Hearing is a complex sense involving both the ear's ability to detect sounds and the brain's ability to interpret those sounds and assign meaning to them.
Your ear contains three main parts: outer ear, middle ear, and inner ear.
Outer ear: The outer ear consists of the ear canal and the ear drum. Sound waves pass through the ear canal and strike the eardrum, causing it to vibrate.
Middle ear: The middle ear is an air-filled cavity behind the eardrum which contains three small bones of hearing called the ossicles. The ossicles attach to the eardrum at one end and to a small opening in the inner ear at the opposite end. When the eardrum vibrates, it causes the ossicles to also vibrate which pushes the sound towards the inner ear.
After several days of more intense symptoms, I started using the device more regularly (including to help going back to sleep in the middle of the night) and I am very pleased to report that I woke this morning hardly noticing the symptoms at all.
Thank you for being so understanding and patient with me earlier. You're the first person I've spoken to who seems to have an understanding about the condition and not keep telling me, "I just need to live with it".
