getting there. Eeeeeeeeeeeee. Wow, just read some other intros...I need to add some details. I can pinpoint the night I 1st realized that I had tinnitus even though I didn't know what it was. I was 8 years old and it was the summer of 1979. I may have had it before that, but on that night it was so loud that I couldn't sleep. I never mentioned it because I thought it was normal and figured everyone had it. I suspect a prescription drug caused it, but I just don't know.
