    HISSING

    5
    It took a couple of days to put a name on the sound I've been hearing: HISSING.When it started a couple of days ago my first thought to look at the stove and see if a pot was boiling. Then I looked at the washing machine - not running.Tonight I walked over the heat vent to see if i was hearing the heat kick on in the house and that's when I identified the sound as hissing. Then I looked online...

It sounds like an old fashioned radiator like the kind in old inner city apartments. Like steam coming out of a valve.I kept looking and looking and since I live in a condo with another unit above me. I can hear their plumbing. I hear when they flush and when they are...

    Tinnitus Relief

    Ok, this is kinda of a sad, but true kinda story. I have Tinnitus since I used to play in a band. I played base and I played it loud. The thing about base is that you need to be close to the drums to really hear and connect with the drummer in order to fully connect to the music. I played years without any protection for my ears. After a year, I devleoped Tinnitus and it was the worse thing that...

    Hello everyone, I'm new to the group and I have a question. My doctor wants to put me on an antibiotic--either Metronidazole or Doxycycline Hyclate. Does anyone know if either of these can make your tinnitus worse? I have to be on it for ten days. Thanks for any input!

    Hi everyone,About 6 months ago I moved into a new home. I was very rundown by the time I had moved to the new place and within the first month I got quite ill. I was diagnosed with an upper respiratory infection and chronic sinusitis. So I finally gave in and got a whole stack of medication including antibiotics, antihistamines and whatever else the doctor prescribed. Great, so about a week...

    Something we CAN do

    3
    Friends, something we can do for this condition we suffer from. The scientific community does not recognize this as a disease. Most have learned to live with it and not require treatment. Hence there is no money in treatment or further studies that lead to treatment. It does not have to be that way. The hearing aid white noise machine does not work (at least for me) hence only source of revenue...

The additional disorder may be...
