i was at my daughters birthday party in a local edinburgh pub last sat. it was busy and had apiano player with drum machine and vocals playing. i had my hearing aids in as my hearing is very bad, and was talking abit loudly but didnt think music was excessively loudi thought my hearing aids would compress the sound,i was chatting to friends and family BUT 2 days after it my T has gone through the roof. on a scale of 1 to 10 mine is 19 horrendous;ly loud even white noise not helping, i used to play drums and have cut right back to 1 gig every 6 weeks ive lost that great feeling when i played as i use earplugs so now it seems i have to stay out of pubs with music and cant attend parties for fear of it affecting my T i loved playing and listening to music .now my LOUD T,means i have to say goodbye to many things i loved. ive suffered for 4 years and it doesnt get any better for me! now im afraid to go into pubs clubs or play my drums even with the ear plugs in.and wonder if and when myT WILL REDUCE!!!!!!!!
