So I've had T & H since May 2015, so only a couple months. I heard it through both of my ears not just one. I feel like I know all about T & H bc my older brother has had both T & H since 2012, I believe. I think I got it from an ear infection while also having the cold. When I hear super loud noises it spikes up and once I go to sleep the next morning it calms down. I try not to complain too much bc there are so many ppl out there that have it much worse, trust me I know from experience. Anyways just wanted to say that you may think you have it bad but it might not be the case and you might just have it mild, just if it stays like that for the rest of my life with one or two permenant spikes, I'll be the happiest! I'm just terrified of the unknown. Even with this spike that hasn't gone down in a couple days takes a little getting used to but i'll cope. Honestly Idk what i'm talking about. Just hi.
