Stanlex

Member, from A world where everything sounds funny

An update. I was diagnosed with TMJ. Wearing TMJ splint for 3 weeks, so far the only symptom that got noticeably better is ear fullness. Sep 19, 2021

        Oh sweetheart. I was damn near suicidal into my second month. Still desperately fighting against my new reality. I fully understand what your going through. I needed to get on a antidepressant myself to help with that. Other then that it just took time and unfortunately some degree of acceptance. I'm now 16months in and its still with me but 1000% more manageable. Keep your head up.

        Thank u. Happy to hear it will hopefully get easier. I’m medicating as well at this point for the first time in my life. Someone shared a Euthanasia video with me when I was asking for positive stories. Needless to say I’m shaken up pretty good today. @BrOKeN_1

        @IntotheBlue03 sorry to hear someone would be that inconsiderate as to share that with you. Suicidal ideation is a common enough side effect with tinnitus sufferers. Especially during the initial onset. I try really hard to just be myself. Take all comments and suggestions you receive from this forum with cautious skepticism. Be kind to yourself.

      Hey man! I read your posts regarding the inconsistent tinnitus buzz sound you have. Does it sound something like a power circuit? I am having one right now in my right ear and the way you described yours - I am relating to it. Mine is something like this

      Is it possible to scan cervical spine for tinnitus? By some MRI or something?

      How is possible that my tinnitus is pretty well masked by human speech and water but I can crank up white noise and does nothing for me

        Your brain is being distracted by human speech especially if you are engaging in conversation. The same will happen if you are talking on the telephone with someone. Focus is taken away from the tinnitus. You are not helping yourself by cranking up the white noise to masked the tinnitus.

      The bad thing is that I even dehabituated from pre-spike tone. It was unnoticed for a year, and now I notice it all the time

      I fear that stress/anxiety/cervical spine induced tinnitus is just trash diagnosis doctors say when they have no idea what is the real cause

      A doc told me that overusing Ginkgo, Betahistine etc can cause low BP and headaches. I stopped taking it entirely and I feel better, weird.

      I sometimes do neck exercise but always give up after few days of nothing happening. It would be cool to try it for at least a month.

        I would say mine is moderate. It is loud, but not deadly loud but still significant. I can hear it almost everywhere but I can also sleep relatively normally even with no masking

        There has been a lot of advancements in tinnitus treatment in the last couple of years but it’s like gray area treatment they don’t really like to talk about it and it’s in clinical trials and what not but basically what I’m trying to say is there’s been a lot of advancements since my tinnitus started so my question is do you think maybe in 2030 there might be some advanced treatment ???

        @Stacken77 I remember I used to play some mixed modpack with magic and tech mods. I only used the tech mods, because the Thaumcraft was so weird, things like magic altars and so on - just like inside a chiro's office.

        @Damocles funny thing was when I was at physio and she was arguing that it couldn't be possible I cannot hear my tinnitus everywhere because when it plays in my ear I must hear it absolutely everywhere. Unfortunately mostly right when it is severe but tinnitus doesn't work that way. Masking is a thing
