      I'd like to hear from people who are fully cured, not habituated.

      When it went away, how did it change? Did the tone change? Or did the volume just lessen to nothing? How long did it take and what was the cause of your tinnitus?

      I am into 3 weeks of noise induced tinnitus and it's gone through a lot of changes. The majority of it now is a hiss (among other tones that come and go). Some days are louder than others. Today was a loud day and I'm feeling discouraged.

      I just want to know what it was/is like for it to go away. Just the flick of a switch or gradual changes into nothing?

      Thank you.

      I'm not totally cured, but I can say for certain that it is not a flick of a switch, or linear.

      heavy earwax buildup
      Mine is almost (99.5%) cured after 31 months, and it is a very slow progress. I sometimes hear very very low hissing when I go to bed. Most of the time I don't know I have tinnitus.

      Thanks Chester. Could you tell me about how you got it, and roughly when you started noticing improvements/ what changes you took note of?

      Thank you

      Too much Aspirin, combined with loud noise.

      I'm talking about since I went to Korea earlier this year and got a literal assload of bone marrow and PRP injected into my ears.

      My neck always get super tight and I’m not sure if it’s stress related or not and I’ve had tinnitus with it now for 7 weeks. Does anyone has suggestions of things that might have worked for them. My ears right side is worst with sound.

      So far the only thing I've found that has positive or negative effects on my tinnitus is sleep. I never get 8 hours straight, but if I stay in bed and re-fall asleep the cumulative time helps.

      I've also started on an antidepressant/sleep aid called trazodone. Helps me stay asleep 6 hours like clock work so far, although I have a lot of catching up to do from 6 weeks of not sleeping well at all.

      Sure does seem to lower the volume though.

      That and staying hydrated/fed.
