This is not for me but for my 60 yr old mom. She has 65% hearing and has what she describes as loud noises in her ears, especially in times of stress AND when her blood pressure goes up. She has been seeing a specialist for 3 years who has her on meds that dont work, has never mentioned a hearing aid, and has done tons of tests and says frankly we cant figure it out. I wonder if her condition is a form of tinnitus or is that only "ringing" and if not that, what other things could it be?
