      With all due respect you sound more like a doctor promoting his practice rather than a patient. What lay person knows anything about billing codes? I find your posting suspicious to say the least.

      Isn't scientifically too late for coticosteroids like prenisolone and methylprednisolone few years after onset..?

      Too late to repair the damage done by trauma. Still works for inflammation.

      Yes, but 1MW didn't wrote that he has any inflammation. That's why I asked.

      My T cause is unknown ...
      10 hours after 16mg methylprednisolone and my T is 0/10 and i have no H and no reactive T.
      To me corticosteroids work 100% but the result is temporary.

      Would this treatment help me? I have some high frequency hearing loss from 6-8khz. 30db and 40db in that range in one ear with the loud tinnitus.

      This all occurred mid December. It's now March. It's within 90 day window. Will this cure me? I'm near Tennessee.

      Could the new over the counter Lidocare patch work for tinnitus?

      This is so exciting!
      I'm also not sure of my cause(but I do highly suspect of benzos) maybe I can give it a try. I really wonder you still use it.

      I'm sorry to say I'd heard enough at "Shea Clinic." I know they've built a massive business that draws people from all over the world, but after two tympanoplasties that I've come to believe were totally unnecessary, I'm done with the Doctors Shea.

      Hi everyone,

      I was wondering if an intratympanic dexamethasone injection with lidocaine, for example done at the Shea Clinic, could still help after 11 months?

      Probably it will only help in an acute phase and I did an infusion therapy with cortisone already and that did not have any effect, so I am not sure if this will have any benefit.. but i just want to do something against it :/

      Is it complete nonsense??

      @mrfixit38671

      How long did you have your T already when you did that treatment?

      @Christian78

      Do you know the cause of your T? And how long did you have it already when you did the treatment? And are you feeling a bit better? :)

      Some people get total temporary relief with steroids, other people just get worst tinnitus.
      It's a dice roll.
      For me, it's a 5-15% reduction so I don't bother at all (not the intratympanic procedure, intramuscular or pill).

      @undecided

      So best case scenario would be temporary relief? Or do you know people where the effects are long term as well? Uhh I don't know if I shall do it.. tried Cortisone already via infusion.. and that didn't help unfortunately, but didn't make it worse either. Probably I am too late for it anyway :(

      Tinnitus Since:
      10 years
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Probably brought on by my military career in flight operatio
      I had the procedure done in March 2016. The difference in my procedure and one described earlier was that I was put to sleep and woke up in recovery and had about an hour left to lie there on my side. I only had one ear done, my right.

      They say that our ailment is not hereditary but, I have to differ from that belief. I have it, my mom has it and my great grandmother had it. My younger sister is developing ringing in her ears. My mom has suffered for over forty years (hearing loss, ringing, vertigo, nausea) and when an episode hits she is incapacitated. My dad has to carry her to the bed because she cannot walk on her own and it can last for days. She is 75 and quit driving about five or six years ago because she never knew when an attack would occur. Other than this she is in good health.

      The last ten months have been her best over the last 40 years. When I went to the Shea Clinic I was in one room having the procedure and she was in the next room having it done. We both have been vertigo free since the procedure but suffer from balance problems occasionally. I have found that even though the vertigo is not experienced I still suffer symptoms. When I would have an episode I would have trouble focusing and very tired and worn out.

      I still have the ringing and significant hearing loss in my right ear.

      Does this work for patients with noise induced trauma such as loud music?
