    Hi, I can understand your pain with so much issues, but don't give up that will make more miserable life. I have so many problems including Pulsatile & Tinnitus and that some time make me think that it is worthless life. But it will time come when we will deffinently get some  solutions. So many other people on the streets  are more miserable than we are. Please just pray to God and he will help us one day. Take care. Paul

    There is always the risk of this not working and so I feel tentative because of your extreme frustration. But I want to suggest two things. Firstly this is going back to human biophysiology. Myoclonus is muscle spasms and nutrients that relate very directly to muscle contraction and relaxation are calcium to contract and magnesium to relax them. As you are certainly getting contractions you may well be short of magnesium and this is a mineral often low or deficient. Please let me suggest initially getting magnesium supplements to take only as bottle suggests for a week or so and if improvement occurs to hold off abd then take a multi-mineral supplement for two weeks or so after that. Please be patient for the times involved. Just to note, if you eat cheese or drink milk or better still eat green veg, then calcium is not a problem. Magnesium by contrast even when in the diet is usually low. Further that clearly you are extremely stressed and that means magnesium will be lost from your body as waste. Stress does this. So again I say please give this a shot. First for a week or so magnesium then a multi mineral which will contain a range.

    On the tinnitus, we all know the problem of finding an out and out answer which illudes us as yet. However. What DO we know? We do know stress worsens tinnitus. We do know often 'distraction' often can lessen its effects. I get occasionally, my wife has it near permanently. So, I know there are already several trials going on which experiment with 'white noise' and/or distractive sounds even to put on headphones to play these tones before sleeping or even during sleep. Please google white noise therapy or tinnitus nouse therapy or similar to pick up on that because there may be an app which gives different noises to play. Im saying this because I read about a trial which had some success in giving tones into the ears that were similar to the different sounds of tinnitus people get. I believe there is merit in thid distraction method which teaches the brain to ignore the tinnitis reducing it, sometimes very effectively. My wife suffers her tinnitus very minimally while she is physically working, but is at its worst by far when she is sat quietly, and my wife stresses easily when sat quietly thinking about problems when so most at stress. I have studied nutrition for fully seventedn years, ongoing. I am not a doctor but you can rest assured everything I am saying here is with a serious consideration of your health and wish you very well in the near future. Chris Wiseman

      Agree on the white noise, I've experimented with dozens of sounds and the one that works best for me is called VIOLET NOISE, found in an app called WHITE NOISE.

      Great. I really hope you can get somewhere with that. Hope also you'll give the magnesium supplements a shot too followed a week or so later by multi-mineral for a while after that. There is more, but dependent on how the short burst works for you. :-)
