      Tinnitus is a common symptom of benzo withdrawal. If you took benzos to cope with the anxiety from tinnitus initially you will find that an increase in tinnitus is one of the side effects of withdrawal. As time goes by you will find that the increase in tinnitus will subside.

      ssnhl/benzos/unknown
      Now I'm 95% cured, the last 10% takes more time.

      Benzos cause very serious tinnitus & hyperacusis that last a very long time after withdrawal.

      STAY AWAY FROM BENZO POISON.

      How are you doing these days?

      Just out of curiosity, how noisy are the UAE (Dubai for instance) as compared to Europe?

      I can imagine, there must be lots of traffic and construction activity in the UAE.

      Hey I’ve been taking Xanax .5 daily since my onset last year and I’ve only seen an improvement. I honestly believe it’s different for everyone.

      If you increase them you will see more improvement. The problem starts when you reduce them, it may make your tinnitus worse.

      Surely 0'5 mg can't be that harmful? Not very much compared to 3 mg some people take on a daily basis? I'm aware of what could happen and that's why i'm gonna start a taper and get off the stuff slowly slowly. But now isn't the moment. Only 4 months in so not ready yet!

      Inquiring minds would like to know:

      The particular Benzo
      Dosage and frequency
      How long were you on them?

      Very low dose Diazepam works wonders for my sleep. But I may consider stopping them and trying something else for sleep.

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      ssnhl/benzos/unknown
      Update:

      I'm 98% cured.

      I have some setbacks only if I don't sleep enough but I can easily return to cured state with 8 hours sleep.

      About 8-9 months after stopping benzos and I regained my life.
      My intelligence returned and I can make money very easy.

      I protect my ears from sounds, eat & sleep well without any drug... I take only a multivitamin pill each day.

      Stay away from psychiatric drugs, tinnitus & hyperacusis can cure on its own but if you take psychiatric drugs then you will have very bad end.

      Hell is nothing compared to withdrawal syndrome of psychiatric drugs and the damage done to the brain by these drugs.

      So what is the best type of ear plugs/muffs to wear if going to an indoor concert/movie or similar noisy environment? Foam plugs are not good because of vibrations, and EarPeace is not effective?

      I love my EarPeace filters, though I use them with three-flange silicone from other brands. So much easier to put in / take out in daily life than the foamies. The highest-level black filters are particularly great, and a bit different than most other silicone brands on the market. They're still only 25dB, so they aren't made to use with jackhammers. But in appropriate environments I find them to be Lifesavers.

      This is important for newbies to know: the bass can actually be worse, and ear plugs can't help that at all, as the sound conducts right through your bones.

      For high frequency sounds, the use of ear plugs can be effective (to a point, obviously). For low frequency bass: keep it super, super tones down.

      What makes foam plugs specifically bad for vibrations? *No* plugs can protect against low frequency vibrations. That's just a fact of sound acoustics, unfortunately.

      Truthfully, silicone plugs like EarPeace are probably all anyone without tinnitus requires. But for sensitive ears, we tinnitus sufferers can have more particular needs.

      Foamies offer more protection that silicone plugs like EarPeace, or even most custom plugs. But they are difficult to put in /take out, and they muffle speaking frequencies, making them harder to talk to people with. But they are the highest level of protection you can get, and should be worn when sounds are highest (over 90 dB, I'd say). They are not miracle workers, and still only provide ~30 dB protection (if inserted perfectly). But they are effective when used smartly.

      Silicone plugs like EarPeace are great too, but in a different way. They offer less protection than foam - only 15-25 dB protection - and so are not appropriate (for sensitive tinnitus sufferers) for super loud environments. But because they are so easy to put in / take out, are less conspicuous, and allow for easy speaking with others, they are great for avoiding unwanted everyday noises. I use them when I'm doing the dishes, when I'm sitting in a coffee shop with coffee grinding and plates clinking for any length of time - that kind of thing).

      So: all plugs can be good, and have their place. You just have to make sure not to rely on them too religiously, and to know they each have their own capacities and limitations.

      ssnhl/benzos/unknown
      I had all types of tinnitus.

      My tinnitus returned a little after 3 days of sleep deprivation and noise exposure together.
      But after 7 days of normal sleep it's gone away again.

      I am cured 100% now.

      Tinnitus cure needs good sleep, noise avoidance, good food and NO drugs.
      Drugs only can cause tinnitus, they cannot cure it.

      Hey man, I'd love to get your help... how did you cope through the worse times? Did you do pink noise or TRT to improve tolerance? I am looking to get off benzos myself... please help!

      Hello again.

      I've been 100% cured for long time.
      Of course when I am in a very noisy environment, (like angle grinder/hammer etc) I use Peltor X5A. I also bicycle every 3 days and do weight lifting. For supplements I take multivitamin A-Z Lamberts.

      My problem is the COVID-19 shit now. I know that COVID-19 infection and the vaccines have tinnitus as side effect. So keep my tinnitus and hyperacusis gone, I have paranoid measures to not get infected with COVID-19.

      For example I use delivery for all things I buy and keep them in 3 days quarantine before touching them.

      If tinnitus worsens from the COVID-19 infection, or if it worsens from the vaccine, which do you think has more likelihood of tinnitus returning to baseline?

      I know that I am in high risk and I cannot be compared with normal hearing persons.

      There is a long thread regarding COVID-19 vaccination on the forum. I’m personally in the double vax’d camp and would encourage others to do the same. Ultimately it’s your call to make.
