      A woman that I work with told me recently that she had had tinnitus for 5 or so years. She still worked and got on with life while having tinnitus.

      She had gone to the doctor and no one could figure out why she had it.

      One day she decided to try ear drops that you buy on the shelf in a store for ear ringing. She used it a couple of times and she says her ringing went away after having it for 5 years.

      Now she is ringing free.

      I haven’t tried it yet. Has anyone else had an experience like that?

      There are no ear drops that cure tinnitus! What was the name of the ear drops?

      She may have just had ear wax build up and the drops helped remove it.

      I think it's called Ring Relief or something like that.

      The product is safe but obviously doesn't work. I tried it and the pills. They're nonsensical snake oil. But safe.

      Wait, so how can they sell this at the pharmacy if they don't actually work? Isn't the FDA supposed to protect us from false claims? FX-322 has been shown to be safe at this point so why not go ahead and allow them to sell it? If the ear drops are legal because they're safe why does FX-322 have to go through more trials?

      Frequency Therapeutics is not for tinnitus, it's for hearing loss.

      Name of the eardrops please.

      Do you mean this one: Ring Relief® Ear Drops are homeopathic ear drops that provide temporary relief of the symptoms of tinnitus such as ringing, buzzing, or roaring in the ears, sensitivity to noise, as well as throbbing and discomfort.

      So tinnitus isn't a symptom of NIHL?

      It's all horse shit.

      The medicine will get washed down the eustachian tube and not even reach the cochlea and repair the hair cells/ribbon synapses. What is it going to do?

      Retarded statements like this need to be exposed aggressively, this community is too redpilled to deal with new comers falling for all the scams and quackery. Sad truth is the majority of tinnitus sufferers think they can find a treatment at their local pharmacy or Walmart.

      This is what happens.

      1: New comers search the allies of stores and vast corners of the internet looking for a miracle cure.

      2: They seek therapy and TRT sessions from audiologist and mental health experts.

      3: Therapist and TRT/CBT specialist tell them to stay off tinnitus forums and reading about tinnitus on the internet.

      4: It helps them avoid scams and snake oil such as "the Tonaki Tinnitus Protocol" but at the same time it prevents them from learning about actually important things like Frequency Therapeutics, Otonomy, Decibel Therapeutics, University of Michigan signal timing, Neuromod. Real scientific research meant to lower the volume of tinnitus and improve hearing is treated the same way as quackery on the internet by CBT and TRT specialists.

      5: The tinnitus sufferer stays ignorant and eventually goes back to being a normie with muffled hearing, screeching head noises and noise induced pain.

      TRT'ers need to stop dis-encouraging actual research, in fact it seems to be a very common theme for them to know nothing about tinnitus research despite being "tinnitus specialist" Palliative medicine puts them in a fixed reality where treatments will never happen.

      tinnitus in most cases is a neurological condition caused by hearing loss, curing the hearing loss should also undo the tinnitus through neuroplasticity.

      I don't know for sure what the name was. I know she mentioned it was specifically for ear ringing. She said after a few times using it the ringing was gone! But I agree there is no cure for tinnitus.

      That could had been what happened. She mentioned about going to the ENT to get her ears washed out, but said the ENT still didn’t know what was causing her ringing.

      I bet that is the ear drops she might have used!

      Does it even make it past the eardrum to get in the eustachian tubes?

      I have eustachian tube dysfunction, can ear drops reach my tubes?

      That's a different discussion.

      Not even mentioning it is based on speculation.

      Read Roland Schaette's ear plug experiments, also read what Frequency Therapeutics said. I'll have to find the info.

      Tinnitus Since:
      August 2017
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Infection
      When I first got T, like everyone, I went to the local drug store to see what they had OTC for it and sure enough picked up the lapoflavonoid pill and ear drops. The eardrops gave me a fungal infection after using it a few times. I think the natural oils in it is a breeding ground for fungus. Strangely the fungal infection caused muffled hearing and it knocked down the T. I guess it had the same effect as putting in earplugs blocking out some of the noises that flared up the T. Anyway, once the fungal infection was cleared up using antifungal drops the T was back at full force.

      odd, usually having worse hearing makes tinnitus worse.

      I have the dynamic type that matches external noises. On really bad days nothing masks it. I can hear it on top of any external noise even a jet engine. I find that on these types of bad days wearing earplugs keeps the T at a steady level until it passes. Other days the T is barely noticeable despite external noises. I can't predict tomorrow. I have tried everything and have not found any rhyme or reason why I have a level 11 and some days a level 1 or 2. I've just learned to really enjoy the days that are quiet (today being one of them thank god). Tomorrow it may remain this way or be anywhere between today and a 11.

      When I had the fungal infection (twice in the past couple of years). it muffles out the high frequencies due to inflammation of the ear canal and ear drum and both times my T has been a steady hum until the infection cleared up and I started to hear the higher pitched noises. I think inner ear infection that caused my issues has caused damage to my high range way beyond hearing tests so I show no loss when I do the tests but I can tell my bad ear has become directional for lack of a better term and slightly more sensitive. Usually when sound is hitting you from one direction, turning one ear to the sound or the other results in both ears hearing equally due to how the brain equalizes and compensates for the reduction in the ear facing away from the sound. My bad ear has lost a little of that ability to compensate I feel so when I turn my bad ear away from the source, I can hear tiny but noticeable reduction in input. This may related to outer hair cell damage as the outer cells serve to amplify the sounds. Hearing tests at the doctor's office are very basic and don't detect these types of issues so I always get the clear bill of health while I know for a fact that my left ear has some type of damage.

      Sounds like you need to be a little more selective with whom you associate with at work.

      I read the study last night and tonight I was thinking about it randomly and I think I figured out what causes tinnitus.

      Since even healthy people were experiencing tinnitus in specific circumstances tinnitus seems more of a byproduct of hearing loss let's say your left ear is at 100 and your right is at 60. Because of this imbalance your senses of balance is going to become screwed up so your brain tries to equalize this but it can't magically make the ear hear better but it may be able to turn up the gain on your damaged ear. Just like the gain on a mic as you increase auditory sensitivity you also get alot of noise sort of that static noise and similar to the noise you get with tinnitus. The study seems to follow as subjects were deaf in one ear due to plugs their ears started increase the gain to attempt to reach equilibrium.

      I wonder if you did the opposite and we're able to create a device for the damaged ear and increased the volume by some small factor the brain would then reduce the gain and cause the tinnitus to go away. But this would have to be a high fidelity device enough to tricking your brain that this was the natural sound and also maybe it's impossible as things like chewing are heard through the vibrations though your skull thus bypassing this device.
