      I am in a high-pressure technical position for a Fortune 50 company. I am running again, I meditate - something I have never done before. The key to me seems to be to get a good nights sleep. So yeah I in some ways tinnitus is forcing me to make healthier choices. I still have days where I where I don't sleep well and struggle a lot though. But I cope.

      @GBB, I noticed you tried many possible solutions. Can you please list them and advise what has worked for you?

      I am on Keppra/Lamictal and Pramipexole now. I've regained a lot of agency (I can shower and drive for short bursts, and listen to tv/music without any concern at all). House fans still seem to trigger spikes for me.

      Lamictal in particular seemed help.

      Still debating if I can take more demanding jobs but many days are more enjoyable now.

      Sleep remains a hard aspect to manage as I still need drugs (Mirtazapine) and I hate being woken up by my tinnitus every single morning, and often require afternoon naps, which are also shallow in quality due to the noise.

      No, I dropped that. It didn't seem to have any effect for me.

      Did you end up going to StemCells21? I also have pain hyperacusis plus tinnitus and am probably going to go to StemCells21 as soon as I recover a little from this current setback.

      I didn't find any effect from it either but am starting it again now just because I'm going through a bad setback.

      What did you make of the peptides you tried in the past?

      None helped unfortunately - I can’t recommend them.

      @GBB, you say you can listen to music and TV now. How long, from onset, were you able to do this?

      Also, did your sound distortions subside? Does music sound ok?

      I've been taking BPC-157 and TB-500 orally for 3 or 4 days now and haven't noticed anything except my ankle injury being better. I ordered Epithalan, Pinealon, Semax and P21 to try out too. I don't have high hopes for them to be honest.

      Actually the pain in my ear is a lot better now but it was getting better normally anyway so it's very hard to tell if the peptides helped or not. I do think there's a good chance the BPC-157 and TB-500 could help with my TTTS since that's partly a muscle issue. And maybe that's what was causing some of the pain too.

      Those are not your two options -- get this high paid job - or go drug yourself in a tiny home.

      You should choose the middle route, you will try to do this job, if you can't, you will adapt and do some other job that works for you and you will be alright either way, you are never going to drug yourself to deal.

      Also, don't spend money on tinnitus, it won't help. Maybe a few hundred or thousand, but in general you need to accept and move on and get healthy.
