I have noticed that many times here on ATS folks have mentioned ringing in an ear or both ears. On the surface, it seems like a lot of people out of a
small population that have such a "condition" that is referred to as tinnitus.
I developed ringing in my left ear several years ago. Drove me nuts at first. Then, I sort of got used to it, and it also sort of quieted to a level
that was tolerable (I guess).
Then the right ear started last year, with very low tones, so real and not ringing that I'd often get up and look out the window at night to see if
there was a truck or plane or something rumbling by, just to realize it was my ear (or head). It is intermittent. Occasional ringing in both ears.
But the other night, it felt like someone turned up the volume and pressure to some insane level. It was weird and disturbing. I instinctively reached
for my "third eye" area of my forehead, and pressed my finger against it. It somehow relieved the pressure and made the sound lessen or be tolerable
again. I kept thinking how odd this whole thing was.
Was going to write about it but figured I would get the usual tinnitus definitions.
Btw - my hearing is perfect, I've had two indepth hearing tests and have gone to the specialist. No loud music, loud machinery in my past. Don't use
any medicines, not even otc.
Not saying it's anything but physical, but sometimes it seems so odd, like the other night. I felt like I was getting "microwaved" or blasted with
waves of vibration or something.
I wonder if the percentage of the average population vs the percentage of ATS-ers with ringing are the same or different.
