The Sound of Silence

What’s that like? The journey of one Meniere’s case.

It began in my late teen years. I became aware of sporadic ringing and buzzing sounds in my right ear. They resembled the beeps heard during a pure tone audiometry hearing test, but I certainly wasn’t hanging out in a soundproof room with an audiologist nearby. I found it curious but not alarming, so I didn’t think about it too much.
