Hi Dr Nagler, I met with Dr Hebert today and we discussed starting me on devices. She was considering the Oticon but settled on the ReSound Linx as a better choice for me. She was and still is slightly hesitant about me getting them now, 2 weeks before I leave for Mexico for 3 months. Her main concern is that I also have hyperacusis in the ear that has the tinnitus. She is worried that the devices could make the T worse or aggravate my hyperacusis. I appreciate a caring doctor and she certainly is that! I did tell her I was going to do some research, talk to a few experts (including you), and get back to her by Wednesday. They certainly are expensive but if TRT has a great chance of working for me then it is worth it. My neuro and previous audiologist (Janice Howard) are both fairly sure that my M.S. is causing issues with the auditory pathways. It certainly makes sense. However, when I try to research M.S. and TRT I can't really find if TRT (or any other option) is better for those dealing with likely nerve damage. I'd appreciate your thoughts as I make this decision. Thank you!
