      no. ginkgo can help if you have blood flow problems but if you not have then it doesn't work.

      vitamin b's can help with stress .

      Ginko is pretty much useless and has been tested scientifically and been proven not to work.

      No. When you think about it, a multivitamin is mainly a B-complex with minerals and other vitamins added. Basically if a B-complex helped then anyone who takes a multivitamin should find relief.

      I haven't heard of ginkgo helping anyone. I suppose since tinnitus can be cause by a whole host of things, it wouldn't be that surprising if someone's was caused by something a B-complex or ginkgo could help with. But that definitely seems to be rare if that's the case.

      I am thinking to start gingko treatment once again and see if it helps. I took gingko+piracetem+vinpocetine a year ago for 20 days and it didn't help. I got T from a concussion to maybe its a circulation and inflammation thing for me so thought to give it a try. Anybody else thinking to give gingko a try ?

      Unsure
      Currently, taking B12, magnesium and multivitamin and so far T is okay.

      Dropped Gingko, Zinc, Omega3, Chinese Medicine, Pine Bark Extract which did not help at all.

      Recently, I realised when I take Panadol it seems to lower my T but not sure as it could be coincidence.

      Stress
      I spoke to a T-expert and when I mentioned ginkgo they said it's pretty much useless. I even said a doctor told me to take it and they said 'I know'. They get this all the time. I did/do take ginkgo but doesn't seem to make a difference. That's not to say it won't work for others; I would take it for a month just to tick it off the 'to be tried' list.

      Unknown (sinuses, stress or cervical...doc opinions differ)
      It can work as placebo, though.

      My boss gets every month or two 3-5 days episodes of tinnitus (fleeting tinnitus I believe its called) and she says that ginko helps her, but it can be coincidental just as well.

      As for B, I think there have been several researches that found that B12 deficiency is common among T patients. Well, its not gonna hurt you anyway and you should have vitamin B in your body, but prefferably via vitamin rich diet and not just relying on pharmacy supplements.
