Really sad to hear you are going through these tough times. Your music is really good, you have a lot of skill and passion and im sure you will succeed on your road to recovery and fight your way to the top
Thanks BeyondTheVeil. I’m resting a lot at the moment, which just basically means doing very little…not a bad thing for anyone really. We all need to rest from our busy schedules sometimes don’t we? Fortunately, I’m on my holidays and still have 10 days to go, so plenty of time to recover.
I suddenly developed Tinnitus several month ago. Loud ringing in my left ear. Comes and goes. Sometimes it’s there for several days, sometimes a break for a few days, then back again. Before the Tinnitus I noticed I would get occasional crackling in that ear when listening to loud music.
It’s an annoyance, but I’m gradually getting used to it. Had examinations at several ENT clinics but no joy.
Sometimes Tinnitus is a warning of Meniere’s Disease, but only if the patient also has dizzy spells. If you’ve got Tinnitus and dizziness, you would be well advised to seek treatment.The one thing I’ve found ‘helps’ is to take a daily dose of Aspirin (to thin the blood) and also some Korean Ginkyo.
KunsanMusic, I missed this post earlier sorry.
Well spotted. I was diagnosed with Meniere’s Disease a few years ago and do indeed suffer from dizzy spells (vertigo) from time to time. I have to be careful with things that trigger it off. I can’t scroll down through pages online fast, or play fast moving video games and I avoid watching fastly edited movies with shaking cameras (pretty much all new movies). At the time my Doctor gave me some tablets for vertigo and then basically just said go away. Vertigo can sometimes be set off by an ear infection too so its difficult to know if its permanent although I think mine is here to stay. I also went to an ENT specialist. He (and a few students lol) had a look up my nose and he came to the conclusion that I also had a twisted septum. So basically, all these things contribute to messing up my balance system.
These things are sent to test us I guess!
We’re quite happy over here in the bluebrick group. No problems at all! My colicky diet is the best it’s ever been too.
That’s so true. I love my boss. He is the most wonderful, special person that I know.
P.S. I’m self employed
As well as wishing Envato a Happy Birthday, I wish every single author here lots of sales today at 100% commission!
Sucks! But I say give it time! Take a rest! And honestly protect your ears as much as you can! God gave you only 2 of them. And I am not sure if it is just me or… But when I mix my stuff, I tend to turn down the volume low, because my ears can hear the difference in between the instruments better that way. No need for all that loud crap And I would maybe talk to your doc and explain him the situation and see what he suggests! ( I am sure you already did though) Keep us updated Good health to you!
Thanks Kurlykovs. It’s frustrating not being able to compose much but I’ve been resting my voice and ears all week. I did work on one piece yesterday though but at a very low volume….below 65d. It’s the way forward definitely to protect my ears but I noticed that for me, there is another thing too. Staring at notes on a computer screen for hours on end is very tiring and weary on the eyes and brain, so I feel like I’m resting a bit from that too.
We all need to rest and re-charge from time to time don’t we? We all need to hold back our addiction to making music from time to time.
