After a suction procedure at a hospital I developed tinnitus. There is no cure, go online and research and follow suggestions to “get rid of it”. Mine went from annoying to absolutely nothing in a year or so. In fact until I saw this I had forgotten about having it.

Which 'get rid of it' solution of the 100's touted worked for you ?  Tried a couple, none worked, as I suspected.  Haven't seen on 'permanent' solution written about in a medical journal.

There was a study done in Brazil that I read about back in 2017.  I tried it myself and although it didn’t cure it, it definitely lessened it.  There is a new/follow up  study ongoing in the US currently.

My Thai wife developed very bad tinnitus a couple of years ago, and after trying several different hospitals and "specialists" in Bangkok, was most satisfied with (and still goes to) the Hearing, Speech, Balance and Tinnitus Center at Bangkok Hospital.

When there is such a treatment, let us know.

My first thought as well.

 

You might get therapy, advice on mitigation........but treatment?

 

I have tinnitus in both ears, but have more or less got used to it unless I see an article like this.

 

Noisy aircons in Thailand help!

You do not need a "better hospital". You need a specialist in tinnitus to rule out any treatabkle causes. (Often there isn't one, be forewarned)

 

All hospitals have some sub-par doctors, most have at least a few good ones.Nothing to do wit  the hospital.

Sheryl spot on. Identify any “treatable causes”.

My take : if none, then best assist body to heal itself.

one case here where it “went away”. body healed itself seemingly……

I've had it for over 20 years. I don't think it's going away any time before I snuff it.

I don't believe there is a treatment for Tinnitus though many claim there is.  

Agree..... for true tinnitus that is!

 

There maybe occasions where something triggers tinnitus like sounds that can be treated, but there is no hard and fast remedy for 'true' tinnitus.

 

Sad, a farmer in Wales committed suicide last year......said he couldn't tolerate his tinnitus anymore.

 

If a cure is developed I would happily stump up a good deal of money to be put on the waiting list.

just read Mayo Clinic online Tinnitus explanation. 15_20% all people affected (to varying degrees).
caused mainly by “underlying condition”. old age. or accident. diet & exercise may mitigate.

 

have very minor hearing loss in one ear. detectable only at extreme audio test range. hoping by keeping fit and healthy I can avoid Tinnitus. dreadfull continuous mental torture.unimaginable to me.

 

and not something my personality type could readily handle. always wanting to “ fix” problems ……falls under my “preventative” lifestyle though, like avoiding Diabetes or Fatty Liver or Lung/ Heart issues.Plant Based Diet with HIIT Exercise. No Junk Intakes. Readily Attainable with Longstay Thailand.

No Guarantees though …….just moving the odds away from serious illness……

You are right......once you start, boom (or rather fssssss)...that's it.

 

I first noticed mine wearing noise cancelling headphones. With nothing playing I could hear a continuous, high pitched note and assumed the earphones were faulty.......oh dear...nope!!!

 

Twenty years in heavy industry has destroyed the finer hairs at the entrance to the cochlea......no remedy I am afraid.

I know there are people who get ringing in their ears from things like Aspirin or Caffeine.  If they stop ingesting those the ringing stops.  

In my case, I was a target shooter when I was young and before there was really good ear protection.  I also used things like garden tractors, leaf blowers, string trimmers etc.  I don't know what precipitated the ringing but I have had it for years. 

When I first got fitted for hearing aids about 6 years ago the ringing declined when wearing the hearing aids.  That is still true today.  I can still hear a ringing in my ears with the hearing aids on, but it is less than when I remove them.

I am lucky that the level of tinnitus is such that unless some asks, have you got tinnitus, or posts a thread on tinnitus, I tend not to notice it too much.

 

I do get the occasional burst which about 10x louder, but it lasts less than a minute. That scares me!!! If it were that bad I genuinely could not cope.

I won't go into details, because as Sheryl has rightly pointed out, tinnitus can have a number of causes and treatment depends on a correct diagnosis of the particular causes for the particular patient.  In my wife's case, the rapid onset of tinnitus was associated with rapid onset of severe hearing loss in one ear together with dizziness.  Her tinnitus, hearing loss and dizziness have improved a good deal, but it is almost certain the hearing will not recover 100%.

 

From what I've learned as a bystander, it is completely pointless to try to find out from internet websites or online forums what to do about tinnitus without a correct diagnosis of the causes.  While a "cure" may not be possible, improvements are possible, but it is definitely NOT a one-size-fits-all condition.

Thanks for that.

 

Mine is tolerable for the moment and I am hoping it might improve (doubtful); the fun of growing old!!
