Hello everyone. I'm new to this forum and new to T. Reading a lot of your posts has made me not feel as crazy. Today is day 21 for me. My T came on very sudden and for what reason, I still do not know. I was watching TV, my hearing muted in my right ear for about 5 seconds and both ears started ringing. Just like that. I'm practically a hermit (lol) and had no exposure to loud noises. My life "was" fairly stress-free. I'm only 36 and have always had excellent hearing. I really don't know what happened.
For the first few days the ringing was really loud and equal in both ears. Now it seems like the ringing is gone from my left ear (although I read one is usually just louder than the other and masks the noise from the other ??) And the past few days it seems to be getting quieter and quieter and for this I am SO thankful!
BUT, next week my GP wants me to go to a specialist (and I have an appointment) to get a "pressure test" done in my ears. My biggest fear is that this test, and all other hearing tests, will make my T worse. Has this ever happened to any of you? I'm especially worried about this "pressure test".
