Good stuff from http://hms.harvard.edu/news/hearing-restored-after-noise-damage-1-9-13
Sitting on train doing my tinnitus meditation. Heard conductor on speaker. I opened my eyes and realize my tinnitus was almost completely gone. I could not hear it. Looked around. Like wow. So this is what it is like. Someone looked at me as I must have had a strange expression on my face. Now. It is very low. My stop is next. I will cure myself.
This morning I woke up and my tinnitus was low. Hmmmm.
This has happened before.
What causes reduced stimulation in the brain where the tinnitus is occurring that may be contributing to the lower volume?
Something is going on. No kidding? Yes no kidding.
I am reading about studies addressing potassium channels. For me it is important to understand the mechanism. I am going to investigate this further with care. Never surrender. I will cure my tinnitus.
When I watch TV I find that it is sometimes easier to hear when I cover my ears. Background noise even subtle makes hearing the speech range more difficult.
