      Just heard a random success story from my audiologist when I was getting new custom ear plug moulds done. She had a client who suffered with tinnitus for most of her adult life and it stopped when she turned 80. She literally woke up one morning and the ringing stopped and never came back.

      I don't know anymore details regarding how she got it / how loud etc but it gave me a tiny bit of hope.

      To be honest my first thought was "80 is so old though.." but say that lady lives to 100 that's 20 years old blissful silence.

      To be honest sounds like a BS story that the audiology told you to make you feel better and disregard tinnitus as something serious...

      But honestly if you suffer all your life with it just for it to pass when you are 80 damn... that is one slap in the face by life... I mean sure better late than never but her life might have still been ruined.

      I don't know if the story is true or not, but if it would be for just making @Holly1987 feel better, she would have said the old lady solved her tinnnitus when she was 60 o 70 years old.:)

      @Holly1987

      I heard a similar story of a guy that got his tinnitus cured after having a stroke. It is so random that it really does not mean anything. Perhaps his hyperactive neurons died during the event.
      In any case, I have no doubt that we are set for life with this horrible condition..... Yes, there are worse conditions, but it does not really help me to know that either.

      After the ENT I saw told me to “live with it” he told me a story about an alleged patient of his. He said this woman got tinnitus and made an appointment with him every six months for eight years. At her eight year appointment she told him it had gone away completely overnight. That story felt like BS back then and seems like even more BS now. Anything to get me out of his office I guess. Funny thing is I work at the same hospital he does. A few times a month I’m the nurse in surgeries he does. He can’t even look me in the eye now.

      “As a young man, Lowry spent a summer working on a farm with a noisy tractor. The experience left him with partial hearing loss and a high-pitched ringing in his ears that plagued him for 40 years. Then at age 63, Lowry suffered a mild stroke. A CT scan and an MRI revealed that the stroke had damaged his caudate and putamen. But the stroke also brought a pleasant surprise. Lowry was completely cured of his tinnitus, without any further hearing loss.”

      Creepy story.
      Hope you're feeling better after the work accident.
      Do you think it would be possible to do your job with hyperacusis?

      This job would be very difficult for someone with pain hyperacusis. My difficulties have to do with the reactive nature of my tinnitus. It often demands to be the loudest thing in the room. My most difficult times are those spent at work. I don't know if it's a psychological or a physical reaction to sound, but its awful. I'm happiest in quiet environments. I have a job interview tomorrow. I'm looking to leave my job of 17 years because I can't handle it anymore. I love my job, but my situation hasn't improved over the last 9 months. I'm not even convinced I'll like this other job, but I feel like I don't have any choice.
