I had no strength to fight the audiologist who sold me "white noise/masking hearing aids" that, despite my discipline, hope, and full cooperation, didn't work for me. There are other causes of synapse xtas well which include Anemia - where the thin blood rushes around the body so quickly that it can cause a sound. I've tried natural medicines, synapse xtmaskers, hypnosis, synapse xtretraining therapy, ginko, and so on. Perhaps the synapse xtwas caused by all of those over-the-counter decongestants I was taking for my flu, or maybe it was the stress of being at the pinnacle of my performing career, or maybe it was the news that my wife, Nancy, was giving up a good paying job, or a combination thereof. Some people find it distracting to have the TV or radio playing while working or studying, but for sufferers of tinnitus, it can be a welcome sound.
