      Christmas is coming, so catalogs are hitting the mailbox. While browsing Hammacher (a general gadget catlogue), I was amused to find a "Tinnitus Wand": http://www.hammacher.com/Product/88273

      "Applied to four points on the outer ear and surrounding bones, the wand’s gentle vibration stimulates the auditory nerve while producing a low hum similar to white noise. This sound therapy muffles the clatter of tinnitus and trains the brain to ignore it. The wand tip tucks comfortably into the opening of the ear canal, and the slim device is portable for relief whenever symptoms occur."​

      The reviews on the website itself speak for themselves. Two people said it helped, the majority didn't. I can see how a vibrating wand might take people's mind off their T, but not by using it in the ear area...

      I suggest the noise kills it for about one minute after stopping.....try this press your forefinger on the small ear flaps near the ear canal and really seal close up the hole. with your second finger tap on the forefingers nails a few hundred times it will sound a bit tight drummy, Afterwards you may find your ear pressure if you have it and T had calmed right down it will last about a minute

      Kind of surprised... Mainstream catalog Hammacher Schlemmer had this. My husband showed it to me. It didn't get great reviews but it seemed like it could have worked for a couple people... And you can return it if you aren't thrilled.

      I will check it out and let y'all know

      so it was backordered twice. Wasn't supposed to get it until March so I canceled the order. So um..alot of people can find vibrating things in their home. In case they want to try.
