I'm still picking up different books on T trying to learn as much as I can on this mysterious condition. Some literature can be classified as guidance and self help books, other books takes a more medical and scientific approach. I've had some interesting days while reading books on T&H that's supposed to be written for medical personnel like GPs, ENT's etc. Some of these books are not for sale but my local library have them because of the amount of students using the facilities there. Normally the authors of books like that are either psychologists, audiologist or scientist. No wonder we meet ENT's that seems to be responding on autopilot cause I can recognize the common replies and philosophies from those books. "Don't listen to people on Internet forums" seems to be another mantra that docs are very occupied with. I actually said to one of them that I find forums to be very knowledgeable cause we share first hand experiences, something I can NEVER get at an ENTs office. Also, I've heard so much nonsense from medical personal on T&H that I actually value the right forum higher than many docs on the topic. ALL ENTs and GPs are trash talking Forums so I guess they read the exact same books that advice medical personnel to avoid forums - perhaps they will be shocked to find that their own theories are crap? Maybe they would discover that some T patients have made progress on the basis of their own stubborn treatment concepts. I'm so sick of calling a large hospital asking if they can offer Hyperbaric medicine and getting "that does not work, so don't waste your time" kinda response. So if I say: "Well, I'm reading a quite promising new test report from China now about Hyperbaric treatments against T" they always dismiss it as dangerous and not proven etc. Many of them haven't even heard about it! And that is disappointing cause they are the ones that really should educate themselves on matters like that. But no, hey just dismiss EVERYTHING they don't know of as snake oil. Even if it actually does provide relief for some T types. They don't seem to be willing to kill some darlings and produce some new alternatives - cause the book doesn't allow it! Tomorrow Im having my ENT assessment number 2, mainly to be referred to another audiologist that have said she is willing to take my T&H case. I'm going to keep on talking good about forums, perhaps they should register with a profile themselves? For what I know there could be some unfaithful servants of the ENT association that sneaks around here incognito.
