        I have 3 tiers of methods if i need sleep

        tier 3 - 5mg of melatonin plus a sleep tea
        tier 2 - In Australia we have an OTC sleep tablet called ''Restivit'' i take that if the above doesnt work
        Teir 1 - 7.5mg - 15mg of Mirtazapine, but im a lttle sluggish the next day but it does the trick

      Today, my good ear got clogged, felt 80% deaf for 30 minutes. What will I do if my good ear also goes off?... Feeling so deaf was horrible.

        Terrifying too, I was wondering if I really messed up by pressing my pinky in my good ear hole to alleviate a bit some itchiness I had. Literally just something anyone would do to relieve it... Ending up super blocked and wondering how bad my bad ear is to feel like I was hearing my body only.

        Could it be? For a full year? I thought it would last a month or so. But yeah, it feels like I have to "manually'" do it by laying that bad ear down, but it resets again when I get up. Frustrating as all hell.

        Mind you, is not a 100% fix, I am sure there might be damage that I cannot reverse even if I lay that bad ear down... But at the same time, I am not so sure. Again, it's stupidly frustrating to deal with it.

        Awfully sorry everybody that answered. I was on a trip abroad. Not super enjoyable with a side hearing, but well... I couldn't make my family sad if I didn't go so... At least I'm glad some people still haven't lost their gaming touch even with their disability. I haven't, since I need something to take the stress off.

      Hi @TindalosKeeper Just wanted to say hi and introduce myself. I also have single sided deafness (vaccine injury) and noticed you said you had that too. It sucks a lot but what can we do but try and live with it. For me, tinnitus is much worse than the deafness. Born with crappy ears I guess
      All the best, Juliane

        Good day to you! Apologies if I don't go around introducing myself. I guess I try not to be a nuisance (You are not, obviously, it's just a dumb feeling of mine). My case is not as severe, but it only takes some damage to unbalance it all... Eventually, I believe it will get worst for me, so I try to enjoy life as much as possible until it happens.
        Best wishes as well :)

        It's hard to say. Some people with hearing loss don't necessarily have Tinnitus, as evidence solving Tinnitus might not solve Hearing Loss. Still, solving Tinnitus is a first step for the rest of us with a more severe condition. First, we have to get there, though.

      Was wondering if your Tinnitus can be so loud it deafens some frequencies... Or maybe it's the background music that deafens me?... Hmm...

      Seems like my PC is fully functional now, after 3 days of testing! I guess it's time for a new surge protector and call it a day!

        Yeah it often fades away (altogether or to nothing) for a lot of people in the first year (sometimes beyond that).

        You've got a good chance.

      This may sound harsh, but a cure for HL or T would be made much faster if both were epidemic.
