Tinnitus Treatment - Causes and treatment of tinnitus

I get tinnitus that is pretty constant, however, can get worse with a migraine. I am not sure what you want to blame for it. Chronic migraines. Fibromyalgia. Visual snow syndrome. Or an overlap symptom from them all. However, I have had it for a very, very long time. I can remember it as a teenager. So right around the time the visual snow poofed into existence so did the tinnitus. By then the fibro already existed but the migraines with aura did not.

I do wonder if you have tinnitus from these sorts of conditions if it is like having vertigo from migraines... where they can't do rehabilitation for it when you still have the condition itself, such as migraines, not managed at all. Such that you get rid of the tinnitus only to have it reappear not to long after with the next migraine, getting more and more constant? Or once it is gone it stays gone? I do know no neuro ever suggests doing anything about it when it comes to migraines, even if my is not just with the migraines. Perhaps they do not know, never assume a neuro knows all. They rather don't.

Right now I take ginkgo for the tinnitus as if I take it every single day it dampens the loudness of it, except when it is enhanced by a wicked migraine. But overall it is dampened quite well by taking the supplement regularly. It must be taken regularly however. And it is true a good wicked migraine that muffles my hearing still will temporarily increase the ringing pitch.

100 Symptoms of Fibromyalgia

There was a site that had this and I had linked to it on Tumblr but it is gone. So I had to hunt down someone who found my post and posted the whole thing in a forum. Anyway it is around but I'm posting it here so I will not have to hunt it down to reference it. Now we all know the major symptoms are the wide-spread pain, but our pain isn't just muscle pain... it can be nerve types of pain as well, and the fatigue and the insomnia. And even among symptoms there are some far more frequent than others, but it should be said we have categories... like the cognitive dysfunction, which is a broad one that has more than one symptom and we often just say fibrofog. The insomnia... more than one sleeping disorder. So the list is interesting.

__ Fatigue, made worse by physical exertion or stress
__ Activity level decreased to less than 50% of pre-illness activity level
__ Recurrent flu-like illness
__ Sore throat
__ Hoarseness
__ Tender or swollen lymph nodes (glands), especiall…

When I say I am good

When people ask me how I am feeling 99% of the time I am lying. I often say 'not bad', because I feel it is slightly more honest than 'good' or 'fine'. Got sick of fine. Anyway, I lie for many reasons. 

I'm having a good pain day: They happen and I'll say that I'm good, fine, not bad. I even feel like I can accomplish great things... in moderation. In which case, relatively speaking, for Me I am not actually lying. This is a Good pain day, it is Not Bad for me and I am Fine with it. I just don't want to explain: I just don't want to explain how crappy I feel and in which way I mean. Because I am tired of it. I just want to deal with it, without having to discuss it, mention it or have any sympathy expressed about it. Because it can be complicated. It may be a migraine with specific symptoms. Maybe it is a FM flare though. Or both. And then I have to explain what it is because most people think my migraines are the main issue but I could be FM…
