      Hi, I have had this disease since 1992. Broken steam pipes 24/7, coping with it after the first 6 months, have been told it is from working in mainframe computer environment for over 40 years. Have to say it does mimic the sound of whirling disc drives. I was prescribed cyclobenzapine for a muscle cramps in my back. A unintended result is a reduction in the sound of my T on 3 out of 5 days. It does seem to help, but never cures. Just a FYI.

      "High-dose cyclobenzaprine resulted in a significant reduction in the Tinnitus Handicap Inventory (THI) score between baseline and week 12 in the intention-to-treat sample. On the other hand, other treatments were not effective."
