      Why is it impossible to get a hearing test over 8000 Hz?

      Could a new memory foam pillow really spike my tinnitus and give me a tone in my good ear? Why is there even a new tone? What's going on?

        I have a feeling too that my head position changes the sound...

        I don't grind my teeth that I know of. I might try a dental biteguard anyway. My T is somatic yes, it changes with extreme neck movements. But I remember reading that something like 70 percent of people with tinnitus have that regardless of the cause.

        oh man... if yours is heavily influenced, maybe you should try a splint or therapy for your neck mayhaps.

      Well, had 3 good weeks but it seems that might be temporary

        Hopefully you will start getting more of those good periods and they will keep getting longer.

      I think it's getting better. Only had intrusive tinnitus for about 10-20 percent of the time the last 2 weeks. Feeling hopeful right now

        I did change a lot of things when I got my bad spike in october or november, perhaps the result is felt now? The past month I have been working on releasing tension in my neck and shoulders, been using many yogic chanting techniques to de-stress. Sometime during this month I mostly stopped caring about the T when I have it. I stopped resisting, and something changed.. Or so I feel

        Wow! Sounds like you’re on the right path to easing your mind and letting go. Seems like the results are finally kicking in :) congratulations! I will also look into yogic chanting as I’m looking for techniques to de-stress also.

      Having more and more 1/10 days, and I'm slowly starting to enjoy being alive even on my bad days. I'm starting to consider myself lucky

        I've been seeing fading the last 4 weeks or so, but it's never truly silent. It's still better than it was at the start, however.

        I think comparison to others can be good, but equally it shouldn't invalidate your or others' suffering.I see some people do this on this board and I think it's a dangerous road to go down.

        Back to a 2/10 and feeling better. Had a bad streak of three 10/10 days in both ears (always in left only before) and was despairing. You were right Pdodge

      Is tinnitus related to neck pain and tension curable?

        Is the tinnitus appearing more often or is it that the severity is increasing?

        I’m sorry to hear about the other conditions compounding the problem. I hope you’re staying vigilant with your ears

        It's been appearing less often the last month, but when it does it's more severe. Always wearing earplugs when outside of my apartment and I've stopped using headphones. Not sure if low music through speakers is giving me spikes or not, maybe I'll stop that for a while as well. The problem is that creating music is the most important thing in my life

        Thanks for your concern, I hope you are doing OK at your end

        You should stop using the headphones. Hope you feel better soon.

      On days when it's so silent it's almost gone, I can't imagine it coming back. On days that it's loud, I can't imagine it ever going away.
