        Also not for me anymore. They are probably poison in long term. If we could at least off ourselves with them... but these stuff are weak as shit.

        Many people report getting the ability to cope with loud tinnitus after about 2 years...

        Try Lumomed laser like @scotty03874. Maybe Luci basic home laser? It suppose to help HF hearing loss. I'm looking into it with some skepticism.

        I used to have that electricity too, I actually liked it compared to the high pitch electrical sound I have now. I felt like you did probably just this past Monday and for no apparent reason the sounds got much better on tuesday. Just hold on and it could get better on it's own, it just has to be long enough for Lenire and/or the Michigan device.

        Understandable. Noise is torturous. Could be the limbic system. I had 1 good day then it returned upon awakening.

        Looks like you got tinnitus around the same time as me and you are only a couple of years younger so I totally get where you are coming from.

        Chances are it will reduce naturally over time. If it doesn't there's a pretty good chance that Lenire / bimodal neuromodulation will be able to reduce it, if not there's a pretty good chance that you will habituate.

        I had lost at least a year of my life as a result of T. Hopefully all you will end up losing is a year or two, and not more.

        The dentist extracted my second left premolar, was a perfectly healthy tooth. She said she had to make space in my mouth to reposition the rest of the teeth... I was never feel happy or safe with the decision to extract that tooth.

        I'm not sure if Invisalign contributed to me getting tinnitus, but it started halfway through my treatment. It was a particularly stressful period.

      Hi acute, hope you're doing well. I remember posting below you on a thread about circumin a few weeks ago so I wanted to know, have you tried taking it yet? I've been taking it for about 2 weeks now and was curious if it has had any affect for you, given our situations are similar. Let me know!

        Hi CroakyBat, I'm sorry for the delay. How are you feeling? Hope you feel better. I started with curcumin but I have not been very constant and I have not noticed great results, probably due to not having been consistent with the taking. Do you feel any improvement in your T since the use of curcumin? -Sorry for my bad english-

        I'm actually doing pretty well, thank you for asking! I do believe my ringing has improved since I joined the forum a few months ago, but it's hard to tell how much..it's definitely still there but it is not all that intrusive lately. Most importantly, mentally and emotionally I am doing a lot better. I'm starting to stop focusing on hearing the T at every moment and getting back to enjoying my life again.

        I think that alone has been a big reason for the improvement. I have been taking the circumin each night, but I'm only taking 1000mg. I believe higher dosages were giving me headaches and nausea. I've also been taking magnesium and ginkgo biloba.

      How are you feeling now? Would you say your T is quieter (or has a pitch that is easier to bear) compared to how it was back in June?

        Hi Bill, thanks for your concern. It's very kind of you. I haven't noticed much improvement in my T since May... which makes me sad and makes me feel despair. I have several sounds, but the most prominent now is a metallic and electric hiss in my head, kind of like a sound made by the air escaping from a punctured tire. No pure tone most of the time.

        Is there any way you could spend time somewhere where the noise bothers you less, at least few hours every day? I don't know, just a suggestion. Walking around, sitting on a quiet beach, or anything? I know it's not a cure. I just don't like the idea of getting addicted to benzos.

      Believe it or not it will get easier to handle. When you are having a really bad, remember those good days when the T was not bad. This method helps me a lot through the really bad days.

        You're right, it's probably going to take months, but the way we must endure for now is to do what we can to make it easier for us to take it day by day, with each day getting closer to sweet relief.

        The strategy I am doing is doing the same things I loved before the tinnitus. I focus on these things because they are still there right now with the noise, and they will still be there once the noise is gone.

      Hey acute, how severe is your tinnitus? Can you hear it throughout the day or only in quiet environments? I’m curious because I’m somewhat in your boat. I’m 22 and acquired tinnitus by being too close to a speaker at a concert on June 1st. I was in a panic after a week of barely sleeping, leading to my early posts on this forum. I do hope that your situation improves, and I’m confident that it will.

        "It is normal for T to slide back after an improvement. The daily fluctuations are irrelevant. What is important are the global lows and the monthly trend. If you have been experiencing some fading, this is a wonderful news. In a year or two you will feel a lot better."

        I wouldn't be making that comment if I wasn't convinced that it was true. This is something I learned as a result of having T and reading this forum for many months. Feeling better (on average) compared to a month or two ago is all that matters.

        You could talk to Dr. Shulman. He wrote books about tinnitus. He would know a lot more than anyone here. I’ve been talking to him lately. Even stress could cause tinnitus. I don’t know if you had any stressful things happen at the time you first had tinnitus? The brain can do some weird things to people under stress.
