I just wanted to throw out a question however I'm not sure if its Lupus related or not or some other kind problem. I have noticed that my hearing is deteriorating which is very scary for me as I'm in my early 30's. I have a problem understanding what people say unless I am within a few feet and I can read their lips for backup. I at first thought it was people and that they didn't talk clearly; but I noticed that other people can hear fine what I have trouble hearing (actually understanding the words more than the actual hearing of them).
I get occasional high pitched tones in my ears and I also sometimes get what feels like a pulsing in my ear (left ear only) although not like a heartbeat but like a wind sounding pulse and sometimes is irratic like morse code or something (not consistent) - sorry very hard to describe.
Does anyone else have problems with their ears or hearing that is related to Lupus or any other connective tissue disease or autoimmune problem? I think this is something that I should probably get checked out soon.
