  3. QUESTION:
    What is the cause of the ringing in my ears?
    I'm 15 years old. There has been ringing/cricket-ish noise in my ears for about a month already and i'm worried.
    I'm not sure what went wrong but i will list out some possible causes and you can help me see which one is more probable.

    1. Cochlear(ear cells) damage. REASON - i always listen to my ipod at low volumes well below to cause harm. However, i once accidentally blasted it at the max volume for about 5 secs. A day or so later, i started noticing the sound in my ears. It did not start immediately after the incident though. I heard that if it was cochlear damage, the sound would start immediately. Is this true?

    2. Sinus. REASON - Not sure about this but i have a mildly sensitive nose and suffer from blocked nose sometimes when i just get out of bed. It does not happen often though. The tinnitus also started around/before i got a cold. I have since recovered but the ringing is still there. I'm not really sure about this cause but i'll just list it out.

    3. Jaw disorder. REASON - When i clench my jaws/teeth together, the sound in my ears become sharper and higher pitched. When i press my palm against my forehead and resist with my head, the sound also seem to become a slightly higher pitch. Apparently, this matches the tests to check for tinnitus caused by jaw problems. My teeth/jaw is also not aligned. I have straight teeth but my jaw is like not directly on top of each other. As in my lower jaw is more to the left. I don't have an overbite though. My teeth are directly above each other. Just that my jaw is not aligned.

    4. My tinnitus is not cause by anything and i am just horribly unlucky and destined not to find a cure.

    OR you can suggest other more likely causes of my tinnitus.

    Also, i have been prescribed DUXARIL by my doc for a month. It's my second week now and no improvement. Is this normal? Should i just go see a specialist?
    It's been a month so i'm really worried that my tinnitus will be permanent. So please help me. A million thanks.

  4. QUESTION:
    what is cure for ringing in ear and what causes it?

    • ANSWER:
      It is called tinnitus and a wide variety of conditions and illnesses can lead to tinnitus. Blockages of the ear due to a buildup of wax, an ear infection,
      Certain drugs for example aspirin, several types of antibiotics and quinine medications -- can contribute to the condition as well.
      The natural process of aging can result in a deterioration of the cochlea or other parts of the ear and lead to tinnitus. Tinnitus is also associated with Meniere's disease
      Other medical conditions that can cause ringing in the ears include high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, anemia, allergies and an underactive thyroid gland. Tinnitus can also be a symptom of a problem in the neck or jaw, such as temporomandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome.
      But the most common source of long-lasting tinnitus is prolonged exposure to loud sounds.
      Many drugs have been studied for treating tinnitus. For some, treatment with anti-anxiety drugs such as valium or antidepressants such as Elavil help.
      If your tinnitus is accompanied by some hearing loss, a hearing aid may be helpful.
      This is a relaxation technique that helps people to manage stress by changing their reaction to it. Some people find it is helpful in reducing tinnitus.

  6. QUESTION:
    Is there a way to cure constant ringing in the ears (Tinnitus) ?
    I always had ear infections and problems with my ears as a child. For about 6 years I have had a CONSTANT ringing in my ears. It gets louder at night or when I'm sick and it drives me crazy and makes it very hard to concentrate/stay focused. I have been to my doctor, clinics and other doctors...basically I have learned it was probably caused by being exposed to smoke (my dad always smoked in the house when I was growing up, or being exposed to loud noise...I went to a few concerts before it started...but not many. My doctor kept prescribing me nasal spray but that never did anything. Another doctor told me there is nothing to be done about it and that it is an "inconvenience" I will have to live with forever. I have heard or seen adds for products or surgeries that can help but I don't know much about them. If anyone knows of any possible solutions, please help! Thank you!

    • ANSWER:
      There is no "cure" for tinnitus. The reason is that tinnitus is caused by hearing loss and the hearing loss that causes it is generally permanent (either from aging, noise, etc.). The brain can learn to ignore the tinnitus though, but that takes some work on your part to reduce your stress (like meditation) and sound therapy to help the brain not hear the ringing. Currently the best treatment for tinnitus is sound based therapies. The only web-based one, that is research based and personalized, is at beyondtinnitus.com.

      This company's system is based on research of two ear nose and throat doctors done at the University of California Irvine.

      Basically, they figure out your tinnitus pitch and loudness, etc. and give you a sound file that you can download for therapy that is specific to your tinnitus. The therapy sound can be mixed with your own music using their system and you can listen to your own music while the sound therapy file is working in the background.

      The alternative is therapy in the clinic with tinnitus retraining therapy or Neuromonics, but those will cost you ~00.

      Herbal remedies have not been shown to be effective in good clinical studies. Sound therapies have are effective 80-90% of time, whereas herbal remedies have only been found to be as effective as sugar pills. Ginkgo has been studied in large clinical trials and it wasn't found to be effective at all. My dad had bothersome tinnitus and he took Ginkgo and it didn't help. He tried the sound therapy and he can't hear the ringing. If he really thinks about it and listens for it, he hears it, but otherwise it's not noticeable and doesn't keep him up at night.

  8. QUESTION:
    Anyone know how to stop the ringing in my ears?
    My left ear rings off the hook all the time. been to the ear Dr. and he said I have tinnitus and there is no cure.It gets so loud at times I can't fall to sleep unless I turn the tv up for back ground noise. It's causing me to have panic attacks and anxiety.

    • ANSWER:
      Utilize masking noise. Tinnitus is usually more bothersome when the surroundings are quiet, especially when you are in bed. A competing sound such as a ticking clock, a radio, a fan or white noise machine may help mask tinnitus. Small hearing aid like devices which generate a competitive sound may help reduce the awareness of the tinnitus. You may combine such maskers along with herbal & homeopathic remedies.

      Valium, Xanax and Klonopin are benzodiazepine drugs that many doctors prescribe for tinnitus. These are conventional medications which achieve only limited success in tinnitus relief, and usually their bothersome side effects such as dry mouth, blurred vision, and constipation often discourage use.

      They are addicting to varying degrees and cannot be used continuously for a long period of time. They are helpful in reducing tinnitus symptoms and aid in sleeping. Valium is the most addicting of these and is not used often for this reason.

      Xanax is very popular and is prescribed often for tinnitus. However, the ATA (American Tinnitus Association) report on medications that cause tinnitus lists Xanax as causing it in 6.6% of cases.

      There is actually no cure for tinnitus with the conventional medicine. Actually, since last many years, the onus has been on the herbal industry to provide relief, if any, to tinnitus sufferers.

      Tinnitus is usually due to damage to the microscopic ends of the hearing nerve in the inner ear. Perfect hearing is possible only if these nerves remain healthy and any damage to these nerves results in tinnitus or hearing impairment.

      Some herbal remedies exist which can be used to support all body systems involved in helping the ear to perform its tasks of clear hearing and balance, as well as the circulatory, cardiovascular, and nervous systems.

      Some of the most common herbs & biochemic tissue salts used are
      • Ginkgo Biloba is excellent for a number of cerebral and circulatory disorders. It is probably the most widely-used herb for tinnitus and many sufferers swear by this natural ingredient.
      • Rosemary dilates and strengthens blood vessels and is an excellent circulation tonic. Rosemary is particularly useful for tinnitus that is caused or worsened by high blood pressure and other circulatory conditions.
      • Avena Sativa is effective in reducing high cholesterol levels which can contribute to circulatory problems which cause tinnitus.
      • Wild Hyssop s also useful in reducing pain and inflammation.
      • Salicylic Ac. (30C) is indicated for tinnitus with loud roaring or ringing sounds, which may be accompanied by deafness or vertigo. This remedy is particularly useful in people whose symptoms began with a bout of flu, Meniere’s disease or long-term use of aspirin.
      • Ferrum phosphoricum (Ferrum phos. D6) is a homeopathic biochemic tissue salt which supports the absorption of iron in the body. The protective myelin sheath which surrounds all nerve tissue needs iron to supply this vital nutrient to the nerve cells it encases. Regular use of Ferrum phos. can help to prevent dizziness, headaches and restlessness and is of great benefit for those who tend to feel irritable, tense and tired.
      • Magnesium phosphate (Mag. phos. D6) well-known as a homeopathic painkiller, Mag. phos. is also of great benefit to the health of the nerves. It acts as a natural anti-spasmodic and a nerve and muscle relaxant and is also frequently recommended for stress headaches.

      Hope all this helps

      Good Luck!

  9. QUESTION:
    Anyone have suggestions for reducing ringing in the ears?
    There are a number of causes for ringing in the ears. Mine happened immediately after I stood right next to a loud rock music speaker for 20 minutes (stupid). The ear doctor said I had some hearing loss and that the hairs in my inner ear vibrate by themselves causing the sound in my heard and that there is no cure. I have had this for 4 years in both ears. The sound is usually ringing with occasional buzzing and a whirring sound. There may be no cure, but certain things make it worse. I have researched it and they recommend having background noise to drown it out. That only makes it worse for me. I cannot listen to music, go to movies or sports games. The only thing that helps me is total silence and the sound of running water like in a sink or a shower. Any other suggestions?

    • ANSWER:
      Nothing will help you im afraid but this hopefully will be a temporary reaction to the noise with no lasting permanent damage.

    Thanks Adam you are so right I knew I had that wrong, just couldn't think of the right term (smile).

    • ANSWER:
      Well, ringing in the ears is called "tinnitus" (see link, below), and the product you saw advertised was Lipo-Flavanoids (see 2nd link, below), but I don't think it actually works (see 3rd link, below).

  11. QUESTION:
    Nonstop ringing in the ears?
    Hi, for the past couple months or so, I have been suffering nonstop ringing in the ears... It's really bugging me to death and it seems like it's getting louder. Could this be tinnitus (or however it's spelled)? I'm only 17... but if I do have it, then oh well. Is there any known cure for it? Or at least any treatments? Because I want to do something about it before it gets any worse.

    BTW, I have had ear problems ever since I was a baby, but that's different 'cause those were infections. But if you need to know, I have had ear tubes on three separate occasions. I am unsure if it's all related or not.

  12. QUESTION:
    how to cure tinnitus?
    A few months ago I went to a heavy Metal concert. My ears started ringing and I didn't think much of it, now it's becoming hard to cope with, and I am slowly going insane. I live a breathe music so this doesn't help much either.

    I have thyroid disease and type 1 Diabetes which I am sure have botch contributed to these factors. I read that I can't drink alcohol, coffee, tobacco, or even have salt products as they cause my ears to ring even more.... If I would have known about thyroid problems causing tinnitus I would have been more cautious in the first place, however we don't tend to think about these things until the damage is done.

    I am currently trying to get rid of tinnitus by taking Magnesium, Zinc, some natural herbs called "Glandex", and I've recently just tried to heat up olive oil with cotton balls.

    Is there ANYTHING at all, any program or healing methods that have been found to work for any users out there? I just feel rather skeptical with all of those paid for programs online. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Thyroid disease and diabetes don't contribute to tinnitus. Tinnitus largely boils down to one or both of:

      1. physical damage in the ear
      2. overactive neurons in the brain

      For the ear, there are hair cells called cilia in the inner ear, which convert sounds waves into electrical impulses. As the cilia wave back and forth in response to a sound stimulus, they release an electrical signal about the frequency, intensity, and duration of a sound to the brain. Loud sounds flatten the cilia, and it is believed that tinnitus arises when the hair cells touch each other, forming a short circuit so that they keep sending the electrical impulses. If you can stimulate the hair cells to stand upright again, the short circuit is broken and the noise stops.

      The other main cause is when neurons in the auditory processing centre in the brain keep firing, even when the electrical impulses telling them to fire have stopped. That's where the no caffeine etc comes in - anything that will further stimulate the brain can make it worse.

      I had tinnitus for 12 years, and I got rid of it using "Sound Therapy", a listening program you use at home, based on the work of ear specialist Dr Alfred Tomatis. It can take quite some time to work - in my case my tinnitus started improving after about 2 months, and had completely gone by 6 months - but it works on the root causes of the problem, so the result has been permanent. :) I ended up giving Sound Therapy a go because it does have research bedhind it, and is 1/10th the cost of programs like neuromonics.

  14. QUESTION:
    How can I cure my insomnia?
    I'm 18 and I've never really had insomnia until now, so I don't know how to deal with it.

    I was awake for nearly 35 hours, and then I went to sleep but woke up two hours later. After waking up from my two-hour sleep I couldn't get back to sleep again. I know I'm not as tired as I should be since I've basically been awake for two full days, with only a partial sleep.

    I'm not sure what is causing my insomnia, but I do have tinnitus and I'm thinking that might be a contributing factor. The ringing in my ears has caused me to wait longer and longer to get to sleep at night. Right now I feel like I'll be awake for many more hours, and I don't know how to get to sleep again - and stay asleep.

  16. QUESTION:
    Can i ever be cured? :( ?
    Here goes a LONG passage of info :
    I have experienced some slight ringing in my ears about 2-3 weeks ago. I went to the doctor after the first week. I told to doc about my ear as well as that i accidentally played my ipod at the max just before the ringing came about. I normally listen to it very softly so it shocked my ears. So, the doc gave me Duxaril to improve my blood circulation to promote my nerve cells to be repaired. He also looked into my ears but there was no further check and said it was only temporary. However, after 6 days (doc told me to take med for a week), there was no improvement.
    So i went to another doctor. I told him that i also have a sinus problem. He says it could be some blockage in my nerves and gave me med for blood circulation and also med for getting rid of my sinus. I told him i did not have a blocked nose but he still gave me med for sinus. However, i have been experiencing sinus problems(occasional sneezing/blocked nose etc in the mornings) for a very long time already. Why would the ringing only started so recently? Anyway, he also did look into my ears, said there was nothing wrong with them. So i took the med for 3 days. There was some improvement, whereby the sound no longer bugged me as much and i no longer pick it out so often. However, the sound can still be picked out in quiet environments(during sleep, tv on at a soft volume etc). I don't know if the med has improved my condition(meaning the cause of my ringing ears was the sinus problem) or if my brain is learning to tune it out better because it just seems better sometimes. Some other times, it seems like the same. But i'm too confused to actually confirm if it has improved. Also, i realised that if i clench my teeth together, the ringing becomes very high pitched. Is this serious and is the med working for me? The doc told me to take until it recovers but i'm down to my last day's worth of pills (until tomorrow) but my ears have not completely stopped ringing. Is it normal? Can i just ignore it? Or should i go to a specialist to find the root cause of my tinnitus? Help please. Thanks

    My doctor told me to take until i'm cured, not finish the whole pack. However, i already finished it without anymore improvement. As in after the first 1-2 days of the med, the sound no longer is so prominent. So i'm not sure if it is the med or that i have learnt to tune it out better.

    Also, will i have this all my live? How long will it take to go away? Should i ask for more of the same med or just let it heal naturally without med because i'm not even sure it's the right med for me...

    • ANSWER:
      http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/tinnitus/DS00365/DSECTION=treatments%2Dand%2Ddrugs

      They offer a long list of treatment options. The problem though is that your tinnitus was probably caused by your Ipod and medications haven't worked for you. This is what they had to say under causes:

      "Exposure to loud noise. Loud noises can damage your ability to hear. Heavy equipment, chain saws and firearms are common sources of noise-related hearing loss. Portable music devices, such as MP3 players or iPods, also can cause noise-related hearing loss if played loudly for long periods. While short-term exposure, such as attending a loud concert, usually causes tinnitus that goes away, long-term exposure to loud sound can cause permanent damage."

      I would give it another week or so and if things really haven't changed then get a referral to an Otolaryngologist. There may or may not be permanent damage. They can test your hearing in a sound booth and see if it will go away over time.

  17. QUESTION:
    What do you think of my plot and unfinished chapter?
    here's the unfinished plot:
    Ok there is this girl named Angel. She is a bully. one day this boy named Joseph shows up and Angel realizes something strange about him and whenever she is around him strange things happen. Then one day Angel comes home and finds her mother on the floor sick and dying. She is devastated and there is a knock on the door. She answers it to find Joseph. And he tells her that he can help her mother if she followed him into the woods. He says that there is the most wonderful place with medicine that can cure her mother. Angel goes and realizes it was a trap. The place that Joseph said was wonderful was horrible and she imprisoned and sentenced to death. She is imprisoned because her sister is there, the same sister that went missing years before because she was believed to have great powers. When they found that she was not wat they thought her to be they were going to kill her but the boy who had lured her there loved her and bargained with the evil king to take him instead of her. And so angel is there, she is imprisoned, her mother is dying, and Angel could soon be dead also. But at the end. Joseph gives his life for Angel's freedom. This is what I am going to put in the story for that. And there in the corner, Angel's only friend, the person she loved, dead.
    Here is the chapter
    Expecting to see a wonderful land full of riches, medicines, and love I took Joseph's shaking hand. The wind picked up around us. My dark, blond hair swirled around my face.
    For a second I thought that Joseph was just simply destroying all the things around us. Trees fell down with ear-splitting wails and animals scurried by, their cries echoing around us. I was scared. I tried to break free of Joseph's grip on my hand, but found I couldn't. I stared wide eyed at Joseph, who took no notice of me. Just when I thought a stream of sticky, salty tears would stream down my face, the wind stopped and I noticed with a jolt that Joseph had not destroyed everything. He had taken me to a different place, where everything lay dead on the ground, where darkness triumphed, and the night smelled of Death. It stung my nose and I could almost feel its claws dig deep into my arm, pulling me, taking me where my heart would beat no more and my eyes would not sparkle.
    I realized that I actually was being dragged. But the hands that clutched my arms were not the cold, clammy hands of Death but the warm, soft hands of Joseph. For some reason I felt safe with him, for the moment. I then realized that this was a trap. "Let go of me!" I struggled and kicked. But Joseph's grip on me only doubled.
    I could faintly make out a tall, old caslte. It's windows were dark and lifeless. Joseph dragged me along a narrow, twisting road. I looked up at the sky where no moon shone and then at my legs that were spilling blood on the road, my shoes were torn, and my head ached but none of that mattered just the castle that loomed ever so closer and Jospeh's now icy, cold hands.
    Joseph soon dropped my arm and my head thumped to the ground. My ears rang but I could faintly make out Joseph's angry voice. I looked up to see his wavy black hair as dark at the night, glistening as if some sun was shining. "What do you mean you can't let me in?" There was a pause and then a grunt and Joseph replied, "Do you know who I have here with me?" Another grunt. "I have...." But I didn't hear the rest. Becuause this time I was sure I felt Death's fingers crawling up my arms and the cold chuckle in my ears.
    Ok, so this chapter is unfinished and I still have to edit cause I wrote it real late last night. Please tell me if anything is wrong and comment!

    • ANSWER:
      I haven't read all of this word for word; just skimmed over it, because it's a bit young for me, and the logic/grammar of your plot doesn't really follow ("She is imprisoned because her sister is there" makes no sense, for example). But, on the writing...

      It's not bad. What your spelling (what, not wat), and repeating of words ("around us" twice and "around" another time in the first five lines or so). Check your grammar and don't use local phrases or phrases you'd use talking to friends that aren't recognised as good grammar elsewhere ("simply", not "just simply"). Don't describe things that are irrelevant --- the "sticky, salty" aspect of tears isn't really something you'd think about much, while being dragged off and having a forest crash down around you. Don't repeat names ("I tried to break free of Joseph's... I stared wide eyed at Joseph")... just use "stared wide-eyed at him" instead. Note the hyphen in there, too.

      Choose every word carefully. Words like "looked" suggest a casual, effortless, everyday action. The character is being dragged, and would have to struggle just to find the thing she wants to look at, never mind to focus and see the thing, so this sounds very unrealistic when I read it.

      OK, so that's about it, apart from spell-checking (please spell check!). But I don't want to put you off: it sounds like a lot of flaws when I point them out one after another like this, but really, they're minor things next to having a good idea for a story. If you think you've got that, then keep writing, and just work on your technique. Read more too -- preferably from well-respected writers, and maybe a bit older and more diverse than what you've been reading so far, if you can.

      Good attempt. Keep it up :)

However, the sound can still be picked out in quiet environments(during sleep, tv on at a soft volume etc). I don't know if the med has improved my condition(meaning the cause of my ringing ears was the sinus problem) or if my brain is learning to tune it out better. Also, i realised that if i clench my teeth together, the ringing becomes very high pitched. Is this serious and is the med working for me? The doc told me to take until it recovers but i'm down to my last day's worth of pills (until tomorrow) but my ears have not completely stopped ringing. Is it normal? Can i just ignore it? Or should i go to a specialist to find the root cause of my tinnitus? Help please. Thanks

    My doctor told me to take until i'm cured, not finish the whole pack. However, i already finished it without anymore improvement. As in after the first 1-2 days of the med, the sound no longer is so prominent. So i'm not sure if it is the med or that i have learnt to tune it out better.

    Also, will i have this all my live? How long will it take to go away? Should i ask for more of the same med or just let it heal naturally without med because i'm not even sure it's the right med for me...

    *10 pts to anyone who answers the most completely*
    I've just realised that my tinnitus could be caused by my bad posture. When i'm using the computer, i tend to slouch and rest my chin on my water bottle, causing my neck to be in an awkward position. Recently, i feel some tension/tightness/weird feeling at the front of my neck/the place connecting the jaw and neck. Could this be it? I've been doing this for around a couple of years. Is this what caused it? Can it be cured if i maintain a good posture? If so, how long will it take?
    Btw, i do not have any headaches.migraines. (:
    Make that like a pressure on my throat. Like someone is gently pressing my throat... Is this normal?

    • ANSWER:
      Medication will not help you, unless you eliminate the cause of your problems. The cause is: You are sensitive to your headphones. It is never too late, but you should never use them any more, as it could lead you to harming your hearing after a few years.
      Don't pay too much attention to that as it will go by itself if you don't repeat that loud music any more, but you should take some B complex supplements for 10 days, only once a day. it could take you 3-4 months to overcome these symptoms.

      What about your posture, yes it gives you the pressure on your throat, but posture usually is not the cause of the ringing in your ears.

    I have rining in left ear does any one have a cure for it.?
    I have bought pills from the GNC store but that does not help. I take asprein once a day and they say that causes it to ring. Driving me crazy..

    • ANSWER:
      I use to have tinnitus for years, I went to at least 8 doctors, and I had MRI, cat scan, all this. Nothing, no answer. i asked my doctor to destroy my hearing nerve, so I don't hear anymore with that ear. But that was out of the question. In the mean time, i had migraines most of the time,. But I did a liver cleanse. After that, my migraines were gone, and I realized that my tinnitus was gone too. My liver was causing that, and I did not know.
      http://home.bluegrass.net/~jclark/liver_cleanse.htm
      if you do the cleansing , take acidophilus for at least 2 weeks after the cleansing, it will balance the friendly bacteria..
      And i want you to look at this site too. Its good to know more about your body, and take the right decision.

  22. QUESTION:
    Tinnitus is so hard to over come, Fighting for a cure, Input welcome?
    I developed a ringing/buzzing noise in my right ear on aug 22nd 2009. After a trauma due to slap to the ear that burst my eardrum. The ENT thinks the slap also caused slight nerve damage. So ever since that day it's been 24/7 ringing.

    Some people can live with it like it's not even a issue, but as far for me it's really effected my physiology. Sometimes people will come back with "It's not life threaten and atleast you do not have cancer or any missing limbs" which it 100% true and my heart goes out to anyone that has gone threw this. Yet many times the person that is saying this has not gone threw the torment of tinnitus.

    Many times All I hear is no cure/no hope when it comes to Tinnitus. Yet I'm fighting this tinnitus as hard as I can. The doctor gave me prednisone which is a steroid that promotes healing. I workout 20-60 min cardio and some weightlifting to de-stress my body 5 days out of the week. I quit smoking, cut back on my drinking, very light not daily. It's not as loud but doesn't mean its not as annoying. I often get discouraged when I don't see improvement in the ringing after many, many lifestyle changes. That is the battle I'm going through. I wanna work toward the goal of banishing tinnitus but if I see no improvement. What's the motivation to do better? I try to avoid loud places like sporting events and concerts things I ENJOYED dearly before the tinnitus. I am thankful that I do not notice my tinnitus in my daily life as much, i'm a full time student and whenever I'm outside for whatever reason the ringing is not there. So I can feel blessed in that regard.

    Since the accident I'm on Valium and Lexapro not just because of my tinnitus but it was a major reason I sought out help. I do suffer from depression and anxiety, I used to get high and I wont lie getting high is pleasant but if I could pick drugs or a sober happy, peaceful life I would pick sober. I regret getting wasted in my past. I should of got help with my depression and not self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

    And got out of the abusive relationship with a female that cause the damage in the first place. People think it's funny or doesn't happen but men can be victims of domestic abuse as well as women.

    I just want a second chance at life. Has tinnitus effecting anyone else life this deeply? What are some useful tips/drugs? Should I keep fighting for the cure?

    • ANSWER:
      It sounds like you are taking all very positive steps towards healing. Keep in mind that it really has not been that long since you sustained your injury. You indicated that it has improved somewhat so that should be encouraging. Stay on your therapeutic methods and give it several more months. It might just continue to improve. These things can take a long time to heal.
      I, too suffer from tinnitus and have had to work diligently on adjusting to it. It can be extremely annoying. One thing that has helped me is white noise, especially for sleeping. Tinnitus is "phantom" noise so having a distracting outside noise seems to help. I keep soft earplugs handy for noisy, crowded places and air travel. Seems to help. Ear nub head phones and soft music is also a relief. My condition is due to cochlear damage so there really is no cure.
      I hope some of these suggestions help and I hope you continue to heal.
      Blessings

  23. QUESTION:
    I REALLY need help please...?
    I have been suffering from mild tinnitus(ringing ears) for a couple of months now. I want to first find the cause of it. I'm 15 btw.
    I naturally have a unaligned jaw. From a scale of 0-10, how possible is this the cause of TMJ/TMD and therefore tinnitus?
    A few weeks after my tinnitus started, i started having weird mild neck uncomfortableness. Hahas. Like a feeling to stretch my neck/roll it around. Not sure if this is just in my mind though.
    Also, if it is, how can i cure it? Expensive treatment?
    More info on other cause or explainations are very much appreciated.
    Thanks.
    I never listen to overly loud music except this one thime a couple of days before the tinnitus started. I accidentally played my ipod at the max for about 5 or less seconds. I don't think it is that significant to cause such damage though. (:

  25. QUESTION:
    Is TMJ the cause of my tinnitus?
    I'm listing my symptoms etc.
    I'm a 15 year old girl.
    My tinnitus started about 2 months ago and it sound like tv static/ringing/crickets. It's rather soft but still rather prominent in quiet places/places without white noises. Sometimes it gets better, sometimes it worsens. Pretty manageable but i'm worried it will get worse in time.
    It is in BOTH ears. I seem to focus more on the right ear most of the time though. Not sure if i'm a more right person or if it's louder on the right. If i try to listen, i can quite easily pick out the sound in my left ear in relatively quite places.
    I was born with a crossbite, meaning my lower jaw is more aligned to the left. Not very bad but still quite obvious if you look.
    I read about some tests to check if it is caused by TMJ but i'm not sure if those are myth or facts.
    -Pressing palm against forehead and resist with forehead
    -Pressing palm against lower jaw
    -Clenching jaw/teeth
    My tinnitus became more high pitched during all 3 tests.
    How high are the possibilities of my tinnitus being caused by TMJ? Are there any cures? Cost of treatment? WILL IT GET WORSE IN TIME? Who can i go to for a diagnosis?

    Also, i once suspected cochlear damage but other than this one-off incident of playing my ipod at max volume for about 5 secs a couple of days before the tinnitus started, i always listen to volumes very well within appropriate. Or could it really be this?
    Thanks for going through my long post. (:

    • ANSWER:
      The iPod could be a contributing factor. I had this start with me at 12 and it dissipated over time, either that or I got used to it to the point that my ears had a little ringing. No worries though, ask anybody and they'll say that they hear ringing in quiet situations.

      So in conclusion, (lol) try and ignore it, see a doctor if it worsens and you'll be fine.

      All the best and God bless.

  26. QUESTION:
    Tinnitus at age thirteen?
    There is always a ringing noise in my ears, and it is driving away every ounce of sanity from me. I do not listen to loud music, and have never suffered any injuries that would have caused it, aside from passing out and hitting my temple against a metal towel rack. However, I am still skeptical that this is the cause of the continuous ringing. In fact, I'm not sure exactly when it started, but it has gone on for months. I have tried to ignore it, but I can no longer take it. Is there a cure?

    • ANSWER:
      Go see a doctor. I've had tinnitus from excessive ear wax before, and it usually just needs a good cleaning. A sudden change in air pressure has caused it, as well. But if it's lasting for months, there may be something wrong. Ask an ear specialist.

  27. QUESTION:
    Really stumped on this migraine, how can i kill it?
    Its been sense mid march of this year, im 26 years old, ive been to a neurologist, headache doc, physical therapist, and so on. My neck is always in pain, my face and head have so much pressure, my eyes hurt, which causes me to see "white snow" , kind of like tv fuzzy white spots all around, during day/night, especially in daylight, if i were to look at the ground or sky, it looks all fuzzy. The pain mainly originates from the neck, and back of the head. Ive had MRI's, and CAT scans, all normal, except the MRI showed slight disc inflamation on a few discs in the neck. My ears ring, all the time, my neck and head feel so much pressure my ears hurt. Any cure for this? No doctor has figured it out, i even had shots in the back of my head above the neck by my headache doc, to block the nerve that goes from neck to head, to help the pain. Its been a few weeks sense then, no help with that so far. I take any med you can think of, even Migranal (which is like a nasal spray). Its effective for a small time but didnt work too well for me. Any help would be great. Thanks so much. -Chris.
    i agree marine. The migraines been so bad i was in the hospital one night, when it all started, they gave me morphine and 2 perkocet, just to knock me out, didnt kill the pain. I cant figure it out. Ive taken ibprofin, advil, excedrin, tylenol, everything i can think of, nothing works. Keep in mind i dont take meds everyday, for it isnt good for your body, i try to keep it a pill or two a week.

  28. QUESTION:
    I need some educated diagnosis for my tinitus. Please read details and tell me what you educated speculations?
    I have had some tinnitus since I was a child. I'm an epileptic no seizures for last 23 yrs. No seizure med changes for last 16yrs. 1 yr after I became a nurse, my ears started having pressure problems that still cause me to re pressurize them like one does when going up in a plane.MD's said it would go away on its own. It did not. I got used to it. I guessed that the frequent nose blowing or sniffing I had to do was the cause of that chronic problem.Yes, I have terrible allergies forcing me to take allergy med frequently .At one vision appt the md said I had high pressure behind my eyes.(Its in normal range now) Now the ringing in my ears has gotten substantially louder in the last 6 mos. I'm a nurse of 13 yrs and offend sit near a call light box designed to be heard throughout the hall. .The MD referred me to an audiologist who after testing my hearing said my tinnitus was due to hearing loss. The best thing she offered was biofeedback which she wasn't endorsing as a cure either. She said you just have to accept the fact your getting older. Traditional medicine has failed me. I've tried Quietusse, no relief for me. Can someone connect the ear eye and nose problems? Oh yeah the seizure med is carbatrol.

    • ANSWER:
      This is my own experience about how to cure tinnitus, I've experienced tinnitus, I consult a doctor and the doctor giving the drug, but not cured, I am seeking information about how to cure tinnitus in the Internet, I finally bought Thomas Coleman's ebook on http://tinnitus.jhocom.com I follow all the instructions, within 2 mounth, my tinnitus was cured.

  30. QUESTION:
    Ear fullness and painful headaches!?
    For 5 years I have had fullness in my ears, similar to a barometric pressure change, but it doesn't go away for an instant. I have constant ringing in my ears. Every few months or so, I get extremely painful headaches when I change altitude. These headaches only last for around 7 minutes, but it hurts so bad that I can't drive, I can't see straight, I feel like I might seizure any moment, and I just want to pass out. But there is no sensitivity to light, or many other symptoms of regular migraines.
    I've been to different specialists, and I don't have an ear infection, I don't have Meniere's disease, no wax build up, and antihistamines don't work. One guessed that I have TMJ caused by my braces but I've had them off for 3 years now and the problem continues... I did have dizziness, but that was cured by repositioning my ear crystals.
    I don't know what to do!
    I have seen MANY doctors!

    • ANSWER:
      Carrie - it sounds like you have fluid build-up behind your ear drums. Did the doctors notice that?

      I have something similar, but mine was brought on by an infected tooth! Got the tooth fixed, but it took MONTHS for the ear to get better.

      Do you have allergies, sinus problems - or something like that? I'm wondering what might keep fluid there all the time...... eustachian tube blockage?

      Have the doctors done a head x-ray to see what's going on?

  31. QUESTION:
    Is there anyone out there who has been or knows someone who has vertigo? Need Help?
    Here it is. My grandmother has been diagnosed with vertigo. It is caused by different reasons but the symptoms are extreme dizziness, ringing in the ear, and there is no cure for this. I have researched this and found that certain excersises can be used to help reduce the attacks. I also found that chiropractic care can help with this. I would like to know if anyone out there has used a chiropractor for this particular reason. If so did it help? I go to one so I know the possibility is there but I would like to know if someone as used them for this specific reason and the outcome?
    This type of vertigo is BPPV. I've done some research on this including the type of excersises, drugs, surgeries, and of course some into chiropratic care. There was a study in 2006 on the results of chiropratic care on 60 diagnosed vertigo patients with type BPPV. Out of those 60 48 were total free of it in six months and the other 12 were showing great improvement. So again, I wanted to know if anyone knows of a person with this who has had chiropractic care and did it help relieve the symptoms or even help to become totally symptom free?

    • ANSWER:
      Did they tell you the source of the vertigo?

      Did you do any research on BPPV?

      EDIT: I have BPPV and most of the time it does not bother me. Sometimes if I roll over in bed too quickly I get vertigo. There are exercises you can do to reposition the displaced crystals. I recommend (personally) that you see an ENT physician for properly performing the exercises at home. If this does not work, I guess you could try a chiropractor.

  32. QUESTION:
    URGENT HELP NEEDED PLEASE.?
    Sorry about the caps.
    I'm 15 years old. There has been ringing/cricket-ish noise in my ears for about a month already and i'm worried.
    I'm not sure what went wrong but i will list out some possible causes and you can help me see which one is more probable.

    1. Cochlear(ear cells) damage. REASON - i always listen to my ipod at low volumes well below to cause harm. However, i once accidentally blasted it at the max volume for about 5 secs. A day or so later, i started noticing the sound in my ears. It did not start immediately after the incident though. I heard that if it was cochlear damage, the sound would start immediately. Is this true?

    2. Sinus. REASON - Not sure about this but i have a mildly sensitive nose and suffer from blocked nose sometimes when i just get out of bed. It does not happen often though. The tinnitus also started around/before i got a cold. I have since recovered but the ringing is still there. I'm not really sure about this cause but i'll just list it out.

    3. Jaw disorder. REASON - When i clench my jaws/teeth together, the sound in my ears become sharper and higher pitched. When i press my palm against my forehead and resist with my head, the sound also seem to become a slightly higher pitch. Apparently, this matches the tests to check for tinnitus caused by jaw problems. My teeth/jaw is also not aligned. I have straight teeth but my jaw is like not directly on top of each other. As in my lower jaw is more to the left. I don't have an overbite though. My teeth are directly above each other. Just that my jaw is not aligned.

    4. My tinnitus is not cause by anything and i am just horribly unlucky and destined not to find a cure.

    OR you can suggest other more likely causes of my tinnitus.

    Also, i have been prescribed DUXARIL by my doc for a month. It's my second week now and no improvement. Is this normal? Should i just go see a specialist?
    It's been a month so i'm really worried that my tinnitus will be permanent. So please help me. A million thanks.
    I've been to the doc but he did not give me any detailed examination, just a look into my ear. He just based it on the fact that i said i listened to my ipod and decided it was cochlear damage.
    Thanks to both of you by the way. (:

    • ANSWER:
      Wow, you're really sharp for your age, and it seems like you have a pretty good understanding of your health and things that affect it. Maybe you should get into the medical field when you get out of high school!

      Sadly, I don't think anyone on Yahoo answers is smart or qualified enough to answer your question; you'll really need to go to a doctor to get a good diagnosis. From my best guess though, I don't think you've suffered cochlear damage from music. Usually it takes a lot of loud noises over a long period of time to cause this type of damage (soldiers, construction workers, and rock musicians are people who get this). You're more likely to suffer tympanum (ear drum) damage from a single, loud sound, but it doesn't sound like you have.

      It could be having to do with a sinus infection, since your nose, ears and many other sinuses are technically connected and bacteria can spread through them; another good reason to see a doctor so they can test you. I'm not sure about the jaw thing: you might just be hearing different sounds because your sinuses are distorting when you flex your jaw muscles.

      There are some medications that have tinnitus as a side effect. I tried looking up "duxaril" in a couple drug books, but I couldn't find it in any of the nursing ones I have. However, I did a search for it online, and tinnitus was coming up a lot as a side effect. It could be very likely that the medication is causing it: even more of a reason to make an appointment, because your doctor might want to change your medication.

      I hope it works out for you, good luck!

  33. QUESTION:
    Bothered by tinitus.?
    I have what i think is considered tinitus, (ringing in the ears).The sounds I constantly hear are just like the ones the the doctor used for a hearing test.This condition has bothered me for well over 20 year, some days are worse than others, causing me to loose many hours of sleep.
    Is there any real cure for tinitus, and has this condition ever caused a person to be considered disabled by it?

    • ANSWER:
      There are many different causes for tinnitus; a person's diet, hearing damage, stress, high blood pressure, longterm ear wax buildup, sinus problems, and a lot of other things. Whether or not a person's tinnitus can be cured depends on why it's happening. There is no overall cure that restores normal hearing for every case.

      Any health issue that keeps you from being able to function normally is considered a disability depending on the severity.

      I have constant ringing in my ears, but it isn't bad enough that I can't tune it out. Sometimes it's worse than others. I do have to turn up the volume on the television and the radio higher than I used to. Plus I have to ask people to repeat themselves if they don't talk loud enough to be heard over the ringing.

      You should consider seeing an audiologist since it is keeping you from getting a good night's sleep.

  34. QUESTION:
    What can I do? Everything is so hopeless.?
    I recently (2 months ago) developed tinnitus (a constant loud ringing in my ears) and hyperacusis (an extreme sensitivity to sound). There is no cure for either of those, and they will most likely be permanent. What makes it really bad is that I'm only 20, and a musician (I've played the violin for 14 years). I always had dreams of having a career in music, but now I feel like that will never happen. It hurts my ears just to play my violin. I feel so hopeless. I don't know what to do, or where to go.

    I am seeing a counselor, but he doesn't really know what I'm going through, and I've seen doctors, and they said the best thing I can do is to get back to my normal life. But that is tough because my normal life (music) is what caused my tinnitus and hyperacusis in the first place. Please help me. I don't know what to do.

  35. QUESTION:
    Tinnitus.....a little help or advice people?
    ok i was diagnosed with tinnitus last year after hearing the constant ringing in my ears. After many doc appointments, appointments with ENT and after having an MRI the doctors couldn't understand what caused the tinnitus.

    I was given a hearing aid and for a while it somewhat helped. A few months later it felt as though the tinnitus was no longer there, well it was but it was more quieter and i was able to hear again. Then it happened again, and again continued on for a few months and then went quieter again and hooray i was able to hear. I was hoping i wouldn't have any more problems until recently when the loudness of my tinnitus kicked up again :(

    Does this happen to anyone? am i alone in this? Can anyone suggest how i can tune the tinntus out? I know there is no cure but there's got to be something to help me cope or manage it somehow. Its so loud and is at the point where i can't get into conversations with anyone because i can't hear. This makes me very depressed.

    • ANSWER:
      rainbowbrite,
      The answer of ‘chebrew2000’, above, will take you to a forum that has a specific link for tinnitus. It may be of interest. Briefly, tinnitus has one of three causes, a trigger or a medication or it is idiopathic, which means of uncertain or unknown origin. There are methods of examination that the medical profession carry out to ascertain the cause. You would be advised to consult your doctor. There are also items on the market that disguise the sound incurred by tinnitus that may prevent you from sleeping. They make sounds usually of a water-based origin like waves, a waterfall etc. These do not address the cause.

      ALL ANSWERS SHOULD BE THOROUGHLY RESEARCHED, IN ANY FORUM AND ESPECIALLY IN THIS ONE. - MANY ANSWERS ARE FLAWED.

      It is extremely important to obtain an accurate diagnosis before trying to find a cure. Many diseases and conditions share common symptoms.

      The information provided here should not be used during any medical emergency or for the diagnosis or treatment of any medical condition. A licensed physician should be consulted for diagnosis and treatment of any and all medical conditions.

    Verse 1: D4mn how did we get here we're livin in fear
    how history repeats itself can never stir clear
    cries for help ring in my ear
    from the sheer terror of it all...I shed a tear
    can't disappear sometimes I wish the end was near
    but back to reality where life still exists
    we're still on this earth but we got shackles on our wrists
    must be the reason why you never even stopped to lend a hand
    too caught up in your ways for you to try to understand

    Verse 2 (sphere): I keep dwelling in the past and it mite be your last time
    breathin
    runnin from the bullets that passed without reason
    i'm thinkin who could be next "am I the target" sittin on my i'm stressed.
    What's it's all worth givin off birth to hate..
    i contemplate
    survival joinin the race wat we facin the same shi!t
    different place gotta get along now yea our futures at stake

    Chrous

    Verse 3 (sphere): do you believe
    or are you the one to deceive i'm just tryna find peace while you held up and freeze
    comin thru epidemic can you cure this disease
    yo our lives on the line yea you know what I mean
    human beings created the guns aided the funds for war assembling troops hiding the truth we mourn never to late to find yourself reborn
    connectin overseas it's on word is bond

    Verse 4: So there you have it my whole life with all it memories
    i'm tryna figure out how to set all of my pain free
    sometimes I wish that I could turn the hands of time back
    so I could rewrite the wrong and put my life back on the rite track
    wake up to reality try to accept the way it is
    they say that lifes not what you take it's your willingness to give
    that's why I wrote this song in hopes to heal the pain within cause after that I know that's when my life truly begins

    [Chorus]

    Outro: imprinted in our minds from the minute we were born
    wit misconceptions of life that's how our lives get torn
    I say we wake up from this dream and let the sunlight in
    so we can help each other heal the pain within

    (Sphere)
    understandin, demandin, thoughts are abandoned
    hand in hand and relate keep hangin
    on till the teardrops gon till my son will be born till my soul will live on forever

    [Chorus]

      A poem and lyrics can be similar, but in this case, a song like this is an offence to poetry, and analysing it is just pointless. A good poem to analyse is London by Willam Blake. Very interesting.

  37. QUESTION:
    Common Cold - Advice Needed.?
    I've just come down with a common cold and it's causing me a lot of bother. I have ringing in my right ear, running and blocked nose. I've also just experienced a dizzy spell which made me feel as if I was going to faint, my eye sight went blurry and I wobbled. I also seem to have a shortness of breath.

    I know that there are no cures for a common cold as there are loads of different types, however, I've never had a common cold like this before - ever. I'm living in bed with orange juice, lemsip max tablets and a million tissues. Should I go to A&E if this gets any worse or if I experience another dizzy/faint spell?

    • ANSWER:
      Hey don't worry, its not a big problem. Bringing sniffles and sneezes and perhaps a sore throat and annoying cough, the common cold catches all of us from time to time.

      With kids getting as many as eight colds per year or more, this contagious viral infection of the upper respiratory tract is the most common infectious disease in the United States and the No. 1 reason kids visit the doctor and stay home from school.
      Causes

      Most colds are caused by rhinoviruses that are in invisible droplets in the air we breathe or on things we touch. More than 100 different rhinoviruses can infiltrate the protective lining of the nose and throat, triggering an immune system reaction that can cause a throat sore and headache, and make it hard to breathe through the nose.

  38. QUESTION:
    Can you share your tinnitus experience with me?
    Well, i have tinnitus. It's a high pitch buzzing/ringing/computer-like buzzing noise. It's not loud and i can tune out of it if i focus on my breathing for awhile. However, i will always end up picking it up. Like my brain can't stop myself from searching for that noise. I've heard that tinnitus is incurable. I'm scared because i will sometimes feel very frustrated because i can't shut the noise out. If i cover my ears, it just gets louder. Also, i found out that by clenching my teeth, the sound becomes more high pitched and more ringing-like. I believe that my tinnitus was caused by acoustic trauma (noise) because it happened a day or so after i accidentally played my ipod at a max for a few seconds. I was experimenting with it and forgot about the volume. I normally play it at around 30% or less so it must have been a shock for my ears. Is this type of tinnitus curable? I have been prescribed Duxaril by my doctor for a week who said that my tinnitus is temporary. He did not examine though, just asked some questions. It is now the third day of medication and it doesn't seem to be gone. It does seem VERY slightly less annoying but i'm not sure if my ears are healing or it's in my head, meaning that it only seem to be a LITTLE better because i've gotten more used to the sound. Moreover, i'm not sure if it is even better cuz it doesn't seem to be different because it has not made any marked improvement. I'm worried that the doctor has made a wrong diagnosis and that i might never be cured. Is this progress normal during healing? Please help me. Also, are there any other medications for my tinnitus that i can take if Duxaril fails? And i am 15 years old. Please answer. Thanks.
    My doctor just looked in my ear and said it was temporary and gave me Duxaril, which has not helped. (yet,hopefully)

    • ANSWER:
      I am sorry to hear you are suffering from tinnitus, i also suffer from it, for the majority of my 19-year-old-life.. so i can sympathise with you. i can also tell you that a few months ago i found a person's blog space thingy (in the UK i think): http://lets-beat-tinnitus.co.uk/blog/free-tinnitus-pulse-therapy/

      You should check it out, even though, yes there is no absolute cure at the moment for tinnitus, this site did help me a lot with just its informatioin and 'tone therapy' which is what that link is to :)

      oh and when i actually realised that the sound in my head was actually tinnitus ( living with it for as long as i could remember, i just thought it was normal) i went to the doctor and he asked me questions, looked in my ears, and then said sorry, nothing we can do. :(

  39. QUESTION:
    how can i GET RID OF MY ALLERGY INDUCED TINNITUS?
    I have had this ringing constantly for about 2 months now.The drs say its probally allergy induced...but i also have hardcore stress right now...not sure if it was caused by the tinnitus.Any how,some times its gets very mild then other times mostly when i dwell on it,it gets louder.I wouldve thought it was just stress induced,but I also noticed its at its worse when my ears feel plugged.For a couple months before i got it,I was having episodes where my ear would feel very full,like they needed to pop.And now they crak and kinda pop throughout the day.I also have headches.My dr said It would go away in a few weeks,but its been 2 months,and im starting to think will never go away.And if it in fact is due to allergies,how will it go away if they dont know what type of allergy and how to treat it???

    So has anyone had any success in curing it by natural remedies???Oh,and oddly enough most of the time now its actually better at night then in the day.
    BTw,The dr said there is no liquid or wax in the ears,and the sinuses are clear. Also its in only my right ear though sometimes when its loud it feels like its throughout my head.

  40. QUESTION:
    Pain in jaw after waking up?
    Hi. :) I'm an insomniac who has tried many different cures over the years. Yesterday, my doctor prescribed me "Restoril." I took it at 8 pm, expecting it to kick in quickly, I went to bed. Much much later, at 3am, I feel less tired than I did before I took the medicine. Eventually, around 4, I fell asleep, but I woke up feeling terrible. My mouth won't open all of the way because of pain on the right side of my jaw, and my ear on that side is ringing and feels painful. If I try to ignore the pain and open my mouth like normal, there is a crunching noise. It's hard to describe. I'm not sure if it's coincidence, or if this has something to do with the medicine. Maybe this is the onset of TMJ or something? I'm a very anxious and stressy person, so I wouldn't be surprised if it was just coincidence and caused by tense muscles from grinding my teeth or something. I was just wondering if anyone has woken up with the same feeling in their jaw and if they knew what it may be. Thanks for your help. :) I've never had this symptom before, and I hope it doesn't last. x_x

    • ANSWER:
      dunno about the meds or the ringing, but every once in a while ill wake up with my jaw hurting and not wanting to open, ive researched it and discovered i must be clinching my jaw while i sleep, usually happens when i get real drunk and have a vivid dream,
      to relieve the pain take acetaminophen like tylenol, and try and conciously leave your mouth a lil bit open and try to keep it relaxed, the mucles in your jaw i mean.
      this usually lets it go away after around 6 to 8 hours, before ive tried this it lasted for days
