Hi, my name’s Nicole. I have tinnitus in both my ears and i have since i was younger. I went to a few ENT’s and they wanted me to take special pills and do a CAT scan. Sorry if the spellings off. But they also said there is no real cure for tinnitus. I was wondering what you did to help treat it. I started going to acupuncture and since then it has started to decline greatly. Are the other ENT’s wrong?


Hi Nicole,

You are on the wrong website.  I don’t know of any joints in the ear !!  this is an arthritis website !!  Good luck !
