I want a full week without being a wraith. Good sleep, energy, contentedness, happily anticipating tomorrow - we are barred these things. Jan 25, 2021 at 6:12 PM

      I have a tone in my left ear that sounds EXACTLY like the synth in the beginning of Extreme Ways by Moby.

      Are there any success stories of ppl with multiple tones? Haven't seen any saying each tone left or faded in succession, just eee to gone.

      Just started 60mg prednisone about 60 hrs after exposure to a fire alarm - spike only started at about 48 hours.

      Trying a "Xanax mini" today - 2 parts passion flower extract for GABA boosting and 1 part CBD. Works okayish?

      The "novelty" of my T is gone for my family. Now, they mostly leave me alone, or avoid me. i suppose they don't deserve to suffer with me.

      Anyone else have tinnitus comprised of many small "pings" of noise rather than a continuous tone?

      Reactivity seems to hint at some form of damage never explained. When your T spikes for a few hours from mundane noise, it's just not right.

      Tinnitus never stops CHANGING. 3 months in and different sound every damn day. EEEE, metal cutting, buzz, hiss, tonal beeps, JUST STOP.

      Today marks 3 months. It's not as bad as it was at first, but so tired of this noise. Horrified I may be saying the same years from now.

      Tinnitus is bad today. No constant tones, just hellish irregular fast rhythm. Multiple asynchronous pulses per second in each ear.

      The "like" function seems inappropriate for negative posts e.g. going through hellish spike right now. Basically schadenfreude button.

      Took a Xanax today - I was speaking to someone when suddenly I thought I lost all hearing in my right ear. Turns out no, it was just the T.

      Thank the lord for Xanax Saturdays.

      What is up with tons of ear/head pressure in a dead-silent room? Even when the T is not a clear tone - it's like this vague "wall" of noise.

      Tinnitus is very bad today - low, cool metal noise that for some reason is extremely unnerving. Days like today I struggle just to endure...

      Tinnitus is low-ish, but I still want to rip out these incessant cochleas and stomp on them. Lowi-ish != silence.

      Woke up to the quietest morning yet. Am sitting in a carpeted room, no windows open, no electronics running, and I feel okay. Hope it lasts.

      My T is now "head noise" for the first time. I think this is easier because it doesn't seem like it's in my actual ear. Is this good or bad?

      Pramipexole has softened the character of my tinnitus and made it easier to put into background. Problem is it only works so for so long.

      Musical ear syndrome confirmed. I listened to Mozart for 1 hr, and after stopping, I still hear vague violins, like someone in another room.

      Inflection point - I've gone from feeling like steady tones are going to kill me to feeling like I have schizophrenia and am going mad.

      Massive spike from driving to neurologist and noisy office visit. This is so loud I can hear it clearly outside. Please give me relief.

      My tinnitus is like pro level - all these scrubs think they have T but they just have ᵀ. If you're on T talk you're in the big leagues.

      Like all of the random rapid pinging demands attention, you can't tune it out sort of like you would a steady tone.

      Having more days with no steady tones e.g. EEE and more with a ton of pings every second - it's quieter but sort of harder to wade through.

      For all my bilateral peeps who know what the true struggle is, like to sow unnecessary division with our unilateral comrades.

      Does anyone else's T have a distinct texture? Mine is sort of like if you walk up to a noisy cricket and listen, at close range you feel it.
