        @Vicky17 oh that’s interesting. An ENT who thinks and who actually has an opinion on ttts. I have an ergonomic pillow too. Hope it improves for you

        He didn't really have much choice. He dismissed my theory of TTTS at first but then when I showed him a printout of a page I found online and highlighted exactly the symptoms I had, he kind of had to agree. Talk about having to do their jobs!

        @Vicky17 nice one!! That’s awesome but also so sad they do nothing but take our money.

      I think for me adequate REM sleep = better brain filtering = lower T, H, TTTS.

      Woke up 2am & spike had gone. T freq had changed. Crappy sleep but not too bad today. Always diff frequencies. Sleep related T?

        Maybe upper cervical caused?

        @just1morething I have cervical issues so could be. I use an ergonomic pillow. I actually think it’s sleep quality related.

      Slept well, ultra low T, woke up during what I guess was REM, which triggered an all day intrusive spike. Zinging like a mf so high freq!

      Quality sleep brought a multi day spike and other stuff down, caused by crappy sleep. Weirdness never ends.

      Good sleep = low T, H, TTTS and reactivity. Bad sleep = intrusive T, worse H, annoying TTTS and more reactivity. Today’s a bad day.

        We can assume middle ear inflammation causes hearing loss.

        @Contrast why are you so obsessed with hearing loss? I posted it because it is true to my situation with ASD. I’m not denying hearing loss with regards to T, but it is not the point of the article at all. Everyone has some hearing loss anyway.

      Still getting over a 4 day spike. Not sure from poor sleep or neck, but don’t think noise was anything to do with it. Not fun.

      All night cramped tensor tympani, then all day, then it went away after driving home in peak hour traffic. Yet sound is a trigger. Nuts.
    10. Gman

      Innervation of the tensor tympani is from the tensor tympani nerve, a branch of the mandibular division of the trigeminal nerve.

      Spike gone, but TTTS cramping is back after a 2 week break. No reason.

        Not sure whether this works or not but apparently Golden Paste (turmeric) is very good at reducing inflammation and calming nerves. I started taking it about 3 weeks ago and have noticed a difference. May be that it's just I'm starting to relax more anyway but you never know. The recipe for making golden paste is on the internet or you can buy it in capsule form.

        @Vicky17 I had heard that it was good for that. I eat a lot of Indian food. Apparently black pepper is needed to help the body absorb turmeric, which is pretty fascinating. Maybe I might try a curcmin and turmeric supplement.

        Yep, black pepper. I don't know if you'd get enough turmeric in a curry to make a difference. I make the paste and turn it into tablets by freezing it in bean moulds. The moulds are 1/4 teaspoon each and I take 3 a day in tablet form (breakfast, lunch and dinner) and then another in morning coffee and another in the evening in a small cup of hot milk. Worth giving it a go.

      Broken sleep again but no chance to go back to sleep. Spike day.

      Broken sleep and woke up with a spike. Went back to sleep and now fine. Sleep quality mostly determines my T.

      I’m positive Nicotinamide Riboside has helped me. It’s taking my emotional state inc auditory system off high alert. Getting back2baseline.

        It does. Nicotinamide riboside. @TracyJS
        But it helped indirectly. More to my emotional/mental state which had helped calm things down

      As a result I get less H, less spike days & more stable T that is at a much lower level than in the previous 1.5yrs.

      I’m sure NR has helped me. My nervous system no longer feels in a state of high alert. I feel a calm energy & more focussed.

        @Bill Bauer didn’t you already take it? I saw you listed in a post once. I think it helps me indirectly.

        I have/had been taking NAC, Magnesium bis glycinate, Vinpocetine, ALCAR (N-Acetyl-L-Carnitine), Vitamin B complex, Ginkgo Gold, and Zinc. I am not sure whether NR is included in the Vitamin B complex pills I have been taking.

        @Bill Bauer B complex would only have the usual form of B3. I take them sometimes but something in them ramps my T up. The glowing yellow urine is a put off too.

      Had enough of this tensor tympani jam. Another day starting normal then progressively jamming up during day. At a loss about what to do.

      Ear muscles jammed up during day, then dejammed during sleep. This is my new reality. Will they behave today?
    22. Gman

      Did someone jam a sock in my ear or is it my tensor tympani being an absolute f***? Woke up fine, progressively worsening all day.

      Alternating between a completely normal day and a day of jammed up tensor tympani. Utterly nuts.

        So you have days where your TTTS goes away?
        Jul 14, 2018
      3. Gman
        Gman
        @Contrast yes. Other days it can be mild or sucky. I get sensitivity build up in my trigeminal nerves for some reason, which is somehow connected and results in the TT to completely cramp up. Even the T can be v low when this happens.
