I have suffered with one sided tinnitus in my left year for about 17 years. When I first experienced this problem, I had an MRI scan to check for an acoustic neroma and the result was negative. My ENT doctor surmised that my tinnitus might have been caused by an ear infection that occured in my left ear at just about the same time that I first noticed the tinnitus in that same ear. He didn't know for sure but he thought that my tinnitus might have been the unfortunate aftermath of nerve damage caused by the ear infection. Through the years I have done a lot of research on tinnitus and particularly tinnitus relief treatments including various medications, the tinnitus retraining technique, masking, and many more. Recently I tried the Tinnitus Relief Formula (TRF) from ARCHES for three months where the active ingrdient is very pure Ginko Bilobo. As prescribed, I took four capsules per day for the recommended three months but I still did experience relief from my tinnitus. Tinnitus, as you well know, is a very frustrating condition. Is there any other treatment that you can suggest that I should try. A prompt response would be greatly appreciated.
