Took a shower without earplugs every day last week. 10 months noise induced - sound has not lowered at all, just morphed. May 17, 2021 at 2:22 PM

      Starting a manukah honey, cinnamon, apple cider vinegar protocol because, why not, I’m living in a hotel and my life is bullshit.

      New hypothesis is that damaged/inflamed nerves are providing some input the brain isn’t used to, and brain is off balance.

      The first month or so was a constant high pitch piercing squeal and now it’s like a computer program of stock sci-fi noises.

      Noises keep cycling - sometimes high pitch, sometimes low, sometimes continuous, sometimes pulsing, sometimes both ears, sometimes just one.

      Tinnitus sounds like if you could rub metal on metal to create a harsher version of finger on top of a wine glass. Ears are stupid.

      I hear an air tire noise - pfffffff - in my right ear. Please god let this be a permanent shift. It feels like heaven.

        Went away after a bath but was nice while it lasted.

      I’m on a rollercoaster - last night so loud I could hear it outside, today so quiet it’s largely masked inside. Let me off.

        I think it’s gotta be nerve/inflammation related. Yesterday I was exposed to noise = nerves inflamed = loud. Today stay inside = less inflamed = quieter distant noises. I don’t think it’s hair cell loss as it doesn’t explain reactivity or clean audiogram. I think basically my inner ears are open wounds and require inaction to heal. Also assume H is a similar mechanism as reactive T.

      It sounds like a circular saw cutting through a metal beam...

      Now the sound is like a sea of metal rice grains being poured over one another - largely atonal - still loud in silence - still can't nap...

      Tinnitus seems to be changing. I seem to have lost the EEEEEEEE of the first two months, except for when I put on Peltor.

      The thing about having a good day - particularly a drug-induced good day - is I am terrified of tomorrow. Severe T is heartbreaking.

      Dysacusis/distortion is still very much present and everything has a grating squeak to it.

      Almost hear silence today - I get this more often recently - but it feels so fragile. I feel inanimate. Maybe I have PTSD.

      Does anyone else experience “fake” silence? When most tones temporarily disappear and you realize there is still one underlying...sucks

      My tinnitus sounds like a brassy wall of ultra-high pitched frequencies.

      Day 47. High pitched tinnitus that feels like my ears are being subjected to nails on a chalkboard. Still have distortion/reactivity.
