    Sorry no caps too tough on smartphone

    Hi Roz - re the alcohol/vinegar solution, a few drops in the ear as you would put in ear drops from the doctor? Thanks!

    @djrick Hello there. Yes I did it many times I was a swimmer. Hundred laps per day. I learned (Google) that skin divers to pass their final exam have to do a very, very deep dive 300 ft and they all talked about putting in their ears afterwards 50/50 solution of distilled white vinegar and rubbing alcohol/isoprop.
    So I got a little dropper bottle and a bag of those cotton puffs tilt head; 3 drops in each ear; stuff the cotton Puffs quickly in. Leave there for 20 minutes. When you pull the cotton out 20 minutes later everything just drains out and it's all clear again. Mixture lasted 2 months no need to remix ea time. Hth

    OK I tried the sound plus ear stimulation this morning and the ringing was quite loud probably because I didn't sleep well. I used a 1kz (1000hz) tone. It did not stop the ringing however as I sit here it seems like the ringing is of a lower tone than before. One site I visited said 2 weeks of treatment was needed to have results so its too soon to expect much. I will report back after either 2 weeks or when good results are noted.

    Yes I think medication can amplify the symptoms for sure pretty much documented on that.
    Sometimes they say one can get it because of being around loud noise a lot.
    Or maybe an injury they also say.
    I think it is tiring to have and it must just be accepted as something that is normal for you becuse I have not seen that it can be “cured” but maybe just made more easy to deal with.

    Well, I can't really recommend the sound plus ear stimulation for tinnitus, it may work, I only used it for about a week. I may not have used the right sounds and they say at least 2 weeks for results but I decided to stop the ear stimulation part because I had been using it for a month and no place I've looked said use it every day forever. Your body may get used to it and not respond anymore, I don't know

    However I've seen many studies and doctors who recommended using various sounds to reduce the ringing. The tones by themselves may do the trick eventually. They say tones above and below what you hear. I was only using 1000 to about 1300 hz tones. I will experiment with higher frequencies.

    Pete I saw this article on the Mayo Clinic website. It's interesting to say the least.

    Copied/pasted.

    Tinnitus

    Your doctor will examine your ears, head and neck to look for possible causes of tinnitus. Tests include:

    Hearing (audiological) exam. As part of the test, you'll sit in a soundproof room wearing earphones through which will be played specific sounds into one ear at a time. You'll indicate when you can hear the sound, and your results are compared with results considered normal for your age. This can help rule out or identify possible causes of tinnitus.
    Movement. Your doctor may ask you to move your eyes, clench your jaw, or move your neck, arms and legs. If your tinnitus changes or worsens, it may help identify an underlying disorder that needs treatment.
    Imaging tests. Depending on the suspected cause of your tinnitus, you may need imaging tests such as CT or MRI scans.
    The sounds you hear can help your doctor identify a possible underlying cause.

    Clicking. Muscle contractions in and around your ear can cause sharp clicking sounds that you hear in bursts. They may last from several seconds to a few minutes.
    Rushing or humming. These sound fluctuations are usually vascular in origin, and you may notice them when you exercise or change positions, such as when you lie down or stand up.
    Heartbeat. Blood vessel problems, such as high blood pressure, an aneurysm or a tumor, and blockage of the ear canal or eustachian tube can amplify the sound of your heartbeat in your ears (pulsatile tinnitus).
    Low-pitched ringing. Conditions that can cause low-pitched ringing in one ear include Meniere's disease. Tinnitus may become very loud before an attack of vertigo — a sense that you or your surroundings are spinning or moving.
    High-pitched ringing. Exposure to a very loud noise or a blow to the ear can cause a high-pitched ringing or buzzing that usually goes away after a few hours. However, if there's hearing loss as well, tinnitus may be permanent. Long-term noise exposure, age-related hearing loss or medications can cause a continuous, high-pitched ringing in both ears. Acoustic neuroma can cause continuous, high-pitched ringing in one ear.
    Other sounds. Stiff inner ear bones (otosclerosis) can cause low-pitched tinnitus that may be continuous or may come and go. Earwax, foreign bodies or hairs in the ear canal can rub against the eardrum, causing a variety of sounds.
    In many cases, the cause of tinnitus is never found. Your doctor can discuss with you steps you can take to reduce the severity of your tinnitus or to help you cope better with the noise.

    I've been trying out the sound treatment. I had some luck with 8000 hz, lower tones didn't do anything but with that after I take off the headset the ringing sounds less. Also it seems to make it a lower tone possibly. But next day its back about the same maybe a little better. The idea is that some of your brain cells started vibrating in a certain way and surrounding cells copied it causing a ringing sound. If you use a tone close to the one you hear but not exactly the same it may cause them to quit the old ringing. Or at least that is the theory, next year they may say that is all wrong and try something else, lol. I will keep trying it to see if there is any permanent improvement. They have all sorts of sounds on you tube

    I recently came across a research study in my area that is using ketamine, MRI's and extensive testing for it.

    Upside is it's free.

    Downside............the ketamine. I have read conflicting articles in the treatment.

    I REALLY do not want to put anything in my system now, so anyone have any information or feedback on it??

    @petenyc - Sorry to hear about the tinnitus, I hope you find something that lessens the pain. Strange but ketamine seems to be a possible cure for several things these days. I recently talked to a Dr. about my depression and he said they are testing ketamine infusions to lessen the severity of depression. I would love to try it but haven't looked into the possibility. Anyway, best of luck.

    Ive read/ heard several anecdotal reports of a succulent from south africa called "kanna" relieving peoples tinnitus. Its a legal drug thats pyschoactive but very mild if not placebo-like in my experience. But i dont have tinnitus.
    It also works as a mild SSRI and is said to be a potentiator of THC. Its said that it takes priming to achieve the ssri benefits (taking it for a week), but from what I can tell the tinnitus relief people boast of is immediate.
    I only know about it because I ended up with 100 grams of it from my usual kratom vendor for cheap.
    Also supposedly has a "reverse tolerance" effect where you only become more sensitive to it.
    It has yet to do anything for me. I tried priming. Maybe its because i only ever take it sublingually... all the glowing reviews are from people insufflating it. They report near molly like effects, drastically different from my experience.
    You know, maybe i will give it another go if i have it with me in my bag. Could be my doses are too low (300-900mg).
    Anyway, might be worth trying if your tinnitus is really bad. So far one pharma company is picking it up to market as an antidepressant. Its been used by the indegenous south africans since prehistoric times, so theyre a little late it seems.
