      Okay, so this is kind of like game where you answer yes or no and post a new "would you trade your tinnitus" question.

      Would you trade your tinnitus for the sight of one of your eyes?

      The person who answers must remember to ask a new question.

      (werent really sure where to put this, mods are free to move it if its in the wrong section)

      Edit: This thread might be suportive in the way that it reminds us that there are worse condtions out there.

      With all due respect I don't much see the point of this thread. You can't trade your tinnitus for anything unfortunately, and that shouldn't be any sufferer's concern. They should be more concerned with focusing on acceptance and improvement, and improvement WILL come. At the end of the day, it is a benign sound that you will get accustomed to, but the first step for sufferers is acceptance and thoughts like these do them a disservice if anything.

      I don't wanna be a party pooper, just my two cents :)

      Edit: I just saw the edit to your OP! I agree that there are much worse ailments out there. That is definitely a good way to look at it. Either way, it will resolve itself.

      The reason I know that is because when my T started, I would daydream about it magically disappearing one day. And it never happened, but the sooner I accepted that it was here to stay the quicker I got better and forgot about it. Now it's a null issue in my life.

      Well, I had injections to my lower back today that seems to be working ...knock on wood. I was having numb and stinging toes too. Dropped down my tinnitus a lot too, at least for now.:)

      Thanks! It was a hard bony area about 2-3 inches left of my lower spine, so some kind of corticosteroids was used that spread over the inflamed area. I think facet joints are near the spinal cord. The previous injections didn't do much (his ideas) so I told him to inject my sore areas with some kind of cortisone. He did both sides to make sure.

      I would happily trade the hearing in my T affected ear for silence if it was possible.

      But would you trade your hearing in both ears for silence ?

      Nah, once the sound sensitivity buggers off which is the only thing reminding me of Tinnitus, the Tinnitus itself which is very mild won't be a bother, so nah I'll keep my eyes and hearing if you don't mind :)

      I have cluster headaches, and no, i prefer my T over the pain.

      The pain makes my T sound louder. When there is no pain, my T (i can hear it over T.V) does not bother me.

      Regards.

      I have read that low doses of serotonergic hallucinogens (LSD, mushrooms, DMT, etc) can prevent cluster headaches for a period of months. Confirm / deny?

      Would you trade your T for the brain of a monkey? you could be a happy, quiet monkey.

      Would you trade your T for $10,000,000? ;)

      I suffer from migraines, fibromyalga, arthritis and T. Would not trade T for migraines if I could. Of all the terrible pain I have experienced in my life time, migraines must be one of the worst. You want to bang your head against the wall.

      I'd happily give up one of my eyes instead of having tinnitus. At least I could close my eyes and I wouldn't be bothered at all.

      No dude, the pirate look is out of style.
      Maybe you should give one of your testies, no functional or visual issues - plus you don't get to have an empty eye socket.
