I will try the T gone all the same. What do I have to lose besides my money? I'm also going to try serrapetase (for the inflammation) and vinpocetine (supposed to reduce tinnitus in a similar way to gingko but more effective.)
I believe that this is not a static condition. I am at the early stages of healing and I have reason to believe I can get through this.I don't know all your details, but I would encourage you not to resign yourself to a life of tinnitus.
Consider this: A friend of mine is a professional mixing and mastering guy, hurt his ears due to an earlier softwarre glitich in a popular audio program that caused inexplicable bursts of dirty digital noise at full volume. Eventually that led to his having tinnitus and loss of high frequencies in one ear. The doctors said he had permanent nerve damage and to live with it. But my friend didn't believe it. He did many things, dietary, exercise (including using a rebounder everyday!) nutrition and some far out tapes by a french doctor that are supposed to help. The list goes on. But the main thing was he didn't buy into the belief that this was a permanent condition. Over the next two years his tinnitus healed and he GOT ALL OF HIS LOST HEARING BACK! He had bought an audiometer machine so he was measuring his changes all along (he's a real nerd/techie). He now says he is hearing better than ever before! And no tinnitus.
So, the point is, your condition is in flux. On some level, your body is trying to heal itself. Just tell yourself that this is so and really believe that this is the case. A negative attitude can get in the way of healing-believe me, I know! Take it from a guy who went through this before and completely healed. My hearing was also fine after the last bout of ten years ago. In fact, most of my friends think I have better hearing than they do! Yet even now, I have to fight off the nagging voice in my head that says I'm permanently screwed. I know this condition can improve because I have experienced it myself. I'm not ready to throw in the towel yet.
