Hearing is one of the most important senses, but it unfortunately is also the sense that is most common for people to lose. Everyone loses some of their hearing ability as they get older. It is just a part of aging. One thing that many people don’t realize is that hearing loss just doesn’t involve the loss of the ability to hear sounds. There are other symptoms that often accompany hearing loss. Tinnitus, which is a ringing in the ears, is one of the most common of these additional symptoms of …
Tinnitus is a symptom of mal-adaptive changes in your brain following hearing loss. It’s a disorder where the brain registers non-existent sound. Tinnitus has stages that can range from minor nuisance right to a debilitating reaction that can lead to loss of hearing. It can interfere with having normal conversation, listening to music and even enjoying silence.
Tinnitus is usually treated by a neuromuscular dentist. Most sufferers are told – and manage – to live with this disorder, as most forms are untreatable. Some cases are …
The subject of TMS as a treatment for tinnitus has come up multiple times on the AudioNotch blog.
Despite promising early small scale studies, we’ve repeatedly reviewed evidence that indicates that TransCranial Magnetic Stimulation is an ineffective treatment for tinnitus:
It’s difficult, if not impossible, to find audio interviews about individuals detailing their experience of spontaneous remission of tinnitus. Instead, what I’ve done here is compile of list of the two best blog posts I wrote on the subject:
結果：在無後續評價的時刻，觀察相對於TQ變更或THI得分相對於治療前得分磁刺激和安慰劑之間的差異顯著。多級建模（ MLM）的分析並沒有表現出一個全球性的治療效果不是。患者具有較高程度的負擔，表現出顱磁刺激後稍有較大的提高（僅在THI顯著傳銷分析） 。結論：聽覺皮層的雙側低頻磁刺激是沒有有效的治療耳鳴。

The couple has tried desperately to get help for tinnitus, which is treatable.
Back in 2008, Veterans Affairs’ own medical examiner acknowledged that Rainville has tinnitus, and since then, they have been fighting for funding for specialized treatment at a Montreal clinic.
“I did all the steps that they wanted,” Rainville said. It’s still pending. I don’t know what they’re doing.”
Estimates for the treatment shows an initial evaluation would cost $620, but it’s money the family doesn’t have.
Not recommended, but interesting nonetheless:
An illegal party drug could hold the answer tinnitus sufferers have long been waiting to hear.
This week, an international conference devotes three days of expert discussion to tinnitus research, a condition which causes a constant and long-term ringing within the ear drum.
Researchers from Auckland hope the conference could be the springboard to the first approved trials of tinnitus treatment using the drug MDMA, one component used to make the illegal street drug ecstasy. University of Auckland senior lecturer Grant Searchfield said there were enough reports from those with tinnitus who had taken ecstasy …
Below, I’ve reproduced a e-mail from one of our users. This user provided some really good feedback and I wanted the chance to discuss it.
It’s important for us to stress that we don’t have a 100% success rate. Anyone who makes ridiculous claims like that is selling you snake oil.
Below is an example of a user who didn’t experience a benefit, but we wanted to be up-front about.
I’ve published his e-mail with his permission.
Thank you very much for enabling people to try your treatment on a ‘refund if no improvement’ basis.
It sounds like you …
If one has multiple tinnitus tones, you can match them as needed. However, our software was only designed to treat one tinnitus tone at a time.
If you want, it’s possible to make a track with multiple notches. Let’s say you have two tinnitus tones t1 and t2 at two different frequencies, f1 and f2. To create a Notched Sound Therapy file with multiple notches:
- Notch White Noise at the first frequency, f1.
- Download the MP3 format file of “White Noise – Notched at f1.”
- Upload the file from step (2) as a “song.”
- Notch the song …
