      Just recalling the time an esteemed neuro dr wiggled his fingers in my ear canals asking "can you hear me?" when I told him I had tinnitus.

      Coming back from the brink of insanity & despair has been a long road, but I've made so much progress. Going to make 2020 a good year.

      If TT wasn’t around, my conditions would be so much worse off. Had I found out about it earlier, I could have avoided so much pain.

      When your life is ruined by medical professionals, it's up to you to pick the pieces up because they won't even acknowledge any wrong-doing.

      Hearing tests up to 8khz are less than half the job. It's causing a false sense of security.

      Standard ENT response to tinnitus: Get an MRI. If you're not fkd already, we'll get you there.

      Humans might be the dumbest species of all. Such a total lack of understanding about dangerous sound levels.

      Does anyone experience painful spontaneous opening/clicking of eustachian tubes up their nose?

      I'm sick of ppl saying that tinnitus sufferers are no more susceptible to auditory damage from “everyday noise” than the general population

        I hate when people state it as a fact too, cause their is not enough study to come to that conclusion. If they say that we "shouldnt be" more susceptible or they "don't think" we are, then that's something else. At least that leaves room for doubt and is more opinion based, then factual based.

      People who have had acoustic trauma(s) are more prone to further ear damage, more easily.

        @Bill Bauer I know, I saw it. Except I know from my own experience he's absolutely wrong, as would you, I'm sure. Research suggests diets too high in salt, or certain deficiencies can lead to an increased susceptibility to auditory damage via sound. Yet somehow acoustic trauma doesn't? Doesn't stack up to me.

      Can sound trigger peripheral neuropathy in various parts of the body, due to rewiring of auditory related nerves? I'm going to say YES.

        I was wondering the opposite. Could peripheral neuropathy cause tinnitus. I have numb toes but I think it’s coming from my back. Also neck issues.

        @just1morething Yes, I believe so. Impinged nerves and such. My neck and back aren't great either. But I've noticed whenever I have a loud sound exposure, it tends to give me weird stabbing sensations in all sorts of places. Alternatively, maybe the sound exposure causes neck muscles to tense and cause the PN?

      1x 87db-ish puppy bark near left ear caused T to worsen in said ear + brain & become reactive. No regression of H.

        by H I mean loudness or sound sensitivity

      Hey @Gman it's been over 2 years since you wrote"The clicking happens with each footfall" when you exercised.I recently started to notice a clicking sound when jogging/jumping upon landing.Do you still have this or found out what the cause was?

        I find if I press certain areas where my jaw meets around my ear, as I run it can kind of stop the clicking. Some people suggest it could be the eustachian tubes clicking...I don't believe it. Becareful

        Thanks Gman.I also suspect ossicles,but too many people even those in runners forums experience this issues,so I don't wanna let my nerves get carried away.I also read other suggest ET issue's.One person said they had this issues resolved because they had a tense neck,which they had massaged.One last question though,the click sounds like it's coming from inside your ear right?I'll update you if I found out the cause

        @Auron Thanks, it would be good to know what exactly is going on. If it hasn't caused you any issues then don't worry too much about it. I wish it didn't cause problems for me, as running is so good. I do have neck issues too by the way, so there might be some truth in it.

      Yes, 4-6mg per day of high quality fish oil is definitely helping.

        I started omega 3 supplement a week ago. A high quality brand. Mostly I hope it will help my depression/ anxiety

        @Jackjohnson183 both really. I’m still trying to evaluate it, so not sure how to explain but overall less spikes and issues so far.

      Mometasone furoate monohydrate (ie Nasonex) nasal spray spikes my T within hours. Great. Now I have no idea about what to take for hayfever.

      Woke to sound of a balloon popping but it was just exploding head syndrome, I guess. So vivid and loud.

      6g of high quality fish oil per day might be the one thing that is noticeably helping.

        I am starting an omega 3 supplement very soon (ordered some online). I don't take it for tinnitus but hope it can help my overall well being.

        @TheDanishGirl well I might have some positive news since starting it again but at a much much higher dose. Too early to say. Could be a coincidence and just be a good patch.

      Hyperacusis (loudness or pain) is NOT the same as reactive tinnitus, other than being comorbid conditions.
