    Hey, I know it is tough and there's barely any treatment for it. Habituation is the only real "treatment" for it right now. You have to realize that there isn't really much to help us. I know for some people have said it has gone away after some time. But that's the only real cases I have seen to stop to the T. Now, not to get your hopes up, there is a forum which I will link that has info about a new upcoming device (keep in mind it probably is expensive, also is not out yet, and when it does it will be available in Ireland) that might show promise. There is one person who was a tester volunteer who tried it back in 2015 and it stopped her T completely. More details about the device and that person(you can ask her any questions in the forums if you do she has answered mine).

    Side Note: This is a good forum to talk about Tinnitus since everyone else has it and is pretty responsive.

    what meds are you currently taking? Some meds have tinnitus as a side effect. Do you have allergies? If so are your allergies under control? What are you taking for them? Have you been seen by an ENT doctor and have you had a hearing test?

    Some folks have success in reducing tinnitus by using Ativan (Lorazapam). This is a sedative that has properties that also calm the inner ear. In my case Ativan reduces tinnitus by 50% or so.

    Hi terrie I don't think there is a procedure anyware in this country to cure this awful condition because the NHS simply won't fund it as it apparently isn't life threatening, if only people had it for one day severely they would understand. I have virtually given up but some days it's better than others, but at its worse at night is torture, I had a basal skull fracture from an assault and have had this severely for 7 years now, who knows you may just wake up one day and they will find an affective treatment or cure. Don't give up hope.

    There is no cure.

    The noise is in your head.

    It's pretty much in most people's head - but for some, something happens (like a cold) which exacerbates the noise, and then we lock into it. All we can then hear is that damn noise. So now what?

    • Learn not to fear it.
    • Learn not to think about it.
    • Keep busy - and if you're at home, nothing to do, and you hear a loud noise - YouTube random videos to entertain you! 😃
    • Live your life

    I've had it for a year and I've learned to do all those things. Because I do not fear it, whenever I hear it its OK. It doesn't bother me, I know it will go - or more precisely, I know something else will take my mind and then it will not focus on the tinnitus.

    Best of luck
