        I like my SSRI Paxil; not a fan of Benzos; I hear great things about Lamictal. Imo not all doctors are equally brilliant; unless you've already consulted with all the best specialists don't give up hope that a cause can be found.

        Sorry to hear. Hang in there. .how on earth is an AD to help with pain? There are many meds for chronic headache. Also psilocybin is being used to combat and relieve chronic headache and nerve pain if you're adventurous and can find "researchers" willing to help. Take what docs say with a grain of salt. They don't know enough to suggest anything.

        I've been having success with Klonopin and lexapro. The Klonopin which I was so afraid of is actually helping.

      Hi Chris,
      Where did you go for your HBOT? I started with the devils noise just over a week a go and would like to give it a try. I rang a place near me and they only treat ms sufferers.

      Thanks Steven

        I went to the Harrow MS Therapy Centre. They can only treat MS patients first but they do tend to have enough slots available for other conditions. Best of luck! Mine came back again after the treatment finished sadly.

      I haven't left, just very busy with work. I will return shortly with reports from my new treatment on the NHS.

      A few days after O2 treatment finished and loud head-ringing has gone down, H is down a lot and feeling a bit better.

        Let us know if it continues to stay low. Hope it does for you!

      Confirmed: L-glutamine 500mg with a cup of Pu-Erh Tea is very relaxing

    Tinnitus Since:
    PT since 1988. T with H since June 2015
    Cause of Tinnitus:
    I had operations on my ears as a kid which may have contributed to my various ear noises over the years. I had Pulsate T from such an early age I don't remember when it started and I didn't know it was a problem until researching on the internet. I habituated automatically.

    In June 2015 I got a new type of T around 11khz in the left ear (same as Pulsate) and severe Hyperacusis, anything over 60dB will give me a migraine including my own voice.
