What a predicament! My hearing is bad and loud noise gives me headaches. I have been losing my hearing in my left ear for several years probably even before I had Meniere’s disease. My right ear so far is normal. Although lately I have been hearing popping sounds out of it, hopefully that isn’t anything to worry about. Ironically, loud noises are really starting to drive my crazy.
As I have written before I am fortunate not to have tinnitus, although I do have frequent bouts where a static or rumbling sound comes from my left ear. I don’t believe that it is tinnitus because, I may be wrong, tinnitus is constant. But the thing that is really bothering me know besides all the short Meniere’s attacks is loud noise. I took my son to an indoor pool the other day and the place was packed with kids. The minute that I walked in the noise became almost unbearable. Not only the sound of kids playing, but the echo of the indoor pool was driving me crazy! Does noise affect you?
Right now I am still on disability and I have a doctor’s appointment tomorrow. Since I have been continuing to have balance problems and meniere’s attacks he probably will agree to another extension. We will see…
