In Reply to: RE: Tinnitus: how many of you have had it go away as mysteriously as it appeared? How long did it take? Nt posted by email@example.com on March 09, 2017 at 13:51:53
Rather than a high pitch, I got a low rumble sound like some kind of motor. Annoyed the shit outta me. But it turned out to be related to chronic sinus problems.
I was prescribed Nasonex, which I used for over a year, stopped for 6 months then had to go back to it for another 6 months when that rumble started again. Now I just use AYR Sinus/Allergy spray every night - its just a saline solution. Guess overall I was hearing the rumble inconsistently for over a year. Very rarely have a problem now, and if I do it recedes quickly.
I presume you've been to an ENT.
Most of the time tinnitus is caused by the digastric muscle pulling down on the inner ear mechanism. Getting therapy from an AIS (Active Isolated Stretching) therapist should relieve it easily. Look at Stretching USA website for a list of AIS therapists in your area. This is what I do for a living. I am in the Milwaukee area if I can be of service. Don't put up this condition.
So I guess that is the problem, in reverse. Since I am making it happen!
The brain replaces lost frequencies and even cutting auditory nerve doesn't stop the noise. Awful. Unfortunately I have to wear ear protection 8 hours a day and it's like locked in a quiet room with piccolo player all day.
I looked up digrastic muscle and stumbled across a blurb about the Masseter muscle and its pressure points, especially the uppermost area inside the cheek, closest to the ear.
After a few minutes of thumb in mouth, massaging and applying pressure to the Masseter, I'm hearing absolute silence for the first time in 30 days.
I still feel the need to keep it real here: there's no cure for Tinnitus, so it could be just a placebo effect. We'll see. There's no doubt that I clench my jaw most of the day, due to the physical nature of my work, and of course, there's stress. One thing I've noticed over the month is that I could manipulate the squealing sound by moving my jaw. I thought that was odd for a condition that is supposed to originate in the brain.
But thank you! I'll take the placebo effect anyday. Will let you know if lasting.
Not a god. Just sound therapy technique. Remove the cause remove the effect. Really glad it helped.
a little of it came back overnight, but still dramatic improvement. I've been told I grind my teeth at night occasionally.
Will continue doing everything possible to stretch and relax clenching muscles of the jaw.
