This audiobook is the result of my learning that I have tinnitus. It addresses what tinnitus is and my options for dealing with the problem.
I have suffered with tinnitus for over 35 years. I had been checked by several doctors over the years and was told that either they couldn't find a problem or there was nothing that could be done. I learned how to deal with it. I have never been one to complain about the hand I have been dealt.
I recently saw a commercial on TV that told me there were now things that could be done about it. What you hear in this audiobook is the result of my research and experiences. While I was doing my research, I found that there isn't a cure, at least at this point in time. I was open to considering a pharmaceutical solution to help in the treatment process, but learned that as of 2013 there wasn't an FDA-approved drug available.
In the past, the only thing that hearing aids were able to do was give some amplification, which can help in some cases of tinnitus, but which may not be able to help in all situations.
The solution I found has been available for about a year and half, at this point. It masks the sound of tinnitus. With technology being in a constant state of evolvement, things will only get better. Maybe some day there will be a cure for tinnitus; for today, we can at least treat the symptom.
These are just my experiences. The results you experience may be different from mine.
It is my hope that listening to my audiobook will save you some of the research that I have had to go through.
