        My new health insurance doesn't start until next month, but it will be about the same cost as the inhaler anyway.

        I got tested when I only had my on/off low hum, got other possible causes, but a week later my bilateral T started. It may have started earlier, but I could have been preoccupied with the low hum. I had never had high ringing before. Also, nothing of diagnostic value was shared with me about the ART. I wish I had never done it.

        @Kriszti We are in the same boat then. My tinnitus was bad, but not too bad before the test. Wish I had never went. The test was all for nothing as well. I didn't know the results will show the decibel level. I may try and call for a copy of the results, though I'm not sure I could control my anger with them.

        @aura my ears have been taking turns clogging up too. Maybe it is the weather or allergies or something. I also need to try replacing all of my down bedding with synthetic.

      How many decibels is an acoustic emissions test?

        Less than the AR test but still quite a bit of clicking.
        I personally had no issues with it, maybe a tiny spike.
        Avoid AR like the plagues of egypt.

        I refused the acoustic reflex, but I don't know why I went ahead with the acoustic emissions test. T has been spiked all day ever since. Didn't really seem loud at the time, but wasn't exactly soft.

        I haven’t been able to pop one of my ears for a year or so now. It’s so irritating. The left one pops fine. And you’re right, it feels great when it does.

      Anyone here still record and mix music? Is there any possible way to record without using headphones? Using dynamic mics maybe?
      1. Foamearplugssuck

        I definitely recommend a cardiod mic. I have an AT2020 which is pretty solid. I do get some bleed but its pretty easy to just filter out. but the "narrower" the mic the better.

        It might be your Eustachian Tube playing up? Maybe if the air pressure in your ear is not perfect, the eardrum suddenly becomes a wobbly drum.

        I don't know what's making it worse. I had it before I started the prednisone. Was it there before the Venice Beach incident? I can't remember, maybe, but not as loud. Could it be the Nortriptyline I started the night before Venice Beach? Hell if I know....
