I have had tinnitus since early October 2018 so relatively new. I had a brain scan and saw the ENT but could find no cause.
Sometimes its hissing like steam escaping and sometimes it pulsatile. When i open my mouth wide or move my jaw from side to side or turn my head it changes in pitch and volume. It drives me insane.
Last week a friend recommended reiki with a guy in Hove Sussex she had used. I cannot believe how much it helped. I felt intense heat to my ear as he was doing the reiki healing. Within an hour my tinnitus had almost gone and by the next day i couldn't hear it. It stayed away for 3 days but came back yesterday in a different sort of way. I suspect it was because i took an ibuprofen as they do make it worse for me. Its not so pulsing now and a quieter hiss. The reiki healer told me before he started that it was normal for it to lessen for a while but not completely go until after 3 to 5 treatments. The healer is a tinnitus sufferer himself. I am a sceptic but it was the best £45 i have ever spent.
Not sure what the views are on this but i would be interested.
