      I have tried countless natural remedies, the most recent was Tinnitus 911, and was getting ready to buy a different one but I started looking for reviews and came across this site. I read the reviews on Synapse XT and Silencil and turns out those are scams according to most as well. I can't find anything on RevitaEar. Anyone heard of that or have a review?

      Anyway, my tinnitus is CONSTANT high pitched ringing in both ears. I've been to an ENT a couple of times to monitor if they think it's getting any louder, as I think it is, but they said it was very minimal.

      Bottom line, has anyone out there anywhere had ANYTHING that has ACTUALLY worked? Whether it's medication, a certain CBD oil, lifestyle or dietary changes. What's working?

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Microsuction / Additional Acoustic Trauma in Close Proximity
      Benzodiazepines like Xanax work for me but you can only use them every so often. If you use them more than that you will develop tolerance/addiction.

      Tinnitus can be complex as it can be caused by many things. The most common is exposure to loud noise, typically brought on by listening to music through headphones at too high a volume. Other forms of noise exposure can be responsible: attending clubs, concerts, playing music in a band or working in a noisy environment. The remedies you seek to try and find relief some may help others may not. In order to get the best help for yourself you need to find out what caused the onset of your tinnitus in the first place as this is important.

      Once you know this then you're able to look towards treating it which may require specialist help with an Audiologist that practices treatment for tinnitus and management of the condition. This can involve counselling, sound therapy, medication, relaxation therapy or a combination of all four. As I have said exposure to loud noise is one of the most common causes of tinnitus. This is followed by hearing loss, stress and TMJ. Some medications can cause it to increase. If you use headphones/earbuds then I advise you not to use them even at low volume, as you risk the tinnitus getting worse.

      You have had tinnitus for quite some time and many people habituate to it which can take up to 2 years or more. Some people find habituation difficult and that's the reason I've advised you see an Audiologist that specialises in tinnitus treatment - if you have been seen at ENT and your Doctor hasn't detected anything untoward within your auditory system including hearing loss that can cause tinnitus, then you should see the health professional I've mentioned.

      All the best

      Wow! Thank you so much! That is extremely helpful.... I do believe the cause was loud noise from previous careers, to not wearing ear plugs at concerts, drag races, even riding motorcycles without a helmet is extremely loud. I will definitely try to seek help from an audiologist that specializes in tinnitus and see what the recommendations might be.
