didnt sleep last night one bit. T was so loud. Is it bad that T is louder than my own voice? Dec 15, 2018 at 7:30 PM

      I acquired T 9 months ago and it has faded quite a bit. I'll be 51 in 2 weeks. So, DPDX, hang in there. The odds and youth are in in your favor BIG TIME! From the research I've done, if your T changes in volume, brain location, etc. and sounds like electric static most of the time, these are all positive signs for recovery. (3 of 3)

        Mine is also kind of electrical, but I have not seen any improvement in the 6½ months I have had it :(

        it is fading, it dosent bother me anymore as there is only one sound which is ringing and its mild.

      I acquired T from a loud power tool in a confined space. You've got youth on your side. With a little patience, you'll find your T less annoying in combination with hopeful fading. I've been to concerts, shot many weapons in the Army with little protection, and worked with loud power tools. (2 of 3)

      Hello DPDX... I stumbled across your post in another TT article then followed up on your progress to date. I hope you don't mind the intrusion. I want to encourage you that the odds are in your favor of this being temporary. There are so many stories about people of all ages recovering completely from T. (1 of 3)

        Why yes! If it helps, try carrying your house/ car keys in your hand and go for a long walk. When your T starts to give you grief, just give your keys a jingle. That's what I started doing last year through the rough patches. Hope this helps,- Richie

        Everything is still fresh in your case. Try to be as strong as possible! Fingers crossed for you (and for the whole T community actually).
