  • Tonic Tensor Tympani Syndrome

    Hello, This is something I found out about recently and may be the cause of some of you with tinitus problems. Apparently not all GPs have heard of it. The tenor tympani muscle is a tiny muscle in the middle ear. It reacts to sudden loud noises called the startle reflex. It can be caused by high stress...

  • Balloon Sinuplasty

    I am convinced that my tinnitus is a result of hearing loss resulting from allergies and chronic congestion. Would be interested in anyone who has had balloon sinuplasty and results. Was it effective and worthwhile? What did it cost? Did your insurance cover the procedure? Thanks for any response.
