My Tinnitus Sounds Like…

My recently deafened ear rings constantly, but it is not always the same sound. Here are some things that it sounds like.

  • The computers in a 1970s science fiction movie.
  • Jungle sounds, lots of monkeys and birds.
  • A heavy steady rain.
  • Ross playing the keyboard on Friends.
  • A dial-up modem.
  • A jet getting ready for takeoff.
  • A coffee-maker brewing coffee.
  • Elevator music rhythms played on wooden drums.
  • Someone playing only the 8th octave of the piano, or the only the 1st.

Next post: what my cochlear implant sounds like.
