      My tinnitus started just about a year ago, as far as being constant. I have also recently been diagnosed with Meniere's Disease because I have recurring bouts of vertigo. The current bout has gone the longest, at just over three weeks and I've noticed the high pitch tone is now much louder. I actually didn't realize I had tinnitus until I started researching the causes and treatments for Meniere's and it appears mine is a result of the tinnitus.

      At this point, I'm just looking for possible cures or methods of just dealing with it and "dialing it down". Although I'm not positive what the source of my tinnitus is, I suspect it's due to clenching my jaws...A LOT, especially when I sleep. Just started wearing a guard, which did actually provide some minor immediate relief.

      I found this site while looking for information on Neuromonics and sound therapy. I'm thrilled and amazed at the wealth of information and the opportunity to learn from others who have had to deal with this situation.

      Welcome to the forum. If your T is from the jaw issue, perhaps you have TMJ? You can get a specialist to examine if you have issue with TMJ. As far as cure, there isn't really a universal drug or method that works for every one. But if you read the success stories, you will see people can get relief from T or cured from it by various means, depending on the cause of the T. You can search TT threads for discussions on TMJ symptoms. Again welcome to the forum.
