Guys, science is already sure why is it that some people have tinnitus and others don't? May 5, 2021 at 1:32 PM

        My dad has hearing loss. He had very mild loss in the military and developed more from occupational hearing loss. He only has mild fleeting tinnitus rarely. He didn't know he had it until I asked him about it and he said now that I listen for I think I do.

        Absolutely not. There are theories though, but no certainty whatsoever as far as I know. Dr. Will Sedley suspects that people with more predictive brains are more likely to develop tinnitus.

      I see the sound of metal. The guy is deaf and has no T and I have no hearing loss and I have a jet engine in my ears.

      only I am the saddest at the weekend? I think it's because I see people all happy and I am in this hell.

        I am also super sad. But I don't know why. My T is not that bad today. I'm just so tired from this, I wanna be normal.

        We will be happy eventually. The other people you see might have other problems We are unaware of. We are alive and breathing...thats something to be grateful for. I know it's hard to find the silver lining but we have to hang on to ever piece of positivity weather it's true or not.

      Once again the doctor says my hearing is fine. But he suspects that I may have a problem with my ATM. I've already booked with my dentist.

      Today I am going to a new ENT that my family says has already cured people with tinnitus. I just wanted to be told the cause of my tinnitus.

        @Bill Bauer I'm at home work, that is, I spend my days at home. at the end of the day i will always run in the park then i have the noise of nature and a bit distant from the cars. I have hearing protectors but I have not yet been in a situation that I have been forced to wear.

        My medication right now is 10MG of Brintellix (vortioxetine)

        As for the reason I am pessimistic about the future, I don't live in a free country (none of us do), so I can't spell it out. All I can say is: Read the news...

      I think the FX-322 is not going to solve our problem with the T, I think that even if we have the perfect hearing,the T will still be there.

        @Keith Handy I was glad that there was a pill to stop the noise for at least 9 hours to sleep :) that says a pill says a device! :D

        @Tezcatlipoca yeah, he just gets on with it. Actually, it was listening to him make jokes about it, that helped me change my reaction to mine. Obviously we don’t want people to think we’re not suffering, but at the same time, until we have a treatment, we have to do whatever we can to make it easier for us - and if making light of it helps him, then so be it!

        Like I said, let them know how difficult it is for you right now, and tell them you’re having to rebuild your life bit-by-bit, but you’ll get back to normal- you just need to take some time out to figure it all out.

        Tell them to fuck off. Or, better, just give them a pair of headphones reproducing some 14 kHz sine wave and then crank the volume up a bit. I bet they would immediatly understand

        I agree, but if you discover something for this symptom and then manage to optimize the side effects so that it is a cleaner medicine it was already a start of hope.

        Our life with these noises and static is out of control, we don't know if tomorrow is worse, when we wake up in the middle of the night we can't rest anymore.

        I am sincere to you, at this moment I think more of a machine or drug to stop tinnitus than a cure for hearing loss.

        Who has hearing loss and has no tinnitus is blessed !! :)

        I say this because I don't have a hearing loss until 8khz xD

      If there is no hearing loss up to 8 kHz, and having a very high-pitched TV hiss, could it be the auditory nerve?
