A New Treatment For Ringing In The Ears?

Posted by John Kuhnlein | Feb 19, 2021 | 0 Comments

Though it is not likely to be a reason for Social Security to find that you are disabled, ringing in the ears is serious. The condition, called tinnitus, is said to affect as many as 1 in 7 people worldwide.  It is especially common among older people. So far, doctors have not divined a cure for this condition. Most

Ring! Ring!

sufferers are left with home remedies and doubtful claims from quacks.

Headphones And Tongue Zappers?

New research, however, shows that a device could take away tinnitus for as long as 12 months at a time. It sounds more like science fiction than science, but apparently, it works. The idea is to combined blue-tooth headphones and 32 electrodes that attach to the tip of the tongue. The patient controls the entire contraption with a remote control.  Doctors recommend using this device for one hour a day for 12 weeks.

Though it sounds more than a little odd, tinnitus sufferers report getting real relief.  Two-thirds of the people who zapped their tongues for an hour a day for three months said they had medical improvement.

Placebo Effect?

Before rushing out to try this device, to be marketed as Lenire, I would advise waiting. I have a strong suspicion that the positive results are more evidence of the placebo effect than anything else.

If you suffer from tinnitus, keep Lenire in mind and talk to your doctor about it.

About the Author

John Kuhnlein

Since 1992, I have been helping the people of Southern Arizona get the benefits they are due. Before devoting all my efforts to assisting people with Social Security disability claims, I also handled such complex lawsuits as medical malpractice and products liability. I brought to my Social Security cases all the skills and attention to detail that I developed in the courtroom. I approach each Social Security disability case as if it were a million-dollar lawsuit. For the people trying to get Social Security benefits, their claim is every bit as important. Because I have personally handled so many Social Security cases, I have refined the skills I need to win your case for you. I have helped people win cases for every kind of ailment from arthritis to valley fever. At present, I am focused on helping those persons with neurological and orthopedic disorders. Because claims for people over age fifty bring additional complications, I particularly seek out those cases to work on. I regularly write about back and spine conditions on my blog. I actively seek out the latest information about orthopedic and neurological disorders to ensure I can represent my clients as effectively as possible. Because of my current focus, I regret that I am not able to take any cases for mental disorders. If you are over age fifty and suffer from any orthopedic or neurological disorder, please contact me at once.
