        Start contacting Elon and other people around Neuralink, this is the research and technology we need!

        If most of the tinnitus talk members would bombard him, you know the message would at least be somewhat received. I really think there is something to this technology.

      My jaw is clicking when eating. Is this a sign of jaw problems and possibly peaking my T?

        I know that feeling; my hearing therapist is currently building up my tolerance to sound for that exact reason. I was scared of the sound of the pipes in my house when the heating was on! We'll get better buddy in time!

        I feel the same. Work is loud and my tinnitus is always the loudest at the end of the work week. If I go to a busy restaurant my tinnitus will spike and take a day or two to settle down. It's no way to live.

      So every time I sleep my T almost dissapears completely. I like! Even after sleeping for an hour or so. It stays away for up to an 1/2 H.

      Sleep can really do some crazy things here. I have a feeling of it almost disappearing when I wake up on certain moments.

        I'm not sure if the disappearing is a new thing or not, I've only noticed it recently. If the reason I wake up is because of a bad dream, then the T is usually there right away, though.

        It's best to introduce supplements one at a time, that way you can know what kind of effect they are having on you.

        I know what you meant Spiral I'm not that slow. That's one of the main problems on support forums though. You only see the negatives most of the time, and all the positives are talked down. It just adds to the overal feel of hopelessness. Negativity attracts negativity. Positives can come from the most heinous of situations; you've just got to look hard and dig deep to find them.

      What would happen if we sat into an isolated room for a week, hearing nothing bad T. Will the brain filter it?

        @SilverSpiral One of the theories about T is that everyone has some random noise but most of the brains are filtering it out. Ours don't

        "Back to silence" method has nothing to do with sitting in a soundproof room. Nothing would happen, you would just avoid to make your condition worse because of loud noise... I'm staying long enough in silence to confirm that. By the way you would still hear things : eating, moving, brushing your teeth. A week with NO noise is not possible.

        @Foncky I didn't mean that back to silence involved soundproof rooms, I meant that it involves not avoiding/ignoring hearing your T to change your response to it. That's the closest thing I could think would relate to this, as it is a form of habituation, and I know that what Jurgen was talking about would do nothing by itself.

        One day a rockconcert is 100 dB, the next it's 130.
        Guns are 120, 130, 140, 150.
        Maybe we could all agree that measurements should be measured at one metre distance for starters.
