      Dear tinnitus sufferer

      I am living proof that tinnitus can/may be cured by electromagnetic waves or whatever it is that emanates from an (open) MRI machine. Sometime in 2011 or 2012 after a stress and anxiety causing life changing experience, I noticed that I heard the blood pumping in my left ear when everything was quiet, which was especially bothersome at night when trying to go to sleep. I saw an otolaryngologist (ENT doctor) in Manhattan where we live (New York Otolaryngology Group) and he sent me to have an (open) MRI with and without contrast done. At the MRI lab, I was put on the gurney moved under the machine's canopy and then an antenna cage was placed over my head. I actually refused the contrast fluid so the MRI was done w/o contrast but with the antenna over my head. After the procedure and when things where quiet around me, perhaps at night, I noticed that the tinnitus in my left ear that I had had for many months before I saw this specialist, was GONE. It tried only a couple of time to return mildly mostly during stressful times and was audible only at the time when going to sleep and went away sporadically. This is my story folks. I saw an ENT specialist the other day (Jan 2016) and told him of the miraculous healing by a diagnostics device that was supposed to find out what was wrong and itself became the healing agent. He answered that there was neural research being conducted about the influence of electromagnetic waves on the brain and its connection to healing tinnitus related problems. More he did not say. He had obviously never heard about an actual healing such as mine. Thank you for bearing with me, please excuse the English I am from Southern Germany originally.

      Seems like pulsatile T though. Might be different than what most suffer from.

      I think that kind of MRI experience is the spark that spawned the TMS devices to treat depression and anxiety. It was noticed that depressed patients often felt better after an MRI. I see a doc who offers TMS but doesn't have a treatment protocol for tinnitus yet but as soon as he does, I'm going for it.
