Hi everyone, I´m a 32 years old guy from Spain. Looking on the Internet I´ve found this forum months ago and I decided to read some of the threads before writing. English isn´t a strong language for me when I want to explain ideas (it´s easy to realize this, no?....hahahaha, I apologize for my poor English expresive skills!) but I think that this forum is the best place for T sufferers that I´ve discovered on the Net. I suffer from T caused by acoustic trauma since a year (I used to hear loud music for hours meanwhile I was training indoor cycling); first times were a nightmare and nowadays I bear it as best as I can. My T is quite strange: I have I in the right ear that consist in a permanent nor very loud sound like the TV static noise or white noise but sometimes I also hear a intermittent noise close to the Doppler noise, like car engines that are getting closer to me. I was completely ignorant about this condition however when I was trapped by T I discovered that most of my musical heroes have also T. I try to carry a normal life: I have to confess that I miss the silence, mainly when I go to bed but I fall asleep quickly and also in the mornings because T mixes when the sounds of nature near to my house (the see, birds, the wind…). I try to read, to do exercise and all the kind of things I did before T. I have nor hearing loss neither hyperacusis, so I feel fortunate at that point. Months ago, when T started I was taking benzos for 5 month because I suffered a huge anxiety but one day I decided to change my mood to a more positive one. I´m a little obsessive person, but I can control that. Doctors here have a very poor idea about this condition and some of them didn´t talk clearly, so they confused my mind, but reading the information you post here is helping me a lot, thanks!... and nowadays I´m sure a cure will be possible in the near future. I feel full of hope. Today I find out that a member has travelled to Bangkok to be treated… a brave person, no doubt. Scientific knowledge changes and become more subtle and deep every day. If someone want to talk to me about whatever I´ll be pleasured. Thank you all in this forum again!.
