    Other than mine is getting worse and can't / shouldn't be ignored much longer, I know next to nothing about it.

    I'm wondering what "treatment" other shooters are using to mitigate the problem.

    There is no treatment! Saying what often is how you deal with it!

    We have a pill for that!

    I had to look it up since I am not familiar with that term. First thing that popped up was an ad for a pill. It will probably kill your liver, make you bleed from the anus, and have so many other side effects that the ringing in your ears will be the least of your problems. I don't know if that is really a treatment though.

    Hope somebody can help with it. It doesn't look good though.

    Been living with it for quite some time.
    At last test was told I have 40% hearing loss in one ear.


    I stay out of indoor ranges where rifles are being fired is the only thing I do differently, don't know much else that can be done.

    mine is not too bad except for times when I am in a total silent environment.
    I shot a snake this summer with my wife's 380 with no ears on and it just about killed me. For 30 days it was really bad.

    now when I shoot, I use foam plugs over electronic muffs and that helps a bunch.

    I've had it for some time, years in fact. I don't really notice it until someone mentions the word, or mentions ringing in the ears. Then suddenly it seems very loud. Thanks for bringing it up. :)
