my ears ring continuously. Since I was 17 years old and shot a snub nose .357 without any hearing protection. I'm 52 years old now and live
with a ringing that is so loud It dominates any other sound in my life. the only time I do not hear this ringing is when I am around very loud sounds
like loud music or sirens (I'm a firefighter). The ringing is louder in my left ear than my right. I can hear usually 4 different tones at the same
time. two or three are continuos in tone. One, sometime more, of these ringing sounds fluctuate in tone and volume. If I concerntrate on the sounds I
can envision the sounds coming from different locations
overhead left rear of my head,
straight out from my left ear about a foot away,
2 inches inside my right ear,
inside my left ear moving in random directions and volumes inside my head.
So there you have it.
That's my life, what I hear from the time awake until I fall asleep. I've learned to accept it and more or less ignore it. But its always there.
I am thankful I am not in cronic pain, have my vision, full mobility and can hear. so put into perspective I'm not complaining
