      Hi
      I know that what I am going to write will sound like voodoo and black magic, but it works for me

      I take a deep breath and then hold it, for as long as I can

      I concentrate and try to "inflate' my head so there will be pressure on my ears

      I do it 2 or 3 times, one after the other

      And it worked for me every time I do it. No kidding
      You should try it
      You have nothing to lose

      Let me know what happned

      Ephraim

      I passed out and knocked myself unconscious as I fell onto the corner of my desk. When I got up I found I'd blown my ears inside out and I had nasty gash on the side of my head. While unconscious I missed an important phone call, which I wouldn't have been able to take since I'd smashed my phone as I fell. I knew I'd smashed it because the shards from the screen were embedded in my leg, and I was bleeding onto my new trousers.

      OK, I'm kidding. How long does it last when you do this? Tell us more about yourself... :)

      Hi

      That was funny. You really scared me.
      Anyhow, I am a retired doctor in biology. Worked on plant hormones
      and now enjoy my retirement.
      I usually do this "treatment' 2 to 3 times. I think it works because it does something to the ear passages.
      Before I posted my "report' I tried my treatment a few times, and they always worked.
      You have to believe in it and take it seiously. I always try to apply pressurein into my head while holding my breath
      Usually I do it at night when I go to sleep, the time when the ringing is worse. It always surprise me that the ringing stops..

      Good luck

      Hope tou will get better

      All the best

      Ephraim

      It's fascinating. It makes me think you're almost passing out. Or, it's similar to the effect I can get when I clench my teeth and grimace; I can make it sound a lot louder (so the converse, I suppose). I'm really glad you've found something that works for you . I will try it, when I'm strapped in somewhere safe

      Best regards
      DD

      PS Gashes are healing nicely

      sorry it didnt work for me, but i got a remedy for you

      i promise if you listen to this 5 minute music video by dr john the night tripper

      (who, by the way, was inducted into the rock and roll hall of fame several years ago)

      during those 5 minutes your tinnitus will go away...there is no product being sold here...this is entertainment

      and a powerful diversion which will actually alleviate your tinnitus

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Signs seem to point to head/ neck injury!
      You know, this actually does work for me if I need a break. It only lasts for like a few seconds. Then eventually, I need to pop my ears again lol.
