I hope everyone is able to have hope and stay positive. I'll return with positive updates. Peace out.
Taking a break from this forum. Feeling too much negativity at the moment.
@Kriszti well I'm choosing to be hopeful because its all I have right now. Please let me be hopeful. I think I'm seeing a really good doctor who...
@Shelbylynn not quite, PNW:)
I hope @Steph1710 is having a good day today
Hey Maya--we hear you, literally. T totally sucks. First things first--it gets better. Check out the success stories page, and check out some of...
The last doctor experience I had a couple of days ago was such a bummer. I didn't even get the doctor I wanted, and when I started talking about...
@Steph1710 where do you swim? I am jealous! Also, what's the protocol for ears and swimming? Are plugs needed?
I'm grateful for any rain we can get, the wildfire smoke was so brutal last year...hoping some rain will prevent that.
You're like most people who buy records but can't listen because they don't have a turn table. When the stereo gets fixed, the record will be there.
So glad for you!
I just met the most disappointing doctor... I'm going into private Healthcare.
Oh bother...glad I graduated a few years ago...I wouldn't do too well at a ceremony nowadays, especially a Texas style one!
However, it doesn't piss me off like it did. Truly.
You look like a Disney princess!
That is very weird, sorry you went through that. Did it end?
8 months in and my tinnitus has not faded into a hiss like many report. It is still a strong, clear tone that reacts to sound. 1.7khz.
Ugh that is so terrible, so sorry to hear that! I was recently walking with my bf and a loud car approached, as I plugged my ears it revved extra...
I don't think my particular case has a cause and effect, but last summer, a couple months before the onset of my tinnitus, I was having chronic...
Yeah, it happens.
Watching ghost busters with my amazing boyfriend. Great evening.
@Shelbylynn I'm young too, only 20, and i cannot believe the things people do to their ears. I see 6 year olds existing with air pods in their...
From what I have seen, the fact it has changed from a ringing to a hiss is a very good sign that it could fade completely, given time.
Lol, this is cute. Reminds me of a show I used to watch about this bunny... Muffy I think? Miffy? Some cute little bunny.
Yay! I hope your tolerance to sound remains and continues to improve, and look at you, supermom, for being so ready to jump into it all. Inspiring!
@Martinf i completely agree. I've literally accidentally looked at the sun before and my eyes are fine, not that I recommend it, but compared to...
Well, I'm not too sure.
I often go by Jessie, and one day (before tinnitus, I believe? Although what is time anymore...) I was trying to think of...
Imagine if hearing protection was as normalized as sun glasses. LOL
Our remarkable resilience to calamity.
Note to self: tuesdays are not the day to stay home. Maintenance is here. Very very loud. Oh bother.
Unlike your sellotape tragus comment, this has me laughing out loud.
A variation of my name, Jessica.
It wasn't intense running or anything, just some Frisbee with my boyfriend in the park. Head didn't hurt weirdly, just clicked.
Yesterday I ran for the first time since straining my ankle last October and my head clicks! It's bizarre, many clicks with every step!
I thought it was a lizard for a while.
Thank you for your sincere and helpful response, I really appreciate your thoughts.
Oddly, I do not get the same effect from ear plugs or head...
...I think it's different.
My tinnitus ear is much worse on a pillow, and when I first plug my ear it is louder.
The thing is, when I start...
My case isn't like yours, my tinnitus is at about 1.7 kHz, so not as high pitched. All I can say is I'm also in a tough spot and looking for...
I'm having a tough go of it this morning. It just feels loud right now and I'm remembering when I first got it--it definitely seems louder now...
Honestly, I don't think my T volume has gone down. When I first got it I only heard it at night. It was much fainter than now I think.
Just saw this on a thread and it caught my eye: "if there is life, there is hope." I like that.
@twa interesting...are the different sounds in different ears, or the same?
Does my tinnitus count as somatic if I can make it completely silent by plugging my tragus with some pressure? It's like there is an off button...
I definitely didn't quit coffee for tinnitus, I quit it because I experience extreme physical symptoms from it (racing heart, anxiety, etc). I'm...
Let the joy of today consume you. Tomorrow will always come either way.
I just had a thought....tinnitus friendly concerts...100% acoustic, gentle music, everyone there has been trained on safe dB, its outdoors, etc....
I think my T may be slightly reactive as it seems to become very stable and modulates less if I am laying still in silence
I wish it weren't a pure tone.
Maybe I should just go into audiology, since this is all I seem to think about nowadays anyway.
When my T mixes with background noise especially outside, it sounds like a whistling wind.
Last time I was at the dentist and I told him my teeth were not lining up correctly, he offered to grind them down.
Stay hopeful. I am hopeful that because my tinnitus is so bizarre, there must be a treatment.
Think about medical advancements. Think about the...
Thanks for the concern @Stacken77 I haven't been plugging for protection, I've just been over monitoring my sound
2020 for me was pandemic, isolation, aliens are real, ears are not real, severe ankle sprain. Thank u
Ugh. I'm doing the thing where I obsess over it and plug my ears all the time. Yuck.
@Martinf see, that is just bizarre to me.
I think doctors are severely undertrained in many aspects.
I agree that it could be issues with...
They do but they sure as hell aren't on this forum! 8 months in here. You'll have more good days!
