After too many years working construction and playing in punk rock bands if I didn't have tinnitus I'd be worried something was wrong.

I did think it was insensitive how the room acted as if Keith should simply embrace hearing surf noises though. For a regular civilian, sure, that'd be nice, but how could they fail to consider that for one of America's great wave-punchers that sound is not associated with gentle relaxation.

Tinnitus sufferer here

Last June, I got bad infection and was treated with antibiotics. My ears started ringing almost immediately and have not stopped. Itís the high pitched ringing that you canít ignore when everything else is silent. Iíve been to the Dr.s several times and was told to take Flonase as itís related to allergies, it never stopped.

Last month, I was fitted for a hearing aid, due to damage that occurred years ago and has gotten progressively worse over the decade. I asked the Tech about the tinnitus and she said, ďOh yeah, thatís going to last foreverĒ. Shitty doctors couldnít fess up that Iím fucked, I got the truth from an assistant.

Iím still getting used to it but even as I type this, the ringing persists. There are days I wonder if Iíll ever be able to ignore it. Pray you never get this.

I was so surprised that the poll reads that over 40% of the listeners have this? Lordy!

Mine is the high pitched "eeeeeeeeeee" noise. I'm so used to it that I almost never think about it, it's just part of life. Then if I'm reading a book when the house is quiet suddenly I'm like "Oh god right...." Then for like an hour I can't ignore it.

Similar to the clock in my living room. When it cuts from commercial and there's a quick lull, I hear the "tock" then I hear it for the rest of the show... but only after the first one found a way to hit me.

Yes

I don't have it but my brother in-law has it so I voted yes for him.
Well technically he has MťniŤre's disease son kinda the same thing but he gradually gets worse until he looses all his hearing. So he doesnt really have tinittus.
Keith I'm sorry you got tinnitus and I hope it doesn't get worse. Oh and by the way I voted no, I didn't fuck with your science. Just wanted you to realize there are worse things then tinnitus, people who fuck with science! Oh and MťniŤre's disease is way worse. That part - totally true.

Luv da' show!

Yeah so you're a punk? Name every type of studded belt and denim vest. Thought so.

My guitarist in high school refused to wear ear plugs and the boy is deaf as a thing that is deaf. I've had it since I was about 18 but it doesn't really bother me too bad.
