      Hi all ,a simple question for a simple mind ie me:confused:

      If you have slight to moderate High Frequency Hearing loss does that AUTOMATICALLY mean that you will have Tinnitus to go with it?

      I cant really see a definitive answer on the web,what say anyone? In the Uk I believe Drs would say yes ,.but.mmmm

      Hi Pete,

      No, I have read that it does not follow that hearing loss = tinnitus. You can have the loss without the T (if you are lucky :().

      Most likely hearing loss
      Yes that is true. I know a few people with moderate to severe hearing loss and no tinnitus.

      I am in agreement on this, some have a loss and no T monster under their bed or in their closets. Lucky them! I am going to name mine, of course it will have to be a cool name, any suggestions?
