Thank you Dr. Nagler for your compassion and empathy as well as your willingness to alleviate suffering. For all of those struggling, I hope these words provide comfort and hope. Listen to Dr. Nagler. Tinnitus does indeed go back in the barn. My tinnitus which I got from a muscle relaxant in August 2015 was an eight or a nine. Torture, torment, and insomnia ruled my life made worse by benzos and an year long withdrawal.

Three years later I can only hear my tinnitus if I listen for it. It began a long glacial fade last year and when it does go up it is a .75 on a scale of 1-10. I meditated into the sound for twenty minutes a day, went to the gym or ran every day, and stopped drinking coffee.

Reading Dr. Nagler's assurances that most people's t resolves itself gave me hope beyod measure. I actually met you in November 2015 for TRT but I was too strung out on benzos for it to work. Your Tinnitus Corner got me through. I work full time again, play all the acoustic music I want, and won the world championship in power lifting for my age and weight in Las Vegas last November.

I never, ever believed I would improve. I have severe OCD and am a type a lawyer from Philadelphia who obsesses over everything. But here I am and and barn door is closed. Forever. You will get better. Never give up.

JPN, I set up this board three years ago in the hopes that every once in a while what I write here might make some small difference in somebody's life.

I am very pleased to know that it made a difference in yours.

All the best -

Stephen M. Nagler, M.D.
