I developed tinnitus about five months ago. Not sure what started it. Recently was referred to a very well-noted ENT. He told me I could use "nature sound" therapy. He also told me I could opt for a very expensive treatment called "masking devices". You may have heard about it already. They look like hearing aids that transmit a soft, low frequency, which in turn, retrains your brain to hear that sound only. He said people report good results from this therapy. They have to be worn about 1 to 2 years, and when they are taken off, the sound will be gone. However, he couldn't guarantee this would happen for me. They are about $1,500 per ear and insurance will probably not pay. I have researched extensively and have found nothing promising. I, too, use prayer. Maybe one day ours will be answered.
