Which is why all the TGP'ers don't know tone...they're all old, have tinnitus and can't hear a full frequency band.

FTW!!!!! RIGHT ON DUDE!

I don't like trying to one up people either, if I attempt it I make sure to succeed.

The most common cause may be noise-induced hearing loss, but that isn't what tinnitus is. "Tinnitus (pron.: /tɪˈnaɪtəs/ or /ˈtɪnɪtəs/; from the Latin word tinnītus meaning "ringing") is the perception of sound within the human ear in the absence of corresponding external sound."

A labrador is a dog, but that doesn't mean a dog is a labrador.

That never ends......there for permanant......and most all medical terms are in latin.......wife and mother are both RN's couldnt help but learn this crap.

But yes it is self induced. Or casued by something other than a gentic defect. For instance my grandfather got it WWII becasue of all the cannons that he used while in the Navy. And my fathers baby sitter smacked both his ears. Resulting him losing a little over 50% of his hearing. Alot of people have it and not even know it to! Doctor had to ask if i had ringing in my ears and i said yes. He said i can tell because there is alot of inner ear damage.

(not trying to be a dick i promise.) Just spreading the love. And i like joking around alot.

But it does end in a lot of cases...

"For tinnitus due to acute acoustic trauma, approximately 35% of cases report subsiding tinnitus at three months after the trauma, with approximately 10% of these cases being the degree of complete disappearance of the tinnitus, as studied among young men having acquired tinnitus from gunshots.[93]"

Fortunately my tinnitus subsided, but it took several years.

I do still have a large gap in my hearing range and always will, barring a medical breakthrough, but excellent hearing both above and below that frequency band. I can't hear crickets, which is occasionally a blessing but I'd really rather have my hearing back. I note as I get older, I have a harder time filtering background noise during conversation as well which I suspect is going to get worse.

It was caused by firearms, heavy equipment operation and racing when I was young and too stupid to use proper hearing protection.

Don't do what I did, it's not worth it. It's frankly utterly ****ing ignorant and you WILL pay the price later on in life. I still love and appreciate music, but there's a part of me that wonders how much of it I'm missing...

I did for quite a while, but now I use a good set of electronic muffs, which allows me to hear what's going on around me without risking further hearing damage.
