    I was wondering what’s worked for people with alleviating the symptoms of visual snow and tinnitus.  I know that neither can completely go away or be cured at this point.

    Before I even knew there were names to what I’ve been experiencing for what feels like years now, I have used some methods to help.  I’ve used a fan for years to help with sleeping at night with tinnitus.  Now, I also use calming music without lyrics (I find playlists on Spotify) while I’m reading or working on a project, so I’m not so focused on the ringing when it’s quiet.  Otherwise, I haven’t noticed if diet or exercise improves either visual snow or tinnitus.  Again, I just recently found out that visual snow is a something that people have (I thought it was normal).  Considering if this is neurological, I wonder if there is a vitamin or type of diet that may help?

     

    I’m curious to hear other people’s experiences of what they tried.. whether if they found a method that worked or didn’t work for them.

    I’m not sure if this will be of any help, but I have tried eliminating dairy products. That seemed to help slightly with the visual symptoms.  I have also tried to reduce sodium intake because my eye symptoms always seem to be worse if I’ve eaten very salty foods.

    For the anxiety end of things I have tried going to acupuncture monthly.  This seems to help as well.

    I hope you can find something to alleviate your sypmtoms!

    From,

    Hello Sam! Thank you for posting on the forum. The only thing i’ve ever tried is supplementing with magnesium, co-enzyme Q10 and riboflavin as it has been shown to have a prophylactic effect on migraines. I can’t say that it worked. I’ve never really tried anything else because I’ve always been wary of making it worse – at the moment I can live with VS! It definitely depends on the person though – I’d say my VS is quite passive and constant, whereas other people’s is more dynamic and perhaps responsive to change.
