      I am an over 4 years suffer with severe tinnitus.

      I tried everything to help me with no success until last year when I went to a Neuro Physiologist and was evaluated.

      This will not work for everyone, but if your tinnitus is caused by unbalanced brain activity/waves which I found was my cause, Neurofeedback could be for you.

      I went through 6 months of training 2x a week over 6 months. I still have tinnitus, but the noise level is most often about 75% less and some days, I almost hear nothing like I have been totally cured.

      On my bad days I estimate noise level to be at 50% of what my bad days used to be and the spikes no longer go on for days and days. One or two at the most. I would like to share more with everybody. Maybe some of you are suffering for the same reason I was. Hoping someone may benefit like I have. Good luck.

      Thanks for Sharing! I am currently in my 4th session of Neurofeedback, and I have had some small successes. It make sense to do this therapy as Tinnitus is a brain issue. Neurofeedback specializes in brain dysfunction. I was told that my Delta waves were in a heightened state, which caused me to be half asleep-half awake throughout the day. I hope too keep having more success as the Dr. I am seeing is one of the top therapist in this field for decades. One question, are you able to manipulate your tinnitus when clenching your jaw?

      @Mikey Cliff , no nothing changes for me if I clench my jaw. Did the qEEG show that you had two anomalies at the lower back of your brain. These anomalies are common with T sufferers who have the problem due to brain activities. I went for 4o or 41 training sessions before stopping Everyone is different, but you are going to need many more sessions to effectively help you. When you stop, what you have trained your brain to do, keeps working. I have a free follow-up qEEG in April. I am anxious to see what my brain will look like then. In addition to T, I had sleeping problems and concentration problems, that I thought were caused by my T, but they were not. The reason I could never fall asleep naturally was because my brain would not allow me to fall into the first stage of sleep. I could not read a book anymore because of my visual concentration ability. I can now read again. They were unable to improve upon my audio concentration. It remains at the same level now as it was before I started the training. I have no hearing impairment (or very little because of normal age decline) but I won't always hear something someone is saying to me because my audio concentration was somewhere else. This is annoying for my husband and he doesn't understand. I am often saying what...what...and he will get annoyed and say you heard me. He came with me to all of my neurofeedback sessions and attended discussions with the Dr. so he does know I have a problem but it is annoying to him just the same. I know it is expensive, but keep it up. After you get your next qEEG, you will see if you are making enough progress to continue. What the heck, I already spent so much money on trying to cure myself, I decided to go for broke if I had to. I have found too that after 4 months of stopping the sessions, the T has become even better. This is why I am anxious to see what my next qEEG looks like and what they think. Maybe a few more sessions may even benefit me more.

      Are you doing traditional Neuro feedback or LENS neuro feedback?

      One question, are you able to manipulate your tinnitus when clenching your jaw?

      Personally, I can alter the frequency of the T by clenching jaw or moving jaw forward.
      I was told by a doctor that happens because moving your jaw around will slightly change the shape of your already irregularly shaped auditory canal and hence affect the frequency. T is still there.

      @Mikey Cliff how are you doing with your neurofeedback sessions? Also was your t caused by noise exposure? Will this therapy help t no matter what caused it?

      Hi anyone know of any nasty side effect that neurofeedback can have?
      The cost is not really a concern. But the nasty side effects are!
