  • Remedies for ringing ears

    Saw an ad on TV the other day for some product claiming to cure/help with tinnitus. I have always heard that there is no cure. Anyone familiar with any known treatments? years of gunfire and loud music (not simultaneously) have had an effect I would like to reverse if possible.

    Personally I'm hoping that the build new hearing cells project hits human trials soon. (It's a virus delivered genetic modification to cells in the ears. Hadn't been tried on humans last I heard.)

      I'm skeptical. Claiming to "help" folks who have ("suffer from") tinnitus isn't the same as claiming to provide a cure or even lessen the effects of the damage. Something that is advertised on TV makes it more suspect in my view. YMMV (but probably not). :-( Mark C. ("C" as in cynical.)

        As a fellow sufferer, I'd love it if they came up with a cure.  In the meantime, lowering blood pressure seems to help--the easiest way to do that is cut back on the salt.

      I think wearing my custom earplugs to a show indicates to others that I am probably a musician myself. I'm sure it doesn't really to most. But at least that helps me to not worry about what others think of them.
