I am sitting listening to podcasts which I love. I learn so much. I use my Oticon Opn hearing aids to listen via bluetooth. The sound is great. It feels like the sound is originating in the middle of my head versus two separate sounds left and right. What I realize is the clarity of… Read More »
Every morning I wake up and I listen. I hear my tinnitus. It is not a loud high frequency but it is there. In fact, as I sit listening to a podcast I can hear the same ringing. It has been about 11 years. October 2008 is when it became my daily companion. It does… Read More »
A few weeks ago I was eating lunch and suddenly I felt this pain around my right bottom molar. I went to see my dentist and she referred me to my endontist who had done my root canal 11 years ago just prior to my tinnitus showing up. My dentist prescribed some amoxicillin which did… Read More »

I looked up at her… Read More »

This morning as I walked to the train in the 50 degree weather I heard birds chirping. Now this is not unusual event for a warm day for a Chicago winter day. What is a little surprising is I heard them without my hearing aids. I usually seem to have trouble hearing the chirping sound… Read More »

This morning I woke up and my tinnitus was low. Hmmmm. This has happened before. What causes reduced stimulation in the brain where the tinnitus is occurring that may be contributing to the lower volume? Something is going on. No kidding? Yes no kidding.
