    Does anyone have ideas on the actual cause of tinnitus? I’ve dealt with this for quite while and has not found any success treating it. It seems worse at night but is pretty constant throughout the whole day. Aspirin made it really bad for a day or two so I don’t use that. I know salicylate seems from good have a role in this for me. Any other thoughts? High serotonin? Perhaps try cleansing gut?

    Taurine could help. If you do decide to use it, start small, about 500g once a day & then build up. It helps my tinnitus, but it has taken months of being consistent with it

    Heard of taurine chelating minerals like copper. Tinnitus can be induced by significant stressors as well. High copper intake seems to make it more likely at least for me. How's zinc intake? Ever tried it for tinnitus?

    Zinc intake is pretty high with all the organ meats I eat

    Do you have excessive mucus in your throat? Post-nasal drip? Cognested sinuses? Does your ears pop when swallowing?

    None of those. My ears occasionally feal full or will ring really loudly and then go deaf for a split second. But other than that it's a pretty consistent high pitch ring

    Intestinal irritation does it for me, anti serotonin substances do help.
