My ears have been ringing constantly since the beginning of December! I have to complain tonight because they are so loud! The left is worse than the right. I turn up the TV and the sound bothers me. I turn it down and the ringing gets louder. The left ear has not let up once. The right has, twice since December...
 
Does anyone have a suggestion? I am desperate!

Neuro Antitox II or Neuro Antitox cns/pns. both for neutralizing toxins from borrelia burgdorfi....in the brain and nervous system. I have not used it for tinnitis, but I think it would work. also, from your previous post about body aches..these would help with that two. You can google and check out ingredients and what they do.

So sorry, sam!!! hope you feel better soon! that has to suck :(

You have my empathy. Have had tinnitis non-stop since the end of March - fortunately not as loud now as it was last spring. We are not sure in my case if it from the Lyme or from the Azithromycin. Because there are so many abx I can't take and I can usually tolerate the tinnitus we are sticking with the zithro for now. Weirdly the possibility it could be from the Tx rather than the Lyme is oddly consoling.

Hope you get some relief soon!

I totally feel your pain. I've only recently been diagnosed with Lyme, but I've had the ringing in my ears for years. I always attributed it to sinus issues, but now I know it's due to Lyme.

Thanks for the kind words all.. It's so annoying. I didn't know that Azithro could cause it. Funny, it's what I am on now!!

I am trying everything to get my ears to stop ringing. With lyme I have eliminated just about every food with taste and it seems the more i have done over the past year makes more problems. Between the brain fog and ears ringing i am going crazy. I feel like i have a hold on the diet and even started making videos https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ql69FOh_l5Y&t=13s to help others with the diet side. I my self am still stuck with brain fog then if that at all feels better for just a minute my ears are ringing off the hook. I just downloaded one of those noise music makers for tinnitus and listen to it all day long, problem i when its off i cant tell because my heads ringing. So the noise maker does help to a degree but not sure its usefull because its just another buzzing sounds. I am 6 months in with being treated by a LLMD, i feel less crazy and the racing thoughts i had in the beginning have stopped.

what i found online and doing every day for about 3 months
1. Every day i out lavender oil behind my ears
2. I thump the back of my head 50 times 5 times at least a day
3. avoiding sweets thats good in general
4. head stretch out > open mouth > pull ears down
I am going to make a video on this, i think it helps somewhat if you put them all together. Like the last one it strange but i can hear my ears popping and seems to east the ringing just a bit.

what is everyone else trying?

Welcome Jason. My husband's first symptom of lyme was tinnitus. I wrote this on Dec 6 2016

My husband's first major lyme symptom was tinnitus. After talking a lot with him I kind of thought his was lymph related. I started him on Japanese Knotweed and then Cleavers. I then gave him Red Sage and Skullcap. Then Astragalus and Cat's Claw. He said his tinnitus was a little better but then I gave him Red Root. Now his tinnitus is much better but still shows up once in awhile.

It has been a couple of months and he has added in some mushrooms and many other supplements.

What I did with him was a lot of research and then it was trial and error. He tried many things. He had to learn to listen to his body and figure out if it was helping or not. If not, we moved on. If it was helping, we stuck with it.

He says he occasionally has tinnitus now. Which is a heck of a lot better than full time.

Oh and he does a lavender spray on his pillow nightly and in our bedroom is a white noise machine so he can sleep. I actually got really used to that noise machine too.

My tinnitus began in my left ear in 1974. Right ear in the late '80's. Now have two more different tinnitus manifestations due to tbd. You'll get used to it. Only took me 35 years or so.
Infected October 2015, diagnosed per lab - RMSF October 2016. EBV, Mycoplasma pneumonia. WB band 41 positive, Babesia positive. Bart symptoms.

I am with you, unfortunately. My tinnitus started 1-2 weeks after starting Doxy in Aug/Sept 2016 and has only gotten worse over time. It never stops...it's there when I wake up and go to sleep. Interestingly, it has a pattern. It intensifies starting around 11am and continues to elevate through day. Seems to level off and diminish somewhat around 5-6pm, then begins to ramp up again around 8pm.

Can you give me an idea of how much is used of the knotweed, cleavers, sage, and skullcap. I am very open to trying new things. thanks for the response.

I've had tinnitus for many years now - and boy is it exhausting to deal with at times! But!! I have found some relief with using Lion's mane tincture. I'm not up to full doses yet (raising it very slowly along several other things), but even at just 12 drops twice a day it's slowed down my tinnitus. I even actually have short periods without any tinnitus at this point!! turn turn

It still returns right now, but even when it returns, I haven't gotten any of those really loud, super sharp/high pitched squealing lately either (I hope I haven't just jinxed myself!! LOL!).

It's also helped other areas of my body as well, particularly my hands/fingers, feet/toes and a funny spot - around my mouth and a few other places that I've noticed improvements.
