Granted tinnitis is very unique to each person who has it, but weighing in here with my own 24x7x365 tinnitis I’ve had since taking medication for an ear infection at age 14 …
My “ring tone” is a steady tone in both ears. I tried to hit keys on a piano once and figure out what that note is, but I’ve forgotten. It’s around middle-C I think?
I went from 14 to 32 with NO aids at all and a pretty bad hearing loss. But I found the minute I put my aids ON (and every day since), the louder ambient noises just drown out the tinnitus. When I take my aids off to sleep at night, I’m lucky it’s that flat tone - for the MOST part - so I don’t have any trouble falling asleep.
However! My ears are like weather vanes. Whent the pressure changes to LOW, I get some real loud BONG! BONG! BONG! combined with a louder and more tuneful tinnitus tone.
If the weather gets HOTTER all of a sudden, I get more rapid-fire DING-DING-DING-DING-DING! Funny, but those tones make me smile cuz the weather is getting BETTER!
These weather-related tones come on about a day in advance of the weatherman’s forecast. So perhaps I should’ve been a weather-gal myself back in the day?
