Posting quick question, then gotta run, will check back later...
Does tinnitus, ringing in the ears, cause actual physical damage, or is it merely indicative of the problems that are causing it (ie caffeine, etc.)
Contributing culprits seem to be caffeine, sugar, and occasional Adderall (ADD meds, very low dose)
Thanks, folk, waves to all

Personal experience indicates that tinnitus is an indicator of other issues, and if not corrected long-term, may cause a reduction in hearing sensitivity due to the constant loading of the nerves.  I know that anytime a nerve center is constantly stimulated, the body responds less over time until the pain is masked (ignored).  If this happens in the hearing system, you will only hear tones in that frequency range when they exceed the "masked" level.
Whether this damage is ever permanent???  Good question...  I doubt it, because I know that damaged nerves can heal, so if/when the "toxin" is removed, the nerves should be able to heal...  When does the body decide to remove the toxins becomes the question.

but isn't that like minuscules cristals are clocked into the little fine hairs in the ear and by its own sounds ther's the feedback which drives you crazy.....?? What can be done to get off those impertinently disturbing  noises
I remember well, my father was set on so called capillare flushing, then dogmatil as an aid for his psycheproblems by those symptoms; but I guess merely because it was joyned by a morbus menière
attac, too

hmmm would say, loads of magnesium B-vits especially the B 15 as a oxygenizer and perhaps also
ginko biloba or panax ginseng or some fatty acids to sustain brainfunction...or just all together
perhaps might be too much all.....yech...today is not my day at all sorry to ambivalent with yes..no..games

I've had tinnitus since my twenties.  Been on BTD for almost seven years now.  Haven't found anything to make it go away.  I think I take most of what Isa reccommended.  So, will watch for more advice......


OUCH!!   My dogma was just run over by my karma!

Peeking in, gotta run again, thanks, guys.
BTW, my hearing is very sharp, but I have a lot of trouble listening to someone talk in a crowd. I think that may have been called "auditory discrimination." If I can't watch their mouth, I'm in trouble. Otherwise I can hear a gnat hiccup.
