        Unlike some other types, Magnesium bis Glycinate doesn't have a laxative effect. So there's that. As for the dosage, begin with the dosage recommended by the manufacturer on the bottle.

        NAC, if it does anything, is something to be taken immediately after an acoustic event rather than an everyday supplement.

        Well, I've seen people write that they take NAC so that in case they get exposed to noise, there's already NAC in their system and they are ready for it... I've taken NAC for months. I am not sure whether it has helped, but I don't think it had been detrimental.

      I wake up everyday to pure silence but the T join me after few minutes. I can modulate it by moving my earlobe then it gets stuck in my head

      Occasional mild sharp ear pain, feels like stabbing. Extremely reactive T, changes every few minutes. Ears clicking/crackling all the time!

        No, but my tinnitus is somatic and can be modulated by neck movements

      Dentist prescribed me Cycloff 400mg ibuprofene. is it safe ? I bought it but I am still thinking if I should take it or not ?

        Ibuprofen in high doses or prolonged use can have an adverse effect on T, but basically any NSAIDs can. Paracetamol is supposed to be safer, but for me it doesn't do anything, so I take Ibuprofen when I can't take the pain. First time I had a spike, but because I haven't had any due to IP use since , I think it might have been because I was out of my mind anxious about it.

      Yesterday my 8khz T stopped and I heard silence, today I woke up to a new 12khz T that is easily modulated by moving my earlobe or tragus!

      The tinnitus is oscillating, sometimes it is intense, sometimes it is very faint and sometimes I hear silence. I feel positive :)

      Tinnitus 90% on the good ear (left) and 10% on bad ear (right). sometimes I hear silence on my right ear. It is weird, but I am happy anyway

      I feel my T more than I hear it sometimes, it feels like my head is full and I can't relax. I feel electricity in my brain!

        I dunno if it is normal. But I have also reactive one and pulsatile one on top of that.

        I am only still alive hoping it will stop for good one day just as it stops for seconds sometimes. I genuinely can't live with this forever!

      toothache 10 days after root canal, dentist prescribed me anti inflammatory (Flanid 200mg). Will this make my T worse ?

        I couldn't find it on an American list of ototoxic medications. But perhaps this is a European brand name...

      Update : Ears clicking/crackling 100 times a day. T swapping from ear to ear. Occasional pulsatile T that gets really loud when I exercise.

      My T stopped for few minutes and got replaced with clock ticking + some water sound. It is back now to baseline, but it was such a relief!

      Last night I was hearing my heart beat. I covered my ears with my palms and I could hear/feel my eardrum vibrate with my heartbeat ?

        This sounds like pulsatile tinnitus, I also have it. Get checked by an ENT, they might be able to diagnose the problem. Hope it gets better for you

        Well, when I first got T I had a bad H. So I Stayed home for a month, trying not to expose myself to any noise. I been taking magnesium and zinc but no medications. after sometime my H and T got better. I thought I'm healing from it. I remember my T was so faint that I sometimes forget it is there and I don't hear it even on silent rooms.

        I didn't want to plug my ears and check if it is really there or not because my goal was to not to focus on T at that time and get back to normal life. So I stated going out again making sure the place isn't loud. I remember I was feeling pain in my ears when someone laugh/clap hands. also a discomfort in a 70db street

        It sounds like you went back to normal life too soon. If I were you, I would get back to the lifestyle that had resulted in T fading. After 2-3 years or so, you might consider trying that "normal life" lifestyle again.

      Is it normal to feel your heart beat when you place your fingers beside your Tragus or behind your Earlobe ?

      Don't remember myself crying since my childhood. Today I cried so bad. My T changed from a hiss to an annoying high pitch tone. Unbearable!!
      1. Bill Bauer
        Bill Bauer
        When did you get T? what have you been doing for the three days before your hiss turned to a high pitch tone?

        I got it 5 months ago from testing my ears at home playing loud high pitched sine waves. the T today is back to the usual hiss, which sounds like a high pitch white noise. I've done nothing in last 3 days, always being careful with noise like usual.
