Not so good

I wish I could say my tinnitus is getting better every day. However, seems that my tinnitus is louder than usual. Well maybe not louder but it’s not going in the direction that I’d hoped. Interestingly though I think that my hearing is slightly improved. When I say my tinnitus seems worse what I mean… Read More »

Getting better? Never surrender

I will cure myself. This is my mantra. I state this not only as a fact but a direction, an attitude. Sometimes I feel like I am improving and then I start feeling like I am not. Those moments can make me think about just giving up and drifting. I mean just putting up with… Read More »

Sudden silence

Sometimes my tinnitus just suddenly stops for a millisecond. I wonder if when it stops if I can hear anything or not whether all sound stopped or just the ringing. It is so brief I can’t tell. I bet many of you are reading this experience the same thing.


This works for me, but this may not be for you or others. Please consult your medical doctor for their opinions. One thing that I realize is that meditating on the ringing in your head can help you really learn a lot about your tinnitus. As you sit there or lie down on your bed… Read More »

Where did this ringing come from?

From my research on tinnitus, I have not found anyone that has explained definitively what causes the ringing noise. There are many possible ideas but no certainty. Now, what is the cause for it starting from the first place. Again, mixed ideas. What I have read is it can be caused by Exposure to loud… Read More »
