I noticed almost instantly hearing things that I didn't hear before.  When I asked the doctor about this he explained to me that my earring didn't get better it is simply a fact that I pay more attention to my hearing. Now three years later I feel like I hear a lot better. So I wonder, is it rewiring, or just pay more attention. I would love some feedback from others.
