        I can feel a weird like inflamed filling in my ears. How did yours get better? I’ve tried steroids, steroid nose sprays and it feels okay at first and the fullness comes right back.

        I think my ears have just had it, I don’t think there is any way they could get better. My Eustachian tubes I think won’t be back to normal :(

        They aren't totally better. I still get some fullness, but I can usually fake yawn it away now. ETs still do suction/clicks up way up inside my nose sometimes. They were much worse for a long time though is what I meant and slowly have improved.

        Yes, my head kinda vibrates/low hums sometimes at night. I can sleep through it ok. The higher frequency stuff disturbs my sleek more.

      So just found out my Vitamin B-12 is kinda low,Doctor suggested I take supplements,would that make my tinnitus worse since my B-12 is low?

        I also have low b12 and iron deficiency. I take a lot of supplements but it may be that I need to eat meat again. Tinnitus got better after starting iron supplements, but it might be coincidental.

        If T is because of iron deficiency, you get it in your left ear. Blood vessel related.

        That great your T lowered even if it wasn’t because of your B12. My B12 I was told was on the verge of being the lowest.

        Often it flips back and forth between a high pitch tone and a hiss, and eventually becomes a hiss most of the time. A hiss is easier to ignore.

        I know my first hearing test they done speech but no background noise and made me listen to little beeps as I pushed a button when I heard them, I don’t know what they are going to do today. I’ve heard you can have high frequency hearing loss but I don’t know if I have that or not, I know last time they told me my hearing was good.

        Good luck with your test. My tinnitus started after ear surgery, after a football burst my eardrum and caused damage to my inner ear during a football match. How did yours start?

        As soon as the movie came on I put in my earplugs, I could still hear the movie but it lowered the volume a lot and it wasn’t so loud, I watched the movie and enjoyed it, it didn’t hurt my ears. I don’t want to stop living, it took some courage to go back into a movie theater, but I did and I used caution with my ear plugs and it seemed to not cause a spike.

        Mine is also softer in the morning and as the day goes on it becomes louder, then some mornings it’s loud. It’s just hard to hibernate when it fluctuates so much.

        I don't know how long you've had t. Have you noticed the quiet time in the morning increasing for you? I'm hoping it does.

        The t is at a level for me that if I keep decent masking around, or it's a lovely rainy day, I can almost not notice it/forget about it.

        they say that 10% of the population has it to some degree. but i think that percentage is possibly bigger than we know. even just talking with people i meet in public and at work, i find more people have it than i realized.

      Mine is very very loud. I'm thinking it could be related to my jaw or sleep. Could be neck muscles too. A sleep study would be a good idea.

        Hello Manny and CrystalB. Nice to meet you. Sorry your T is such a burden.

        My T is horrible, currently I use exercise and nutrition to deal with T. It's hard to motivate myself but I always feel better after getting my blood flowing and this also helps me sleep.

        My current theory is that physical fitness promotes mental fitness which both together help us cope with T. (@fishbone's approach influenced me.)

        I would suggest going to see your ENT to potentially get some prednisone since your recent spike is so intense. It may be able to help.

        In the years since I aquired T I met and talked to countless people who have it also, some of them colleagues and friends , but most have it very mild , there is just one colleague who says she can hear it most of the time , she is or seems rather unphased by it , but she has it since childhood so I gues she is completely habituated to it .
