Ringing of Ears My Experiences With Ringing of Ears

Will Stem Cell Research Lead to a Tinnitus Cure?

Some of the stem cell research that’s taking place now is aimed at finding a tinnitus cure.  There is guarded optimism that this research might actually result in a cure for at least some people suffering from ringing of ears and tinnitus.

Basically the stem cells would be removed from embryos and converted to a different cell form.  These cells would then be used to grow new and hopefully healthy nerves in the ear.

Most scientists working in the hearing field feel that the majority of tinnitus cases are connected to being exposed to noises in the environment or workplace that were damaging over time to the ears.

My Tinnitus Was Caused by the Most Common Reason: Noise!

For me this is true.  Loud music lead me down the road to tinnitus.

People doing stem cell research feel that if they can regrow the hair cells in the inner ear, they would take over where damaged cells are no longer able to function resulting in ringing of ears.  Many types of stem cell testing are being done and finding a tinnitus cure is just one area that’s being looked into.

The problem lies in the fact that if the research shows promise then more testing must be done.  After that if the research shows a real cure is available, then there is normally a waiting period to get government approval, etc.

The cure if it comes would probably take another 10 years before it becomes available to the public.  That’s too long folks if you suffer like I did.  I needed something yesterday or at least now!

Many Remedies That We All Try

There are many remedies that are talked about but they seem to work for some people and not for others.  Then there are drugs and surgery which really haven’t shown much success.

Many of us first notice tinnitus when we’re trying to sleep.  My tinnitus when it began was pretty minor during the day but really starting roaring at night.  The result was little to no sleep.  I used ear plugs and for awhile they actually helped me get to sleep.

My tinnitus progressed as it does for most sufferers and pretty soon nothing seemed to work.  Not getting a good night’s sleep just makes it worse and from there it’s a downward spiral.

Not Cured but Getting There

Let me say that I’m not totally over my ringing of ears but I’m progressing towards a tinnitus cure.  The Tinnitus Remedy program consist of holistic, herbal remedies in a disciplined combination that is breaking my tinnitus down one piece at a time.  I hope you’ll go here to read about what’s given me relief and hope for an eventual cure.
