It all started with a car accident in 2001 that left me with a severe concussion. My tinnitus issues did not start for another 10 years, but when the sound appeared, it was relentless. I visited my regular EMT, and he told me to try some over the counter product at Walgreens and put me on blood pressure medication for 90 days as a starting point. I had follow-up appointments for three months and after the medication wasn’t effective, and the ringing was getting louder, he told me “deal with it as many people have tinnitus and you are in the same boat.”
That was November 2014. Later that evening a post-card was in my mailbox from IlluminEar Audiology. I made the call the next morning as I had met Kristen at another office a few months prior.
It’s been 15 months since I started tinnitus treatment with sound generators and therapy, and I can honestly say the units are a God send. I want to kiss the person who created these little jewels!
I have experienced sound sleep, reduced stress and my anxiety level is almost non-existent. I have better concentration and the little things that used to bother me are no longer an issue. When my tinnitus began, I would decline invitations to areas with loud noise as I knew it would take several days for my body and mind to calm down. I can say that with the use of the sound generators, going to a concert is not an issue. I also use the pillow speakers if the level is loud at night, as it helps me to relax enough to go to sleep. Kristen recorded several sound sessions on my mp3 player and when connected to my pillow speakers, the world is magical!
I cannot say enough wonderful things about the help I have received from Dr. Kristen Keener. She has become a trusted friend and I praise God for her! That post-card in the mail made all the difference for me and I highly recommend her. Call and schedule your consultation today, you’ll be so happy you did!
