My name is Sophie.My tinnitus started on January 19, 2012. I was watching republican presidential debates when I started hearing some hissing or ringing noises in my ears. I didn't know first what it was. Got on the internet. Learned the word. In couple of days went to see my ENT. Had wax removed. I have a history of accumulating a lot of wax. T didn't go away. The doctor said millions of people have it, just live with it. I also felt nauseous in the beginning. Went to see two more ENTs, an audiologist and neuromascular dentist. The dentist said I have bad bite. I can hear clicking in my jaw. He wants to make special appliance for me to correct the bite. When I asked if it will stop tinnitus, he said he doesn't know. One ENT offered to try neuromanics therapy for $5000.00. Another offered notched music for $650.00. An audiologist said hearing aids wouldn't help me since my hearing is normal. The dentist treatment will cost $4000.00 plus. I had a head MRI, which came back normal. In the meantime I bought UST CD for tinnitus. I've been using it for 2 months. I don't see any improvement. I think I will return it before 3 months. First several weeks I was in panic. I could not stomach being this way for the rest of my life. I still can't. With time it becomes a little better. I am going to see another neuromascular dentist and another ENT in New York. She supposed to be a specialist in tinnitus. I would like to gather information and then make some choices. I am glad I found this site. People that don't have T can't understand what we are going through.
