      Was curious to see if anybody is working in the medical field as a nurse or something similar? Does T affect your job? I'm in my last semester of respiratorytherapy school, my T started Jan 5th 2015 just before I was to start my last semester. Last rounds of clinicals start soon, was looking for some input from people in the field.

      34 years in a hospital. Most of the noises of equipment and the constant low level sounds probably masked my T a lot. Two things stand out - Fire alarms and stethoscopes. I remember having elevated T and H sometimes using stethoscopes. It wasn't the sound in my ear, it was the pressure I think. For the same reason some folks here say earplugs actually work against them. Air pressure probably.
