Re: My tinnitus is driving me crazy these past couple of days

I had tinnitus for the longest time, and the most annoying thing was that no doctor could ever fix it. I hadn't had an accident, there was nothing phyisically wrong, I just had the most horrible whining sound, ALL the time. I finally found out that a lot of tinnitus isn't caused by the ear, it's caused by the brain mixing up signals from the ear.

The thing that helped me was sound therapy. Basically they give you this player with classical music on it that you listen to for hours at a really low volume. It re-trains your brain to focus on sounds properly. It took a while, but it's helped SO much - I can finally talk to people on the phone.

I don't know if it works for everyone, but I really recommend it. Hope that helps!
