      I think my tinnitus gains weirder sounds a bit faster than it gets louder.

      sound of 2 porcelain glasses hitting one another sent a weird shock wave into my ear and down my neck. Such a minor sound yet it affected me

      It seems like T is getting worse. I say seems to keep the hope...

      Ik T doesn't make you objectively dumber but it keeps distracting me and it's just not the same 100% I used to give.

        Same. Although I never been particularly smart, but had a good memory and was very diligent. That's gone. I don't know whether it's due to depression, the relentless sounds or the sleep deprivation. Probably all of the above.

        Can you guys mask with music when you need something done urgently? I can for a bit before is riles up my T. If I need to get something done music and caffeine are a good bet.

        @GBB I can always get everything done. It's not so much that it makes me unable to do the task in hand. It's more the fact that I constantly think about it while doing anything else. If it is really distracting me though, I just play a soft fan sound on my a phone. I found it works a treat. :)

        It did calm down eventually. I have one particular tone pattern that hypes up sometimes. It overrides all my other sounds. I have four other ones that are much more tolerable. Hope you're doing okay today.

        Yes, Ive been watching out for weeks :/ People are crazy about fireworks in my country, and fire them of for weeks. But the next couple days I am staying inside for sure. Happy safe new year to you.

        I'm "happy" because most forms of fireworks are banned this year. Still means that up to 120dB is allowed, but I hope that people will be a bit more careful, and that I don't have to relive last year's hell.

        @Bill Bauer I think it might have to do with more than sound but I don't understand what. For example, I used 3M 1100 earplugs while using my laptop, which has fans, but the noise wouldn't bother any normal person. I didn't have any loud accidents. I don't understand at all.

      Anyone having the problem of foam earplugs instantly coming back to their original shape after rolling them down? I have to be crazy quick.

        It usually happens when they are worn. Try to change them, or else change the brand.

        Try spending more time rolling and squeezing them, say 30-60 seconds...

        @convolution idk how they could be worn. They're single use and in the original packaging. Stored in good conditions. 90% of the time I use 3M 1100.

      @Ava Lugo Plenty of young people having severe tinnitus as well. One of them would be me.

        More and more young people are reporting severe and intrusive tinnitus which suggests that all of these earbud headphones, always accessible music and other media via mobile devices, etc. is having a seriously negative impact on hearing health. So I agree, severe tinnitus isn't isolated to older populations.

        @Gabriel5050, probably so, but many leave forums for other reasons. That would be a good thread on why people leave. Possibly negative posts.

        This might sound silly, but I'd be willing to bet many slip away silently due to superstition. When you announce or formalize something, it feels like tempting fate.

        @Bill Bauer I appreciate you taking the time to answer. It's always the same loudness. At best it's a bit quieter in the morning. I just don't understand what I am doing wrong to get spikes. My environment is as quiet as it can be.

        3M knew they were defective. Company to pay $9 million after allegedly selling defective combat earplugs to US military. The Minnesota-based 3M Company allegedly sold their dual-ended Combat Arms Earplugs, Version 2, to the military without disclosing defects that decreased the actual effectiveness of the hearing protection the device offered.
