Deaf people can have tinnitus

Weirdest dreams I've ever had are where I could use both my arms (nerve damage at birth, never been able to use my right arm), I can't imagine how bizarre seeing in a dream would be as a blind person. :o
Woah... you can’t use your arms? Do you have hand function?

But I can understand having tinnitus. Fluid in the inner ear can cause that. So, deaf or not, I guess I can see them experiencing that annoying ringing.

Right arm, not arms. And I had a few surgeries when I was a kid and I can open/close the fingers of my right hand a little as a result but that's about it. Useful to help hold stuff.
Fuck man. I’m sorry to hear that. I know it’s been your whole life so it’s all you know but I can imagine that it can still get frustrating.

Not sure if that would be better or complete and utter silence. :dunno:
Just learned this today and read about it. Also spoke to my mom who teaches ASL and she said it’s worse because they [deaf people] have no way to mask the sound.

the other day i woke up to my phone ringing and i tried to answer it but my arm was not responsive at all. i must've slept on it or something and i was trying with all my might to lift my finger to swipe my phone to answer the call and i just couldn't do it. i then waggled it and punched it until the feeling came back :rofl:
