Thank you for this forum - firstly. I felt so isolated until I came across this Support Forum & THANK YOU - I don't feel so alone now. My family in South Africa laughed when I told them that I had ringing in my ear from an op I had 3 months ago - 'Oh they said at least you'll have music where-ever you go!" Yes right NO SLEEP, frustration - trying to have a social life - my life had become a nightmare & especially as I am allergic to most medication! NOW I must let every one know....STRESS is my factor in this whole thing & I was fortunate enough to find a MASSAGE therapist that knows about this 'condition' - she has being a God-sent. Try massage - I'm still going through the process & will keep updating on here.
