Just a reminder for tinnitus newbies ...
Most tinnitus sufferers find meaningful lasting relief. Either their tinnitus goes away or they cease being bothered by it over time. The former is obviously preferable, but the latter is just fine too. The very negative and critical postings you occasionally see here or that dominate some other boards come from the distinct minority whose tinnitus has not gone away or who continue to be bothered by it. There are no sites with the URLs www.MyTinnitusDisappeared.com or www.TinnitusNoLongerBothersMe.com.
Something to keep in mind.
