Re: Tinnitus

Years of shooting with no hearing protection has left me with a permanent ringing in my ears it is more pronounced when the room is quiet.

Re: Tinnitus

Had tinitus for years as a result of playing loads of gigs in front of marshall stacks with insufficient protection in my younger days. Unfortunately for me it may lead to lead to permanent hearing loss in my left ear.

Re: Tinnitus

Was in the forces and never used ear protection when using small arms

Worked on Radio systems for years

Listened to loud loud loud music for years

No tinnitus!

Go figure?

Just luck I suppose?

Re: Tinnitus

I suppose it deserve it really, I work in a lot of noisy environments plant rooms and offices full of females lol
But I did have subs etc years ago,
I think it was tide in to some new drugs I was taking(from the Dr b4 anyone asks If i can sell them any lol)
There was a few side affects so it might go away now ive stopped taking them,
the actual tinnitus didn't start until the day after I stopped taking them.
