    This work week has been good. Many hours of meetings; no prolonged spike. Has also been using -15 dB filter in the daytime; working well.

    Hi @Mnq16 -- Sometimes spikes can be caused by something toxic in our system (such as sugar or caffeine). NAC is a great detoxifier, so it's...

    I feel like NAC definitely took the sting out of a terrible spike I was having but I can't be sure it wasn't just time doing its thing.

    I only live for my family. I'm tired of drinking benzo every day. I can't stand.

    Yeah benzos are tricky but as long as you're responsible and it can give you your sleep back, initially it might be a good idea.

  17. Mnq16 rated Clerkp's post Helpful in the thread Occlusion Effect WITHOUT Earplugs? Anyone Else Experienced This Before?.

    Hope so. ETD seems easily addressed. Myoclonus seems more complicated but I’m pretty sure that’s not what this is. I’ve been really stressed and...

  23. Mnq16 rated Juan's post Helpful in the thread Occlusion Effect WITHOUT Earplugs? Anyone Else Experienced This Before?.

    Maybe fluid, pressure, wax, caused it. Damage made by noise can also cause that, hearing your own voice louder. There's people with autophony...

  25. Mnq16 rated Clerkp's post Agree in the thread Occlusion Effect WITHOUT Earplugs? Anyone Else Experienced This Before?.

    Either but probably ETD. I am dealing with some of that now. It’s terribly annoying. But I don’t really want surgery. Hoping it resolves on its own.

    Would the fact that my tinnitus gets louder when I clench my teeth mean I have somatic tinnitus or is this something everyone can do?
