      Yeah, but maybe you could still fix it by fixing the ear?

      It's like the triangle of fire. To get fire, you need 1) High temperature 2) Something that can burn and 3) Oxygen

      Remove one, and the fire goes away.

      Fix the ear, T goes away

      Fix the b rain, T goes away (but whatever caused T in the ear is still happening, but the brain is fixed so it doesn't respond, and create T


      Just a theory obviously lol

      This is also just proof that chronic T is not impossible to be cured... Something happened in his brain when he had a
      Stroke which made the T dissapear... This would have never happened if the brain "memorizes" T....

      You could be correct and really we have no way of knowing. Personally, I think its damaged cells/nerves in the auditory cortex. It reminds me of an experience I had in college where lightning struck the telephone box outside of my apartment. That surge of energy traveled through my telephone wires and into my computer frying the modem. Now the telephone box outside was damaged and needed to be repaired by the telephone company, but my computer would still not have been able to connect to the internet if I had not replaced the modem.

      I honestly think its these damaged cells in the brain which cause this phantom sound. The stroke this guy had most likely finished the damaged cells off.

      Yes, but your modem and wires don't have the ability to spontaneously adapt plastic ally to a change in the system. Your brain does.

      The brain can adapt after cells die and other cells can perform the function of the cells that died. But what about cells that are damaged but don't die? Could it be malfunctioning cells that cause the sound?

      It could be. This is a lot of supposition here, without a lot of stuff to back it up. So my opinion is just that, I guess.

      I know a guy who had chronic pain in his right arm. After his stroke, he lost control over the right side of his body. Wouldn't you know, the pain went away.

      Pfft I got you beat, I had 6 big macs just this morning. Plus two quarter pounders. To be honest though, I considered what would be worse at one point, having to listen to this incessant noise for the rest of my life or only having the use of one side of my face. I almost chose the stroke.

      I recently ate 5 Baconators from Wendy's for dinner. My heart gave out shortly thereafter and I woke up 3 days later in the hospital. As I was laying in the bed somewhat disoriented, a beautiful woman riding a flaming Harley Davidson crashed through the wall. She gave me a man card for having passed the test handed down to me by the gods. We made love for several hours straight after that, at which point she peeled away on her Harley Davidson. It was the greatest day of my life.
