    well, only one ear.

    Started almost 5 weeks ago, turns out I have tinnitus. Had lots of blood tests and a Brain MRI to rule out all kinds of stuff like Lyme Disease, thyroid problems, Acoustic Neruomas (tumors!!), and everything came back negative.

    The EENT specialist concluded that my problem is "beyond medical knowledge", swept it into a "viral" sub-catagory, and the end result is "It may go away, it may never go away, we have no idea wtf".

    I got a noise machine and it helps to sleepi with the ambient noise of ocean waves.

    Fucking thing sucks.

    I've been sleeping with a fan on for 20 because of this. You get used to it.

    That sucks Benham, any problem with balance or just a ringing in the ears? :console:

    Here is my first attempt at making baguettes after being in France last week :grad:

    I've tried different things over the years. The constant noise of the fan seems to be the best.

    Wait until your ear starts to sound like a blown speaker when you hear running water.
