      Ear infection
      I'm not even sure if maybe I'm getting used to it or it's getting better and even gone sometimes. I have had it for 3.5 weeks from an ear infection and the infection is now gone. If I go to the quietest area of my house I THINK maybe I hear something but now I'm wondering if that was always there? I feel so crazy lol. Last night was the first night I didn't sleep with the masking rain music in an ear bud in that ear. I woke up 1x with the ringing but couldn't really hear THAT much in the morning. How do you know when it's gone??

      Hi Marie if you have to ask yourself "How do you know when it's gone??"
      Then I really wouldn't worry about it ...Some of us are not that fortunate that we can even ask that question.
      Glad your better

      That is great news, Marie! It sounds like your tinnitus is almost gone. You are very fortunate that you can barely hear it, and I hope that continues for you!!

      I live in Los Angeles too. LA can be a noisy place, make sure to protect your ears from now on, the fact that you got tinnitus means your ears are succeptible to tinnitus in the future if you damage them. Stay away from loud noises, live the happiest life you possibly can, be more open to people with disabilities, and help bring more awareness for a cure. You are extremely blessed.

      You'll know it's gone when you suddenly realize you haven't visited this site in months. ;)
