Omg ive never had this go on for so long!!! What in the actual flip can I do to stop it? Any ideas??-iblurry vision and dizziness, also feels like something is stabbing my inner ears!!! Please ...any ideas
I have tinnitus since 2009. My ENT doc have me some old hearing aids he has from when people upgraded. He cleans them and gives them to people who don't have the money to get some of there own.
The hearing aids pick up more background noise. It helps drown out somewhat the ringing to make it more barable. It took about 2 to 2 1/2 years but I hardly notice the ringing any more.
He says it's "selective hearing" like people who live next to train tracks don't hear the trains at night or if they have a grand father clock don't hear the chimes all night long. There used to it. "Selective hearing" is just that. The hearing aids picking up more background noise speeds up that process.
I hope that gives you hope... Praying for you and others suffering from tinnitus.
Your most welcome Westrengirl. I hope you can get some to start the process.
But a word to the wise!!! Don't use them in a restaurant or durring worthship time at church, etc... Those "loud" times are amplified and can give you one Heck of a headache. Enough to Mack you feel sick!!
Tinnitus is sometimes caused by high doses of NSAID S including aspirin. Also it can be caused by deep impacted wax in the middle ear.. You might try the liquid over the counter ear cleaners. It sure cannot hurt to try it. If you are taking NSAID(nonsteriod anti -inflammatory drugs) drugs talk to your doctor and see if there is a different option for you. If you have insurance you should see a Ear nose and throat doctor. I wish you a speedy recovery.
You can get bite guards for 20.00 at CVS, Walgreens, Eckerds. Also sporting good stors have them too Acsdemy, Dicks, Bass Pro you get the idea. You put them in hot water then mold them to your teeth. The directions are very clear. It is not as good as the 500.00 on from the dentist but it sure does help.
I found out I clench my teeth at night. Apparently I did it so hard I was breaking off some enamel. The dentist noticed it and I got a splint thing from her. It's made of hard plastic and fits over my two from teeth which holds all of my teeth apart if I clench. It only cost $75.
