Hey folks, I suffered a SSHL in July 2010 in my right ear and tinnitus is a side effect. I was implanted with a BAHA after battling it out with my insurance company. The BAHA has helped some, but my severe tinnitus impacts my hearing greatly. To make matters worse, I am a speech language pathologist. Hearing acuity is a must in my job. So I feel like I get a double dose of reminding every second of every single day that I lost my hearing. I'm literally at my wits ends. I have been researching about treatments for tinnitus and ran across an interesting research study that has peaked my interest. The research study is called "Charlotte's Web". The study is named after a little girl who suffers from epilepsy. Researchers found "realm oil" reduced her seizures. I've read tinnitus is a form of "sensory epilepsy"....which makes perfect sense to me. Realm oil is illegal in NC and I am not eligible to participate in the study. So in my research I ran across "hemp oil". I visited my otolaryngologist and he has never heard of the study, but is willing to try anything that could possibly make a difference in my life as well as the life of his other patients. In all my rambling... have any of you tried realm oil or hemp oil and has it had a positive effect on your tinnitus?
