      I have tinitus and and is probably due to Eustachean tube dysfunction. It has been very bothersome to say the least. Two days ago for no particular reason I felt like putting my feet up and my head down, sort of like a hand stand, the next day the tinitus was gone. I enjoyed a tinnito free day, however the next day came back, humm. I did not put two and two together yet till last night that I asked my husband to help me do a hand stand again wich I tried and was too hard, but since the desire to hang up side down persisted I tried leaning head down and feet up over the sofa and voila tinnito is gone again, ear pressure is gone again...relif at least temporarily is good...give it a try for some reason seems to work for me maybe it can help for you!!

      Wow. You should get one of those gym things that you can turn yourself almost upside down. :) Sounds also that your T is probably curable.

      I don't know if inversions have to do with it but my tinnitus always feels better after doing yoga which always involves a lot of inversions. I think it helps with habituating too--I barely ever even notice my tinnitus in yoga. And it has a host of other benefits of course as well!

      Good idea.
      I found that when I bend my head forward sitting down, like bending at the waist and keeping my head sort of level with that line, it lessens the sound for me but only for a few minutes.

      Very interesting, although the thought of living the remainder of my life like a human bat isn't that appealing. :)

      Hi and this is what has worked for me...lay in bed face down up to your waist...carefully bring your head down all the wsy down to the floor, help yourself with your arms...hold your head down for a minute or so...allow your ears to feel the pressure for a minute or so...carefully come back up and equalize if you need to and tinnitus should quiet down...try it it works wonders for me. And it gives me quiet for hours

      I have a teeter hang-ups machine. It helps my back and neck a lot; not much impact on my normal T. If I have bad T from neck tension it helps :)
