The Sound Of Silence

A decade ago, Martin’s life changed when a firearm discharged near him, causing a constant ringing in his ears known as tinnitus. Initially, he thought the ringing would fade away like the temporary discomfort experienced after a concert. However, when it persisted, he consulted a doctor who informed him that he would likely have tinnitus for the rest of his life.

Despite the prognosis, Martin adapted to the ringing, which fortunately had a tolerable pitch. For ten years, it remained stable and didn’t cause any significant disruption in his life. But everything changed when Martin contracted COVID. His tinnitus intensified to an unbearable level, making everyday tasks, work, and sleep extremely difficult.

Desperate for help, Martin sought out an ENT doctor at a local hospital. Despite COVID-related staffing challenges, he was able to get a hearing test that indicated he could hear just fine. The hospital promised an audiologist would call him in a few days, but that call never came. It turned out that their audiologist had quit even before Martin took the hearing test, leaving him frustrated and still in search of answers.

The Journey To Recovery

Determined to find help, Martin decided to visit his hometown of Houston, known for its abundance of doctors and the renowned Texas Medical Center. There, he found an audiologist with high credentials and state-of-the-art equipment. This new audiologist introduced Martin to advanced tests and treatments he had never encountered before, providing him with renewed hope in his battle against tinnitus.

At this point, Martin had met with an expensive, highly-credentialed audiologist who recommended a tinnitus masker as the primary treatment option. But the prohibitive cost of the masker led Martin to seek alternative solutions. This search brought him to Dr. Google, where he discovered Dr. Ben Thompson’s YouTube channel and began to hear stories similar to his own.

Driven by his tinnitus-induced anxiety, sleep difficulties, and the negative impact on his work and mental health, Martin reached out to Dr. Thompson’s team at Treble Health for help. After connecting with one of their audiologists, he was guided through a strategy that had helped others find relief from tinnitus. Martin also participated in a group session, where he learned new tips and practices from others facing similar challenges.

With the support of Dr. Thompson’s team, Martin followed the plan laid out by the audiologist and, over time, saw significant improvements in his tinnitus. The once-debilitating ringing eventually returned to its previous, more manageable level. The experience underscored the importance of finding a supportive, knowledgeable team to work with during difficult times.

Martin’s Treatment Options

Martin’s treatment plan to reduce his tinnitus included a variety of techniques, such as using tinnitus maskers and white noise before bedtime. Despite initially being reluctant due to the numerous articles suggesting there was no treatment for his condition, Martin decided to give it a try, and the results were encouraging.

In addition to the prescribed plan, Martin also turned to acupuncture, where needles were placed around his ears. Although unsure of its direct impact on his tinnitus, he found the experience relaxing and helpful in managing his symptoms. Conscious relaxation, deep breathing, and remaining present also significantly influenced his journey to tinnitus relief.

When asked about his tinnitus levels in the last two weeks, Martin reported a noticeable improvement. On a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being very soft and 10 being very loud, Martin’s tinnitus is currently at a 3, much better than where he began. When asked about the most challenging times in the past year, he admitted it was unbearable at times, rating it as an 8 or 9.

Martin’s journey with tinnitus teaches us that even though complete silence may not be achievable, significant improvement is possible. Unfortunately, many doctors and individuals believe there’s no relief for tinnitus, and the idea of “learning to live with it” can cause anxiety and distress.

When researching online, it’s vital to avoid negative stories and focus instead on information that can lead to improvement.
