Constant tinnitus: Are there any solutions?

It there any solution for constant tinnitis?

I have high pitched tones constantly though I have learned to ignore it mostly.

It can become louder at times, even loud enough to make me wince!

@catstx

I have two different tones that come mainly at night. One sounds like a marching band. The other sounds like a men’s chorus of undefinable songs sung in very low voices. I’m going deaf so that’s why I started hearing these noises. Any insights from anyone.

I sympathize with you and know what you are talking about. have the exact same sounds that you have.The men’s chorus, of un identified songs sung by low voices. I also have music that is like a musical phrase of several notes in constant repetition, birdsong, an engine in operation, plane type noise. I have also lost some hearing and can’t understand words spoken on the radio or the tv without my hearing aids connected to a device which is connected to the tv. In short a cornucopia of sound.

I probably have a mild case of tinnitus – but, I just drink distilled water, it goes away. Also, I know if I eat salty food I'll get tinnitus.

Drinking water is healthy. So is staying hydrated. Not sure either have a direct relation to reducing tinnitus. However, salt, or sodium as it is commonly known as on food package labels, is a good idea. Salt is related to a higher blood pressure level which can affect the blood flow to your ears and may aggravate tinnitus.

Has anyone had success taking a taurine supplement for there tinnitus? I was taking soy isoflavones and I had great success taking the supplement. But unfortunately I had ER positive breast cancer 12 years ago and I was told by my oncologist that I should stay away from estrogen type supplements. But it helped quite my tinnitus so well that some days I would have no ringing for part of the day. I have stopped taking the soy isoflavones supplement for 7 days and the ringing is back real loud. I have been taking 3000 mg of taurine for a few days and it doesn't seem to help. I will give it time, but would like to know how long it may take before some relief might start. I am heartbroken that I can not take the soy isoflavones because as I understand, it might bring my cancer back. If someone knows different please refer me to the information/study that says I my take the soy isoflavones. To all the other tinnitus sufferers I used the soy isoflavones 750 mg 3 times a day. Them cut back to 2 times a day. I got really good relief from the tinnitus. Then I was maintaining very low ringing sound with 60 mg twice a day.

I am currently taking 2-3 60mg capsules of soy isoflavones, spread out through the day. This keeps the tinnitus somewhat quite. Higher doses of the soy isoflavones keeps it completely quite for a few hours every day and the tinnitus at a low sound level the rest of the day. But, I had ER positive breast cancer and was told not to take soy products. Since the tinnitus gets really bad at times and I can not concentrate, when not taking the soy, I have chosen to take the least amount of soy I can and hope that the taurine capsules that I am taking will kick in, in about 3 weeks. This will allow me to get off the soy products.
