Hi. My post says it. I had tinnitus in my left ear - really noticeable, not background at all and, thank gods, only light "why is everything at an angle" vertigo. My ENT said "good luck, hopefully, it goes away in a month or so" and that was all I got. I stumbled upon this forum from my therapist - she told me to find support. Honestly, I was about ready to hit the exit button, I can't live like this. Crying to hours, not going out, they told me salt was the enemy - I stopped eating. I've been in terrible shape. So Today I started lysine, A time-release vitamin C, and an over the counter tinnitus lipoflavanoid thing. I do have herpes AND I DID have a bad flair before this all started - is this really the cause? I'm just grasping at straws, my therapist looked me in the eye and told me if I'm not better mentally we should consider a "short term in-patient stay" at a clinic and I really might do it. I just need some help, encouragement, if this works, I'm going to be forever indebted. Does this work?
