Potential Relief for Tinnitus Sufferers


Recommended Posts

Each person heard a rapidly changing series of pure tones at different frequencies, against a background noise that sounds “kind of like electronic music,” Lim says.

Further testing in guinea pigs revealed the best body parts to stimulate to shut off tinnitus, Lim says. He and colleagues tested the ears, neck, limbs, and “you know … other places,” he says, eventually concluding the tongue was the best target.

Guess you can try...

I once thought this. I really believed it then.

But guess what? Haven't really suffered from tinnitus in approximately a year. Healing is possible.

You can just tell that the lady in that picture got it from years of rinsing Pulse Demon.

Thanks mcbpete!! It seems there are a number of other tinnitus-related uploads (including on his page), but unlike other T-related sound things on youtube I thought this one was also just cool as a great piece of ambient music. 🙂

What sort of treatment did you have? Or did it just subside by itself over time?

@IDEM great! And wow - really like that Voices from the Lake piece also. Like the Robert Logan one I shared above, even though it's ambient/droney it has those high-frequency sounds that keep T okay (for some reason.) Some ambient music is just deep drones, which would be fine without T but with T going on they aren't so enjoyable. Great atmosphere - thanks for sharing.  

Did you guys manage to start enjoying music again with the tinnitus? And what caused it? A loud rave or gig (or few?)

Mine came out of nowhere slowly in February - I've always been mindful of not listening to anything too loud and I've worn music ear plugs for live events for the last few years. It came after a long period of recovering from a flu-like cold that lasted just before Christmas till the end of January - I'm totally wondering if I somehow got the whole CV-19 back then and this was the weird side effect from it. Still awaiting a proper ear examination.

I'd chalk it up to two things:

1. I realized that I was grinding my teeth at night, and started wearing a mouthguard and curbing my caffeine intake. It turns out that the grinding was responsible for much of the tinnitus. I might have solved the problem sooner if I hadn't solely focused on loud-music-listening as the culprit. 

2. More generally, yes, I've found that it subsides on its own once I stop worrying about it. Giving it attention seems to "feed it" somehow.

There's a specific reason for that.  I have had constant tinnitus for about four years now and have found that it's much less intense now that I've accepted it as a part of my life.  It gets worse around allergy season, when I'm sleep deprived, or when I'm in a bad state psychologically.
