      I seen where someone had said,they learned to deal with tinnitus better by just not caring any more about it.I’m going to give that a try.

        @CrystalB what it means is that you may very well have hearing loss in the higher frequencies. Humans can hear upto 16,000-20,000 but the standard test goes up to 8 I think. In my case, I also have good hearing apparently. But my T sounds like a high pitched hiss. Kind of like an old tv when it’s turned on.

        You can actually go on websites and put the tone slider up until you match it with your T, this will give an idea on what frequency your t is

        @LukeYoung thats usually how mine sounds a extremely high pitched hissing sound. I’ll have to try that. Because I can hear my T when it’s loud some days over my t.v

        Could something have caused this spike?

        In any case, you need to start using sound masking. The sounds of crickets work well for high pitch T.

        I do at work, it’s a dish washer and buzzer when the food comes out of the fryer, I work in a deli, but that all the noises that I’m around that moderate. I tried to explain to my ENT about the situation with my ears and he said he didn’t have a clue or understood why they were like that. He said you would think the better your ears felt the better the tinnitus become.

        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.

        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.
