Hi, I'm Tom, I'm 58 and have had T for quite some time now. Thankfully, most of the time it is an annoying and constant high pitched hiss in both ears. Sometimes the T pulsates randomly as if it was angry and growling. However, when I am tired or stressed it becomes almost deafening. When it gets this bad I get vertigo. Although the vertigo seems to be wearing off now or I am learning how to cope with it. I also have hearing loss in my right ear and I am beginning to think I'll need a hearing aid. This looks like a minefield, with the range and cost of them, and not knowing how it will effect my T.
