The improvement I've seen the past two months is unbelievable. If this continues, I'll consider myself one of the luckiest men alive Sep 11, 2019

        Awesome. Did you do anything that might have caused the improval?

        If this isn't temporary, I will write a detailed post about what I've done. Then again, a lot of spikes get better within a year so it might just be time that has caused improvement, not all the herbs and other dietary changes I've made

        That's good to hear. It's weoird how some tinnitus fluctuates that much.......mine almost never fluctuates.

      Haven't had a low T day for almost 2 weeks. No idea why, maybe from a cold. Certainly doesn't seem to be related to music at least...

      Why do I get a delayed spike every time I listen to music even below 60 db? This is ridiculous. The one thing I love has been taken from me

        I can't listen music well either. I can watch movies but some reason music still causes problems for me. This really sucks.

        Sure does. I'm starting to realize that music might not be a part of my life for a while or forever. I hope the situation can improve with time. Idk, many people continue making music it seems. Maybe it took a while for them to be able to come back to it

      My T is almost always "only hear in a silent room". Much less fluctuations, but never complete silence anymore. Still feels better now

      Have entered a downward spiral. Isolation, fear of sound and music, deep depression and anxiety. Nobody knows anything about anything.

        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.

        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

        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.

        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

      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.
