It WORKED for me!
on January 23, 2014
I started having a deep rumbling sound in my head and initially, thought that it was because our neighbors had left some kind of a fan running in their townhouse when they went away. It drove me up the wall!! The sound was only "gone" when I was outside or in the car. I did a lot of research and for a time thought that perhaps it WAS caused by something creating sounds that only a miserable few could hear. (Look online and you'll see what I'm talking about.) THAT made me more miserable as it seemed that there was no way of getting rid of the noise.
I went to an ENT and she checked me out, did some hearing testing and said, "I hear there are some supplements that work for some people". So, I went online and did some more searching. The tinnitus had been going on for almost a year and I was desperate for relief, even just a little relief. I was so sick of hearing sound like a rumbling, idling diesel engine in my head that I thought I could lose it! I didn't, but...there were times I cried.
I had a hard time with any sound in my left ear. On the phone, people's voices were much deeper than normal. Music sounded strange on that side and doing normal household activities, many sounds were louder and grating. Some sounds would reverberate in my head. Some days were worse than others. All with no end in sight, according the the ENT who gave me no real hope...and suffers with it herself!!
Then, I found this product in a health food store. I decided to check Amazon for better pricing and bought some. I took it just like the original bottle said, twice a day, everyday, for 3+ months. You know what?...it worked! Over time (about 2-3 months or so) I noticed the sound got quieter!! HALLELUJAH!!!
Then, I ran out of the product. I thought, that's okay, I'm fine now. But, I noticed that over a few weeks time, the noise had come back. It was just as loud and maddening as it had been! I could hear it even when lying down to sleep. So, I bought some more Ring Stop and took it as directed, again. Over just a few weeks, (it took less time this time around), the sound is so quiet that I'm not sure it's even really there anymore. :)) TAKE IT. GIVE IT TIME. Don't despair!!
I learned a few tricks for dealing with the noise while I waited to see if the product would work.
1. DO NOT LISTEN to the noise. Don't focus on the sound(s). Put on music or TV or white noise of some kind (a fan, ocean sounds, ect.) to turn your attention away from the noise.
2. Learn to relax and enjoy what you're doing and turn your attention elsewhere.
3. Putting the palm of your hand over the "noisy" ear can help stop the sound temporarily.
Don't let the negative reviews prevent you from at least giving this product a good, long TRY! What have you got to lose but the madness?...and gain peace!
