      Hi all, I'm new to this forum and found it in my search with a hope to a tinnitus cure. I had an accident 5 years ago - a car ran into the back of mine at high speed. The tinnitus started then and an ENT specialist said the hair cells inside my ears were flattened because of the collision and now I have tinnitus. In my desperation I've spent hundreds of dollars trying to cure the ailment but to no avail. I have constant high pitch ringing in my ears 24/7 and get depressed thinking I'll have to live with this for the rest of my life. I look forward to any comments, suggestions, cures (!)

      @Spike you've had T since 2008? You never habituated?

      How did your ENT know that your tinnitus was because of flattened hair cells in your ears?
      Did he ran some tests to confirm his theory?

      To my knowledge, there is a lot of things in the neck/shoulder area that can cause tinnitus, even jaw problems.

      @Spike yes. For 7 years, 100% habituation. So I can tell you that habituation IS possible.
