Has anyone been offered any sort of surgery for their Tinnitus??
I have a six monthly appointment with a consultant, My first words are
always ""any cure yet?"" and her first words are always "not yet ""
This has now been the situation for over four VERY long years
I have come to a mental and physical state of screaming,with
frustration,with the 24/7 noise.
I had to resort to a low dose sleeping tablet, to get me to fall asleep,
which is O.K up to a point ,but I usually wake at 2 or 3 in the morning
and stay awake because of the ringing
My G.P who obviously has NO concept of lack of sleep, has decided to
stop the sleeper, and my sleep is reduced to "cat Naps " during the day
The reason for the stoppage was ,that "they" were addictive, hardly
likely to become addicted to something that doesn't work .
What wouldn't I give for an 8 hour sleep
I had heard that there was a surgical procedure that could be done,
maybe it's just for people with a damaged inner ear, and not for the
brain damaged amongst us
PLEASE don't suggest singing pillows to send me off to sleep'
I just need an understanding caring, kind G.P who recognises that
lack of sleep just makes Tinnitus worse .
