      I have had Tinnitus since 2004. When I had two cerebral aneurysms in June 2016, the Tinnitus stopped. Whether that is due to the aneuryms, or whether it is due to the three tablets I take don't know. It is no good
      giving the tablets names, because they are in Spanish (I live in Spain).

      Give the tablet's names and we'll figure out the rest.
      I don't know if they have to be combined with twin cerebral aneurysms, that's the hard part. :LOL:

      Tinnitus since 2004? Or 2006? Which is it? What pills? Is it tonal T or pulsatile?

      Forgive me for being skeptical.

      This is great, but a "tinnitus success story" that involves the complete removal of the symptoms isn't really the intent of the "success stories" forum.

      Maybe others will disagree with me, but this is supposed to be a space where new tinnitus sufferers with little to no hope of resolution of their symptoms can find stories of people who learned how to adapt to that. Nothing needs to be written in the "success stories" forum about tinnitus cases that go away since anyone lucky enough to have this happen to them doesn't need any emotional or psychological support to reach that state. Threads like these just serve to make new tinnitus sufferers feel more unlucky.

      I disagree. From personal experience, and I suspect this is true of many others, I initially scoured the success stories section for people that actually got cured or had their tinnitus go into remission. I actually think the title "success stories" connotes (as well as denotes) people that have actually been cured of their T. While habituation is certainly considered a success, it's not success in the same way that actual remission is.

      Agree, also important to know that remission can happen and how...

      Hello Kathy. It's great that your tinnitus is gone!! Sorry about the aneurysms,though. I currently live in Spain, would you please tell us the name of the three tablets? I would then try to find out the active components and share with the rest of the forum. Many thanks.

      I strongly disagree. Knowing that Tinnitus can resolve made me feel a lot better when I first got it. This helped immensely in ultimately accepting it until it totally resolved for me the first time. Maybe it even contributed to it resolving as my stress-level reduced when I read about those stories...

      I think it depends, like with everything, on the person itself how he or she views "resolution stories". One would feel envious, the other hopeful the same happens to him or her. Habituation however is where we all eventually end up if the resolution does not happen on short terms. It is a logical outcome given the choices we have; live with it or death. Seeing as not so many people appear to choose the suicide-route (I'm glad, else it would have been news given the prevalence of Tinnitus in people), it's fairly logical to assume they "learn to live" with it in one way or another.

      While that's of course nice and such, I bet none of the "newbies" will consider that a real "success story". The long arduous psychological road to acceptance and habituation often described in those stories didn't really appeal to me back in the day, because the long-term suffering you have to go through first is still viewed as a loss. A loss of worry-free times you could have had instead if you didn't contract the condition... Reading about those stories made me feel like "Seems I have a long way of suffering to go before I can ever live with this condition, as it doesn't appear to just resolve. And then it will still get to me from time to time because it is still there!" and in fact contributed to the initial panic.

      Those new to the condition are in a very dark place and will often have thoughts similar to the one I described above.

      Personally, I would like to see more "resolution stories" as it certainly made me more accepting of my current condition. Of course that's just my viewpoint. Maybe it's a good idea to divide the Success stories in two categories; "Resolution stories" and "Habituation stories", so people can read about what they are most comfortable with?
