Tinnitus patients have questions that most often their doctors and audiologists can't answer. The disorder is not taught in medical schools and a single frontrunner of a treatment has not emerged. Tinnitus patients typically do not know where to go for help. Thousands resort to chatting on the Internet about their condition. Thousands of others have written to the American Tinnitus Association and to Dr. Jack Vernon for help, compassion, wisdom and answers. This book is a reflection of Dr. Vernon's 30-year dedication to this problem. His optimism for the condition and willingness to try out new ideas has pushed the mysterious disorder of tinnitus into a national and NIH-funded spotlight.Tinnitus: Questions and Answers is a short book focusing on the most frequently asked questions about tinnitus. The questions in this book are from patients. The answers are written for patients and for interested health care providers too. The book covers causes, treatments, and other topics with a format similar to the column written by the author in "Tinnitus Today" magazine. Other topics will include such things as drug treatments, dental issues relating to tinnitus, hearing loss and tinnitus, and other related ear disorders.
