It may be adhesive & respond well to acupuncture scar deactivation with or without e-stim or scar injection (not with steroids). Additionally, seeing ENT is a must for chronic tinnitus. Looks like you have already been diagnosed with stress headaches (does that mean tension headache?) you >>. ...Read more
