      Tinnitus Since:
      It seems that nightshades contain solanine which can cause a build up of acetylcholine - a neurotransmitter.

      So I'm thinking persistent firing of the nerves etc.

      So over the next couple of of months I will eliminate them from my diet. If anyone else is or has done this I would love to hear from you. Obviously I don't expect this to eliminate the tinnitus but I am hoping for less of those heavy days when its all you can hear.

      For information, nightshades include: tomato, potato, pepper, paprika, aubergine, goji. These are all that really affect me but I think there are a few more.
