Ringing in my ears….
That damn noise!
Welcome to Tinnitus
I imagine you’re visiting here because you or someone you care about suffers from tinnitus. You’re not alone. Unfortunately, tinnitus afflicts somewhere between 10% – 20% of adults. The chance of developing tinnitus increases as we age.
The symptom is a sound that no one else can hear. The character of the some varies from person to person. The most common description is that it’s a ringing sound, but others describe it as a buzzing or humming or swooshing or hissing or crackling or wind-blowing or static or…
There are many variations on the noise.
The severity can range from mild annoyance to absolutely maddening. It can seem to come and go or it can be constant.
My own tinnitus story began a little over 2 years ago. I’m in my 60’s and was sitting out in my back yard on a very quiet night, just enjoying the evening. It was very quiet, but I thought I was hearing crickets. However, it wasn’t like crickets I had heard before. The sound seemed higher pitched. It had a higher frequency or something. It was the same in both ears and seemed to be coming from somewhere behind me.
It didn’t stop and it didn’t change as I moved my head.
At first it wasn’t bad and I only seemed to notice it when it was very quiet. But in very short order it became louder and more frequent and more annoying.
That’s when I began my search for information and help. It was a long process. I had a lot of different advice from different people. Eventually, I did get better. Not completely better, but enough that the ringing in my ears is something I can live with. Sometimes I don’t even notice it, especially when I’m engaged in doing something.
But when it gets quiet, it’s always there. Not as loud as it was at one point, but still there. Like a lot of things, I never realized how sweet pure silence was until I could no longer experience it. And I am glad I can hear.
Anyway, I decided to put this site together to make it easier for other who develop this problem to research it and get information and decide what they want to do. Don’t rely on anything you read here as medical advice, but I do hope you find the information helpful. And I hope your tinnitus goes away completely.
