Remind me not to take naps! Generally, aerobic exercise and almost daily use of AudioNotch or another listening therapy makes it quiet. Nov 8, 2016

        Hi Nancy! My tinnitus is also at its worst when I wake up from a short nap or when I wake in the morning! I

      An hour of heavy aqua aerobics + a few hours of AudioNotch (notched nature sounds) = almost guaranteed quiet tinnitus level the next day.

    Tinnitus Since:
    07/19/2015
    Cause of Tinnitus:
    Workplace noise
    I work with a developer and sysadmin to support the business systems of our company, a neuroscience-based educational software company in Oakland, CA.

    My tinnitus appeared after some punishing noise 5 days earlier in our offices. The origin of the noise turned out to be a failing component on a generator on the roof of a building across a major street from my office. The noise source was easily 40 yards away, but it was pointed right at my window, which was an original window from the old building (I think) poorly sealed. The frequency was high enough that it was not perceptible by many.

    Fortunately we moved about 4 months later. But the damage was done.

    I have found a routine that helps a lot: as often as possible, aerobic exercise and almost daily use of AudioNotch. If my T has flared up, getting 30+ minutes of a solid swim, run or hour of Zumba with some time listening to AudioNotch that day will pretty much guarantee that the noise will be lower or GONE the next day. This makes me happy! and is making me healthier in general anyway.
