I think tinnitus is God's way of yelling at me

    Serious, will there ever be a cure for tinnitus?

    Not only to both ears ring so loud that I can barely think, but they ring at different tones.

    It's enough to drive me insane.

    I've got a mild case in my left ear (thanks to my brother-in-law shooting at some ducks when I had my earplug out). I don't notice it except when it's really quiet, like when I'm out in the woods or trying to sleep in a hotel room without a fan.

    There are alleged cures available at the health food stores. But I doubt their effectiveness, so I've never dropped the $30 for a month's supply of tablets to try them.

    I've got it bad, too. More high-pitched recently than it ever has been. Damned if I know what the problem is.

    What did you guys say?

    I've got some kind of deal where I can hear ANYTHING if the rest of the world is quiet around me. If there's ANY background noise at all, I can't hear diddleshit.

    Same here. My hearing is practically nil in a crowded environment. That's a major reason why I use a tape recorder. With basketball doubleheaders usually the case in Kansas, I often have to talk to the girls' coach while the band is playing and announcements are being made between games or at halftime of the boys game and I can't hear him at all. The mic in my recorder, though, screens out all the background noise.
