      Hi everybody!

      In this special compilation episode, you’ll hear from four people with tinnitus, as well as a researcher and an audiologist, about tinnitus experiences during the Coronavirus crisis. How has the stress of the crisis impacted people’s tinnitus? Can the Coronavirus cause tinnitus to aggravate? What kind of support is available for people struggling during this time?

      Tinnitus Talk contributors are: @Liz Windsor, @Jack Straw, @Steve and @Ed209. Ed actually was infected by the Coronavirus and speaks about how his tinnitus was affected. Our expert contributors are Dr. Raj Shekhawat (UCL) and audiologist Alan Hopkirk. Thanks to everyone who contributed!

      It’s the first time we tried out this new format – interviewing 6 different people and then tying it all together. It was a lot of work and a good learning experience.

      Listen on:

      I just want to add that we had a number of members coming forward to take part in this interview and we weren't able to follow up with everyone. I specifically want to thank @MadsWithT for his time spent recording with us. That recording in the end didn't fit within the episode so well. But he did have lots of interesting things to say about his Lenire experience, so I'm thinking maybe we should create a Lenire User Experience episode and interview Mads for that! :)

      Who’s that loser at the start? :LOL:

      You can hear me breathing like a serial killer on a phone call :ROFL:. I can tell my breathing was affected.

      I enjoyed hearing about other people’s experiences and it was cool to note that the Terminator, aka Steve, doesn’t stop training for no one. The gym comes to him instead :D

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Meniere's Disease
      I'm on 12 weeks total isolation by NHS and Government due to the coronavirus as a severe asthmatic. This could be until a vaccine or medication is found as it would kill me off if got the virus.

      Can't leave the house. I can only go out to my outdoor area.

      Stay home, save lives and stay safe.

      love Glynis
