Hello everyone. I'm new here & I had no idea a forum like this exists but after some Googling I found this rather wonderful place. I'm here because I'm curious to know what has changed in the world of tinnitus in the last 10 years or so. The reason I ask is because my dad has suffered from tinnitus for quite some time after a surgery to remove excessive amounts of earwax. He has something called "mechanical tinnitus" or "mekanisk tinnitus" in Swedish and I know very little about it but I find it very painful to watch when he's in pain or knowing that he's sometimes getting no sleep at all unless he can distract himself because of the nonstop sound. He usually says that he doubts the treatment for tinnitus has changed since he last "treated it" (10 years ago) hence the question, any answer is very appreciated & any tips you can give that I can share to him and so on would be very kind. Best regards, a worried 19 year old son from Sweden.
