Hi, I just joined but I've had Tinnitus for over 15 years. I was told there was nothing that could be done so I've done my best to ignore it . I'm also a Type 1 Diabetic which may have been a factor in developing tinnitus I've been told. But i went to more than a few overly loud concerts as kid and spent time in the army being macho and firing weapons without adequate ear protection so maybe it started there. My hearing seems to be getting worse which makes the tinnitus worse. Which is why i'm looking for some info and hopefully some sort of treatment.
