      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Dear friends

      I have high blood pressure. I am not sure, if this is the (main) cause of my tinnitus because there are also some other potential causes.

      Are there any success stories with lowering the blood pressure, where this killed tinnitus? Did the tinnitus go away instantly? Or did the tinnitus need more time to disappear, after normalizing of the blood pressure.

      Thank you in advance.

      @davorr I have had high blood pressure for many years but it is controlled with medication. When I first got tinnitus 20 years ago I read in tinnitus books that HB can be linked to tinnitus. I knew my tinnitus was caused by loud noise exposure. Just be careful with your blood pressure and try to keep it within the normal range.

      If you have been using headphones, attending nightclubs, concerts or the cinema where loud sounds are played, these are the likely cause of your tinnitus, if there is no underlining medical problem responsible for it.

      Pycnogenol has been shown to reduce blood pressure and improve blood flow. a study showed it to reduce associated tinnitus so maybe worth trying. I am trying at moment but I don't have high blood pressure so not sure if it will help t. 5 days and t no better.
