      Thank you. It is good to know the why of the condition. Plus I’ll enjoy (I guess?) reading about “disorganized" migrational layering of neurons & neurotransmitter imbalance.

      Hi Have you found anything to help with tinnitus? I’ve had it for more than a decade 24 hrs/day. I’m used to it but wouldn’t be sorry to ‘hear it go.’

        Not really. Unlike other forms of tinnitus (and visual disturbances) that are vascular in nature or from some sort of injury, our form is likely due to a thalamo-cortico dysrhythmia. It is a combination of somewhat "disorganized" migrational layering of neurons, as well as, some degree of neuronal anatomical aberration and neurotransmitter imbalance.

        Tinnitus can be caused by a lack of magnesium but you've got to be very to precise in how much magnesium you use if for instance you use indigestion tablets that are magnesium carbonate you would have to add that into however much you take as a supplement or you will become very familiar with the toilet

        You can use "chelated" magnesium supplements. Easy to find. Generally better tolerated and absorbed. Magnesium is also good for relaxing the heart and blood vessels, helping with anxiety-induced blood pressure issues. Having said that, I take a fair amount of magnesium, 1000-1500mg/day, and no change in my tinnitus,...but perhaps worth a try anyway.

      What does Neonatal mean?

        Neonatal is in reference to the neonatal period, the first 30 days after birth. I work at a children's hospital as a respiratory therapist in the neonatal intensive care unit. All things airways and breathing as it pertains to newly born infants.

      That bit about cognative and emotional empathy to the new kid really helped me, thank you
