      Hey Today I do 5 months of T. From 1 - 4 month it was always getting louder. This last month it has dropped in volume for the first time.

      When they tell you that it will get better, believe me it will. And that happens from one month to the next.

        @Sayeed Hi,
        I've been going with an improvement. The stress caused by tinnitus has disappeared, and the tinnitus has reduced a little after four months.
        Since it was 4 months always with the volume increasing, I see this month as a small progress.

        The only thing I took was Flunarizine, it seems to have done something to my tinnitus.

      What is it for you to get T lower? For me to be shorter, it's something that I couldn't mask my T now it does.

        The way I often see it is that commonly, T gets quieter in volume or the sound changes to become more tolerable over time for most people. Mine went from ringing to soft quiet static.

        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.

      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.

        @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!
