I went to an ENT Doc today for my hearing. My wife thinks my hearing is getting bad because I can’t hear her sometimes. Maybe it’s selective?
Anyway I’ve had ringing in my ears since forever and I kind of blamed it on the fact that my father used to “give me a clout around your ear hole” when he felt I deserved it.
It turns out that the ringing may be from a serious infection I had when I was very young, 4 or 5. Apparently heavy doses of antibiotics can save your life but affect hearing or cause tinnitus.
I’m glad it may have been caused by something other than a swat on the side of my head.
So I’m going for a official hearing test in a couple of weeks.
