Yes, if your acouphene syndrome is recent; then, there is a new treatment.  Acouphen is the symptom of permanently hearing background noises or repeated beats that may drive patients crazy.  The majority of patients hear high frequency noises that become intolerable.  Getting old is one major factor or a sudden loud bang or recently the constant listening to the MP3 types of gadgets.  It is know that high dozes of asperin induce temporary symptoms of acouphene:  It is due to the active component salicylic.

The new treatment for recent patients is a first breakthrough in reducing or eliminating background noises for three weeks. A micro-pump is being readied to allow the patient at home to inject the solution when noises reappears.  The solution of gacyclidine is administered to the proximity of the “round window” in the inner ear; then the solution leaks in to the junction of the cochlea and then to the auditory nerve.  A catheter pierces the tympani membrane and then reaches to the “round window”.  A few surgeons actually pierced the “round window” with very thin needles.

Gacyclidine is generally used on patients suffering cerebral trauma; this substance has neuro-protection properties that blocks nerve dysfunctions.

For ancient acouphen patients, electro-magnetic treatments are being tested to stimulate the auditory brain through a process of “re-organization”.  The patient listens to recorded specific sounds for about 6 months.

Slow down on close ear direct listening of music; you don’t need to be listening to music all the time; remedy this music addiction behavior to ward off crazy noises.  For further description of the symptoms and the other treatments link to my previous post
