Thank you very much for your help. I have been having that annoying ringing in my right ear for 2 years. I saw an ear special and left with only knowing the medical diagnosis, no prescription, no treatment, but continue to search the web for home remedies. When I came across your article the heated cloth I knew that was the one to try. I used a hot towel 2x daily for 20 seconds, and got relieve instantly but continue the treatment for 2 weeks. At present I have no occurrence and pray it solve the problem.

Thank You,
Grace T

These home remedies will not help the severity of my tinnitus. Nighttime is the worst for me and I need
sleep. What do you suggest? I am a senior citizen and don't want to disrupt my balance also. This onset has caused me a lot of anxiety.
Thank you!
