      Have to sit while I’m taking a shower due to POTS. Water was hitting the ground of the shower near me and it caused a massive spike.

        I used to sit in the shower with my, thankfully, removable shower head and ensure the water hit either me or the wall at a quieter angle. Now I have a bath, which is a game changer.

        Pessimism and Whatifs seems to be your biggest roadblocks at times I believe. Habituation almost demands a more positive outlook. I know that seems impossible but it's really kind of all we got at the moment. This is an ugly truth.

        @Anomalous Take a look at cyberspace's profile and scroll through a few pages. He spikes very easily. Many of his spikes are from sounds that are far less than 75 dB TV. He also mentioned that he gets spikes from iPhone audio at the lowest volume, but not from showers.

        I'm not trying to scare him, or be a doom and gloomer. But with how unstable his T currently is, I think he should be cautious.

        @Anomalous As for my artifical audio comment, I had a terrible worsening from listening to TV in the 65-75 dB range, and that worsening never fully healed. And there are other people on this site who have worsened from less. Artificial audio sensitivity is a real thing (especially to phone/laptop speakers). Check out some threads about this stuff.

        I have experienced this many times and I hate it. I will doze off for a second and then wake up to listen if there is any hissing sound that gradually gets louder by the second. At that point, I know I'm going to have a terrible night. I developed insomnia because I was afraid to fall asleep.

        To reassure you, I experienced spikes 4-5 times a week for eight years, but they always decrease. It's your nerve sending signal once it calms down, and so will your T. Lay off the salt. It will make a difference and work on your stress,sleep and anxiety, All will cause spikes.
