  1. A couple of things about them. #1, i think i need to see one. I have earplugs, but i want specially fit awesome ones. And like..the last couple of days, out of nowhere this ringing comes into my righ tear and i cant hear anything, so i plug my ear, and it goes away then. But then it comes back sometimes. I havent been jamming too much latly. But anyhoo. #2, is anyone an audiologist here??~?? #3, i think i wanna be one, i dont know why, it just kind of interests me (im only 16, so i think thats what im gonna do when i grow up). Anyone know anything about them or anything.

    Sounds like you may have tinitis. Go see an ENT (specialist) for that. The audiologist is the person to see for the ear plugs.

  9. see idk if i have tinitis. like, i know this guy who has it, and he can hear a loud ringing all the time. I have recently gotten ear plugs and stuff. When i go to bed and its totally scilent, i can hear a little ringing, but only when its dead quiet. but this ringing that comes on strong then goes away when i plug my hear hasent come back sence the weekend...maby just a little thing. Im not sure though. where would i go to see like...how my ears are. Like to wsee if they are damaged at all and like how they are doing and see if i have tinitis. i want a little checkup. I want to be able to hear in 30 years.

    that's tinnitus all right, just a very mild case.

    i have times where it flares up for no reason, but most of the time i can't notice it unless it's really quiet.
  11. AAAAAAAAAAA i dont want it. is it curable??~??

    I have it too, and I can hear it all the time when it is quiet and sometimes it flares up.

    Sorry man, but it stays with you for life.

    You ll get used to it eventually.

    uh oh. Last time a thread similar to this came up, i read all the stuff and got a punched in gut feeling. I think i'm in the same boat as impulsee. I can remember when i was little just sitting or laying in my bed & hearing a high pitch. I always just thought that that was the sound of silence so to speak-like there wasn't ever a true silence if that makes any sense. I can hear it particularly loud after a rehearsel w/FE Band [12 members-3 trumpet, 1 tromone, 1 bari sax, 1 tenor sax, french horn, drums, 2 synths, piano, me]. If i don't have a rehearsel & there isn't any ambient noise-like a low pitch rumble of a fan, air conditioner, car driving by, it's there. So the best thing is to go to an ENT & get some ear plugs ASAP. That i can do. Thanks for the info & thats all
  14. yup, i already have ear plugs. I know what you mean too. when i was little, i always thought thre could never be scilence, it always had to be ringing. OOPS my bad LOL.

    - w00t im only 17 :'( (17 in may ^_^)

    Thats why its important to see an ENT, make sure thats what it is. It could also be anyone of a number of things. Get a definitive diagnosis, then protect your hearing from now on.

    I'm 17 in June :D . I think i'll definately opt for the set of ear plugs now [not the foam ones]. I'll also talk to my parents about the ENT thing. Thats all
