... in response to Hope for Those with Tinnitus
  1. Tom Gugliotta Tom Gugliotta United States says:

    I went through a period of PTSD.  During that time, it could have been the stress or the antidepressants the doctors were pumping into me just to shut me up.  Over the course of a week, I developed hyperacusis and then tinnitus.  They hyperacusis is gone now but the hissing and ringing in my right ear and head have never stopped.  That was almost 17 years ago.  I too spent thousands on hearing aids, acupuncture, chiropractic and useless herbs and vitamins.  Anyone that could make a buck took advantage of me.  I just don't understand why drug companies aren't researching this.  There is a gold mine to be had if there was something that worked.
