My tinnitus started in June 2012, when I was a young 61yr old. It just appeared out of the blue when I was gardening. Sent by doctor to ENT they said there was nothing wrong with my ears, however sent me for an MRI. This showed up some lesions on my brain and was told it could be MS. By now my life seemed to be falling apart, especially as I have always been healthy apart from having slightly high blood pressure. I had a second MRI a few months later on my brain and spine as lesions show on the spine if MS. Luckily I had none showing, it was diagnosed as small vessel disease. The tinnitus was a real problem as it was in my right ear, was very loud and high pitched. I became depressed and couldn't sleep at night. I done a lot of research as I was determined that I was not going to live with this for the rest of my life. Everyone tells you it's only tinnitus and you have to get on with it. Great. I tried maskers, cognitive therapy, cranial massages, had a dental mouth guard as I had a clicky jaw, chiropractice, neuromodulater interview in London which would cost £4,500 and was not guaranteed, supplements etc. My last resort was acupuncture. On my 5th visit I mentioned that I thought the tinnitus may have something to do with my blood pressure, so she decided to work on my blood pressure channels. Three days later my TINNITUS JUST DISSAPEARED along with my tension headaches and balance problems. I was absolutely overjoyed. I must also add that I think the B12 high strength vit also played a part as I have recently found out that if you are vit. B12 deficient this can cause tinnitus, so I have been taking it for 15 months. It has been 9 months now and every body has been telling me that I am back to my self. So please all of you out there don't give up, keep trying. Tinnitus is such a debilitating thing and nobody understands except YOU.
