Unloading the clipazine on an amish machine gun last rifle season was the cause of my flare up. Either that or the endless heckling I got when I came back to camp. It's gotten somewhat better here of late.

Left ear pretty bad - right ear is ok but damn it gets real old when there isn’t any background noise. Way too much gunfire to expect anything better I suppose.

Many reasons, here. Farm and heavy equipment, competitive shooting, blasting crews, building construction, to name a few.
Years ago, hearing protection was almost unknown, and mufflers were not all that common.
Noise induced, per my audiologist - unlike 2 of my brothers, where it's genetic.
Right handed long-gun shooters tend to have left ear problems, due to the angle of the head.
I've had severe tinnitus since age 14 - 68 now. "Hard of hearing" my azz - I'm damn neared deaf.
Don't put off getting hearing aids - the longer you wait, the more of the ear to brain connection (cognizance) you lose.
And that loss is irreversible.


I've always been a curmudgeon - now I'm an old curmudgeon.

Yup...
Year round crickets since about 1971. Co inky dinkly, about the same time as I bought my .17 Remington

Doctors back then were undecided whether mine was from loud noises, or infantile fever during a bout of measles before I was a year old.
Doctor supposedly told my folks that if I lived I'd be deaf. And likely retarded.
106 degrees for a couple of days.

The old man, when I really screwed something up, was known to say, "that damned Doc was right!"

And yeah... It's funny....

The extreme tinnitus that some suffer, not quite as amusing...

Your comment on your old man evoked a giggle and similar verbal slaps from my old man. His two favorites were a bit different but same idea. "I know you weren't born stupid!" was oft heard as was, "Your mother's genes are really on display today, kid..." wink Rog', I'm feeling like a contributor now. Maybe shouldn't have taken you to that Garbage show at the Orpheum downtown a few years back. Thinking back I recall being confused when you asked me how much I paid for the Jefferson Airplane tickets... As an aside, friend or not, I'd have lost my shyt and struggled with not returning the favor, TWICE, to the sorry bastard whose stupidity and negligence cost you so dearly then and forever on out. Pretty much unforgivable, IMO. I almost always make it a point hunting or shooting w/people I've done neither with before. I like my hearing, so need people to not ever put it at risk, be it with a bird hunt or at a range. I'm lucky my tinnitus is very mild and sympathize w/those who suffer severe cases.

If you've ever heard what it sounds like after a big batch of Cicadas hatch out and are singing in the trees,....that's what I hear constantly.

Here is something that ALL of YOU GUYS should try, my dear wife some time in her 40s started hearing a noise in her head doc's did not know what it was and tried a few different things with no relive, one night as i was laying beside her I could actually hear the noise ,, kind of a swishing sound. so off to the doc OK i can hear that , NOBODY had thought of trying to hear the sound DA, SO then find out if someone else can hear the noise that you hear,
It turns out that she had a malformation of blood vessels inside the skull but outside of the brain, almost like a patch of steelwool of vessels and the sound was blood being forced through the restrictions .

I won't go through all the things they tried but the main thing that is important is some one else besides you can hear the noise, and that becomes the starting point of treatment.

If any of you want more info PM me

40+ years of it. Sucks, but have obviously gotten used to it.
