I had an annoying hum in my left ear for over a week. The best way to describe it is the sound of a hotel ice machine through the wall. At first I thought it was coming from our attic fan which is temperature controlled and so has been running non-stop in this heat. But then I noticed I had it away from the house. On Friday, as I was eating lunch, it was really annoying. I wanted to call my doctor right then and there but the restaurant noise was too loud. So I went to the restroom to use my phone. But just as I pulled my phone out of my pocket a bunch of people came in, so I decided to wait until I got to my truck. By the time I got to my truck, I had forgotten or decided to wait until Monday to call.
Sunday night my phone rang and my phone had an annoying hum in it. I thought it was my friend's phone and didn'y say anything. Later, when Carole called, the hum was still there so I knew it was my phone. Carole heard it too. Then after we had been talking for a while, the hum left. I couldn't tell if my ear had stopped humming or the phone had stopped humming, but Carole said it was the phone. And then Monday morning I woke up and hum in my ear had left too. As horrible as it was, I'm glad I got to experience it because it gave me some insight into tinnitus which my poor Sweetie has suffered from his entire life. Poor fella.
