      Cause of Tinnitus:
      don't know
      Got T out of the blue about 10 years, and was so distraught that I searched and tried *everything under the sun*.

      You name it and I tried, from hyperbaric to anti-alcoholism treatment drugs. I would arguably say, that there was not a single this left untried, and then some. Nothing worked.

      At the beginning clonazepam helps and then habituation does the trick. Now it's essentially nothing to be concerned about.

      A little trick that helps quiet it down is getting a cheap crinkly supermarket plastic bag, making a ball with your hand and crunching it in your closed hand over your ears. That specific sound completely masks it and for a few blissful seconds after you stop, the T becomes somewhat silent...ahhh heaven.

      Don't blow money running about looking for treatments. Stay away from T sites, forums, etc.

      Don't talk to anyone about it, forget doctors, etc., keep it to yourself and in a few weeks you will habituate.

      But the key is to stop reading or talking about it with anyone.

      This is pretty much how my dad handles it.

      Out of curiosity, how did you find this site?

      Still unknown... possibly noise exposure?
      Maybe so, but tinnitus is neither cancer nor ebola.
