      I have just copy and pasted my message to another member as I realise now just how important success stories really are.

      I just wanted to let you know that a couple of years ago my husband perforated his ear drum by causing pressure with his finger in his ear (he had fluid in there after a shower). He had tinnitus for a couple of weeks and hearing loss that recovered very slowly over the course of a year and a half although he is still VERY hard of hearing in that ear.....no tinnitus now though!

      I also know two other ladies one of which woke up with it one day with no known cause and had it change sounds very frequently daily until it started to fade out and she woke up with it gone just after 6 months had passed! It hasn’t come back and this was quite a few years ago. The other lady is my sons drama teacher who had to have her ear removed, the ear canal made double the size and an operation on the little bones in her ear and then her ear sewn back on. She had reactive tinnitus that happened over people talking which she said was very overwhelming but 6 years after her operation it just stopped!

      Actually there’s also three others all in the army that I know through my husband and all three had tinnitus from being on the ranges and out in Afghan and they all said over the course of a few months it just lessened until it completley went away too. I just think it is very encouraging to hear of these people and even more so for me as I know them.

      I just want to add something really annoying to me in all honesty!

      So my husband got back from a stag do to Prague at the weekend on Monday night. He had flown back with a cold and blocked ears and his ears were ringing. On Thursday evening we were watching a film in bed when he started laughing! I asked him what was funny and he said the ringing in his ear was really loud. Needless to say by Sunday his ear had stopped ringing leaving me ridding solo in this nightmare once again. I love him and all but Im a bit pissed that I can’t be as laid back as him as I’m sure this would have gone by now otherwise. Oh well
