      Great news @Jimellie I hope it stays that way

      It would have been very interesting if you could check the zinc levels in your blood... The information could be very valuable for us here at TT. As I mentioned earlier in this thread, my zinc levels were slightly above max reference. But I am still considering giving zinc a try.

      I bought liquid zinc on Amazon a couple of days ago. Hope I will find I am zinc deficient and it will help me.

      It IS odd that this person made only one post on this forum and then left. But I am not sure what to make of it. Do you think it was a healthy person who thought it would be funny to mess with us?

      Well, seeing the length and detail of the post I don't think that's the case but I find it equally weird that this happens relatively often. Why would someone make such a post and not respond? Surely they can't be stupid enough thinking hey if I'm going to post this no one will want to ask me anything? And why bother making an account to post one single time without even looking once at the replies. Oh well.

      If this worked as described, ts is just living happy without their T, and dont "care" about us left behind.
      T is no longer a part of his life, why use more time on it... But one day it might come back, and I predict this will be the first thread he will respond to.

      Received the liquid Zinc today. Turns out there has been flavour added to it....I did not notice that when I bought it. I tasted it and besides tasting like orange, it has a small aftertaste but I wouldnt call it a metallic taste at all, so maybe I am zinc deficient?....I'm not sure though.

      I tasted some liquid Zinc today, with added flavour of orange. I did not taste metal at all, could the orange hide the metal flavour or should I still be able to taste the metal if I was not zinc deficient?

      I would say the flavored zinc assay is to hide the nasty taste. You should know if your diet is poor you are likely deficient in somethings.

      I've been down the supplement road many times since my tinnitus began but being hard headed I ofter return to try things again and again hoping for some benefit.
      I think vitamin and mineral deficiencies are fairly easy to assess in ourselves because we know ourselves better than anyone. I know my diet has always been considered poor, I am basically a meat and potato guy and it's not hard to imagine I have deficiencies.
      I bought Zinc assay on Amazon, unflavored and it tastes like pure water. I began taking Zinc Picolinate since it's one of the more absorbable varieties but found no benefit. But I was concerned about over dose and probably didn't take enough.
      I just tried the assay again this morning, tastes like water and just took three 30mg Zinc. Let's see what happens.
      I'm in an almost 3 month spike, but just resigned myself to hearing it and going about the business of enjoying life, still hoping for habituation, I know it will come, have been there twice before this.

      What would you recommend to eliminate vitamins from the body of it was too much vitamins?
      Anything that is GERD friendly?

      syringing and now somatic T dental work
      Just slow down on use and drink some water.

      Unfortunately like anything else - tinnitus or not, the topic of vitamins is complex.
      Vitamins are promoted as it's big money, so deep research into one's condition by reading unbias research articles is needed.
      Some vitamins need to be taken with other vitamins.
      A balance diet is needed.
      Too much of a certain vitamin or too little can be a problem such as with D3.
      The body depletes magnesium with tinnitus so a little magnesium/calcium may be needed by some and maybe a little also for stiff muscles.
      I use B12 regularly but not others each day. B12 will help with stress related GERD.

      The only thing that has helped me is....time. I am not as bothered as I was before, but I think it's simply because I am getting more used to it. It's just become a part of my life now, and I guess I am accepting that. Staying busy and reminding myself that I do have those good times where it isn't that bad. Hope is a great thing.
