  2. Digital Doc replied to the thread Tinnitus Sounds Off After Trip to City — And I Was Wearing Double Protection.

  3. Digital Doc replied to the thread Tinnitus Sounds Off After Trip to City — And I Was Wearing Double Protection.

    It sounds like overprotection for the level of sound exposure, which will make you too sensitive. Next time, try the plugs, OR the muffs, but both...

    Same pattern here- almost gone in the morning, and then builds during the day. Wish I could just stay in bed, and maybe it would stay away!

  6. Digital Doc rated Cape crusader's post Agree in the thread Hi All :) Yes, I'm New to Tinnitus.

    Mine is quiet when I wake up but slowly starts to creep up and there it is for the day. I think sleep has a lot to do with calming it down.

  7. Digital Doc replied to the thread Falling Asleep to Milder Tinnitus — Waking Up to Very Loud Tinnitus — Thoughts & Experiences?.

  8. Digital Doc rated Bill Bauer's post Agree in the thread Airport Mishap Increased Tinnitus. What Now?.

    A link does not mean causation. Stress certainly makes T worse, and just about every other disease as well. I find that in my case also. However,...

  11. Digital Doc replied to the thread Tinnitus Resetting After Naps, Coming and Going. Should I Try Omega 3?.

    My tinnitus gets better when I sleep. The effect is more pronounced for me if I sleep with earplugs in. Also, I take a daily omega3 capsule. My T...

  13. Digital Doc liked Gman's post in the thread Airport Mishap Increased Tinnitus. What Now?.

    Except it’s not incorrect. It takes not much time at all for healthy ears to start being damaged at 120db and over. Seconds maybe, if you’re...

    Wow, they would not let an airport ramp worker out there without hearing protection. How can they allow the passengers?

    Sorry to hear that the T got worse. Need to give this some time, as many spikes are temporary lasting hours to even months before improving. Try...
