I caused it for myself using aspirin(RPF), and it won't go away, stuck with now for about a year.

Manganese has been suggested on this site, manganese doesn't work well with me though.

I have it from audible damage by gunfire among other things - I'm pretty used to it at this point, but I'd jump at the opportunity to get rid of it.

When I've had periods of tinnitus it's definitely been related to gaba/glutamate balance being out of whack. Restoring that balance can be a tricky one, though.

Interesting. Does this same theory apply to tinnitus that onset after exposure to loud noises? Such as gunshots, etc.
Yes, because its considered a vestibular stress response. :)

May have to give this a try. Is there a proper test to tell if you are low or high histamine?

If I could get rid of my tinnitus I would be thrilled.

Not as far as I know...blood test. You could experiment with L-Histidine. See if that works. Betahistine is next level, you could try that as well. International Drug Mart sells it for pretty cheap.

Some people say its due to frequencies, other's say its osteoporosis of the skull/bones in the ear. I find it very dependent on diet. I get tinnitus time to time but the better my diet, the ringing comes on and only lasts for 1-3 seconds and its gone.
