      Second case of a person I know whose tinnitus is gone, or almost. A colleague from work developed his tinnitus two weeks after a doctor removed a small piece of glass from inside his ear.

      He suffered pressure in his ear, and the sound was like a low hum or a ship's horn according to him, sometimes a really annoying sound, especially in bed. He's had it for 8 moths now, but the strangest thing is he drinks a lot of alcohol, coffee and he doesn't follow a diet at all.

      Mysteriously, it was the day after he drank half a bottle of gin when his T became lower and now he barely hears it, only at night, and not even every night.

      I prefer not to run the risk, and in any way this was a message to encourage everybody to get drunk :) But hey, that means the brain is a mystery, as Dutchy says, and sometimes there can be an unexpected twist, just like in movies.

      That's all I need to hear. -- I'm off to the liquor store to get some gin! :)

      Seriously, wine gives me a T spike, however, beer (if I am eating well) helps calm me and gets my mind off of T. -- Of course, over indulging on a regular basis will have the opposite effect.

      Cheers!

      He drank alcohol before it and it didn't help his T? Maybe there's something special in Ginbut probably just a coincidence.

      A brief update on my workmate. He said the T is for the most part gone. He now regularly doesn't hear it, but sometimes it spikes at night for a couple of hours, then it fades.
