Neighbor Problem/landlord Complacency

I live in a single occupancy building consisting of four apartments.  I moved in here in December.  There is an individual living next door to me that I refer to as TV man because he has a giant plasma television and he cranks the volumn up so loud that my place is like an IMAX theater! The walls shake and the windows rattle and it's like this HOUR after HOUR after HOUR!!!  I've complained to the landlords about it 11 times now. ELEVEN!!!  Around the third time that I complained they told me that the man was deaf and therefore HAD to have his volumn that loud and sonce he was in his early 60's I decided to try and problem solve and I moved my things around to try and get away from the noise which proved impossible. I began to notice that he turned it up louder whenever I came in and that he would turn it up louder at night between 730 and 815pm. I realized then that his intent was malicious. The person living here before me had moved out after 7 months!  I see why.  I called the landlord and told them about my suspicions and they pretty much said that I was paranoid and that I would have to deal with the noise. I have systemic lupus and I NEED to get sufficient sleep. I started getting constant headaches and I lost my appetite and began losing weight. I didn't complain again for about 2 weeks and then it got to the point to where I was having chest pains so I called in another coplaint. Nothing was done. This last time however I told them that he was killing me literally and they did make an effort not to tell him to comply with the lease agreement and keep his volumn down but to make me accomodate him which is absolutely ridiculous!  They even suggested that I MOVE!!! I'm NOT the person causing the problem. I AM NOT the person violating the lease agreement. But I'M the one who has to go through the expense and trouble of moving again when I'd been here less than two months!!! Naturally I had to question the race issue at this time because otherwise it made no reasonable sense!  This last time that I complained I asked the woman if they had to yell at the man when they talked to him and she said no and I said if you can talk to him in a regular tone of voice and he hears you just fine why does he need to play his volumn that loud and if he's deaf why doesn't he have a hearing aide? I know for a fact that he can get one through medicare/medicaid.  I told her again that this person had malicious intent and that he was trying to force me to move and that is why he's intimidating me with his actions and they are LETTING him do it and I told her that if I moved he would win and I wouldn't let that happen. She said she would discuss this revelation with her husband. He's causing the problem so he should be the one to leave. He's breaking his lease agreement so he should be the one to leave.  I should probably get a lawyer and file a discrimination suit and sue for punative damages and pain and suffering. TV man has his volumn cranked up again and I just called the landlord to ask what happened with the question that I asked about his not needing a hearing aide to hear regular conversation but claims to be so deaf that he has to blow the paint off my walls with his tv volumn and she told me that she hadn't talked it over with her husband yet! This has been an overnight, all morning and afternoon thing and it hasn't been discussed yet?  Meantime I'm forced to hear that booming bass and I can already feel another headache coming on!  I think I'll talk to a lawyer after all just to see where I stand.
