The tinnitus is much improved today, not nearly so loud. I cannot say it's the ginkgo biloba –it's supposed to take longer to act– but I am very glad the sound has diminished. I'd like it to just go away and stay away. Happily, my hearing is otherwise excellent.
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!
