I get that ringing in my ears often. I liken it to cicadas. I notice it when I'm under stress or if my sinuses are acting up. My mother gets it a lot as well...and we live together. So, in looking at the stress factor, either one or the other of us usually has it going on. LOL! At times it can get pretty loud, can't it?
I have no family or friends around me other than my husband and children so I very greatly appreciate this group and i'm hoping to become a regular. You are all great people! (I also need to add my father in law does live fairly close as well..I don't want to leave him out.)
