Hi all. I apologise for the multiple posts - I'm just trying to find a solution that produces long term benefits. I seem to spend my entire day reading about tinnitus, trying to understand journal articles that are far to specific, researching possible cures (yes, I know, they don't exist). I've read a few posts by you all and I'm more confused now than I was before I started. I'm not particularly smart, damn! (1) Is there a treatment you can do on your own? My partner has made movies so he knows about mixing sounds and stuff like that which I do not understand either. (2) I've heard you can get hearing aids which act as/are maskers. What are the most popular (and effective) ones, and what do they look like. I do have a very slight hearing loss from 8-10kHz (3) I'm starting Neuromonics in the new years (ive been waiting for months. stupid Australia is so far away). I was pretty much just told that it's going to work, but since very few of you actually post about the successes of Neuromonics my hopes are shattered before I've even started (4) What exactly IS Neuromonics? How does it work? I can't find anything that actually tells me how it is effective This is what I think: Tinnitus can occur when you have slight hearing loss because your neurons have no input at that frequency so they overcompensate my misfiring. Correct or incorrect? Treatment for tinnitus is to play relaxing music to calm your limbic system and ANS, along with playing the frequencies of your tinnitus, to stop your neurons misfiring. Correct or incorrect Thanks Nina PS: Also, I have a copy of my hearing test and it says "tinnitus frequency" 9KHz, but when I listen to You Tube sounds at 9kHz it does not match. In fact there is no frequency that matches. It's like an old style telephone ringing, not one particular frequency PPS: Does habituating mean you dont care about the sound anymore or does it mean you cant hear the sound anymore?
