      I'm not sure, but i think it was for about 3 monts. It was from a spinal fusion in the neck. He went to physio for it. I'm going to physio for tinnitus too and it helps. Did you get it from surgery too?

      I think, that the base of my T is my ear surgery, but after a exposure to loud noise, i had a permanent T.

      If i understand right, you are talking about apple vinegar? I can confirm it works wonders for your blood vessels(cholesterol) and other things. If taken regulary for a longer time, half an hour before eating(on empty stomach). Mixed with some warm water is best. You can add some honey too, if you can't stand the taste.

      But there is a catch. You should be using only a NATURAL vinegar. Not that from the most groceries. I am buying BIO vinegar from a woman, i know that is making it's own without chemistry. Because the thing they sell in bottles can be quite carcinogenic if taken for a long time that way.

      Hope that info helps someone.

      @Lebber hi your family member that had the spinal surgery do you know what theirs sounded liked? Was it in their head and high pitched? I had a lumbar puncture and my T started 5 days after that’s the only thing I can think that caused mine

      I have no idea what his sound was like. But wat he told me that despite it was awfull he didnt care to much. Because the doctor told him its normal to have symptoms from such surgery and that it usually goes away when the wound heals. He didnt stress much over it and i think that is what made it go away.

      Make sure to take good care for yourself in order to recover well. If i can give one tip then its dont stress. Why? When you have surgery or injury there is often some inflamation going on. Stress activates adrenaline and cortisol that in turn supresses thyroid function and the thyroid is basicly your imune system against inflamation.

      So you have an excuse to do the things you like ;)

      Yeah it's hard not to. What calms my mind is to think of it as just a sound that my body makes, instead of a horrible ilness or whatsoever. But it does takes time to not react to it anymore

      My T is constant ringing and pretty much the same. :( It's been 8weeks and it's the same. Somehow these days it's increasing I feel because earlier I used to feel it's less in silent rooms now I feel I can hear much louder in silent rooms. I am not trying to panic much. It wakes me up from sleep like 4-5 times even with masking.

      Your tinnitus is so new. It will take at least 3~4 months to get to the point where you start to ignore it. Hope it will not last that long for you. I felt much better after passing month number 3.

      @anusha Hang in there my friend.Here is what i tried in my one month journey
      Apple Cider Vinegar(three times)
      Vitamin b12
      Ginkgo biloba
      Fenugreek seeds
      Ashwagandha (Helps me sleep really good).
      Out of all the above i feel ACV has helped with my T to reduce the volume.I barely hear it during the day now.
      I suspect mine is a ETD related .Your anxiety is increasing your T.Stay strong and concentrate more on the better things in life.We can conquer this.

      A little bit of positivity from T:
      I cracked an interview and got a job offer because only studying and working is diverting me from my T. So I took this to my advantage and applied to a job and landed having an offer. I read somewhere in this support group when I first joined focus on things which would distract you. So, I took that advice :)

      I am very calm when I am outside as I hear it very less but when I am home I hear it clearly and continuously. I always need to have masking. My response to T is still emotional. Not as emotional as in December my 1st month. I am hanging in there. Sometimes I feel I can fight this sometimes I feel lost. I am glad to hear that ACV helped you. I will try that. I can do anything to calm my T. Especially its louder during bedtime or when I lay on bed to sleep.

      I did try chamomile mint tea and that calms my T a bit.

      Thank you again for mentioning things that helped you.

      Hi anusha,

      Five and a half month after the onset. I woke up one day in mid March 2017 and realized that the hissing was not there anymore.

      I am sorry I tried to read previous pages. You mentioned that you used ACV. Did you take any precaution or medication or tried any diet other than that.

      I started using ACV with mother as read from this chain. I am curious if anything other than that you did might have worked towards diminishing the sound of T.

      Congratulations to you on being T free.

      Nope. I never used AVC but I posted 2 pictures of it. At first I avoided coffee, salt and cheese but later found out that my tinnitus was not reacting to anything. No matter it was food or other external sound such as fire alarms , subway , movie theaters etc.

      I read about the apple cider vinegar treatment on Earth Clinic website. Drank that foul stuff for 3 months with no change. It is an anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory, though, so I can see a potential connection.

      More info on the Earth Clinic article about tinnitus, including other remedies.

      I don't want to be pessimistic, but I'm still a strong believer that T actually going away is really rare and not as usual as people make it to be. Everytime you ask people or doctors, it's always that they have heard stories or read studies that it has gone away, but never really met anyone who's T actually went away. I'm just saying this because I met yet another doctor recently and she told me the same thing that I have hope of it going away, but then when I asked her if she actually knew someone whos did, she reversed and took back the whole deal and told me that she meant that it will fade enough not to bother me. So yeah, they just like to give you false hope so you won't go insane and your stress won't make it worse.

      Sure I believe there are some people whos T went away and they just won't post about it. But at the same time we live in the age of social media and people talk about everything. If you really get something life changing as T and get healed from it, we really would hear about it first hand more often. That's just my two cents.

      the fraction that gets to hear silence again is between 20% (studies of seniors) and 70% (studies of young soldiers who got T as a result of one gunshot and who got HBOT treatment).

      The only thing that is being covered in medical school about tinnitus is that there is no cure. The doctors are not told about those studies that looked at the likely progression of the disease. And of course the set of people they get to see are "self-selected" - only the people who visit them are people who are bothered by T. Those who get to hear silence again don't visit ENTs again, and they don't bring it up - why would they?
      Few people care about other people's ailments. People understand this, and only talk about their medical problems with their family members.
