About Stop the Ringing

Stop the Ringing was created to bring together people who suffer from Tinnitus, and their loved ones, so we can share what works and what doesn’t in treating the wretched condition.

There are so many pills, programs and devices out there that claim to cure tinnitus and yet medical science still says “there’s no cure”. Surely, if one of these solutions offered a miracle fix for T, the entire world would know about it, given that 1-in-5 of us suffers from the condition.

Tinnitus Can Unite Us!

Even if there is no “cure”, at Stop the RInging we can come together to discuss what’s working for us, as well as what isn’t. Are you planning to try some new pill or supplement or device? Let us all know how it’s working for you. Or if you have a question, bring it to this community and maybe we can help one another.

So like us on Facebook to stay up to date on the latest discussions and developments.

Meet your humble host.

My name’s Carl and I have Tinnitus.

For what it’s worth, I am not a doctor, a therapist, a scholar, or a researcher. I’m just a guy who made some very foolish choices in my youth and ended up with a chronic subjective Tinnitus, a high-pitched ringing in my ears.

You see, I have been in construction for the better part of my adult life and I never really bothered with ear or eye protection. Thank Heaven nothing ever happened to my eyes! But the screaming and pounding of power tools, so close to my ears, and for so many years, did irreparable damage to my hearing.

I am a father of four boys (which brings a constant ringing of its own) and I live in Asheville, NC.

I am no longer in construction, having taken up web design as a less harmful way to make a living. And it occurred to me that I could “use my powers for good” by creating a community of diverse people, all united because of their Tinnitus.

I’m glad you’ve found this site and I hope it provides real value for you on your path to wellness.

Remember, we’re all in this together.

Here’s to your health!

Carl
