My tinnitus has been really kicking up over the past few days. That's the so-called "ringing in the ears" that people can get. In my case it's a very high-pitched sound, not a pure tone, over a range of frequencies so high it's a combination of squeal and a hiss. Fortunately it's something I've been able to tolerate pretty well, only occasionally getting really annoying, as it has lately. I've decided to give ginkgo biloba a try; there have been some positive results reported with that. I've started taking 60 mg twice a day with meals for a total of 120 mg — what Dr. Weil recommends. If it doesn't work for the tinnitus, it's said to have other benefits so it hopefully won't be a total waste. We'll see how it goes!
Husband has had it for years and I have developed it over the last year. Most of the time both of us can ignore it but at times I wonder why nobody else can hear it. Hope you get relief.
The tinnitus rarely bothers me as much as it did last week. Often it happens when I've been riding my bicycle for a long period with shoulders down and head up… lots of stress to the back area of the neck. I don't know what triggered this episode. — JG
