I live in France, and I really appreciate Health Unlocked because I haven't found anything similar here.
My tinnitus problem started around 25 years ago, at a time when I was very stressed by some major life changes. I've learnt to live with it over the years, and to try to avoid stress and too much introspection, which I've found exacerbate the problem. Having an audiologist here who is a tinnitus specialist also helps a lot, and he convinced me that in the absence of any real medical solution, it's the brain that deals with the problem by shutting out the noise. It doesn't always work of course, but most of the time it makes things much more bearable.
Very best wishes to you all for 2020, and don't give up!!
