    Well it's not really a choice is it? My T is quite similar actually.

    It's actually "nothing smaller than your elbow" :p

  3. GregCA replied to the thread How Does One Cope w/out Support from Their Spouse or Loved Ones? Struggling Badly.

    As others have mentioned, it's really hard to understand it unless you actually "live it". Have him watch this. Tell him there's no way to escape,...

  4. GregCA rated Alue's post Agree in the thread Tinnitus After Cochlear Implant.

    I agree. It sounds a lot better than the other videos. She seems well adjusted to it too. Everyone is different, though. I suspect the age at...

  5. GregCA replied to the thread Tinnitus After Cochlear Implant.

    Very cool! I recognize the video from one of the suggested videos that came in my feed. I guess there are people with one good ear and one...

  6. GregCA replied to the thread Alternating Low-Frequency Tones in My Left Ear — Is This Tinnitus?.

    Yes it's (very mild) tinnitus. If your diet is high in sodium you may want to keep it in check. Also do a hearing test and get checked by an ENT.

  7. GregCA replied to the thread Tinnitus After Cochlear Implant.

    Agreed. The video just "makes a point" about the difference between CI hearing and natural hearing, but isn't necessarily accurate in terms of...

  8. GregCA replied to the thread Tinnitus After Cochlear Implant.

    Absolutely. It is an avenue that I'm excited about. We are already very good at signal processing, in terms of generating signals covering the...

    The ear drum isn't opaque.

  10. GregCA replied to the thread I Read About People Who Cope with Tinnitus When I'm Down...??.

    You can have T without hearing loss and vice versa. You can also have mild, moderate, severe, excruciating T. You can also have mild, moderate,...

  11. GregCA replied to the thread I Think This Is the End.

    He's talking about the sound reflecting off the car's "outer frame" and bouncing back towards him.

  12. GregCA replied to the thread Teacher Troubles.

    Good luck! A stapedotomy has a good chance of getting rid of T for good, especially if you don't have any cochlear involvement and your...

  13. GregCA replied to the thread Tinnitus After Cochlear Implant.

    I don't think of improvements from a CI as "my current natural hearing, amplified" or "hearing better". It's a different kind of hearing: you have...

  14. GregCA replied to the thread Tinnitus Newbie from an Ear Infection.

    There is a good chance that your tinnitus will go away once the infection clears out.

  15. GregCA replied to the thread I'm Hoping I Don't Have This.

    Q-tips are not a good idea to clean your ears: they can compact the wax to your eardrum, and in some cases even damage your ear drum.

  16. GregCA rated Keef's post Agree in the thread Hearing Aids.

    Thought I would join in this as I wear hearing aids supplied by my nhs audiologist. I first had tinnitus in 2011 and was referred by my gp to the...

  17. GregCA replied to the thread How to Prevent Tinnitus at Concert?.

    Your tinnitus is recent (1/17) and it's music induced (which I interpret as "loud music"). It's currently low and you are feeling lucky. All these...

  18. GregCA replied to the thread Moments without Tinnitus.

    Nope. Mine doesn't let go for a single second.

  19. GregCA replied to the thread Another Musician with Tinnitus.

    I (drummer) keep going. I'm quite careful about the volume on my headphones, even if, ironically, my T isn't noise induced. I tend to not focus so...

  20. GregCA replied to the thread Age-Related Hearing Loss — What Can I Expect?.

    Yes, it can, but it's not a certainty. It could remain as it is, or even soften. If anyone knew, they'd be millionaires. Well, possibly...

  21. GregCA replied to the thread Poll: Would You Find It Useful to Track the Intensity of Tinnitus?.

    I think it's useful if you are actively trying to treat your T. You can't assess the efficacy of your trial treatment if you can't measure it....
