    Tinnitus Since:
    1/1/1990
    I don't really know when my tinnitus started. Not a constant for me. I get brief (minutes) spells of it. I think it is blood pressure related in part. I also have temporomandibular joint, or TMJ issues (I clench or grind my teeth) and that seems to correspond to when I get tinnitus.

    I have always been able to clear it by the things that help ear pressure, e.g. jaw exercises, yawning, chewing gum, swallowing and even more easily by singing (or at least making!) the highest pitch noise I can (in private!). I recently read that Taurine may help as it is a GABA precursor and GABA seems to be related to hearing loss and tinnitus. I am waiting to get my genetic testing back to see if I am predisposed to GABA deficiency.
