Ringing in the ears / Tinnitus
Most of us have experienced occasional ringing in our ears (hello, loud concerts!). While noise-related ringing in the ears typically fades quickly, some conditions can cause more prolonged ringing. This symptom is referred to as tinnitus, and it’s been linked to anemia, high blood pressure, hypothyroidism, celiac disease, and more. It may also be a byproduct of biotoxins in the body, as we all know that bacteria, viruses, and mold like to cause problems anywhere and everywhere. Tinnitus doesn’t always sound like ringing—it can sound like hissing, buzzing, or even whooshing. Tinnitus can also cause depression and anxiety, but fortunately, there are treatments that can provide relief from the ringing. Some people find feverfew and gingko to be beneficial, while others experiment with hearing aids and sound therapy.

I’ve been thinking about the progression of my tinnitus and wonder if my birth control could have an effect on it. I got the Nexplanon arm implant in December 2019 and I didn’t experience a severe change in my tinnitus until around February 2020. Is it possible that the Nexplanon is affecting me?
If anyone has suggestions for tinnitus treatment it would be greatly appreciated. I’m getting my vestibulocochlear nerve tested and getting acupuncture but I’m not sure what to do after that.
About a year ago I started hearing ringing in both of my ears and still don’t know where I got it from but it’s now starting to impact my sleep and quality of life. At night I hear it clearly but during the days it’s drowned out by the city. Anyone else struggling with tinnitus or found ways to manage or overcome it?
I think I’m going to be in a study in New York that’s testing the relationship between ketamine and tinnitus. I’m excited and hope everything works out for me to participate in it :)
Hi everyone, sorry that I haven’t been on here much lately. My CT scan came back clear which means my doctors have tried everything for my tinnitus. I’ve been taking it pretty hard and I’ve been trying to stay positive but that’s easier said than done. My acupuncturist is trying to set me up with a functional medicine appointment but other than that there’s nothing else in the future for my tinnitus. :(
