      I'm a bit surprised that there hasn't been any discussion about this topic. The author of this paper invented the Tympanic patching technique, where a membrane is placed on the Tensor Tympani to treat various conditions, like Tonic Tensor Tympani Syndrome (TTTS).

      Those of you who are more knowledgeable about this than me, what do you think about this paper/hypothesis?

      This is a study (by the same author) on tympanic patching: The effect of paper patching on aural fullness of unknown aetiology.

      This looks really promising for people with TTTS, but so far I've only found one person who claims to have benefitted from this therapy.

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Who knows
      Because it is hard to find a place to do it. The Brai3n clinic or whatever they are called in Germany does it. I've read mixed results. Dr. Santos is probably one of the most respected out of Boston and he would still rather laser the muscles. Laser is definitely much more accurate/better than knife.
