I know that Tinnitus can be very frustrating. The first bit of advice i want to give you is to go and have your hearing evaluated. It is always worth investigating the cause of Tinnitus, especially if it is just in your one ear. I would recommend that you have a full diagnostic hearing evaluation done by an Audiologist. If you don't know any Audiologists in your area please e-mail me at izabelle @widex.co.za and i will refer you to someone in your area. If it is necessary to see any other professionals, your Audiologist will refer you. About the Botox; I will have to check up on that for you, up to now I have not heard of it helping for Tinnitus. Treatment for Tinnitus also depends on the cause of it. It is good to use a multi-vitamin. Your general health and stress levels can affect your Tinnitus. I have heard of Vitamin A and Zinc deficiencies having an effect on some people's tinnitus.
I would really advise you to rather go and have it evaluated and find the cause of it before making any decisions. In some of my other e-mails on the same topic, there is some general advice on how to cope with it in your everyday life.
Hope to hear from you soon
