      Loss of hearing and then stress and anxiety

      Not sure if anyone has noticed, but they added Tinnitus to their mission statement. Every year I contribute to the cause. Money well spent, but the fact that they now list tinnitus and not just hearing loss is a great step forward for everyone on these forums.

      Hi @RB2014 do you donate to Stanford or to some other organization, if you don't mind the question?

      Have they had any success by now or human trials?

      I too donate (Harvard and others). I agree that it could be money well spend. And it makes me feel good. :p
      I never noticed tinnitus was not on their mission statement.
      It makes sense that if scientists are able to regenerate/repair parts in the cochlea a lot of tinnitus and hyperacusis will be cured at the same time.

      Last year I made my first donation to them and plan to continue from here on out. I really never cared much about hearing loss until after I got T and I began reading about all of the work they are doing on T and hearing loss and realized that they are truly dedicated to finding a cure to both. It gives me hope that they will someday find something to help us. I'm pretty sure adding Tinnitus to their Mission statement is something new unless I missed it before.
      The contributions I made to them also made me feel better, but more importantly provide me with hope that one day I will be able to enjoy the silence I had before.

      From what I understand, they are doing the research and sharing it with anyone and everyone that will listen. They havent done any human trials and I'm not sure if they plan to.

      Thanks for your answer. I donate money to ATA, but seems to me donating straight to a University like Stanford may be a better option since we know that the money goes to a good research program.

      What is ATA?
      I donate to Action On Hearing loss, Stanford and Hearing Health foundation. Small amounts, because I am not a rich person :greedy:
      Action On Hearing Loss and Hearing Health Foundation also "sponsor" research. I hope they are all serious players in the quest for a cure.

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Neuronmodulation suggests noise induced?
      Maybe something like a collective donation all at once with everyone involved listed that donated.
      These individual donations do not really make a difference unless they're big.

      Acoustic trauma
      I do not agree. I think a lot of small donations are also great. As long as they are in large enough quantities.

      Does anyone have the donate links to the aforementioned causes?
