      Idea of a cure is ridiculous. Millions poured into cancer research, and cancer still has NO cure. T gets fraction of that $

        cure hearing loss via regeneration of cochlear hair cells and you can expect a reduction in T if you have it because of hearing loss.

        But the idea of a treatment that could reduce the loudness isn't, at least in my opinion. I'm not saying someone's going to invent a 'magic pill' in a year but an actual treatment for a subgroup of sufferers in 10 years sounds reasonable.

        When has cochlear hair cell regeneration been in clinical trials before? Or trials about to start in 2019 on auditory nerve repair? Future is now.

        According to 3 audiologists + 1 ENT I have zero hearing loss

        But... "HIDDEN HEARING LOSS" forum says

        audiologist + ENT: "never heard of it, stop googling"

        My audiologist told me the same.. to stop googling that it is all nothing... Maybe he wanted to calm me down so that I don't worry anymore... IT is true that there are no real tests that can truly capture the problems with hidden hearing loss. From now on I am only listening to my ignorant doctors... i feel better when they say IT is nothing....

        Whenever I read that somewhere, it makes me irate. It’s like they’re playing it down. That sums up everything we have to put up with. Tinnitus is an illness/desease (of some kind) in it’s own right imo. Until people’s attitudes towards it change, nothing will ever happen...

      ...even though ENTs, doctors, and audiologists don't know anything about tinnitus and can't help out, so we're all f*cked anyways

      That moment you realize anytime you ask a tinnitus question the answer is always "ask a doctor", "get checked out by ENT/audiologist"...

        :( I am going to another ENT in march next year, one with a good reputation, I am exited tom see what he will tell me, but afraid that it will be another "there is nothing to do about it, go home and learn to live with it" :(

        @Lex I doubt it. Despite my age (32) my grandparents and great grandparents are still alive. In fact, my genes are excellent. Everyone in my family is in great shape, tall, athletic, and zero tinnitus. I asked around. My destiny? I keep asking myself what the point of my life is, especially lately.

        Ah then maybe you're just the unlucky one, the person who got the short end of the stick. Sucks to be part of the tiny unlucky minority. Also, maybe life doesn't need to have a point. Sure feels pointless to me now when almost 24/7 of it is spent on finding ways to minimize worsening and manage pain.

        Unfortunately, in life.. there is a thing called ‘sods law’. In life things don’t always make sense and can feel unfair. As much as I agree with you, thinking like this will only make things worse. I wish you all the best.
