      Huh,

      "Since tinnitus and vertigo are usually one-sided, it's less than ten minutes until you get relief."

      Tinnitus is way more often on both sides (bilateral) than on one side (unilateral).

      And I don't believe one bit of this lymphatic voodoo... It's insulting to even implicate that tinnitus could be helped by draining the lymph nodes. It's not like the most common cause of tinnitus (loud noise exposure) can be explained by lymph nodes...


      My 2 cents.. :sleep:

      Personally I'm open to all this stuff as it may be that something which sounds quite unlikely but could prove to be the most effective. I really believe if enough of us Tinnitus sufferers do alot of alternative research and use abit of creativity there is a great chance we will discover something potentially incredible. Not saying Tinnitus is likely to be helped by lymph drainage but I think if the cure was obvious it probably would already have been discovered. Therefore I personally believe it could be something which is not immediately obvious.

      Yes, Markku - I can see your point.

      Since there are dozens of reasons for the symptoms, some may get some relief from this kind of self therapy. As I stated above, I do this regularly and I still have the tinnitus. However, we just can't rule out any bit of information we can find that might help just ONE person.

      I am scouring the web looking for remedies that may help certain kinds of tinnitus symptoms that are not obvious marketing ploys. I appreciate your forum as a means to expose them as they are not readily available for all.

      I am not hopeful that a drug will be found anytime soon. I am also not a proponent of surgery usually. I have had three in my life though. I don't find that waiting around for some pill is the answer either. This miracle pill may have a side effect that will cause another forum or two to pop up to find a cure for another different bodily issue! Who the heck knows with drugs??!!

      I know of a doctor that had surgery (in the brain area) and he still has his tinnitus. I see him about once a month at my business. Part of the nerves that help him balance were removed as well. He has to live with that for life.

      This is the routine I do. Believe me.... when you are blocked in the lymph system, these points hurt! I massage them especially hard and then the next day or two they are no longer sore when massaged.

      Just had a neck massage involving lymphatic drainage. Helps lower my t every time. I think it has to do with helping blood circulation, but also relaxing areas leading to the Dorsal Cochlea Nucleus - the first synaptic station of the Central Auditory Cortex that has been linked with overfiring of neurons and t.

      I had a lymphatic drainage massage, and my left ear (which had been blocked for months) actually popped open a few times afterwards. I have been doing at-home massage on myself, and have had some success with my ear popping. (I have had Eustachian tube dysfunction for the past 4 months).

      I don't know
      About 8 years ago I was diagnosed with Lymphedema; lymph fluid that does not drain properly. This happened shortly after my 4th major operation. I have professional lymph draining massages & although they do help drain my lymph fluid and I feel generally better after the massage; the T does not go down.

      Calin: The GLYMPHATIC system drains and clears waste from your brain during sleep....INCLUDING GLUTAMATE! This is well researched and new information. Personally, I believe this is key in pulsitile T. Astrocytes (a form of glial cell) also control fluid build up which might be why we get temporary silence after pressing on the back of our heads or near our ears. Please check out the glymphatic system instead of lymphatic system. I think you will be amazed and are on the right track about fluid and waste build up.....but the first video is absurd and hokey, doesn't physiologically make any sense.
