I have the same problem you do. Sometimes when I'm in a crowd I turn my hearing aids way down so I can understand the person I am talking to. So that explains it.

That explains what I had suspected, a hearing aid won't do me any good.

I wish a special hearing aid could pick up my ringing and use noise cancellation technology to cancel the ringing.

I have electronic ear protection for shooting range. I can hear people just fine and very little noise form shotgun.

Some states, Michigan for one, allow anyone to sell hearing aids, as long as they get a license from the state. Most people that do this are connected to a heating aid manufacture.
You will get much better help if you go to a true Audiologist.
I have gone to 2 different hearing aid sales places, and now I go to an Audiologist, who is more interested in what they can do to help me than sell hearing aids.

George,
I had the same symptoms and the same diagnosis several years ago from an ENT. I spent several years trying to find hearing aids that would cancel the ringing, and I finally gave up. So, I'm still looking for something that will help and hoping I never have another episode of the vomiting caused by vertigo. Once was enough.

George, the ringing isn't sound, so it can't be cancelled. Your brain is processing it as "sound" but it is similar to nerve damage where you feel phantom pain.

Go to your local Vetrans service office--Not the VA and apply for a service connected disability for the tinnitus. Almost automatic 10% and a little over a hundred dollars a month. They will have you go to a hearing test again not the VA and you might qualify for more. I did and have 50% hearing loss in both ears and 10% tinnitus (ring in my ears) caused by loud noise when in the Army. I didn't know about it and most vets don't. It's a benefit that they don't tell about. Keith

George, my wife was diagnosed by her ENT with meniere's disease. It causes dizziness and spinning. she has to sleep on her left side. At least once a year she has to go in and get a treatment where they lie her on a table with her head back and manipulate it to get the crystals back where they belong in the inner ear. When she gets a flair up, she cant get out of bed. Her hearing is not affected by it though.
Good luck with it.

A few comments ..
- I've had tinnitus for maybe ten years. Early on it bugged the @#$% out of me. But I've learned to mostly ignore it. Some people cannot ignore it and/or their's is worse than mine. Some people report good results with 'Lipoflavonoid' .. an herbal mix. I've not tried it.
- As another pointed out, there is a simple physical move that will, in some people, reposition the crystals in the inner ear and help with the dizziness. Worth a try. My daughter has had this a few times and the maneuver helped her big time.
- If interested in hearing aids, if you have a nearby Costco, go there for a free hearing test and try a variety of hearing aids on the spot. They have a Kirkland (Costco house brand) at about $1700 for two that have the features and quality of aids that cost two or more times that from other suppliers. They also have a multi-month time for you to evaluate and get used to the aids. You get your money back if you are not satisfied.
Good luck!
Gary
