      Thank you Dr. You've been most helpful so far. My visit to the Clivelend Clinc however ended with some worrisome results. The ENT I saw said she thought the problem was in my jaw not my ears. I think she's right and was looking into TMJ a bet and I really didn't like what I found.:nailbiting: Therese few who can treat it properly, and if untreated it can make tinnitus worse over time!:nailbiting: The ENT is trying to get me in with the Tinnitus Management group, but they might not take me because of some issue with my Autism. And even if they do, it could take MONTHS to get in!:arghh: Iv been dealing with this crap UNTREATED too long already! I cant leave my parents house because I cant be independent anymore. (I try'ed:cry:) I'll have to give my new dog away soon because my parents cant afford to keep her, and I'll have to give my apartment away if no one is using it!:cry: I just want some help, any help at all. Do you know of any other TRT or TMJ specialists in Ohio?TRT sounds right because I think they connect you to people why accshily KNOW tinnitus and CAN treat it! I'm at my wits end! How hard can it be to get help with this anyway!?:arghh: Others on hear get it pretty quick so why cant I? I contacted a crisis helpline today and I'm still at the end of long waiting lists?:cry: Surely you know of someone who can help! I know I'm probably the biggest pain in the neck you've ever seen hear but I'm so desperate I wish YOU could treat me! And I dought you can right now with your own tinnitus acting up and all. I feel so alone and isolated without having anyone who can help me...:cry:

      You are welcome.

      In all honesty, most every visit to a clinic ends with some worrisome results. Almost every visit ends with some hopeful results as well. It's just that we tend to focus more on the worrisome ones - that's human nature.

      According to your bio, you've only had tinnitus for a few months. I realize that it seems like an eternity to you, but in the grand scheme of things, it really isn't all that long.

      I believe I already suggested that you make an appointment specifically to see Dr. Sharon Sandridge, who is the Director of Audiology Clinical Services at the Cleveland Clinic. If I did not give you her name, I meant to. Dr. Sandridge would be a very good resource indeed to help guide you through this maze.

      No. Not hardly.

      This board is an excellent source of support for those who feel alone and isolated due to their tinnitus.

      All the best -

      Dr. Stephen Nagler
