I am new to this forum.
Amazingly I am no longer plagued with the nightmare of tinnitus. After suffering for more than ten years it is under absolute control. Here is my story.
I had read in a local newspaper of the work of Dr Cunningham of Newcastle University who had been recognised for his successful work in seeking a cure for Tinnitus. Desperate to seek an improvement in my condition, I offered myself to him as a guinea pig for any tests or experiments. I was very disappointed when this offer was politely turned down as they apparently had enough test pieces.
Aware that my general hearing was poor because of the near deafening tinnitus noise, my doctor arranged for me to have a hearing test at the NHS Freeman Hospital in Newcastle.
On 22:12:2016 I was subject to a hearing test and found to be a suitable candidate for hearing aids. Two months later on 21:02:2017, I was fitted with Siemens Teneo aids behind each ear. Previous hearing aids had made sounds louder but did not over-ride the tinnitus which made me cynical about the procedure i was currently undergoing. The technician understood this but asked me to give the fittings an hour trial
Driving home from the hospital, I was immediately struck how noisy my car engine was and also by the sudden ability to hear sounds such as my clothes rustling as I moved. Later, during our evening meal, my life was suddenly changed. I noticed I COULD NOT HEAR ANY TINNITUS. .
Removing the aids results in the return of the fearful din within 5 minutes. However, the amazing miracle of near silence returns within 5 minutes of replacement.
The technician had given me an app to use with my smart phone. This was to enable me to make adjustments to volume and /or pitch with a simple slide bar. Even with the volume at minimum, there was no tinnitus. As long as the blue tooth system was switched on, whatever removed the problem, continued to do so.
At the beginning of this note I wrote of my absolute control. I do not claim to be tinnitus free but my remedy removes all evidence of its presence.
