HOPEFULLY someone can relate.
« on: March 03, 2014, 06:17:31 PM »
over the past two years, i have had chronic tinnitus. basically, ringing in my ears for 24 hours a day, seven days a week. not just here and there, i get ringing. it's an all day every day thing. i literally woke up one day to this, and over the course of two years, i have lost my hearing completely [just about] in my left ear, which is also the effected ear with the tinnitus. when i plug my finger into my left ear and take it out, it feels like i am wobbly, if that makes sense.

i am trying to see if anyone else has experienced this at all. i do have a slight touch of HA [health anxiety] BUT, i am not someone with HA that runs to the doctors all the time, as soon as there is something that comes up that bothers me. any input would help -- as i am deathly afraid of going to doctors. thanks in advance.

You should go to the doctors, I had slight ringing but it was constant, turns out I just needed ear drops!
You need to go  get it looked at if you've lost your hearing! You might just need your ears cleaned, but better to get it checked out.

thanks -- but going to see a doctor, for me, is so much easier said than done. having panic attacks is no joke with me. i am not making excuses - but being that my husband is always away [he is in the navy] the only time i can go is when he is with me....and even at that time, it's easier said than done because....well? it's just hard.

I completely understand, but especially with the loss of hearing it does need to be looked at, it's probably just a case of hardened ear wax, in the meantime maybe try getting some over the counter drops and giving them a go? Can help soften any hardened wax making it easier for removal! Your ears are responsible for balance so it is likely that any built up wax would cause you to feel wobbly!

If you've not had them cleared and it has hardened then it would just build up!  So yeah I would think so

There is but it's not generally a light ringing, true cases of it are more like a loud ringing or thumping sound in your ears (had anxiety about this before and done A LOT of research)
I think everyone hears a slight ringing when there in a quiet place though? I know I always have, there's a big difference between that and true ringing in the ears x

there's no such thing as tinnitus. it's like when the pharmaceutical companies tried to convince people that heartburn was a disease. or that allergies can't be simply overcome. what you're hearing is a normal sound, known as the inner-resonance or inner-harmonic, if i recall the yogic terminology. i've heard it every second of every day, for years, and i still look forward to hearing it. it's a constant. i can see how some other condition can cause you to hear it where you hadn't prior, but the sound itself is still natural. experiment with it. take some authority over your body and fix your hearing.

i appreciate you saying this to me, but i will take the terminology of "tinnitus" from someone with PhD behind their name or MD behind their name. not trying to be rude -- but tinnitus is real, lol.
