I just read an article posted on fixhepc's Twitter feed by Super User: Sound Therapy for tinnitus.
fixhepc.com/blog/item/133-sound-therapy-for-tinnitus.html

I developed tinnitus on the 20th day of my Harvoni treatment in August of 2016. I had dizziness and light headedness on the 16th day of treatment and awoke with a stiff neck and ringing in my ears on the 20th day. My ears still ring. The left one is always ringing. The right ear varies in intensity.

I have tried various supplements that have not worked. Has anyone tried Sound Therapy? $500 is quite a lot to pay for an unproven treatment. I would appreciate any advice.

Hi Beehavan,

I have suffered occasionally with tinnitus over the years from listening to loud live music. Where I have lived for the last few years, I have some noisy neighbors, so I sleep using silicone ear plugs, just so they don't keep me up. I use Mack's silicone putty earplugs. I find over time it has reduced my symptoms of tinnitus, perhaps because for 6 hours a day my ears get a break and have near silence, and through that somehow healed. I hope this helps you.

Thanks Greedfighter,

Glad your tinnitus has improved. I find using earplugs or putting my fingers in my ears makes the ringing/hissing more pronounced. In order to sleep I use a distraction like a fan, podcasts playing all night or the free app, Atmosphere.

I might try Sound Therapy this spring after I first have some needed dental work. I'm hoping to find someone who has used the treatment before I invest $500.

This is not the same company but is cheaper and has a free and immediate test/trial

www.hushtinnitus.com
YMMV
