Reducing the triggers that aggravate your symptoms can be the most effective way to reduce and relieve the discomfort. Included in these behaviors and stimuli are drinking alcoholic or caffeinated beverages, all forms of tobacco usage and ingesting many non-steroidal anti-inflammatories such as aspirin. Have your doctor or audiologist recommended a support group or forum for you. By sharing some of the issues you are having with tinnitus with others who have the same thing, it could help you alleviate some of the stress you feel from it. You may also learn some coping techniques that others have used to help them get through it. Whether you have an audiologist, ENT specialist or your family doctor, you need to realize that while they will help you, the most important person to care for you is you. Only you know just how bad you are being impacted by this condition and whether an intervention is helping or not. Even the finest doctors will get better results from a cooperative, fully-engaged patient, so you should think of yourself as an important part of the team. Take a walk to put your tinnitus at bay. Distraction can be a very effective tactic when you are trying to live with the constant ringing in the ears. Walking can help in relieving the symptoms you are experiencing. Try a stroll along a shoreline or in the wind to increase the effectiveness.
