    KB---about half of the time hearing aids increase the ear noise. Every 2 years, I ask if there's a way to reduce tinnitus. They keep saying -NO-- It's hard to think about---

      Whoa! not good; all I can hear is high pitch whirring. Hearing aids are so expensive, why’d my audiologist tell me one would help the tinnitus? Thanks for the info, meyati.

      Back in the late 80s, the jerks severed something in the ear that left that ear completely deaf, but people still heard the high pitched whirring, frying, buzzing, and/or ringing. They didn't do anything about it, until that happened to a bunch of Air Force officers' wives.

      meyati, hope your scan is good. The doc I saw yesterday said my dermatitis might be my cancer manifesting so is sending me to dermatologist. What next?

      @Dawson----I worry about my family handling this regulation and Pres translation of the reg, if I'm down. Honestly, I went in for my annual thyroid scan. The lab says that it's impossible but they had to have crossed my files with somebody else. It started that I needed to fast-and my doctor keeps swearing that she doesn't list me fasting. My Dr has even put it in writing. Then the tests that the hematologist ordered were put under my PCP's name. Meaning my doctor that ordered those would not get the lab results. I got hold of my primary care- about fasting and if she had asked for any of those tests. Meanwhile the lab tech started gossiping about me right in front of me. I didn't file with the FEDS, but I made calls to administration and those got fired. I wouldn't get any blood drawn until they'd tell me who the ordering doctor is. Well my hematologist and primary care had fits with the lab. I had some tests that nobody ordered.

      I really hate this new fed reg about not sharing lab results. In reality it means that I'm also getting the same test over and over. Ouch--

      @ KB I'll find out for sure what my scan says on Thurs, unless they post it before the visit. I will see my radiologist on Thursday.

      Because I had skin cancer, my dermatologist told me they now have chemo creams for cancer on the skin. My radiologist said those are bad because they drive the cancer down. Since then, I read a report last year the creams do take care of the cancer, work good. I also know they have chemo pills too for some skin cancers. I worry about the initial biopsy, because it would take the upper and lower lip off..

      My ENT told me that my cancer returns as "granular". I don't know if that means the skin or the flesh under the skin. My skin is becoming like sand paper. Oct 9, I see my dermatologist---Oct 10, I see my ENT. This Thurs radiologist.

      So far, 3 doctors think that it could be cancer. One that it was an allergy, and another one that thinks it is a bacteria skin infection that's around the mouth-it swells the lips up too.

      Meanwhile, pass the Benadryl.

      Hang in there--our time will come to get answers. I hope that you don't have anything bad.
