Ringing in the ears and chronic pain enter by the same gate
(Technical University of Munich (TUM)) Tinnitus and chronic pain have more in common than their ability to afflict millions with the very real experience of 'phantom' sensations. Homing in on their structural and functional bases in the brain, researchers have identified a central gatekeeping system implicated in both disorders. Collaborators at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and Georgetown University Medical Center have integrated the latest findings into a disease model of both tinnitus and chronic pain.

This Device Can Zap Your Brain Into A State Of Zen. Is That A Good Thing?
What if you could zap your brain into a state of calm or energy with only the push of a button? It may sound like the stuff of sci-fi, but it's now the promise of a new class of tech wearables created by teams of Silicon Valley entrepreneurs and neuroscientists. Several devices have come onto the market claiming to use brain stimulation to alter an individual's mental state. One of the latest is Thync Vibes ($299), a stick-on device that delivers low-grade electrical pulses ("vibes") into the scalp to cause a change in automatic nervous system activity.  How does it actually work?

Ten Celebrities Who Suffer(ed) From Tinnitus
"I wonder how you're feeling There's ringing in my ears And no one to relate to 'cept the sea..." -- Peter Frampton There are few afflictions as constant and annoying as tinnitus, which Wikipedia defines as: "The hearing of sound when no external sound is present. While often described as a ringing, it may also sound like a clicking, hiss or roaring. Most of the time, it comes on gradually. In some people, the sound causes depression, anxiety or interferes with concentration." It is a surprisingly common condition with chronic tinnitus affecting 5 to 10 percent of the U.S. adult population, with about 0...

Rejoining Society
A decade ago I woke up one morning with such a loud ringing in my right ear that I thought the fire alarm was going off. And over the next few hours I had a bout of vertigo while throwing up the entire time. It was plain awful. I went to see the ear doctor that afternoon. After I told him that I had had Mexican food and a margarita (with salt on the rim) for dinner, and a 2am snack of a full bag of Cheetos, he said that too much salt had caused the illness. He also later determined that I had tinnitus as well as endolymphatic hydrops. And I had a loss of hearing in the right ear. Through research on the internet and wit...

Breakthrough in tinnitus research could lead to testable model
A major breakthrough has been made that provides new insights into how tinnitus, and the often co-occurring hyperacusis, might develop and be sustained. Tinnitus is largely a mystery, a phantom sound heard in the absence of actual sound. Tinnitus patients "hear" ringing, buzzing or hissing in their ears much like an amputee might "feel" pain in a missing limb. It is a symptom, not a disease, and though exposure to loud noise may cause it, some cases have no apparent trigger. (Source: ScienceDaily Headlines)

A bodyguard for your ears: Scientists discover novel pain sensors in inner ear that warn of dangerously loud noise
Our hearing has a secret bodyguard, a newly discovered connection from the cochlea to the brain that warns of intense incoming noise that causes tissue damage and hearing loss. Scientists believe it's the ear's novel pain system designed to protect it from dangerous noise. Because the ear doesn't have the nerve cells that normally detect pain, it needs its own alert system. The findings could usher new treatments for painful hearing conditions like tinnitus and hyperacusis. (Source: ScienceDaily Headlines)
