Thank you llg, for responding, I feel so much better. My tinnitus is new, only had it for 2 months in my right ear so far. Also I have pulsatile tinnitus. ITs annoying whooshing sound and sometimes a sound of a heart beat. The morning I don't hear it which is weird because I heard that tinnitus is worse in the mornings. I have done an MRI and went to the ENT , everything is fine and they didn't find anything. I just hope this doesn't affect me in studying and being in nursing school. Nursing school is already stressful, on top of tinnitus it will be more difficult. I hope I can still be a nurse. Did you have any difficulty with the stethoscope? I can still hear , i have no problems with my hearing just this darn sound. I am scared it will affect my ability to hear the heart & lung sounds. What kind of stethoscope do you prefer for a nurse with tinnitus? I feel happy that I am not the only one dealing with this. Also is it hard working in the hospital as a nurse with tinnitus? It's just so hard in the beginning you can't take your mind off it, maybe with time I will get distracted from the sound especially when you are a nurse ,you have so many tasks and always busy. I hope I can get through this, I really want to be a nurse and I don't want this to get in the way of my career and studying.
