    Vertigo and Tinnitus

    09/07/2017 ~No matter how it's labeled, vertigo is horrible.  It shuts down life.  There is not a definite pattern.  For me several things have happened in my past that may be to blame. Have any of you suffered from motion sickness since childhood?  Have any of you been scuba diving? Have any of you had a concussion?  If you go to the beach then go home can you hear the waves for about a...

    Hearing concern

    Hi I'm concerned about going deaf. I have titinitus rining in my ears and I heard that's a sign of going deaf. I'm also on medication and one of the side effects is deafness. In church lately I've had a hard time telling of people are singing along with the music minister or not.

    Thinking about my tinnitus a lot

    Does thinking about my tinnitus a lot make it worse, or is it just because I am more aware of it that it just gets louder? Yesterday, my left ear somewhat seemed a bit louder than usually since I kept thinking about it, will it make it worse or not?

    Just Got Tinnitus

    Hi I just got tinnitus and I am only 13. Generally, I am pretty sensitive to sounds and before I got tinnitus a few days ago I have been using a white noise generator to help me sleep through the night. Anyone have any tips for me or any ideas on what might have caused it? I also  can't sleep.

    Somatic Tinnitus

    Hi Every1,I am new to this site and so far I really find it helpful. I was wondering if anyone had experience with somatic tinnitus, meaning you can manipulate your tinnitus by putting pressure on different areas of your face, neck etc... I have had tinnitus for 7 months now and I can change the pitch on one ear only!! I can usually make it louder or softer. I just wish I could make it go...

    Noise Related Tinnitis

    My Tinnitis problem is directly related to surrounding noise.  The louder the noise, the louder the roar in my ears (usually both ears but can be one only at times).  This roar can get so loud that it will drown out conversation.  I have very good hearing aids which can be adjusted for background noise but even that cannot compensate for the roar.  When I am in quiet surroundings the roar is...

    How 2 b taken seriously w/ partial hearing loss...

    I feel like people don't necessarily take my difficulties seriously because I have operated my whole life in the hearing world and only have partial (high frequency) hearing loss. I seem to get along well because I can tell where sounds are coming from most of the time and can understand verbal conversation from context and vowels and maybe half the consonant sounds. Basically I excellently fake...

    New here (hear)

    Hello I am new here. What do you do when the ENT says my hearing loss is one issue, and tinnitus/hyperacusis is another, the brain. But the Neurologist says, ENT is wrong. Not the brain, it's all about the ear. ENT says tinnitus/hyperacusis is about my post concussion syndrome. Neurologist says I do not have post concussion syndrome. All my symptoms are related to migraines. He does not agree...

    High frequency auditory resonance

    Hello, I have had age related T for about 5 years. I have been an electronics design engineer working in the audio and video field of technology for half a century and decided to put my experience into improving my symptoms. After about 2 years of experimental design I came up with this device. I have uploaded a demo video to youtube for anyone that is interested. https://youtu.be/Y1-xhzYX6vg
  • Hi everyone,I have developed an Android application that gives you a relief when your tinnitus occurs based on a thesis from Ulm University, Germany. This application requires you to concentrate on finding a positional sound so that you can distract yourself from the tinnitus. And by focusing on finding where the sound located, your auditory is stimulated too.You can download the application from...

    Has anyone else noticed this effect?

    I have had rather severe tinnitus for about 2-3 years now. It started in one ear (left), but now it can be either one- or two-sided, depending on "who knows what." Obviously, the one-sided, quieter "t" is easier to deal with.I measured the frequency of my tinnitus (it's about 10.5 kHz, pure tone), and designed an audio file that creates a semi-random "rainlike" noise that is centered at the 10.5...
