    There is no way to predict unfortunately, especially since you don't have a root cause.

  3. GregCA liked RicoS's post in the thread Another Option for Me — Suicide.

    So he did not respond to you? Perhaps he was to busy with other stuff. The only one who can help you is you. I am an MMA teacher and always in the...

  4. GregCA replied to the thread Quick Question: Are Headphones Safe When Used for Meditation or Nature Sounds?.

  5. GregCA rated Alue's post Agree in the thread Hate How This "Silent" or "Hidden" Chronic Issue Is Affecting My Life.

    Me too. Work caused my severe tinnitus, and few people at work are at all sympathetic. Invisible disabilities suck.

    I think you're confusing MD and MS. MD is often used as an acronym for "Ménière's Disease".

    It would be awesome if there was imaging technology that could definitely answer that question/theory. Soon hopefully.

  10. GregCA replied to the thread Why So Many Hearing Loss Companies I Am Hearing About?.

    No, we don't. We also don't know that it will fix it.

  11. GregCA liked threefirefour's post in the thread How Far Will You Go to Get Rid of Tinnitus?.

  15. GregCA rated HomeoHebbian's post Informative in the thread 10 Hz Amplitude Modulated Sounds Induce Short-Term Tinnitus Suppression.

    Most people in the central gain camp think it is a heterosynaptic plasticity process. That means that all synaptic inputs impinging on a neuron...

  16. GregCA replied to the thread Treatments That Won't Worsen Tinnitus?.

    I think sound therapies may be a good start (nothing is risk free unfortunately).
