I was just wondering if any of you guys also have tinnitus
I do, and it’s not really a big deal. For me, it’s worst first thing in the morning, when I’m getting out of bed
It’s funny . . . as I’m typing this, the “split screen” to the right is suggesting topics, which this is apparently similar to. But all the suggestions are dead wrong. Zero in common with tinnitus
Anyways, I’m not asking for advice or anything, as I don’t have problems dealing with it. AFAIK, it’s not affected the ability to perform my job duties. I’ve never NOT heard a noise, because of the ringing. To be humorous, on the american tinnitus association website, I was able to identify the exact tone I’m hearing, because they have several sample sounds I’m merely curious. I figure some of the military veterans might have it, as well as some of the guys that have been wrenching for decades, as well as maybe guys that spent a large part of their time at race tracks, etc.
Please . . . anybody wishing to tell me it’s all my own fault, because I didn’t sufficiently protect my hearing, attended too many heavy metal concerts, hung out in too many noisey bars, etc. just save it. It won’t change the situation. I know what I did or didn’t do. I have nobody to blame but myself, but there’s no point in anybody pointing fingers at me, calling me an idiot for allowing this to happen. Life happens
Carolyn, if you’re reading this . . . I urge you to accept this as car-related, because hearing damage does occur for people working in the automotive profession. It might later veer off into politics, but at least it started car-related
Again . . . I am NOT asking for advice. I am merely curious what you guys have to say, and maybe somebody else will be willing to admit they also have it.
