Does anyone have ringing in the ears? At times mine is so loud I can’t think I don’t know of any solutions,if you do I,d appreciate hearing from you.
I’ve had tinnitus for many years, but it seems to be getting louder lately. I have autonomic and small fiber neuropathy, which could be what’s causing the ringing. I’m seeing a Neuro specialist soon, and I hope to learn more about what’s going on with several issues.

I hope he gives you some relief.Mine also has gotten worse since I’ve aged more ,75 ,I’m seeing a new Dr.and will talk to Dr about this ,I’d appreciate it if you let me know what your Neuro says.Thanks Jim.
I’ll try to remember to post any findings.
I wanted to go to a hearing aid person as she said she could run some tests, but I needed to get a referral from my doctor first. I doubt if he will give me one because he said just put noise on louder and you won’t notice it…ha…easy for him to say. The next time I go to him tho, I will ask for a referral.
What a lame thing for your doctor to say!
Some audiologists specialize in tinnitus. There are things that can be done to help you live with it. I have had it for over 5 years…..in my left ear from an acoustic neuroma, but this is a quiet locust-like ringing. Radiation of my right ear for my cancer has left me with a very loud tinnitus in the right ear….and its severity varies. A loud environment will exacerbate it for hours after. I accept it as being better than cancer in my ear, but some people need help in dealing with it. Find an audiologist in your area who deals with it.
Jim I received the collagen today I took only 1t. Not 2 do you take 2teaspoons a day?I think I will tomorrow as I didn’t feel any side effects .As far as my tinnitus my audiologist told me my hearing sides would help .It’s not as loud but is still there,let us know the results after you see the Dr.
Mine started roughly a month ago. I’m going to a functional-medicine specialist on Monday, and this will definitely be on my list of symptoms. I have very sensitive hearing (always have), and talk about annoying!!!
Hmmm, never have heard of a functional medicine specialist…maybe he/she has the answer…let us know how things go for you!
The PA I saw is wonderful! We talked about many things, and she has ordered several tests no other doc has ordered. Of the three results I have back, two are abnormal. (No surprise there.) I’ll be returning in a month to go over all the results and start discussing treatment options (e.g., diet first and foremost). My tinnitus wasn’t a focused topic of conversation, or I’d be happy to post anything I learned from our discussion. I hope everyone here is having a great Friday!
I have had ringing in my ears for the last 57 years since i was too near a Navy 5 inch gun when it went off (you’ve probably seen the 16 inch guns on a battleship) which is unbelievably loud. The concussion from it knocked me down and I was unable to hear anything for several hours until my hearing returned and with it…the ringing, which has only gotten louder over the years. It is quietest in the morning and loud noises and music makes it louder. My hearing began fading after I turned 60 and after I accused my wife of mumbling once too often, i went to an audiologist and got earing aids that addressed my hearing loss in the range most women speak in. They seem to help the ringing in that I can now hear better and hearing things seems to distract me from noticing the ringing, which is a fuzzy ringing. There are small sounds which I feel I could hear but they are in the same range the ringing is in, which drowns them out. The ringing is louder without my hearing aids. They are quite expensive, I might add. I hope this information helps anyone. Should someone develop a cure, I will try to be among the first to beat on their door to get it! I would give almost anything to be rid of my tinnitus! I would be happy with just the hearing I have now WITHOUT the everlasting damnable ringing.
