I am new and I am suffering . I have had T for 2 1/2 years I think it all started when I had a cold and ear infection. Today I'm having a horrible day I am usually a happy energetic person but all I can hear is the hissing today . I have been to the ENT and I've had all the tests I have lost hearing in my left ear. I am also going to a dentist to see if it could be TMJ . I am trying so hard to find answers I can't imagine living the rest of my life with this . I am thinking of trying a hearing aid do you know if this might help ? I am 43 years old I am a teacher and I have two kids. I teach phys ed and always wonder if the noise in the gym could be making things worse ?
