    I just watched a video on yahoo, by abc news diane sawyer, that talks about cutting edge treatment for tinnitus. It is a 5 minute video and talks about how they are thinking tinnitus may originate in the brain, and how 2 new devices are retraining the brain to process these noises. Very worth looking into for those with bad tinnitus. They interview 2 people they really helped and show the devices. Hope this helps someone. Lisa

    Sounds like a really important option for anyone with debilitating tinnitus.

    It said one woman could not leave her home, and after using a device that looked like hearing aids for a few months, now can. It was very hopeful. Lisa

    Thanks for this! With Meniere's, I think it is something that we all ahve to live with and I know that for me, it is annoying, frustrating, but so is my hearing loss, and most definately is my vertigo. I wonder if any of these treaments would help with those. I have a dr. appointment next week, I am going to mention these devices to him and see what he says.

    THanks for the linK!

    My audiologist is getting me those like the woman on tv.. but with another control on it for amplification, right now i have the ones behind the ears and they seem to work for the tinnitus and the hearing loss. But the aduiologist really wants me to try the other ones, she thinks they will be better, but the go right in the canal and youi can see them.. I feel like I am test driving cars.

    I hate getting up in the morning though cause the noise hits you right in the face even with all the white noise machines on. And I still cant take a nap during the day :(

    lillyrose Life is short live it not diet.

    I went and read about ABC's report" Buzz Kill: Scientists Aim To Stop Tinnitus." and ended up going to the American Tinnitus Assocation site and did a survey by a Richard Tyler PH.D. and the University of is to help doctors understand both tinnitus and tinnitus was kind of long but think it will help them to put everything together and maybe find a cause and cure for this and maybe Meniere's, which is different with in it's can have tinnitus and not have Meniere's.
    I just know the more the exposer to this disease the more people are it Tinnitus or Meniere's.
    I hate them both and wouldn't wish them on anyone.
