The first time I took a blood pressure pill, I experienced ringing in both of my ears, within 12 hours. I have had it ever since. I hope one day I wake up and it's gone.

I was taking TB medications with streptomycin injection and I ended up hearing noise from both of my ears, since December 2012. Now the noise has grown too and I can't hear any more.
