      Tinnitus Since:
      I have been a T for about 7 years. It's mostly in my left ear but lately spreads throughout my head and right ear. I read a book about self hypnosis with your eyes open and started practicing. I can visualize the T moving back into my left ear. I am attempting to visualize encapsulating the sound and removing it. I'm also taking vitamin b12 for brain plasticity. I'll keep you informed of my progress.
