      Hey, ich hab mich hier grad angemeldet und kenn mich kaum aus - wollte nur fragen wie’s dir aktuell mit deinem Tinnitus geht. :( bzw. gehst du auch feiern mit deinem Tinnitus?

        @valerinaanna Hey! Sorry, bin gerade im Urlaub :D Mir geht es inzwischen ganz in Ordnung, hab tatsächlich das Gefühl, dass mein OG-Geräusch auch besser geworden ist! Feiern war ich seitdem noch nicht (hauptsächlich wegen Corona), aber mit guten Ohrstöpseln würde ich mich davon glaub ich eher nicht anhalten lassen. Muss allerdings dazu sagen, dass mein Tinnitus idiopathisch ist!

        Hab mir gerade mal deinen Post durchgelesen. Dieses statische Rauschen das du beschreibst hab ich auch (keine Ahnung woher das kam, war eines Tages im Februar einfach da). War mal für eine Weile besser bzw. fast weg aber kam dann unverändert wieder. Mal kann ich mich besser damit abfinden und mal schlechter...

        @nocticolor That's so great to hear! I think from what I've read on here SBUTT episodes are completely normal, and they shouldn't be any cause for concern.

        @nocticolor, I seem better using Afrin plus an EarPopper
        Why does Afrin work so well?
        He explains that oxymetazoline (the active Afrin ingredient) actually works by mimicking adrenaline in your nose. It forces your nostrils open by squeezing the blood out of your nasal tissues. When you spray a shot of Afrin nasal spray into your nose, you will feel immediate relief from that awful congestion.

        I try to think of it like weather vs. seasons. Based on the change from one day to the next, you would never know if you were heading towards winter or summer. That's why you have to zoom way out to see if there's a trend.

Now the static I’ve been experiencing since this February I find much more difficult to handle, especially if it gets high-pitched. Doing my best to stay positive though. What about you?
