Yes I have tinnitus. I think I’ve talked about this with someone on this board actually. I wasn’t sure it was tinnitus — and to this day it’s self-diagnosed — but everyone I know with tinnitus say it’s tinnitus. Sounds like pipes are breaking and hissing in my ears, happens periodically, with varying degrees of frequency and severity. Moreso in the last couple years.
I’m sure I got it from spending my twenties in basements playing really loud music with no headphones and going to concerts and blasting music directly into my ear drums every day of my life.
I no longer wear headphones.
