Dear Dr. Gott: I have been diagnosed with tinnitus and told there is nothing I can do for it. Would you know of an herbal remedy or natural cure I might try?

Dear Reader: Tinnitus is defined as a noise, ringing, clicking or buzzing in the ears that affects more than 12 million Americans. Common causes are ears

blocked by wax and damage from loud noises such as from lawn mowers, engines and heavy equipment.

Tinnitus isn't an actual condition, but a symptom of an underlying problem, such as injury to the ear, a circulatory-system disorder or simple age-related

hearing loss. Less common conditions are Meniere's disease and acoustic neuromas. Some antibiotics, cancer medications, diuretics and almost 200 other

medications are linked to tinnitus.

The most common type of tinnitus is known as subjective, caused by problems in the outer, middle or inner ear where tiny hairs move as a result of sound-wave

pressure. Tinnitus results when the hairs become bent or broken.

Avoid alcohol, loud sounds and other triggers. If you are bothered while trying to sleep, listen to music (or better still, static) from a radio at low volume.

If you are on any medication that is linked to tinnitus, ask your doctor to switch you to another drug.

Herbal remedies include feverfew, hawthorne, rosemary, ginkgo biloba and essential oils. Vitamins and mineral remedies include magnesium, vitamins A and C, and

bioflavonoids. I am not sure how effective vitamins, minerals or herbs might be. The only thing I can say is that they should not cause any harm if taken

according to packaging recommendations. An over-the-counter drug known as Lipo-Flavonoid has met with success, according to a number of my readers.

Because you indicate nothing can be done for your tinnitus, I assume you have seen an ear-nose-and-throat specialist. If not, that is your first step. Determine

the reason for this annoyance and demand an understandable explanation. If you remain dissatisfied, request a second opinion from your primary-care physician
