Hi,
I was just wondering if anyone could provide any information on audio sclerosis. The women on my father's side have a history of this, and I have been having trouble with my ears allmy life, which seem to be worsening lately, with a possibility of hearning loss (symptoms: feeling of pressure in the ears, irritation on the skin, weeping, constant ringing). I would like more information on this particular disorder so that I feel more prepared before the next time I go to see the doctor-and to calm my nerves a little bit! As a fulltime musician and student my hearing is very important to me, and if I am exagerrating the situation I would like to stop that RIGHT NOW. I am feeling quite scared about the whole thing, to be honnest. Does anyone have any information?
