I lost hearing in one ear after a root canal. Now I have very loud tinnitus in that ear.

I've been told I have hearing loss after several tests and last year I purchased a pair of hearing aids for both ears.  I also have tinnitis but feel it has gotten worse since I've started wearing them.  Don't know if that's the cause though.   

What I hear is something like the wind and sometimes it sounds louder than other times. Getting back to those hearing aids, which I'm still trying to get used to. They do cost a pretty penny but I feel I could've gotten the same thing for a much less price than what I paid.  They usually range in price from 1500 dollars each.

Yes - that's what the Doctor says it is.  H hear ringing in my ears all of the time and have for several years.  It is bad all of the time, so much so that I do not hear as well as I have in the past (or cannot decipher sounds as well)  I always, ALWAYS, hear the ringing.

Some Sam's Club stores have Hearing Centers.  They have many different styles of hearing aids and personal sound amplifiers at a fraction of the cost of going to a hearing center.  They do the testing there too.

 

My tinnitus has become so bad, that I am finally going to get a hearing aid or a personal sound amplifier.  My doctor said I would know when it was time, when I couldn't understand what people are saying to me (when in a crowd) that it affects my daily life and work.  My family is telling me it's time.  It's not that I didn't want one, but I didn't have $4,000-$5,000 for a pair.

 

I am definitely go to Sam's Club to see about their service, now that they are much more affordable than before!

My Grandmother had tinnitus, but it was mostly nosie in her ears or head.  I've been getting music, only music, like a band playing the same tune over and over.  It's isn't bad, but it is annoying.  I never connected it with epilepsy. I don't know much about epilepsy, but I thought that was related more to mobility issues, not hearing. 

 

I have hearing aids that work well for understanding speech. I don't wear them regularly, but I still "hear" that repetitious music playing in the background.  My Grandmother wasn't able to wear hearing aids because they magnified the noises she heard from the tinnitis.

all my life lol. Off and on, when its quiet, I get a roaring ( like niagra falls) in my ears. I have slept with a TV on since my teens because of it. My son has it too. Its not EVERY night, and doesnt happen ( or isnt noticable) when other noise is going on..like mowing or something.
So it begins.

Recently I noticed after friends of mine were talking about sounds in the years that I have a continual soft noise in my ears. Not quite sure if it's like soft buzzing, it's hard to describe. Should I get my ears checked?

i am finding that the best way to heal my bad leg is to not use it. i have been disabled since 2012. it was really hard to do. the doctor said some get in 2 years 5, 7 and never. what was so hard for me to learn is this that the muscles and bones were torn and the more when i use the muscle i am at risk of tearing these legiments in my leg even more. people are aware of how hard shoes on our feet are. you may not know it but they also do great damage to our leg even going on a walk to a store. i have been relying on the community more to help with services like laundry, shopping and mail orders. sometimes 1 lift can set you way back again.
