      Thank you so much for responding. So is ttts and mem the same thing? Have you ever been to a chiropractor? I went to one and he found sublaxation in my back which he believes causing the sound in my ear and gerd too.. Your positive comment that it will get better in time gives me hope. You are a wonderful person. Thank you really.

        I had 4 sessions of chiropractic care and will be doing for the next few months. So far, I can say that it improved my tinnitus, I only get like one or 2 thumps after burping. , but I noticed that I get ticking sound like that of a clock when laying down not sure if its because of my neck and spine is in the process of aligning. Sorry for my english but thought id give some update. Hopefully you are all well!!

      Hello, can I ask you about the people with MEM you talked to who got better? Did they do something like exercise more? Did some of them get surgery? My MEM comes and goes (for now) but I would feel a lot less anxious during episodes if I knew I could cut the muscles. hope you're doing well, have a good day!

        Some people do nothing and after time goes away. Other do magnesium and COQ10, other do potassium or vitamin B.
        Some many different causes it seems and surgery needs to be done for sure with laser to be successful. Even with surgery few still have the vibrations and end doing medications as Cymbalta

        What about TMJ/neck massage? Relaxing the muscles around the ear may help a little, and even if it doesn’t, it feels nice.

        I see @NYCGuy, no doubt you know how these things go by now.

        Your anxiety will be increasing muscle tension. Try break the cycle somehow. Easier said than done I know. Do anything you find relaxing/distracting.

        Really hope it calms down soon.

        I just got a scrip for Clomipramine for H. I've been using online docs, since docs in my town are terrified of prescribing anything off-label. Dr Miguel Antonatos, brilliant. Love the guy. He calls it hyperacusia. Helped me more than the last 5 local docs I've seen. He also got me on LD Naltrexone, which isn't even an antidepresant but it acts like one..

The other commenters are right, of course there is hope and of course there is a chance of improvement, but the tinnitus hell you're forced to live with is an unbelievable challenge as well - all day, every day -

I don't have to tell you to think this through carefully because I'm sure you already have. Whatever you decide I wish you all the courage in the world because one decision is as hard as the other, all the best!
