Sudden fleeting deafness/tinnitus in left ear today. Things are changing, just not sure if for better or worse. T low & stable, H better. Jan 17, 2019 at 7:13 AM

      Twice in 2 days getting sudden deafness & fleeting T in right ear. No vertigo. T has been low and stable. Very weird.

        I experience this sometimes. But it's a "mechanical" thing, at least in my case, it is caused by the position of my head and my jaw. I generally don't give it much thought.

        @Julien87 that’s interesting. Could be the tensor tympani and stapedius being weird maybe. Hadn’t thought of that. As long as it’s not sensorineural. I often get little dizzy feelings. Menieres would be my concern.

      Some louder sounds on the edge of comfort make my jaw hurt and really tense up and I don’t mean clenching or anything like that.

      I’m thinking it might be melatonin that’s been helping me. I took a week off and it wasn’t great.

        TRT'ers take advantage of the notion that tinnitus is a "total mystery" that makes pallative medicine that much easier to parade when people feel totally hopeless about medical research being hopeless to treat their condition.

        @Contrast I don’t doubt hearing loss is part of it. I wish they’d figure out why some people get hammered by T yet others don’t. Or just let me have mute button and let it work.

        @Contrast but I don’t see the point going on and on about hearing loss. It’s a fact that since birth everyone is losing hair cells and nerves. Yes it’s part of T but then what? Everyone has a measure of hearing loss but not all have T. We aren’t birds and they are still working out how to reverse it.

      Hearing loss is a natural part of ageing. Pretty much no one has all their hearing cells & nerves intact. Hopefully soon that will change

      Another day, another successful shower reset. Even after going out to Xmas dinner lastnight, that tested my limits of sound tolerance.

      Woke up at 4am (death zone) ...screaming ears. Managed broken sleep to 7. Did a shower reset. Seems to be holding. Lots of fullness.

        @PDodge it hasn’t held completely. Was exposed to a car alarm relatively close by. Blocked my ears but got a few secs of it. Wasn’t that loud but T bit louder now.

        At least I am sure you taught them to protect their ears. This alone is worth/equivalent to a very large number lessons and experiences that a "perfect dad" might provide to his kids.

        Sorry to hear that. Probably related to a spike that isn’t your fault. I have a bad left ear spike that won’t calm down. I get very irritable when nothing works for relief.

        look through MPP or the thread called hair cell regeneration what more can we know. Unfortunately it did other things which stop the HC from regrowing. During this, I found that it can quiet tinnitus I was experienced silence. It also turned my skin yellow and got all over everything i touched

        @JohnAdams curcumin is the active substance in turmeric. Wow didn’t know that about fx322. It’s working for you, sounds good. Will try.
        Turmeric made my hands yellow. Washing them with sugar helps.

        @Bill Bauer @Autumnly Telling them about treatments is good. But telling vulnerable ppl they’ve prob fkd their ears because research says xyz happens, no. Some ppl are obsessed with telling others about HL on this forum. It takes time to come to terms with that.

        I can confirm it’s caused by waking up during the wrong time / sleep stage. I feel it’s connected to REM. As a bad sleep does not always result in a spike.
