Hello to you all, my story begins last September of 2014 while at work I started to get a ringing in my left ear. later that day I noticed a hearing loss in that ear as well, I figured it must be something serious when I couldn't hear the dial tone of the telephone and even when I put a mp3 speaker up to that ear I heard nothing at all, but the ringing I still heard inside my head. Two months later and after a hearing test the ear specialist confirmed my initial self diagnosis that I had total hearing loss in my left ear, but by then I was experiencing a myriad of differing tones, bells, chimes, sometimes simultaneously. At first I was amused by this phenomenon but I must admit it is getting a little old now and I just want it to go away. I have experienced a lot of the same sort of anxiety and fears that accompany the big " T " and lately it has amped up quite a bit, constant DRONE happening. I am waiting an MRI coming up in late April hoping it will shed some light on why? Some other symptoms like vertigo, light headedness, sort of tinny feeling in the head almost vibrating when it amps up getting into my dreams, had a nightmare the other night felt like an electric current going through me then I woke up disturbed. Has anyone else had the T with total hearing loss in one ear out there? I am so thankful that I came across this website it is already having a good effect on my situation just knowing there are so many others having similar experiences. I almost bought into that so called miracle book remedy thing then I had a sober second thought to search for any reviews and that led me to this site and I knew I was on to something good. I have noticed that getting upset about anything can cause an increase in symptoms so I am trying to find ways to remain as calm as I can kind of a Zen thing, I would appreciate any words of wisdom some of you veterans might share to help cope with this. Tks. John.
