery when I was in my 20's has my ears ringing now that I am in my 50's. I have some hearing loss as well as the ringing. I can still hear some tones with no problem but others just aren't there anymore. Looks like I will be able to get around 20% VA disability which is only about a hundred bucks but I will take it. Just waiting for it to clear at the VA but my advisor says artillery vets usually get that. Plus when I am ready to accept my aging I can get free hearing aids.

I've got that too, but it's in the background. The crickets and cicadas are front and center.

Mine is about a 3 at the moment. Low enough that I didn't notice it until this thread. It's been down lately compared to the last few years. I've lost some hearing ability in the last two years, so maybe I just don't heat it as well.

I genuinely feel you here, Hog

Had TERRIBLE tinnitus as a boy and young teen, the never ending ringing in my ears would drive me absolutely insane

Ma took me to the doc a couple times and it was basically ďthereís nothing we can do, heíll probably outgrow itĒ... I havenít looked into it for a long time, but back then science pretty much didnít have a freaking clue about what to do

It sounds like nothing has changed in that regard

Iíd be looking into anything if I were you, everything from homeopathic stuff like earwax candles to simple cotton balls stuffed in your ears, to finally... a good drug that zonks you out enough to sleep

I had a bad case back in January probably a 9 to 10. The only thing I've found that works is to mix olive and garlic in a little dropper bottle. Drop 1 or 2 in each ear every night before bed and eventually the ringing goes away.
