      Hello. I have suffered with balance and noise for a number of years had Labryinthitis 4 times from age 22. I had a major car crash, was trapped for 4 hours and lost consciousness multiple times during the experience. Since then tinnitus 24/7 on varying levels. Also balance issues but have to a point retrained my brain to om a level cope to point I was able to return to work. However last year I had a full hip replacement which went well except I suffered nerve damage. I still have numb areas and areas of massive over sensativty and pain. The constant pan has meant some of my coping mechanisms for tinnitus are flagging.

      That's good news man! By the way, how come you never upped the dose to 3000mg per a day? I might try that dosage to see if it does anything.

      Because my neurologist was not of this advice. Over 3000mg is for epileptic fit!

      Ah, ok. Well, I may try that dosage, to see if it does anything for tinnitus. Might be worth it.

      You can try, it is a safe med but it is always better to be followed by a specialist who know your story and body reactions!. On me (but i have a different story and clear diagnosys of tinnitus) there wasn't effect on tinnitus. "only" the strange slow disappearing of H after 10 days and definitely after 30 days. now i can RIDE!!

      Well, guess he could always try nortriptyline as that's useful for nerve pain and can help reduce tinnitus.

      Notryptiline is an old TCAS hard antidepressants. Before use drugs is always better done instrumental examinations. Probably he don't know that exist new techniques of neuroimaging for pain!

      Sorry life has been a tad hectic. Only real test for pain was Neurophsiology assessment. He zapped my leg and foot to see responses, to get a true comparrisson he did other leg it was like riverdance om speed. He also put elctrodes about 6 cm into muscles.
