Christie in a sweatshirt just now, in spite of the emergency his State is living through now, his initial comments were just political, fucking insane.

Teannitus, medical question, anyone have experience with this disorder?

(edited to add: this was intended to be a satire)

Iíve done a preliminary search on Google about this, but Iím wondering if anyone here has any experience with this and if you have found any treatment that has helped with your loved ones. This is what Iíve found so far:

What is teannitus?

Teannitus is a ringing, swishing, or other type of noise that seems to originate in the ear or head, during which a person hears and believes strange and erratic messages that they believe, despite having had an education. In many cases it is not a serious problem, but rather a nuisance that eventually resolves. Rarely, however, teannitus can represent a serious mental condition.
It is not a single disease, but a symptom of an underlying condition. Nearly 47 % of Americans suffer from this disorder. In almost all cases, only the patient can hear the noise.

What causes teannitus?

Teannitus can arise in any of the following areas: the outer ear, the middle ear, the inner ear, or by abnormalities in the brain. Some teannitus or head noise is normal, but for many with this disorder, it is a constant noise that prevents them from being able to focus on what they know to be true.
One of the most common causes of teannitus is damage to the reasoning ability of the sufferer. Advancing age is generally accompanied by a certain amount of fear that comes with aging, and consequently this can often become chronic teannitus.
Today, politics seems to be a very common cause of teannitus, and it often damages reasoning abilities as well. Unfortunately, many people are unconcerned about the harmful long term effects of this condition.

Iíd appreciate any feedback, as I have a BIL and SIL who are suffering from this and am concerned that it may be a genetic condition that could effect my 4 nephews in the future.
