Hello dear t-talkers. Just about a week ago I found myself with a 10khz constant ringing in my ears. I'm now left with mixed feelings of confusion, worry, acceptance, interest, humbleness, appreciation and fear. Feelings I'm sure most of the experienced people here have already been through. Needless to say, Ive spent the last days of my free time googling the inside outs of this subject to learn what I can. I yet have over a week to go see my doctor about it. So I dont know for sure yet what the cause is. But I guess its noise-induced, as I've spent the last month going out to small clubs standing close to speakers, playing with my new synth and listening to music on my earbuds probably too loud. Another suspect is getting water in the ear / infection from spending time in a floatation tank the last months without earbuds. A commercial tank which other people also use but is filtered between each float. Tinnitus is also in my family. Id actually be more comfortable knowing this is self-inflicted from ignorance about sound-protection rather than getting it from floatation. Falling to sleep, and stressfull times at work when concentration and focus is required, are the most challenging moments. Yet I realize its still early, and getting used to this and learning to ignore it / accept it is part of the process does help. Also reading on this forum and learning about other people dealing with this really makes me feel less alone about it. So I guess that's my introduction for now. I don't know if I have any questions, but feel free to throw stuff at me. I'm trying to keep a balanced outlook for now of both obsessing about it and at the same time trying to forget about it, or at least stay calm and not panic. If theres anything I know from before, it is that worrying doesn't make anything better. Have a wonderful weekend you ringers and buzzers!
