      • Hi Dr. Nagler, I remember when you just contacted tinnitus. I have to laugh, because from what I can remember, you were taking some Zanax during your TRT treatments.
      Dr, I just finished 50 treatments of TMS, with no luck. I have a notch therapy file that was made for me by my audiologist here in CA.

      I run it in the morning (on my mp3 player) for two to three hours at the same level as my tinnitus.

      During the day, I run my widex trt sound therapy, and the widez zen at night.

      Would you say that is over kill.

      The widex sound therapy I can't even here it during the day, because the max sound level on Widex, is not very strong.

      That is why I use the notch therapy file for a few hours in the morning.

      Thanks Dr. Nagler

      Sincerely
      Daniel

      Hi @dgn58 -

      Would I say that what you describe above is overkill?

      Well, Daniel, what is overkill for one person is not necessarily overkill for another.

      All I can tell from what you have written above is that it seems to me your strategy is not particularly well-coordinated. It's like you are throwing a whole lot of stuff up against the wall to see what sticks.

      It appears to me that you are trying to be the captain of your own tinnitus ship. I suspect you wouldn't do that if your problem were colon cancer. What you would do if you had colon cancer is go to a clinic with a lot of experience and documented success in addressing that disorder and let the colon cancer specialist there be the captain of your ship.

      So FWIW, my suggestion would be for you to do precisely the same for your tinnitus.

      All the best to you!

      Dr. Stephen Nagler
