Hello! Got my tinnitus half-year ago, accompanied with mild vertigo (didn't notice before asked by an otolaryngologist). My experience showed that most doctors in Russia seem to think that the noise in the ear is nearly always to do with the vascular problems. The fact that I have a scoliosis just seems to prove their point (in their minds, that is). Standard treatment includes an old-fashioned set of stretches and moderately hard crunches for abs and your back. And, of course, some familiar to most of you b-vitamin-complexes and brain-blood-flow-enhancers-pills. They will also tell you to go swim regularly. Finally, the most puzzling thing to me is that nobody will just bluntly tell me: it will probably stay. Everyone seem to have a faith that tinnitus is transitory. It seems like there is no good statistical data on how successful those stretches are... though I suppose if it were efficient the whole world would follow the example. If anyone have any observations or experience with that ex-USSR-style system - please drop a line.
