I am writing regarding my husband who has had tinnitus since June, 1988. The Drs. think it was caused by a virus. He has been to many, many Drs. and has tried many different meds. Nothing has worked. Ten years ago he had an early retirement at work - not his choice, but many people were either retired or let go. We were lucky he could take the early retirement. My husband loved his job and this was devastating for him. He started to drink telling me it helped his T. I can see over the years that now the alcohol has taken over along with the tinnitus. He is in denial about the drinking and is angry about the tinnitus. Any suggestions or comments would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
