Experienced 20-25 minutes of no tinnitus this morning. Right now it's back to mild tinnitus. The silence doesn't last long, as expected. Sep 21, 2018 at 5:04 PM

      4 weeks since tinnitus onset. Fluctuates between mild and moderate tinnitus. The moderate tinnitus is when it spikes.

      From 12500 hz to 20000 hz I couldn't hear anything. Must be deaf to those frequencies. Or it could be normal. I don't know.

        Oh you do have hearing loss, we all do. My audiogram was good again yesterday, but I damaged inner, outer hair cells, and synapse ribbons so. I have hidden hearing losss, if you do speech in noise you will see itl

        prolonged noise exposure without hearing loss is impossible.

        Normal for 32 year old is about 15500 hertz. You have done a fair amount of damage. You don’t even have to get significant damage to get T. I can hear 18000 hertz, and mine is ultra high pitched.

      The ENT ear tests can and do make tinnitus permanently worse. I haven't had my ears tested thank goodness.

        Was yours worsened by an ear test?

        No. I haven't went to an ENT to have an ear test. Should have elaborated.

        By all means do an audiogram and speech in nose, word recognition but ECOG/VEMP/ACOUSTIC are extremely dangerous for us!!!! I have damaged

      Part of me wants silence but I know that will never happen. Ah well. The spikes are kind of annoying, though.

        And I'm not talking about the few minutes of silence since that doesn't count.

      I'm just glad that I didn't develop hyperacusis.

      Going to an ENT would likely make my tinnitus much worse (if they do a hearing test such as the VEMP). Not worth the risk.

        Trust me not worth it at all.

      If my tinnitus disappears completely, which is doubtful, I would be really surprised.

      The periods of extremely quiet tinnitus are getting longer and more frequent, which is good.

      My tinnitus was extremely quiet this morning. Not so anymore as it's back to it's usual level.

      3 weeks since my tinnitus set in. Already learned to deal with it since it's likely going to stay with me permanently.

      The lows (quiet tinnitus) don't last very long.

      My tinnitus is winding down thankfully
