I now soon tinnitus will will totally dominate any hearing left ... just to add to it I was overactive with thyroid and now thyroid  underactive . Doctors say there is no connection with thyroids or antibodies and hearing ??

    have you tried Ativan?  Ativan is a sedative that, among other things, calms the inner ear and will reduce tinnitus.  There are many sedatives out there but Ativan (lorazapan) is what most ENT doctors prescribe for unbearable tinnitus.  Good luck.
