I'll put my hand up for this...
Every since I was a child and lived in North America, I've always heard a buzzing/high pitched sound in my ears.
The best way I can describe the sound *I* hear, is that of when an old CRT television is turned on in a room and you hear that high frequency buzzing.
It's very similar. But for me the sound is 24/7.
I figure it's tinnitis - though I've never been one to listen to loud music nor been exposed to any obvious sources of decibels that would damage my
But I have read some people just have tinnitis (on the net of course so how tru e any of it is, is anyone's guess!)
However even now, if I sit still and stop typing.....yup... it's there. That same buzzing sound, that same high pitched frequency.
For me though, it doesn't impede my hearing -- I can still hear impecibly well and was tested when I joine the reserves years ago, clicking the
buttons in the little booth listening to near inaudible sounds and apparently I scored very very well.
Anyhow, yup, cound me in. I have always heard a ringing for as long as I can remember. This dates to back when I lived in North America as a child,
up to this very moment living in the south east of Blighty!
