      And then there are people like @Johnny Karate who has less head noise and no ear noise with higher dose Naltrexone.
      I always wondered if you have ever considered the LDN (Low-Dose Naltrexone) given the speculation that Meniere's Disease may have an autoimmune component?

      So you still have tinnitus all over your brain, or maybe just a tone or two in the middle part of the head? How do you cope with it? It is hard because it can't be masked properly and is felt as well.

      I'm only on 10 mg of Nortriptyline which is somewhat low - that helped the central pure tone "whistle" sounding tinnitus in the middle of my head but it did not seem to help the central "electrical" zzzz sound. But I am a low dose so I wouldn't say that's definitive answer on whether it helps with the electrical sound. I don't want to go up on the dose because it's a bit drying (throat, eyes) for me however some people don't have that issue with it.

      What would be the mechanism of Nortriptyline helping tinnitus?

      I'm mot an expert in this area and I don't want to say anything that will influence anyone's decisions to take or not take certain medications. One thing you can take away from this is that you should never want to stimulate the 5HT2A receptor as it is implicated in cause or worsening of tinnitus. This seems to be the case why some of the SSRIs make people worse (however there are some cases where people have improved tinnitus on them). This goes to show us there are still a lot of questions about medications that even the doctors dispensing them can't answer. That alone is pretty scary...

      I was reading that Nortriptyline can drive down histamine.

      I think Amitriptyline and Nortriptyline have antihistamine effects?

      I believe they do have antihistamine effects.

      You stated that your tinnitus started in your ear/s and centralised, but still hear it in your ears from time to time.

      I have always wondered what is going on with my tinnitus.

      I have a centralised gas leak/hissy sound and on really bad days, it spreads to my ears so that my whole head feels encapsulated by noise. The only part of this I can modulate to some degree is the ear hissing with noise and somatic movements, but it's not a solution, as it is only a very temporary effect.

      I am hopeful the gas leak in my head can be addressed by lowering histamine/inflammation and addressing my hormones. Beyond that, I don't know what to do?

      Does anyone know why some days my tinnitus sits in my head all day, then it will move into my ears on other days, then my whole head including my ears?

      Hi. I have read a bunch of your posts. Can you tell me how you are doing? Did you have issues with TMJ at all also with the head tinnitus? What do you think has helped the most?
