        @Steph1710 I often get random song lyrics flying round my brain. I was going to add "stuck in the middle with you" in case nobody got it. Then thought about "Stuck in the middle with VROOM" to represent my low-frequency pulsatile tinnitus but thought that might be too confusing for those who don't experience that. Did I mention I'm an over-thinker? :-)

      Back on the B vitamins and my T and H both seem a bit better. Staying off Gingko as it seems to give me extra-weird dreams.

      Struggling today... Piercing tinnitus, breathing difficulties, dental work falling apart. Just a general wreck.

        Well things calmed down a bit in general. Found a dentist that would treat me as an emergency. Still battling the breathing problems but getting more exercise helps a lot.

        I do still have problems with plastic bags rustling, ripping cardboard and sellotape, pots and pans in the kitchen, supermarket trollies and bleeping checkouts. I always carry earplugs with me for such events.

        Does these spike you or do some make a glassy sound? Last week a pressure washer motor gave me a high piercing spike. It took two hours to come down.

        @James1977 I can get a spike or more likely ear fullness lasting up to an hour from plastic bag rustling. Up to a couple of days from a door banging or cutlery falling to the floor. My susceptibility to such incidents is gradually reducing thankfully.

        I do always use at least musician's earplugs. Sometimes foam. Sometimes with ear defenders on top depending on what I'm playing. But yes we must always still be careful... Sucks doesn't it?

      Got a major bout of TTTS for the first time in a while, following several spikes. Maybe a warning sign?

        Two in my bad ear and one in my good ear. I then got all kinds of TTTS symptoms after this. I’m not really sure what brought on these strange spikes. I’d never had them before or since (so far anyway).

        Hey Bill, yes the default tone is a reactive hiss, sometimes more in one side than the other. But about once or twice a week it will solidify into a loud ringing that fills my head and needs some loud masking to keep me sane.

        Tired of being tired all the time. Crazy dreams every night. The return of my stress related breathing difficulties. It's not been helping much with anything lately so I may as well come off it and see what happens. Feeling pretty good physically after one week off it, sleeping ok, but starting to feel moody and broody again.

        I stuck with 10mg. Actually ended up cutting them into two, then 4 as I tapered off. The reduced hyperacusis has continued but I wonder if it's starting to crank back up a little again I might go back on it depending on what my doctor says.

        If you need a middle ground, try cutting them in half! It's what I do when I still need to hear people clearly but want some protection

        It helped for the first week or two I was on it, but seems to have reached a plateau. I'd stopped taking the amitriptylene for a while due to the brutal side-effects, so I may have slipped back a little. I don't notice any effect either way on my tinnitus levels. But those crazy dreams - wow!
