      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Noisey Lifestyle. Increase from infection.
      Depends on severity for me.



      Currently I will wait for drugs to come into market. Maybe pop NAC and prednisone in case of worsening.

      Month ago? I was willing to find a doctor that would prescribe me trobalt and try it.

      I wouldnt bother with TRT or CBT personally. Just not interested in them.

      Have to agree, depends on the severity.

      How it was on onset, would've done almost anything to make it stop. Now im perfectly fine waiting for a drug to come out, as long as my current level doesnt worsen. As each days passes I get more sure of myself that I should probably not risk a needle in my ear and the potential of the gel messing up my ears even more (Am101). Will probably end up waiting for the first pills similar to Trobalt to come out, unless things take a turn for the worst, then AM 101 will be worth the risk.

      Totally agree with you TRT and CBT are for people with mild tinnitus.

      You have mild tinnitus right? You class it, as that, right? Just need to make sure. AM-101 is risky, as for some it's made it worse and other made it better, it's a risk, isn't it? Risk taking.

      Ya, I would consider my current T mild compared to what some others report having. Seems to get a bit lower/more bearable every other day or two.

      Well, don't worry, just wait for drug treatments we are so close, so don't risk worse tinnitus.

      A couples years ago when I first got it, I probably would have taken any drugs to make it stop, needle or pills, whatever.

      But now I wouldn't take a thing even if something did become available.

      Is that due to Habituation, or did the volume actually lower?

      I don't think the volume lowered... I simply don't hear it as often as I used to. I hear it now because I am thinking about it. But once I start on with my day, I forget all about it and don't hear it much. I think anxiety and thinking about T so much makes it so much worse.

      It's strange, it's almost like once you really, truely stop caring about it, that's when it starts to really go away/not be noticable anymore.
