Shriek.

My tinnitus has been clobbering me all day.  It’s so bad I don’t even care if society collapses tonight.  But if you guys can prevent it from happening ’til I’m back in the game, that would be great.

Will be back, God willing, when this endless whine abates a little bit.

Have a good night.

    You may want to look into gingko biloba, B-12, niacin and/or melatonin. As with so many herbals and vitamins, study results are mixed, so there’s no way to tell if any of it may help with your tinnitus. But each of these has shown some improvement in some study. You should check with your doctor, of course. Praying for you!

    The above herbal/nutrients Sue mentioned are a good start but I’ve heard some really promising things about using Pycnogenol (from the Maritime Pine), the in the clinicals thus far have been 200mg/day in divided doses. It’s not cheap, that does will run you close to $50-$60 a month but well worth it for the work.

        There are a couple of other things I know about too which have may also benefit. Especially if you want a multi-facet approach. There is a product called “Ring Stop” which has homeopathic and herbal remedies in it. However, to even begin seeing results you must take it faithfully for at least 90 days.

        Another interesting tidbit I heard about a while ago as a scuttle-butt in the industry was a product called Wobenzyme. It is a proteolytic enzyme blend from a company in Germany that has been made for generations, helps to lessen inflammation in the body, people use it for everything from arthritis, tendinitis even cancer. What proteolytic enzymes do is (when taken on an empty stomach) break out into the blood stream and digest fibrous tissue (such as scar tissue and fibroids) also they can digest plaque that has developed in certain parts of the body. There is a theory regarding tinnitus that possibly from years of loud noises (say music or machinery) or ear infections to protect itself from foreign invaders plaque develops on the capilaries in the ear that allows sound to travel to the cochlea rattle the bones and cause sound. If the capillaries misfire constantly from the plaque it can cause the constant ringing of the ears, hence tinnitus. If taken on an empty stomach (not with food or else they’re just an expensive digestive enzyme) proteolytic enzymes can potentially rid you of the problem of tinnitus. Again, this would take sevral months to start showing benefit but plausible nonetheless. I’d still try pycnogenol first, ot in conjunction.

        Oh and the only thing melatonin could possibly do for tinnitus would be help you to drift to sleep faster so that the ringing stops because, well you’re asleep, when your auditory channels cease anyway.

        Ok lesson for tonight over. 😉
