Comment from: I Surrender, 19-24 Female (Patient) Published: December 01

I'm 24 years old; I've had Tinnitus since I was 12. I hear noise on the right ear (sounds like air escaping) I have seen 20 doctors and they have all told me that there are no problems with my ears and it's not caused by illness or whatsoever and have not recommended any medication or techniques to reduce the noise that I'm experiencing. This is a nightmare for me I really miss a quite sleep at night. The noise would strangely stop when I actually put pressure on the vein of my neck using my fingers. I really pray to God that this noise stops one day as I still have hope even after 12 years.

I found this to be very informative, although disappointing. Apparently I will have to live with this condition with very little hope for relief. I may try Ginko-Biloba. I advise any military person, or persons involved in business related to noise to use ear protection. My years in a Navy engine room may have caused my problem.
