Hi I am here posting because I am trying to help my son, 23, who has severe tinnitus, and I wonder if anyone might be able to help answer a few questions please? We have tried tinnitus retraining therapy and our son has been wearing white noise in-ear devices for five months, with 2/3 extra counselling sessions on top. At the last visit, the therapist confirmed what our son had thought, which is that the tinnitus had not improved at all and that he was starting to feel ordinary noises more acutely. So we are very concerned as his tinnitus has been constant, unrelenting ever since it started... and is now a 9/10. It is of one pitch, I understand. Onset was alongside a neck muscle injury while weightlifting. We have seen a TMJ specialist and had botox in the face muscles which were in spasm and a splint made for wearing overnight. We have also tried massage, chiropractic work and cranial sacral therapy to improve general wellbeing, but nothing has relaxed him yet. My questions on noise therapy are: 1. Is it too early to say if the treatment is working or not? It's been 5 months of wear so far. 2. Is it correct that other noise patterns might help more e,g, fractal noises? I saw some research which indicated that they might. 3. If so, what other recommended types of noise therapy are there? I have seen notched mention too. Many thanks to you all.
