I just wanted to say that if you are at the end of your rope and all you can envision is a sea of days with non-stop ringing, please don't give up. I have tried everything over the years including: not eating salt, accupuncture, exercise, meditation, noise machines, prayer, etc.- I finally ended up taking anti-depressants. It is the only thing in my 25 years of suffering from 24/7 tinnitus that has helped me. For me, depression goes hand and hand with tinnitus. And so until they find a REAL cure for tinnitus, I will stick with A/D's because they allow me to function and have energy to live my life.
