Flying stops tinnitus for Steve


This is a guest article by Steve Elles.

Steve is Retail Director at Ascent Hearing, he wears hearing aids himself and also suffers from tinnitus.

I have had tinnitus since the age of 33. Well to honest, I’ve had “fizzy” tinnitus since I was about seven. But I’ve had pulsing, thumping, throbbing, whooshing tinnitus since 33. It’s not a depressing thing to have as I’ve not had silence for such a long time. However, I have tried eating vast swathes of Marmite (for the vitamin B), chewing decongestants, hot saunas, eight pints of water a day… nothing.

But, every time I fly, it goes away. Only for a couple of days, but it goes – completely! I have absolutely no idea why this is but I thought I’d share it with you. Steve I believe you get tinnitus although I’m not sure what type. There are probably other people who watch this website who also suffer from pulsatile tinnitus. Does anyone have any similar experiences or comments? I can see that the Internet is rammed full of dodgy “Cures”. I can also see that everyone has their own little combination of things that help reduce it.

Does anyone else have a positive result when they fly?
