hearing practice with issues

Postby Ccaesar » Thu May 06, 2021 3:29 pm

Hello everyone
I am asking out of curiosity.
Does anyone have experience in dealing with tinnitus in their learning?

I do actually and it can be a nuisance after I've been using earphones for listening (even during). I switched to a headset, but it's more conspicuous when you're out and about.

After listening I can get a bit of ringing in the ear and it is a nuisance distracting from the calm when you stop listening and soak up what you've heard. For me it's not constant, so I just manage it with volume control. If yours is worse it's worth having it looked at. A guy I know from another forum had his treated and is now back to listening to music. Prior to that he couldn't even listen.

Sorry for not responding earlier. I am so lucky I also have inflammation in my arms on top of that. Yes it's most of the time and without an apparent reason. What kind of treatment? I am very curious!
