Default Possible New Treatment

Is definitely a major distraction and constant annoyance either coming from the ears, and centered in the brain ...... somewhere, in there.

If I am able to peddle up this huge health hill of a problem right now, all things considered, coasting down the hill on the good side of a tinnitus relief cure will be a major blessing.

Have I seen a medical doctor ...... not yet ...... will I see one ..... I had better go see the doctor, very soon.

Anyone here have any experience, suggestions, or advice on this very serious health issue I am experiencing ....... tinnitus?

I am age 69 and generally in very excellent health, and look forward to living to age 99 ...... but for now, i need to get this interior brain/ear irritant noise cured! ......
FLL, I'm in the Professional Audio business and information of potentially promising research on a new tinnitus treatment being pioneered in at the University of Auckland came across my desk. When I read of it, I thought you and other tinnitus sufferers in this thread that might be interested. I know nothing specific about this work, so take the info for what it is. It may be of help to you though. Here is a link for you to review.


Good Luck

This is interesting in that link: "What this therapy does is essentially rewire the brain in a way that de-emphasizes the sound of the tinnitus to a background noise that has no meaning or relevance to the listener.

Here is the original study: https://www.frontiersin.org/articles...22.958730/full

Have you tried CBD W/turmeric? It worked wonders for me.

I've had tinnitus for approximately 10 years now. It may have gotten worse but so slowly it's hard to tell. I liken it to the sound of a fluorescent light ballast; high pitched buzzing. I can definitely understand how it can drive someone to distraction. During my annual hearing test this year, in the sound booth, with headphones on, I had a digital controller to allow me to change high-pitched signals to find a frequency that almost totally canceled the noise. It was quite amazing. Bose, of course, has used this tech for years, and Cadilac also. The hearing aids required are costly but if I reach a point of complete distraction I think that may be the way to go.
I'd rather be relax'n at Winnipesaukee

Here's an excellent link ..... http://www.jacksonvilleentsurgery.co...nnitus-curable ..... that describes tinnitus.

Suggest you google 'affliction tinnitus' to see a number of different sources with information on tinnitus.
