Tinnitus and Lucid Dreaming

Hi,

I am currently 19 years old and have been suffering from tinnitus for 7 years (Tinnitus is basically "ear ringing"). I tried nearly everything to cure it with absolute zero success. All I learned is that the "sound" I'm "hearing" is not proper sound that is objectively measurable, but in fact my own brain feeding me this signal.

It even happened to me once, that a nurse who was measuring the intensity of the sound, accused me of making it all up. And in fact, what they did measure, eventually, is that I have solid sound perception, with 1% deviation.

This constant high pitched "noise" (the quality of the sound is resembling of turning off old TV) is remarkably tiring and stressful, even after being with me for such a long time.

So to get to the point,
I am asking whether I would be hearing this ringing even while lucid dreaming,
and if lucid dreaming could help me relax from this constant tension.

Thank you in advance, and if someone has experience with tinnitus and LD, please, let me know.

Regards,
-O.A. ;)

the answer is yes and no if your so uset to hearing the ringing that your subconscious finds it normal yes but you could suppress it in the lucid dream if you find that difficult you could reprogram your subconscious that its not a normal thing that shouldnt be there

UpStream,
I am sorry that you have a significant problem with tinnitus. I do think it is possible to heal oneself or others in lucid dreams. Here are several articles about healing in lucid dreams and visualizing healing energy.

- "Healing the Whole Self Through Radical Lucid Dreaming" - Reality Sandwich - realitysandwich.com - by Robert Waggoner

- Dream Speak- "An Interview With Ed Kellogg, PhD" - dreaminglucid.com
Includes Ed's description of using chants and magic spells in lucid dreams

- "Healing Hands/ Confessions of a Clairsentient" - siannaphey.wordpress.com

- "Energy Balls For Healing and Sensing Energy" - pjentoft.com
Visualizations used in Reiki practice

Here is some information about a newer treatment for tinnitus called "notched sound therapy".
In this type of sound therapy, the user determines the internally perceived troublesome tinnitus sound frequency. (An audiologist can help with this testing.) There are some some notched sound therapy Apps for smart phones. (Quality and price can vary a lot.)

Then the user listens to music which has the tinnitus sound frequency filtered out. Theoretically, over time, brain neuroplasticity may allow the volume of the bothersome tinnitus sound to decrease.
