Dr. Nagler,

So sorry you're having health issues and I hope you're on the mend soon. It no fun being ill. Please know that your answers to my questions and this whole site have helped me so much and has given me the most important thing I believe...Hope....

I don't know if you remember me but I was rather frazzled when I posted, to say the least, after my tinitus appeared from no where when I awoke last August 11th, thinking some strange alarm was sounding in my home...And then I realized that I was the only one that could hear it. It was that loud to me. The following weeks were filled with fear and a feelings of hopelness when the doctors could not find a cause...and then I found your site after being scared to death reading another popular site; posted some questions here which you graciously took the time to answer never making me feel my fears were silly. (Thankyou) and have been reading here now and again.(not too much I promise!)

After three eye surgeries since that time and slowly recovering, (getting older is definitely not for sissies as my 94 year old father says), I have also been diagnosed with several vitamin deficiencies...especially the B vitamins. Although they do not yet know the root cause of this problem, I have been on a month of weekly B12 injections which will continue and glutithione IVs plus a few suppliments taken sublingually daily. I am also on only one eye drop now that the ingredients are on no ototoxic list I've read which may mean nothing but it does give me peace of mind which I'm finding does wonders when dealing with, what my ENT calls, my sudden onset tinnitus.

The oddest things seems to have happened this last month. I don't want to get my hopes up and it all may be a "in my head" but since the B12 injections and other treatments I have noticed the tinnitus has toned down a wee bit. Now it's not gone completely and far from it but it definitely is quieter although I notice I still react to my trigger foods and stress...but not as much.

In your opinion, is this a coincidence or can vitamin deficiency or better put not being able to absorb vitamins properly "create" tinnitus? I never would have known of this problem but I wasso tired beyond tired but thinking my fatigue was from three very complex and stressful surgeries but my GP thought it was something more and it was... and also said that this must have been happening for a long time.

Again, I'm not getting my hopes up that this will all dissappear when the vitamin levels get normal and /or they find the root of what is causing this but there seems to be a connection between my vitamin deficiency problem being treated and my tinnitus toning down a bit. I'm wondering if this is truly the case and if people with tinnitus should consider being tested for vitamin deficiencies?

I'll keep you posted as to if things continue to improve or not.. and I hope you're feeling better soon.

Dear Dr. Nagler,

I have no idea why my question posted twice! I read your answer that you graciously found time to do, came back just now to say thank you and there it was again.

So...thank you!
