YES! A mariachi band or Quinceñera.... take with 3 Pacificos. However, it only lasts until the music wears off.

Seriously, I should mention if you do have Tiinnitus there ain't any meds for it... but there are a few things one can do for it, such as having soft background noise like easy music or tv on to help distract the constant ringing. Key is, SOFT sounds. Also there are other mitigating factors like your blood pressure that make a world of difference.... best see an Ear Doc sometime.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

If it don't stink, don't stir it....

and if it ain't disgusting, it ain't discussed.

I've got a fairly bothersome case of tinnitus as a result of listening to too much loud live music over the years. According to The Lancet medical journal, there is no effective medication for it, although there are some treatment options. I usually try to block it out, although there are times when it keeps me awake at night. I guess I'm reaping the dividends of the folly of my youth.

No meds in Baja California or anywhere else in the world for that matter.

I had this problem when in basic training in the army, at night, came too close to an ammo pit, I had Tinnitus, could not sleep, got addicted to sleeping pills, went to Walter Reed hospital, no cure.
Was offered a medical discharge fom the army .
Did not accept it, still sometimes I get the ringing in the ears, not bad anymore.That was 40 yrs. ago.
In that time we did not sue.

White noise helps, low background noise. At night I listen to George Noory on coast to coast cause I get bored and nod off quick. During the day any background sounds helps.

We had a guest once who had ringing in the ear and he had a fan going all night which he said worked.

I wish you luck with finding something that works well for you, I imagine the irritation must be awful.

I have it almost constantly, but I only realize it consciously when somebody else mentions having it. Thanks a lot. (-: Most of the time I just ignore it.

Good luck-------it is annoying.

Working around loud equipment most of my life, I have it pretty bad. I've tried most everything that claims to "cure" it. Nothing works. The best cure is to live in Baja on the beach where the sound of the surf drowns it out...or like mentioned earlier, put a fan on in the room where you sleep.

When my dog barks in my ear I develop Titotinnitus.

Same here Barry. I've had it since crashing hard on my motorcycle in 92. It doesn't really bother me. Sometimes it loud and sometimes not sometimes I don't think about it. It gets louder when I grit my teeth.

The sound of the ocean is the best therapy, as we all already know. No meds needed. No negative side effects. It couldn't be a simpler remedy.

If you can't hear it directly, supplement your environment with a water feature. Try it . You will like it. Mikey would like it. One would have to have a memory to relate to that last reference, but the truth remains. Water features, wherever they are, in whatever form they take, are transforming in their nature.

Thanks to all here. Give thanks to our vets over this memorial holiday in their honor.

I'm with you on this. I need to start asking my doctor for more than a week's supply each year.

The University of California at San Francisco offers tinitus treatment of various types though none are considered "cures". They use neuromonics
to desensitize people to the tinitus sound among other therapies that can help.
The first time I realized I had tinitus I was in Baja listening to the quiet and I kept hearing the shhshhshh sound. At least I knew it wasn't being caused by stress in my case.
