Hi all, I thought I would tell you about a product I've just purchased from Amazon for very low cost. £6 (roughly $10) It consists of 5 small balloons and a plastic "nozzle" for want of a better word. What you do is place the end of one of the balloons over the nozzle and hold the nozzle up to one of your nostrils. Hold the other nostril shut by pressing against it with a finger. Then take a deep breath, and with your mouth closed, blow as hard as you can through the nozzle to inflate the balloon to about the size of a grapefruit. Keep your mouth closed and swallow. Then take the nozzle away and let the air come out of the balloon. Repeat this with the other nostril. Do this 3 times per day for about 2-3 weeks. There are various causes of tinnitus and this will only work for tinnitus caused by some sort of ear or eustachean tube dysfunction, which is what I think mine is caused by. I have tried the Vasalva technique and notice that my right eardrum pops but my left eardrum will not budge (which is the ear mainly affected by Tinnitus). My Tinnitus has been pretty bad yesterday and today - hissing with a high-pitched whistle over the top. Last night I had a really bad night's sleep because of it so was very low this morning. I started using the Otovent device yesterday and noticed that it did partially pop my left ear which is a good sign that things are starting to move. You may think this is yet another "scam" device making all sorts of wild claims and preying on desperate people. Well for such a low amount of money I am willing to give it a try, and you can use ordinary party balloons once the ones in the pack are spent so it's really just the nozzle that you are paying for. Also, please google the reviews. It has received rave reviews from lots of consumers who definitely sound genuine.

I would also be interested to hear anyone else's experience of this product. All the best.
