Thread: Tinnitus anyone?

  1. #211

    Unhappy tinnitus anyone

    about 10 years ago I participated in a tinnitus study at Georgetown University, one can Goggle the results, and the conclusion was what those in the study had in common was shrinkage in a particular part of the brain. So, it is important to wear protection to minimize hearing loss but that in itself may not protect against the onset of tinnitus. Lastly, as one ages another condition to look forward to is age related brain shrinkage (look that up also).

    Sorry to spread bad news.

    Brain shrinkage
    Some would think anyone who rides a motorcycle already has this going on as well

    Well I swear I've never had a problem with this until I started reading all these posts about it....Now I notice IT. Thanks everyone! . I do think I'll be more conscious about putting in earplugs when needed.

    13 really long years. first noticed it about a month AFTER I started using/wearing noise reduction. How loud is it now? Imagine being in a 12X12 room, bare walls, hardwood floor... with 100 locusts on a hot August day. Standing on my deck on a mtn. in the middle of nowhere NH, I used to find immense calm and serenity in absolute silence. I've completely lost any recollection of that experience. 13, really, long, years.

    I've had it since my early 20's, almost 50 yr now, my own internal symphony. I think maybe it's gotten a bit worse as I got older, tho. I can't remember when it wasn't there but I've learned to block it out so it really doesn't bother me much. It would be awfully quiet without it.

    What's the buzz, or at least ringing?

    As a retired Army Officer I acquired Tinnitus in 1972 while serving in the Field Artillery. It became worse over the years with explosions and gunfire. After many years I found a formula called RING STOP. It is available on Amazon. I take i capsule 2 times a day with meals. It takes my perceived noise level down 60% to 70%. Worth a try. Hope this helps. Ear plugs of muffs in loud environments will help it from getting worse.

    Any reduction would be a help

    When I was fairly young I remember my dad and I both identifying in ourselves at the same time. No idea what life would be like without it.

    Thanks for sharing that. I've wondered about those products. Former Armor Crewman here.
