Keeping a home diary of the ringing events, or what may increase it or decrease would be valuable- write down your what you are eating, pain if any, what ear/ears, lying down or upright.

I cant use Accutane because i get tinnitus from it. what else can i use to get rid of my acne vulgaris forever?
