        Thanks my lovely. <3 :) I could be better. Had a lovely evening with friends, but I’ve managed to gain an ear infection from swimming, so on top of everything, I’m now in pain -_-

      I just met the most disappointing doctor... I'm going into private Healthcare.

        If hearing related, private healthcare is not much better. They are probably nicer, but just as clueless.

        @Kriszti well I'm choosing to be hopeful because its all I have right now. Please let me be hopeful. I think I'm seeing a really good doctor who likes to get to the bottom of things. If he can figure me out it's a success. I don't need him to cure me for it to be a success. I just need someone to care. My GP didn't even look in my ears at my last visit. So yeah. The bar is pretty low.

      8 months in and my tinnitus has not faded into a hiss like many report. It is still a strong, clear tone that reacts to sound. 1.7khz.

        @Martinf i completely agree. I've literally accidentally looked at the sun before and my eyes are fine, not that I recommend it, but compared to our ears, eyes seem to be hearty!

      Yesterday I ran for the first time since straining my ankle last October and my head clicks! It's bizarre, many clicks with every step!

        It wasn't intense running or anything, just some Frisbee with my boyfriend in the park. Head didn't hurt weirdly, just clicked.

      Honestly, I don't think my T volume has gone down. When I first got it I only heard it at night. It was much fainter than now I think.

      I think my T may be slightly reactive as it seems to become very stable and modulates less if I am laying still in silence

      I wish it weren't a pure tone.

      Maybe I should just go into audiology, since this is all I seem to think about nowadays anyway.

      When my T mixes with background noise especially outside, it sounds like a whistling wind.

        Interesting...the closest way I can best describe mine is ringing and an airplane engine when boarding. I prefer the airplane engine to ringing.

      Ugh. I'm doing the thing where I obsess over it and plug my ears all the time. Yuck.
      1. Stacken77
        Stacken77
        @Jebbis Just make sure to not plug your ears literally 24/7, please. I've gone down that route and I think it has destroyed my life as I've become extremely sensitive to sound. Earplugs is fine as long as you get some hours of sound per day.

      I really really want to know why my tinnitus can vanish when I plug my ear real hard. Makes me feel like something is stuck in there:(

        Mine also decreases the more i plug my ears harder. It also changes tone. I was thinking it is middle ear ptoblem. Maybe something is wrong with the pressure but doctors said that my ears are fine

        @Martinf see, that is just bizarre to me.
        I think doctors are severely undertrained in many aspects.
        I agree that it could be issues with pressure. So strange.
        Whats the quality of your T? Frequency?
        Are you ever able to completely take the tinnitus out of your perception from doing this plug maneuver?

        My T is high pitch (6khz/8khz) sometimes it is higher. When I plug my ears the high pitch gets lower and i starts to hear a tone at 1340hz exactly in my left ear. I dont hear this tone when my ears are unplugged but i have reactivity to any sound arround 1khz in that ear. Sometimes if i push my thumbs really hard in my ears the T goes to 0.

        The first 9-10 months I cried like a little kid at least once every week. I haven't cried like that in a really long time now. Years. Instead I have this constant feeling of always being a little on edge.
