I just got back from a trip to high grass/dessart. It is so quiet there you can hear vehicle movment from 2 miles. For me, it's never quiet.. the ringing seems so loud the first night away from the city..

I've heard accupunture can help in some cases. I heard of people who were getting almost total relief after getting several sessions while others only needed one session. Maybe you should look into it if its that serious.

Had it bad when I was younger, not too bad these days. Now I just can't hear too well. To many metal concerts right next to the PA, long motorcycle rides, and shooting without hearing protection when I was a kid. I now wear earplugs for anything that might be loud. For you youngsters, wear ear protection. Wear it to concerts, you can actually hear the music better, wear it when you mow the lawn, and for gods sake, never shoot without it. Hearing damage can't be repaired.

I always have to have some kind of background noise going so I don't have to listen to the ringing.

Hell, I'm only 27 and I've had for as long as I can remember. I used to go pheasant hunting every weekend when I was little. So little I used to hold my .410 under my armpit! Sometimes I just forget about it and don't even notice it but now that you mentioned it... WOULD SOMEONE PLEASE ANSWER THAT DAMN PHONE!

I first noticed it when I was 5 years old, after waking up from a nightmare. I've had it ever since.

I have it real bad. However I am able to pretty much ignore it. I have heard of some people wanting to kill themselves it drives them so crazy.

Thats how I get to sleep now....... I turn on a fan or something to cover the ring a little. I can't sleep very well at all when I go into the boonies because of the damn noise...in my head. For those of you that dont have it listne real close to the sound of your CPU fans. Try to imagine it bottled up in your head..

I am 29 years old with 70% hearing in right ear and 85% in left ear. Culprit? Shooting and working in industrial environments(Paper mills, gas plants, and now a power plant) [b]USE HEARING PROTECTION[/b] Once its gone, you cannot get it back!!! My wife reminds me everyday just how bad my hearing is(most of that, though, is selective hearing)

I've got it bad. Always wore hearing protection while shooting, but I'm a drummer and didn't learn my lesson until it was too late.

I must be lucky because after years of Aerosmith concerts and standing in front of the Marshall 100 wt., I have no ringing at all. But overall, my hearing is not nearly as good as it was before I decided to learn to play the guitar in 1976.

BAD! But its a way of life for me by now. I hardly notice it. No sense in me buying a watch or calculator with an alarm though. I couldnt hear it if it was pressed right up to my ear.
