My name is Bri and I am a 63 year old semi-retired Chartered Electrical Engineer. I have had tinnitus since 1975, basically as a result of to many rock concerts and listening to loud music in my long passed youth !! This was exacerbated by a more recent incident in 2002 where I had to disable an activated car alarm in my garage which exposed me to more than 100dB for a minute or so. I am aware that there are no miracle cures and am sceptical of most "therapies", but wouldn't rule anything out. I have learned to live with my tinnitus, but it can be very loud and debilitating at times. It would be lovely to be able to switch it off and I hope that someday someone will crack the problem for all sufferers of this awful affliction. Out of interest, I have recently heard about The Tinnitus Clinic in the UK (Harley St based outfit) offering a number of treatments based on the outcomes of a detailed 90min initial assessment, including tympanometry; pure tone audiometry (PTA) and uncomfortable loudness level testing (ULL) - the latter for hyperacusis I believe. The subsequent treatments range from Tinnitus Desensitisation Therapy to their Accoustic Coordinated Reset Neuromodulation. The latter has apparently been developed at the Julich Research Centre in Germany and involves a "device" tuned to your tinnitus that retrains your hearing/brain over time to significantly reduce the level of your tinnitus if not pretty much remove it. From what I can ascertain, The Tinnitus Clinic appears to be a genuine organisation with impeccable credentials, but with associated hefty price tags for its assessment and treatments. I would be interested to know if any of the readers out there have had any experience of this organisation and its therapies and would either recommend or caution against using them??
