      Given that your hearing loss is pretty consistent across all frequencies, where do you hear your T (i.e. what frequency is it)? Before my surgery, my low frequency hearing was a bit worse than it is now (in my audiogram), but high frequency hearing was much better. So I had some mid range T that could be easily masked. But now its higher pitched and impossible to mask.

      This is my audiogram... I have T and bad H (ear pain/headache/fullness of the ears) I can't work and that's really a problem... I'd like to try LLLT to improve my high frequencies. Limit Hearing loss permits to decrease the pain... ?

      I've just received the results from my recent tests. I will add that the audiogram was not done in a soundproof booth.

      Any input from the members here would be welcomed and appreciated.

      Everyone on here will have an audiogram lying about the house somewhere surely.

      Here's mine. It is a bit unusual I think. If anyone has any ideas, please comment.

      Right ear looks like noise induced loss. Quite a big dip there, do you still here okay?

      First one is one of my 1-8kHz audiograms
      • The 6kHz dip in right ear is not present in other audiograms
      • The 2kHz bone conduction dip in the left ear is present on all audiograms (note how it goes from 0dB at 1kHz to 20dB at 2kHz to 0dB at 3kHz. Is this an early Carhart's Notch?)

      Second one is up to 16kHz only
      • Note how my ultra-high frequency hearing is better than my high-frequency hearing. What's up with that?
      One more thing: I don't have any "muffling" of sound. If I change the balance of headphones to increase the volume by 5% on the left earphone, I hear 100% normally - minus the tinnitus of course. I just have flat volume loss - like not enough sound is reaching the ear.

      I have dips of 30db at 4khz in my right ear with tinnitus which is a constant tone that sounds like a buzz/hum. Left ear is fine and no T, it is hard to surprising to see from your audiogram that you suffer so much, something neurological perahps?

      For people capturing the pictures with their cell phones, use the app "CamScanner" (https://www.camscanner.com/user/download). It will automatically turn your image into a crisp document that looks almost as good as a direct scan. This will make it easier to analyze the information.

      You seem smart and relatively interested in my case, so I'll upload other tests I've had for you to look at.

      I had an OAE (Otoacoustic Emissions test) that measures the responsiveness of my hair cells to common sounds somewhere, but I don't know where it is. It came back normal.

      The first paper is another audiogram. Ignore the 12kHz dip, he didn't actually test that frequency.

      The next two are ABRs (Auditory Brainstem Response tests) which measure the my brain's response time and response strength to sounds entering my ear. Both ears respond in the same amount of time to sound stimuli.

      Also, because you have NIHL in one ear only, does that ear feel full/tingly/"weird?" Does it have any physical sensations that are bothersome, or do you just hear less out of it?

      @Sam Bridge Thanks for commenting. I can say that I hear weirdly and have two kinds of tinnitus, a low rumble overlaid by a whine. The ear with the NIHL does in fact feel tingly and full. I can hear speech pretty well but this week went to see an audiologist specialising in tinnitus. As well as the NIHL in my left ear I have reverse slope hearing loss in each ear and the audiologist thinks that by trying to improve the NIHL I may not notice the rumbling tinnitus as much. The low frequency loss is probably due to cochlear hydrops but the NIHL I got from playing an accordion. I am hopeful that the hearing aids will help. I've been like this for nearly four years and am used to it, but I am looking forward to trying the hearing aids.

      Hi Vaba

      Definitely has a full sensation but thats it, no pain luckily. The fullness doesn't bother me, just that damn bzzzzzzzzzinnng. I will check your other tests tomorrow.

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Very high frequency hearing loss in left ear.
      I am embedding the normal frequency and the high frequency scans. The audiogram to 8KHz is very normal. The high frequency scan has asymmetry in the left ear of about 25db, and probably is where my T lives (and I die). The black line is the high frequency average for my age group.
      In a couple of weeks I am going to refresh the audiogram, my guess is that the left ear high frequencies will show up a little bit worse according to my own app based measurements. Still I do not really know what caused the shift only in one ear. Indeed, I do not have any high frequency scan prior to T onset and perhaps the asymmetry was already there. MRI and CT scans did not reveal anything. Any suggestions are welcome.

      Your audiogram to 8KHz looks perfect. Did you get it to 16KHz also?

      I don't think audiograms are going to tell you anything beneficial for tinnitus patterns, although it doesn't hurt anything. ABR's would be interesting to compare.

      Good response guys :).

      Perhaps if the any of our page Admins wanted to collect the data properly it could be useful.

      I agree @Alue , ABR's would be more useful.

      Here is mine as of 9/23. Note that the 15 db drop in the right ear at 250 hz developed from 5 db only the previous week. And the 6,8 khz had a 10 db drop, respectfully, in the same week. Left ear has had fluctuations up to 10 db or more over the past few months, but has remained relatively the same since last year.

      my tinnitus is on my LEFT ear.
      doctor thinks i might have endolymphatic hydrops
      but i dont have this symptoms.
      this is my audiogram at 7 months, my tinnitus is better than ever.
      pretty calmed and barely there.

      long history of music, live shows, bars etc
      thought i had hidden hearing loss.
      but who knows?
      hearing pretty good.
      just a little struggle in loud places like restaurants and conversations.

      I feel like it's not totally accurate in the dip points at 3/6/8khz. My tinnitus masked quite a bit of the sounds. I had to really try hard to ignore it.

      OAE test showed normal except for a dip between 5-6khz for whatever reason.

      Gonna get a second set of tests done when I get into an ENT in 3 months again. Just to check again.

      Hi all

      Been told my hearing was good, this was my 3rd audiometry, it wasn't carried out in a sound proof room, however hopefully fairly accurate. Question, is my hearing as good as they say? No high frequency hearing loss and T idiopathic?

      Thanks a lot! Been meaning to ask for a while.

      Here are my results. I have noticed the onset of tinnitus in my left ear the last couple of weeks, with it going into the right on occasion. Have been on doxycycline the last 5 weeks for a sinus infection so not sure if it is related, but my GP said that doxy is not ototoxic. The Audiologist doesn't believe that loud music has caused this ringing either, so i am a bit confused. My GP has been sent the results and i only have 2 days left of doxy. i have the exact same test in 2 weeks time to see if it improves once the doxy is out of my system.


      Give me your thoughts!

      Thanks @gotyoubynuts, am 41 do you think I have what people on this forum refer to as high frequency hearing loss? Didn't know if hearing aid would correct that? Wasn't mentioned to me...

      @Candy you may have high freq hearing loss. Some highstreet places test up to 20khz if you want to find out. You have very good hearing up to 8khz. A hearing aid would only benefit this range so would be no good to you.

      Ah, ok thanks...might look into that, thanks. Do you have high frequency hearing loss? Is yours ok too up to 8khz?
