    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Tinnitus TIP costs nothing and it works!
    SirViver posted:
    I have noticed that when I lay back in the bath tub and slip my head beneath the water Tinnitus immediately improves! Sometimes it even stops! And when I am done with my bath, the Tinnitus is much better for much of the day. Unfortunately, the ringing in my ears always returns.

    I have never seen this TIP reported before! If you try my TIP and it helps, please email Mike at

    If you have any suggestions or remedies, please include them!

    Rod Moser, PA, PhD responded:
    This tip may work for you, but since there are hundreds of other causes (most sources of tinnitus are in the inner ear and brain), that it is not likely to help others in the same way.

    Have you ever had a diagnostic workup for your tinnitus to see if a cause was determined in your case?
