Here is a YouTube Show Excerpt for folks getting to know us. The Complete Show is available for members below…
- Generally, I am wondering about doing things that, in the short term might have a negative impact on the tinnitus, but, in the long term, overall will be good for me. In particular, I am thinking about having all of my mercury dental fillings removed. I think that having all this toxic metal in my head is not a good thing! So, having them removed seems to be a good thing. However, my tinnitus is still pretty reactive right now, so I wonder if it’s the best time to have seven fillings removed — i.e. if my body will experience it as trauma and just be my nervous system all jacked-up again.
- If I get a clean bill of health from my doctors and still have tinnitus, what do I do then? How do I stop obsessing that this is, indeed, a “sign” of something “wrong” with my health that will manifest at some point? How can someone get a symptom like this in the absence of any hearing loss?
- What about intense exercise and tinnitus? I started Bikram yoga and like it but it’s a bit stressful too because of the heat in the room. I hear the tinnitus during the class (it’s relatively quiet) but sleep better that evening. Should I continue? Are aerobics dance classes which are more enjoyable a better bet?
- What’s with this feedback loop concept? Am I listening now that I’ve “identified” the sound and can’t stop “listening” for it unconsciously in the background?
- Should I do TRT?
- How can I explain the sudden onset?
- Causes: are they sure sinuses have nothing to do with this? What about finally going off benzos (Klonopin) after using them for 15 years??? I’ve read that can cause tinnitus. I am currently on Ativan, 1 mg. 2x/day because it helps calm down the tinnitus and helps me relax. That’s a benzo too but diff. than Klonopin.
