        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.

        Well I did take the hearing test and it came back good again. Odd how they can’t check for high frequency hearing loss

      Feel sorry for you CrystalB, and everyone who has 'T', the intensity and loudness of the noise you describe sounds exactly like the sound I have all day.

        According to my hearing tests, yes, in one ear but I think it is because I cannot hear the varying test sounds over the tinnitus.
        How about you?

        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?

      When my ears feel full my tinnitus is not as loud as when my ears feel more open...

      Went to the movie theater last night, first time going in over a year since my tinnitus started, wore ear plugs.

        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.

        Usually better in the am, softer, becoming more harsh through the day. What do you experience?

        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.

        CrystalB my gosh I'm really sorry you have to go through this. My T is extremely intrusive and audible across many settings due to its high pitch; but it's not loud.

        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 .
