This is a posting I made on a forum. I have had tinnitus for about 7 years now. I also have increased hearing loss. I am not sure what caused my tinnitus…the doctor said it was caused most likely by exposure many years ago when I was in the service. I had one experience where… Read More »
I notice that sometimes I can hear the beep of the microwave clearly and at other times it is muffled. I find this very interesting. What is causing me to be able to be able to hear high frequency sounds better or worse? What makes my tinnitus more pronounced and at other times less? I… Read More »
This morning I put my water in the microwave for 55 seconds and I was across the room when I heard the microwave beep sound. I was surprised. This morning I did notice that the ringing noise seemed a little lower. So what have I been doing differently? Well as I mentioned I started to… Read More »
I am noticing some difference in the ringing now that I am consistently taking 3 g per day. I have not noticed hearing improvement though. The ringing has not stopped but seems to be changing. Gets low in one ear etc. Not much else to say right now. I am going to stay in 3G… Read More »
I have read studies about taurine testing in mice or rats. The dose that seemed to have an affect seems high. I believe it was about 290mg per kg. That seems high to me based on my weight. I am going to try 1.5 mg twice per day. I also read though the lower levels… Read More »
I am taking 1 g of taurine per day. No real new noticeable effects. I am going to up it to 2g consistently. I read that 12% of people notice benefits at doses between 700 mg and 3 g or something like that. On another note, I also noticed hair growth on my forehead below… Read More »
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.
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.
Still noisy. But I think my general hearing had improved. I notice if I cover my ears I hear voices better. I think it is because it reduces the background noise.
I am onto something big. I am developing a technique of meditation that is I believe helping my tinnitus and overall hearing. I also take Taurine and continue with ALA and Gingko Biloba although I do not think pthe latter two are helping my tinnitus at this stage. I take ALA mainly for glucose management.… Read More »
I have been reading about this magnet therapy. I found a recent article indicating it may not work. For me, I am not going down this path. Seems to random. I prefer to harness my own brain to stabilize itself vs jolts of magnetism to jar something loose. http://mobile.reuters.com/article/idUSBRE93L14120130422?irpc=932
If my tinnitus was some made up noise due to the lack of stimulating from hearing loss, I doubt the pattern and level of ringing I hear would vary. Also, I have to give more credit to my brain. It is not stupid. What I mean is the body knows when something does not make… Read More »
There may be some relationship between hearing loss and arrhythmia. Another clue into the relationship and complexity of the human http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/0002914967904675
I notice the noise on each side is different. I can tell. I am trying to figure out where I am sensing this noise. Unlike regular sound which is biaural this ringing is distinctly different in each ear. Also unlike sounds I hear from the environment which you can locate and know are from the… Read More »
This is a video about tinnitus and how it affects our veterans, the causes, the research and how people cope. Much of what is in this video is similar to what I believe is going on and how I manage my own tinnitus journey. I am also a veteran and I will never give up… Read More »
I have read theories that tinnitus is phantom noise. The noise is theorized by some to come from the brain replacing frequencies of sound that cannot be heard due to damage to the inner ear. Comparisons used include people who have lost a limb and have phantom feelings or pain from the missing limbs. I… Read More »
Yesterday, the ringing was fairly noticeable. After I my workout I noticed that the ringing seemed louder than usual. It was not however distracting. I focused on it a few times and as I went to bad I relaxed and focused on it as I lay down. This morning the ringing seemed to be much… Read More »
I have my own theories of what is causing the ringing. When I listen to the ringing I noticed that it changes frequency and it’s not a constant noise. The more you listen to it the more it sounds like almost like electricity. What I notice when I meditate and focus on the noise sometimes… Read More »
