      Any ideas if an omega supplement would be any use?

      I haven't read anything in terms of using omega for T, but seeing T is related to something in the brain, I'm wondering if it would be worth starting a supplement?

      Probably doesn't do anything for tinnitus, but is quite recommended otherwise for most people (since few get enough omega 3s through diet). Those with blood thinning medication etc. should use caution with omega supplements - better to ask one's doctor if in any doubt about their suitability.

      Thanks @Markku. Thought that would be the case. I have a bottle here which my nutritionist gave me a few months ago and just wondering if it would do anything

      I'm not sure about this. I eat about 2 spoons measurement of flax seeds everyday. So far, I haven't had any problems with them and they don't seem to affect my T in any way.

      Hi all, i'm now trying Omega 3 supplements, has this worked for anyone? This reason i'm trying, well i always get pressure in the front of my head, tired eyes and fatigue with my T, if the T isn't so bad then neither are the other symptoms. A trigger for my T , it can be loud noise but also when my eyes are working, like when on the computer or driving. The T specalist i am seeing can make no link between my eyes and the T, had eyes tested numerious times and are healthy. But because of this pressure feeling this is why i'm trying Omega 3 as its an anti inflammatory. I also have a long standing back problem, which i'm hoping O3 might help with as well. I'd welcome anyone's thoughts on this, thanks

      p.s should point out i hate fish and haven't eaten it since the 1970s, so i would virtually have no epa/dha, and so in turn have a massive omega 6/ omega 3 imbalance, which i hear is not a great thing
