Yes, I've had many conversations with my audiologist about my tinnitus and the many hearing aids offered on the market. The ones I purchased were suppose to be top of the line in helping with tinnitus, however they did not help mine at all. These hearing aids certainly helped for hearing, but with the noise factor I have to deal with 24/7, they did nothing. Getting opinions and hearing the experiences of what others like lioness who are actually wearing these different hearing aids will definitely be a big influence when I purchase my next set of aids.

Thank you so much for update on how the new hearing aids are working for your tinnitus, lioness. I am going to check out heartech site and do a little research on them. I would sure be pleased if I could purchase aids that helped more than the ones I presently have that were very expensive, but really have did "nothing" to lessen noise. Me and my wallet would be thrilled if I could find a pair that wouldn't be so costly and above all, help me hear better! Is there a specific type or model number that you purchased?

You need to reply to Lioness, Mari. Lioness purchased these aids from HEARtech, I did not. I had replied to her as I was very interested in finding out how well they were working for her tinnitus since I also have this condition.

Glad these new hearing aids helped your tinnitus. I am wondering if canal aids are better option for those of us with tinnitus. I have not used in-ear aids, so interesting to get opinion of others on whether those who have tinnitus feel they help the condition better than other type of aids.

You make some solid points and observations. I am impaired hearing, but add Meniere's and tinnitus to the equation and it becomes even a bigger challenge.

Nov 22, 2019 · Prolia treatment for osteoporosis in Bones, Joints & Muscles

There isn't a one-size for everyone way to treat osteoporosis and that is why I so strongly suggest doing your own research and decide what options you're comfortable with trying. Be your own advocate, research, and don't rely completely on physicians to make these decisions for you. Which drug, or whether you take an osteoporosis medication at all differs from one person to the next and their situation. From my own experience and research, I have chosen not to. I previously took Fosamax and Fosamax D. The digestive side effects appeared soon after starting treatment. Later I experienced severe bone cramping in my legs and groin. Coupled with these side-effects, I was hearing concerning media reports and also found numerous studies while doing my own research that told of troubling/dangerous issues others were having with Fosamax and other osteoporosis drugs. I decided to completely go off Fosamax and it has been many years now since I have taken osteoporosis drugs. My doctors continue to want to prescribe them for me and I continually reject them! All side effects disappeared after going off the drugs and in these passing years my over-all health greatly improved after discontinuing the drugs. I try to eat healthy, I exercise, walk the treadmill every day, I take a probiotic, D3, and eat yogurt daily. If and when a safe and proven drug without serious, life-altering side-effects comes on the market for osteoporosis, I would certainly consider taking it. There are those who report no issues from taking osteoporosis drugs and have experienced improvement, so again, all cases cannot be lumped into either bad or good. I truly understand it can be confusing. I remember when I was first diagnosed with osteoporosis being scared and worried how this was going to effect my life and doing the things I enjoyed. I do live a more cautious life than I use to, but still do many, many things I have always did….just do them more carefully, thoughtfully and sometimes with restraint.
