Cure Tinnitus Show #19

I wonder if you have any thoughts about my latest T variations…

I’ve had tinnitus in my left ear since its hearing was impaired by an operation – initially it was horrendous. I’ve always been sensitive to noise in any case, and I’m also a musician of sorts. Lately I’ve been managing it better – ie I’ve had more “better” days (although when it returns after a good spell I notice it more, even if it is relatively quiet); however, in the last few years I’ve been hearing ticking noises in my right ear, and in the last couple of years these noises have become more frequent. They sound as if something physical is happening; I am often annoyed by crackling noises which are not dissimilar in my left ear – sometimes, more annoyingly, when the T is relatively Ok in that ear.

I had thought that these ticking noises – sometimes singular, sometimes in a cluster, sometimes quite quiet, sometimes louder – could be objective tinnitus, but an ENT specialist is sure this is not the case. These noises have been getting to me lately, and no doubt the anxiety has not helped the T in the other ear. A less rational part of me sees/hers them as “out to get me”, the last straw etc etc. My more rational self sees a lot in Dr Sarno’s “divided mind” thesis that chronic pain and other syndromes, including tinnitus, are psychosomatic – ie an attempt by a part of the brain to divert one’s attention from unconscious rage, sadness etc. If one accepts this diagnosis the symptoms often disappear – difficult, of course, as T can give rise to a load of irrational thoughts.

I could go on, but I would be very interested to know what you think of my ticking ear.

G.

PS EFT would seem to offer real possibilities in tinnitus management at the very least. Also, mindfulness meditation etc.

…I do have something to share…

As your mind grapples with tinnitus, you can consider resting in your body…or creating an environment in which you can do so…and that might only be at a therapist’s office.

I’ve experienced total tinnitus silence during a Cranio-sacral session. Since then, I’ve moved back into a whisper of chronic tinnitus that does not bother my work, but still…I’ll be applying all of the components of the CureTinnitus.org program soon…hmm…can we help hold each other accountable?

I’m going to send a message to everyone about that…what an idea…what do you think?

Another thing is, clicking or screeching, howling or motorcycle noise-ing…my experience is that people experience relief in direct proportion to how thoroughly they apply these four CureTinnitus.org Program elements:

1. Build a network of support (relaxing, helpful, funny)
2. Get appropriate and relaxing body work (massage, cranio sacral, etc., find what suits you)
3. Get appropriate and relaxing counseling (psychotherapy, counseling, etc., find what suits you)
4. Do your personal relief stuff, get the rest you need, go on those walks, take time out for yourself, yes, do some stuff for yourself.

Do process that rage stuff…and we’ll cover this more during the show…and please remember, I’m just the coordinator and founder around here…Julian is the therapist and teacher…so I’m a fellow student doing the best I can…

…hey, and do tell me how I’m doing 🙂

Sincerely,
Dainis

Module 3 Summary and Video

CureTinnitus.org Module: Accepting Your Role In Tinnitus

Level 3 Resigned

  • Tinnitus is like a: Doctor. Starts to accept T begrudgingly and listen to the advice it is trying to give you
  • Effect on life: Accepts that changes are needed for T to back off. Accepts support and help.
  • Feelings: Resignation, acceptance, sadness, begrudging
  • Mindset: Sometimes can focus away from T. I’m responsible, so how do I get out of this?
  • Awareness: Realises that body and mind need attention and sorting out
  • Challenge: To let T show you what makes you feel better. To learn from T rather than fight it.

My question for the tinnitus live show no.18 is: In the e-book Julian says that exercise is really important. But in one of his tinnitus shows (I don’t remember which one) he said that sex and exercise make tinnitus worse. From my knowledge adrenaline is secreted during exercise but absorbed quicker as well. Could Julian ellaborate on that because it’s a crucial point.

Member Question

Dear Julian, I woke up one morning jumped out of bed quickly and the tinnitus started. My husband was away for 10 days the only time in the 40 years of marriage I was on my own. By the time he came home I was very anxious as my brother has suffered from tinnitus for 5 years and his was very bad and was suicidal for 2 years and I thought this was going to be me.

We were going to Thailand for our daughters wedding and all I wanted was to be free of this noise in my ears. By the time we left I was depressed and the doctor put me on anti depressants and unfortunately they reacted badly and while I was away I suffered badly from panic attacks, my ears were highly sensitive and I was a mess. With flights, elevators and just the stress of travel as we were aways for a month by the time I arrived home I felt I had a breakdown. I could not go back to work, I didn’t like being alone and I as desperate to be normal. My doctor changed my medication and it has help me. I believe the tinnitus was due to stress and grief that had occurred in my life the eight months before.

My husband and I have had lots of tragedy in our lives the worse losing a daughter at the age of 16 to a (more…)

Cure Tinnitus Show Episode #17
2010: Monday March 1, 2:00PM GMT (London Time).

Member Questions and call for folks to send me questions for Paul Carrington of Banish Tinnitus.

My tinnitus is initially very mild last Feb. when I first notice it. I have to go to a very quiet toilet and close the door to hear it. The other time would be before I go to bed and waking up in the morning when my bedroom is very quiet. My wife told me she had much worse tinnitus in her since the teenage year but she was never bothered with it. Now she only hear it when I complain. But somehow, I could never take my mind off it.

Here is a YouTube Excerpt for visitors getting to know us…
