      Tinnitus Since:
      January 2006
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      100 percent deaf in right ear, I lost my hearing
      Hello, this is my first time on this forum. Just signed up today. I woke up one morning January 2006 completely deaf in my right ear. I am 100 percent deaf in my right ear. Nothing. Nada, zip nothing. I could take the deafness. What I can not take is the tinnitus.
      It still baffles me to this day how a deaf ear can produce so much torture! High pitched screaming. Pulsating. Pain, whooshing sounds all at the same time. The more sounds introduced around me like going to a restaurant for example makes the tinnitus sounds get LOUDER. It never stops 24/7. I go to sleep and wake up with it.
      I gave up on doctors. One specialist finally told me, "I can't fix you, only GOD can."
      So my attitude became why waste my precious hard earned dollars on doctors that tell me blatantly I can't fix you there is no cure?
      I wonder how many people on here have tinnitus due to unexplained hearing loss, which by the way I was also told the same thing, "I can't fix you, no cure, and don't know what caused it in the first place."
      I put Tasmanian Devil as my photo because that is how tinnitus makes me feel.

      Tinnitus Since:
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Surgery performed for Perilymp Fistula
      Hi Folks...First Timer...Here.
      I've had Tinnitus since 1991 after surgery for Perilymph Fistula (holes in oval windows) from Military Tour
      Like most, I've learned to live with it. Tried it all. Currently, I'm receiving treatment from an Upper Cervical Doctor here in Dallas. After the first treatment, I was driving along 13 hours after treatment, and realized my volume had subsided a bit. I asked myself out loud, wow is this really going to happen? Go to Youtube and read about Upper Cervical Doctor Treatments for Tinnitus, Light headiness, Vertigo etc..etc.. There are actually 2 types of NUCCA Doctors. One that uses a Stylist type Machine and one the uses their own hands. Some people with Pain experienced life changing on the spot, first treatment, and some experience a slow recovery...but do recover. I just watched 30 for 30 and where the quarter back for the Chicago Bears Jim McMahon was suffering from concussions....and received the same treatment and found relief. So it's not snake oil stuff. Check it out: or Google it..."Upper Cervical Chiropractors"

      Second Part of this: Lipo-flavinoids have worked for some of my friends, but not for me. I suffer with Light headiness everyday, Hypercusis (sensitivity to loud noise) and Tinnitus. My whole life is based around the condition. No pain pills for me, or any type of vaso-violators....which only makes it louder, no sodium, no caffeine for me. In other words I have to watch my diet or my conditions get worse. However, my condition is linked to my ears and my neck.
      I get a massage on my neck every Friday, Yeah! I feel like a Million Dollars....but it always returns. Your Neck muscles are connected to your ear components...(read about it) So in the beginning it can be confusing....trying to find answers. But believe me, I have researched for year. Your Jaw or your Bite can contribute too. So the triangle to look into is Ears/Neck/Jaw. I also wear a special ear plug that allows me to hear people, but drown out loud noises and particular levels or types of sounds....that aggravate the Filli in my middle ears. I also found on Indiegogo a product being developed for my problem with sound, that will allow me to hear, but protect my every important ear filli that receives the sound, so it can heal over time. EAR BUDS

      Third: Tinnitus Terminator - Years ago, there was a guy on Youtube that developed a sound technique on his own, it was very complicated to follow, and he offered help, but still confusing how to set it up...but he had developed it for himself I believe. This is why I just ordered the Tinnitus Terminator just yesterday to try. You should study the parts of the ear, so that things you research make sense. It's all about the delicate ear components. Outer-Ear, Middle Ear, and Inner Ear. I will try using this according to the developer and post my results.


      I could write a lot more, but I start to ramble. Please feel free to ask questions, so I can give you my references so to help you in anyway. Somethings may be a waste of time for some, but help others....just like any product on the market. Good Luck

      Cause of Tinnitus:

      I went to a Chiropractor and discovered my childhood injury to my neck through X rays is the probable cause of my deafness which led to tinnitus.
      I can't be fixed. Why? The injury is from my childhood. I fell from 5 feet head first, nearly broke my neck and was sewn back up to keep from bleeding to death. No one back then thought to do X rays or they would have found a horrendous permanent injury to the bones in my neck. It took years for it to cause enough nerve damage to cause me to lose my hearing. I found out the nerves leading to your eyes and ears go through that part of your neck.
      An adjustment to my neck won't cure the bones that were horrendously injured as a child. Only God can truly fix me.
      I agree that a lot of people have received their hearing back through Chiropractor adjustments. It is true. I know some personally. But it depends on what type of injury you have. My Chiropractor finally told me nothing was going to help. All doctors have told me they can't fix me.
