The day started off well. This was the day I was going to finally find out what was going on with the hearing and high-pitched whistling in my right ear.
I had an appointment with the ENT (Ear, Nose & Throat) specialist but, unfortunately, he couldn’t find anything wrong with my ear.
As a precaution, he sent me for an MRI scan and I was given the official “all-clear” and told there was nothing wrong with my ears.
So, what was this high-pitched F# sound I was hearing?
The ENT specialist came back with…tinnitus!
My journey had just begun, and over the course of the next 12 months my world collapsed around me.
I couldn’t think straight. I couldn’t sleep and, as a result, I was getting very low and depressed.
There had to be another way – there had to be a better way to live than this…
