    Tinnitus Testimonial

    Monica Calvert

    (Permissions: full name)

    3 Years ago I suddenly developed very severe Tinnitus and some loss of hearing.  It happened in the night and was very frightening.  Consequently it triggered several panic attacks and insomnia (which I had never suffered from before).  Doctors and specialist both private and NHS gave me numerous tests.  They informed me that there was nothing they could do and that I would probably have tinnitus for life.  They warned me that my hearing could deteriorate further.  They said that they didn’t know what had caused it but suspected it was either a virus (I had a persistent dry cough at the time of the attack) or a side effect of the antibiotics my doctor had given me at that time.  I became very depressed as the quality of my life was severely affected.  The loud relentless ringing in my ear dominated everything.  I became anxious – worried that the tinnitus would get even worse and that I might lose my hearing altogether as the doctors said this was a possibility.   I seemed to be in a downward spiral and it was severely affecting both my working and personal life.

    The doctors had given up on me but I hadn’t given up on myself so I decided to try acupuncture as I had read that it could help tinnitus and I had found it had helped me many years ago when I suffered with dizziness.  I found Sean in Yellow Pages and went to see him.   I was extremely impressed. He deliberated my medical history thoroughly and after performing various tests and checking my “chi” (all painless) seemed confident he could help me – not only with the tinnitus, but the insomnia, anxiety, panic attacks and depression as well.  Sean’s philosophy on life is inspiring and his cheerful, positive approach is a tonic. Even after my first visit I felt a lot better.

    I found the acupuncture painless and relaxing.  Sean also gave me Chinese herbal tablets.  After the third treatment I began sleeping normally again much to my amazement as I had been suffering severe insomnia for almost 3 months.  I continued with regular treatments and gradually the tinnitus which had been driving me mad, began to lessen.  The depression lifted along with the anxiety and panic.  I began to feel like my “old” self again.  The tinnitus has been reduced by about 75% and it is now only a faint “hum” in the background and the excruciating high pitched ringing has gone.  It no longer dominates my life – I fact most of the time I don’t even notice it.. Sean gave me my life back!  I will always be grateful to him.
