I have always had Tinnitus

I have only just found this website and I find it most interesting and informative.

I have always had Tinnitus, I can't ever remember not hearing 'head noises' When I was very young no one ever believed me but now Tinnitus is a well know malady. I have some hearing loss due to working in the Engineering Industry during the time when Ear Protection was not a big deal.

My Tinnitus does not seem to effect me hearing too much, apart from high pitched sounds, [ mine is a high pitched whine ] not a bad thing anyway.
I have come to call my Tinnitus my ?War Wound' and blame being Bombed in the UK when I was a baby!! I wonder if I can claim war damages?

I will keep looking into this site and reading other peoples accounts of living with Tinnitus
