Good evening everyone, I'm desperately reaching out to anyone who may be able to offer a bit of advice. I've suffered with poor hearing and tinnitus in my right ear on and off now for 8 years, it feels clogged and muffled with a ringing noise and is incredibly frustrating but not particularly painful. I've been to the ENT department recently and had a CT scan but when I had my meeting last week they said they couldn't find anything so would sign me over to audiology who would give me a hearing aid. I'm very confused by this as some days (although not many anymore) it isn't bad although the tinnitus never goes away anymore. How is a hearing aid going to help? When I asked what it might be they said possibly stress but surely I haven't been stressed for 8 years :/ Any help or comments is greatly appreciated as I do feel slightly palmed off by the specialist.
