Hello, I am Dr Stan and I will help you today. Tinnitus is a problem that occurs in later life and can be very annoying. It is usually a problem of the hearing nerve (8th cranial nerve) and unfortunately there is no definitive treatment. The symptoms can be lessened. If you are having difficulty falling asleep, play soft music. Be sure to have any excess wax removed from your ear canals. Opening your mouth and stretching you lower jaw when the ringing starts can also help. Keeping well hydrated and using nasal saline nose spray is also beneficial. There is a new vitamin/mineral formula being advertised, but I can't tell you it will help. This problem is common among people who when younger listened to very loud music in concerts and also factory workers exposed to loud machinery. I hope this information helps and please feel free to ask me any additional questions.
