      Hi Folks,

      Anyone aware of a posting / document / book that outlines approaches for long-term tinnitus management? Not thinking about shorter-term / specific actions, but more on a general guide to how to maximize quality of life with tinnitus in the long run?

      Thinking about it myself, the categories I think that a document like that should cover would be something like.


      1. Prevention of Additional Damage
      - Noise
      - Medications

      2. Management of Sound environment
      - Enriching background noise

      3. Sleep Management
      - Sleep Hygiene
      - Sleep Monitoring - Quantitative / Qualitative

      4. Stress / Depression Management
      - HADS / Periodic assessment
      - Mental Health checkups

      5. Breakout / Spike Approaches
      - What to do during a spike / bad period

      6. Focus / Attention Management
      - Approaches to remove attention from T

      7. Diet Management
      - Evaluate any trigger
      - Supplements (if any)
      - General good diet

      8. Health and Fitness Management
      - Health checkups
      - BP / Cholesterol
      - TMJ etc
      - Periodic hearing evaluation

      9. Support and Social Management
      - Maintenance of social / friends / family
      - Engagement with local communities
      - Online Engagement
      - Network building

      10. Review and support for new therapies
      - Assessment of new approaches / Clinical Trials
      - Evaluating participation

      Cheers.
