As a physician, let me support Dr. Nagler who is being honest and helpful to everyone who reads and posts on this board. I agree that a cure is well beyond our current medical and therapeutic technologies. I worry about those who are waiting for a 'cure'. I am especially concerned about the 'snake oil salesmen' who infest these boards offering treatments that cannot possibly work and false hope to tinnitus sufferers who are not coping well with the condition. I too have tinnitus. In my case it is age-related and after 2-3 months, I did habituate. It is just as loud as it always was but it does not bother me nearly as much and I have learned various techniques to use when it does.
