    Default A possible link between diet drinks and Tinnitus

    http://www.healthyhearing.com/report...e-and-tinnitus

    I know I have guilty of drinking them in the past and still do every now and then. And that may explain why the ringing in my hears are worse at time.

    I have also been told in the past that caffeine is a cause of ringing in your ears.

    If that's true, I'd opt to keep the ringing!

    Weird. I thought we already knew about an association between tinnitus and aspartame. Aspartame isn't as good as people led us to believe.

    Hmmm, I didn't read anything that would lead me to believe that there is hard data to support those claims. But I concur that diet sodas are generally no good for us. (Said the guy with tinnitus who limits himself to two per day)

    I have not had diet drinks or any thing like sweet and low for a month now and I have notice that my ringing in my ears is down. I did make a stupid mistake and not wear enough ear protection for shooting at an indoor range and had an increase for about 2 weeks but now it is back down to well below where it was before.

    I don't ever use diet drinks, and my caffeine intake is minimal. Yet I have bad tinnitus.

    I'll occasionally have a few Starbucks coffees per day when on business trips but it does not impact the severity of the tinnitus.

    My understanding is that all of the assumed links to tinnitus are guesses based on minimal scientific evidence. Sadly, it will probably be a long time before any real progress is made in the field.

    And severe tinnitus (Does the noise in my head bother you?)

    I'm thinking there is a link between tinnitus and TP because every person has used lots of TP.
