For those suffering from Tinnitus

I had a long call today with someone who was recently injured from TMS and is suffering massively from tinnitus. They were very concerned that the damage had come from not wearing hearing protection from just one session. I told them my skepticism and that I thought the damage was being done internally to the brain and it was not from the noise of the treatment. This person told me that was very interesting because his neurologist had pointed out that the treatment site is very close to the auditory cortex of the brain, which you can see in the images. It is also very interesting that not a single person has reported to me or have i seen any evidence of damage to the cochlea or mechanism of the inner ear that may indicate physiological injury from sound waves. For those interested in understanding the cause of the tinnitus
