Ears aren't helping!!!
« on: August 11, 2016, 04:02:02 am »
So, I have got tinnitus in my right ear and its unusable for very long periods. So I use my left ear mostly for all the mixing and the mastering process. But now, even my left ear has also started deteriorating and both of my ears hurt badly even if I hear some music for about 30-45 minutes. I want to make so much music but my ears just won't let me. And now it has put me in such a dilemma as to what should I do ahead? I mean there's nothing more "dear" to me than making and listening to music. Its getting really very depressive. Help me people!!!  :'(

See a doctor. This isn't something the average person is qualified to help you with.

I would definitely go seek professional medical advice on this, as there are really only two reasons your hearing would be deteriorating at the rate you seem to be facing

1. Some degenerative disease has attacked your hearing, and you should seek medical attention for that immediately.

2. You are listening to your music WAY too loud or exposing yourself to extremely loud volumes with absolutely no ear protection.

In both cases, you need to really pause and figure out what is going on, because it's going to be very hard to write music if you can't hear music. Not impossible, of course, but you should try to preserve as much hearing as you have left.

The problem is that when I acquired tinnitus in my right ear I thought it was okay as I still had my left ear intact. But the problem has started only recently when even my left ear also started hurting. Feels like my eardrums have become too sensitive or maybe they have always been and now that I've started producing, the incompetency of my ears is catching up!!!

Don´t mess with your hearing!  Go see a doctor right away.  Hearing does not magically improve, and once damage is done it´s not fixable.  Take it very seriously.  Depending on the degree of tinnitus, it may or may not go away.  Get it checked asap.  Good luck
