Thought I'd shove this on here as I know there's a few members like myself with the scourge of tinnitus and it might be of use to someone and hopefully it could help someone else. I read a few months ago that tinnitus can also be made worse by blood circulation. I know this means my smoking doesn't help, but hey ho. I also read that Ginkgo Billba is good for circulation. About 6 months ago I did have a shot at taking some, but gave up after about 2 weeks, thinking it didn't work. But about 3 months ago my tinnitus was getting loud as hell in one ear, (mine's a high pitched tone) and thought about giving it another shot. I originally got a tub of Tesco's Ginko Biloba tablets which was about £4 for 60 tablets. I did notice at the point where my tinnitus was at its loudest, after 2-3 weeks the level did drop From there I have started to use Morrison's ones (as Tesco had run out) and they seemed to work as well. I know this might not work for everybody, but for the sake of £4 it could be worth a shot and might be a help to someone! Also I have found out in the last couple of months that if I stuff my face with chocolate (Blokes can have choco fetishes! Plus it's only that and fags that are my vices)! My tinnitus gets louder. ******* strange I know, but say I ate a couple of Yorkie bars or similar in one evening, then I would notice a difference, then it takes about a day to go down again. Anyone else got anything that helps or aggravates it?
