      I had Chinese food tonight and put two packets of soy sauce in it and now I have this high-pitched sound in my right ear rather than the hissing/shhh-ing. I am thinking that either the soy sauce or the MSG (probably the latter now that I think about it) has intensified and altered the sound I am now hearing. Has anyone else found this to be the case. I suppose it may be difficult to pin-point each and every ingredient which we consume with our food unless we try it. Then again, I have had this food and additive in the past with no negative results but now it appears I am having these or might it be from something else? I find the T malady so strange and mysterious as there seem to be countless variations from person to person.

      Thanks for your reply Ron. Now I see that salt and caffeine in coffee must be avoided; I had always heavily salted my foods and drank several cups of coffee a day previously but can no longer. Best wishes.

      That is a good question. I can't remember. Part of me does not want to experiment, though part of me does, just to find out.
