People, let's be real here: If you desire a cure and/or better treatments for Tinnitus, you have ZERO EXCUSES for not taking the survey. Jan 19, 2020

      T has been real loud since last night. At first I thought it was a hotdog I ate, now I'm not sure. Hope it's not permanent.

        Hot dogs can be salty. I know salt exacerbates my tinnitus. How are you feeling today?

      I think I'm getting sick again. Just what I need, right?

        A week ago I tried taking huge huge doses of vitamin C just whena cold started to make itself known. 4 lemons, many tablets of a vitamin C supplement, bell peppers and so on. The cold never broke out. Might not even work for me the next time but I'll try it every time from now on anyway

      Just tore up my suicide note. It was written months ago, days after my spike began. I no longer have any need for it. I can make it through.

        I am pleased to hear this aot. A piece of advice: Take things slowly don't use headphones even at low volume. I also advise, not to use any treatment that consists of playing audible tones through headphones.

        Take care and all the best

        I used to do that all the time. If you have a neck cracking habit and stop, your tinnitus may reduce.

      The T was bearable when I woke up. Guess it must've been the coffee.

      T was bad this morning. I hope that it was just because I kept waking up and/or the coffee I had earlier, and not the sign of another spike.

      Had some fullnes this morning in my right (and usually good) ear. Aside from that, I'm doing ok.

      Woke up in the middle of the night with a spike. Went back to sleep and then everything was fine. Weird how it works sometimes.

        That happens to me often. I just go "wow...this sucks" and then drift off eventually....usually by morning it's a little more manageable. Nearly 7 months in myself. Hating it so bad

        Supposedly waking up in the middle of the night / napping can spike tinnitus for a bit. Something to do with the brain stem searching for the tinnitus as a sign were still alive or sometging like that, lmao.

      2/2 cut pieces of hair off you and the thing the use to cover your clothes. Really loud and I was too much of a bitch to complain.

      Is a white noise machine safer than a fan on the lowest setting?
      1. pinklights98

        They are both equally safe. Don’t be afraid of such normal sounds

      Going out with friends for the first time since I started my spike almost two weeks ago. Taking my ear plugs, but I'm still nervous.

      Absolutley DYING for a coffee right now. But I'm scared that it'll aggrevate the T. Been chugging water like crazy.

      See if there is anything in your diet i.e Caffeine or stimilants or medication youre not aware of their impact. Even some vitamin suppliments can cause irritation.

      I've never been suicidal before, but I think I am now. I don't know how I can live my life after this spike, if it isn't temporary.
