      Massive cracking sound opening jaw first thing in morning. Is that TMD?

      Now on my roster of noise exposure & general antiox supps: sublingual glutathione. Increases glutathione more effectively than NAC.

        @PDodge Not too bad, but the tone changed to a lower frequency during the night and became more intrusive. I'm positive it's linked to my neck. Previous few days I did nothing to strain it and I enjoyed some low stable T. Also the shower reset is holding ok so far.

        Ya same here, The other day I ran when my T was high, Enjoyed low T for the next 2 days. Last night I work I felt my neck getting stiff and boom here I am on an 'up' Day. Not much I can do, shower didn't help and Ive got to move houses so at least I have some distraction

        @Bill Bauer It was very low for a while, but recently gone into a yo-yo phase of good day then bad. Not sure why. Maybe sleep, neck or other. My loudness H is so much better unless it’s a reactive day. When T spikes it’s intrusive, maybe more than 12 months ago. But a low day is better than 12 months ago.

      Hearing loss is only part of the reason, not the entire reason. When will people stop using it as a blanket statement?

        @Geekysugar Um nothing specific. Maybe just time, not reacting to it negatively, reducing stress, trying to avoid loud sounds and not overdoing it with noise exposure, not over protecting, listening to quiet music through speakers has prob been most helpful (never using headphones), massaging around face/jaw/head/neck.

        Precisely. My parents both have some hearing loss - no T. I think Michael Leigh's posts are good (but waffly) for a new sufferer.

        I think a lot of new sufferers should be implored go to the success stories section to see how people habituate or have had some sort of recovery.

      Sleep impacted neurological disorder. From almost normal for many days to intrusive T & lowered sound tolerance. T frequency always changes.

        @Gman I have TTTS (official diagnosis), but it has gotten so much better that I don't notice it any more. But this vibration I think is a separate thing.
        I had several mornings where I woke up to absolute silence in my left ear and then after I moved my neck just a tiny bit vibration started immediately and ringing followed. No way this can be from hearing loss.

        @Gman do you have inflammation or neck/TMJ problems?
        I recently talked to a guy who had this vibrating tinnitus for a year. Then he did some valsalvas and got better and recently he completely eliminated it with neck massage. He's tinnitus free for 5 days now.
        I wonder if muscle relaxants can make a difference.

        @Arseny I agree. I don't think it's sensorineural hearing loss related. As far as I can tell it's a mechanical thing going on. I have a few things going on including neck, nerves, muscles, ET, sinus, etc. It could be any number of factors including hypersensitivity/reaction of the middle ear muscles and trigeminal nerve to noise. I just massage around my face, ears, neck and temples and it helps reduce it.
