Hi Lynny, ((( Smiles )))
I posted that information for others that are looking for a provider of acupuncture.. So acupunture worked for you as well.
For me.. It took lots of treaments as my provider said I should not have waited so long and did what you did.. Go in right away..
So it was along term treatment plan for me.. When I did see her.. I was really messed up but she thought she could still help me and I believe she did..
I was lucky to have found a skilled provider that met the criteria of what I listed above.. Her mother was a skilled acupuncture provider as well.
I was treated by both.. I started the treatments before I came to the archive board and to be able to go..
I had to wear packed silicon earplugs and muffs to leave the house with my mother haveing her van parked right close to my front door with the engine off but I did this because I new I needed help badly..
My treatments I had throught allot of 03 with my pink noise and then sound therapies..
Tapering off in 04.. I know the high pitched squeal tinnitus.. That kind that would shriek badly and for along duration with a noise exposure such as that...
Though I didn't go outside for months besides theses provider treaments
as I stayed mostly in my bedroom..
And always wore plugs on venturing out of my room back then in my early days..
My neighbor used circular saws from time to time mostly in his garage..
I had bad hyperacusis and my tinnitus was very sensitive to sounds.
It took me alot of treatments and dedication to going as I really didn't want to leave the house at all back then but I'm glad I pushed myself into going..
It was well worth the trouble when I look back on it..
But my tinnitus.. Was of the long standing duration of time..
It .. was really bad at one time.. And it got better.. Over time.. She said.. She was treating my sound sensitivy " the nerves " as well.
What she did..
Worked well for me..
I would do it all over the same way.. Just like that again...I don't know how all that got better myself.
But the tinnitus did.. So I know bad tinnitus.. Noisy tinnitus.. Can change over time..
But I believe that my acupuncture provider.. Was very instrumental in that happening for me..
I have a very well formed plan going. Building up with different kinds of sound therapies.. Over time.. With treatments going on at the same time as well.
Herbal Chineses medications made for me...
I'm glad it worked well for you too.
And because of my expirence.. I believe it can with the right provider..
My provider did not believe mine was allergy related.. I think she thought expecially my hyperacusis.. Was the nerves...
And I think she helped build up my nerves and helped my hyperacuusis overtime to get better..
I really do.. But it was dedication of many many treatments in a long term plan..
To get better over time....
