Hearing Loss and Tinnitus

33 posts in this topic

Georgie, I'm delighted that you have your hearing aids working again, at long last, and that it is all working out good for you!



I'd say it calls for a Sclero Happy Dance, and invite anyone and everyone to dance along with me!



Warm Hugs,

The most important thing in the world to know about scleroderma is sclero.org.

Sclero Happy Dance!!


That !was just soooo cute, soooo funny. It sure put a smile on my dial! :VeryHappy:


Got an appointment next Wednesday to have the hearing aides tuned up, then after that I will tape them to my glasses and then I'm all done.

The thing that has astonished me most is that since being diagnosed with scleroderma , and as all the symptoms escalated and my health deteriorated, I just took all the changes in my stride.


Some ruffled my feathers more than others, but none of the health issues ever reduced me to tears, but that tinnitus did!


At the moment the high pitched buzz (on a scale from 1 to 10) would only rank as a 4 maybe. I can tolerate that but when I had that high pitched buzz at 8 or 9 level, and oh my 24/7, with no respite, I really was struggling. I was a mess!


So now with tinnitus under control I am one very happy and contented vegemite. My PC nurse also told me that the naprosyn I was taking was also know to aggravate tinnitus, so that has been ditched. Now all is well in OZ Land and I am happy to announce that I am in a much better frame of mind, so good in fact that I too can mentally join in the Happy Scleroderma Dance!


:emoticons-line-dance: :thank-you-2: :terrific: THANKS LADIES "g"

You girls are just sooooo funny .... I love that sclero happy dance ! It just makes me smile ..... :emoticons-line-dance: You have all been so great, so supportive and so informative; what you have all taught me has LITERALLY been "life changing" :happy-day: ..... you're like medical dictionaries on legs !!! :lol:


I must admit I don't always understand the 'medical pages' as they're too technical for me to absorb; I learn more from reading all your posts where you translate everything in simple terms, so yes, Robyn was right in saying we are very lucky to have you girls in our corner ..... hugs "G"
