Yes, I've had Tinnitus since 1990. It wasn't severe at first but by the mid nineties it was pretty bad. Sep 6, 2022

      On the basis of Dr Shore's theory and the hyperactivity of the DCN, do you think that tinnitus can worsen (increase in volume) over time because of the DCN?
      (The cause not being the noise of everyday life, but rather a form of hyperactivity, involving the trigeminal and dorsal nerves in the jaw and neck, for example).
      So what do you think?
      Thank you

      [QUOTE="dj_newark, post: 681836, member: 1401"]No, are you not familiar with Dr. Lim's work at the University of Minnesota? The current Lenire is a joke. The next version based on his work will be game changing.[/QUOTE]
      Are there any information on the next version of this device out? From where do you know that?

      Hi @dj_newark just curious I think we are in close proximity. I hope you're doing okay. I didn't mean my question to be insulting. I have tinnitus since 1989 so I've tried treatments I could afford.

        Sorry to hear that man, 1989 it angers me that you didnt get to experience the 90s and early 2000s tinnitus free. i missed out on most my 20s and college experiences.

        Dam that really freakin sucks that you didnt get to experience the 90s without tinnitus, like those are the freakin Golden years the years people including me all think fondly of, but instead it was probably spent dealing with this

        sorry for the late reply, but GOOD GOD i couldnt imagine how isolated you must of felt back then dealing with this. its 2022 and docs barely know what this is Back then im sure was HELL.

        But i Have to ask with all thats going on and since you are an OG, do you think from the ups and downs, all the tinnitus treatment trails that have all come and gone since the 90s that we are super close or is this a recurring thing. i literally see post made a decade ago of folks saying in 5-10 years and its like nothing changed.
