I am so glad I found this group.

My name is Jakk, I am 17, and I live in San Diego with my parents and my animal menagerie.

I have never had a problem with my hearing until one morning when I woke up and it was like someone hit in me in my inner ears with a baseball bat. For two months it sounded like I was in a tunnel, people sitting right next to me sounded a room away, and the noise started...quite and in the background. I told my mother and she just said "oh, I'll make an appointment right away"

Well a now, year later, it doesn't sound like people are far away and I don't have tunnel hearing but that noise...that god awful pulsating high pitched screech.... has taken over my head. I can't focus on school lessons because, quite frankly, I can barely hear my teachers. Coupled with my insomnia (I have had primary insomnia since I was very young), real sleep is maybe a twice a week treat. My mother isn't going to make that appointment no matter how many times I ask her to and even if there was something a doctor could prescribe she refuses to medicate anyone in the family but the dog.

I guess my biggest questions are:

Is there anything I can do to combat the noise (even a little bit) or that I can ask my teachers to do in order to make school easier?
How in the hell can I convince my mom there is a problem?

Frustrated yet glad,
