PostSubject: Wtfing with ear problems...   Sun Jul 15, 2007 12:55 am

I got this medicine, Carbamazepine for my ear crackling and tinnitus. I do experience less intense tinnitus and perhaps less ear crackling.

But there is a catch.

I started to notice that music I hear sounded strange. I perceive it at a lower pitch. At first I thought it was my computer or my sound card malfunctioning. I restarted. I noticed the beep you hear when you turn on your computer has also changed to a lower pitch. I logged in, checked the background processes, equalizer, when my cellphone rang. It had a lowered pitch too. Then it hit me. IT'S MY EARS.

After researching about the side effects of the meds, I learn that I now have to bear with an auditory problem which is a pitch shift, which means I hear musical notes about a semitone lower than it actually is. Apparently there are few cases of this as most people don't seem to notice it and that only musicians and people with absolute pitch would be very bothered about it.

The problem now is I do notice it and it is taking the fun out of listening to music.

Wtfness.

It sounds bad.

If i were you, i'd jump down from a building.

No, you shouldn't jump Neutral

Chill bro, you don't need to take the medicine forever, right?

I was able to cope with it by shifting the pitch of music I listen up by one semitone and it sounded ok again lol

I'm off the meds now, and my hearing is gradually returning to normal (thank God) and I check it by playing that sound your computer makes when you plug in a usb device, it seems that I know that sound well enough to be able to tell if it is distorted by a pitch shift.

Next time I'll research the meds first before I pop them.

Thanks for the concern guys I really appreciate it!

That sucks. But it's usually normal for DJs to get this problem...

I hope it's nothing bad.
