        Ah. I know you've had T for 2+ years. Interesting it (still) fluctuates. Did you get it from gradual smaller acoustic traumas, or from one big one?

        Hard to say. Played music, attended many many shows/parties never had any problems until one party. 10 days later my head exploded. It did not fluctuate at first but now it does a lot

        If it didn't fluctuate at first and now it does, maybe that is a good sign.

      Looks like I've got a choice, 5 hrs of sleep and low T, or lots of sleep and static head

        What do you think this? I have something similar that I no longer think is connected to my tinnitus. I thought it was TMJ/TMD but I've been treating that for close to year. Still have the dull pain.

        Ditto. Mainly on the bad days, such as today. Almost had 3 days of resets but today it came undone after a few hours which as you know sucks even more when it creeps back in. Don’t know when it’s going to max out.

        Did they say if any c joints were out? I was thinking maybe there’s stuff out of alignment which maybe causing nerve and muscle compression and thus some of the symptoms.

        I only got a partial reset today too. Maybe you didn’t get enough quality sleep or woke up during the wrong sleep stage. Just try to be unemotional as possible and think of the better days.

        Because like a headache, anything happening in your head affects your entire body systemically both physically and emotionally as with your heart. In contrast to something like a leg injury which generally has only a local affect. Remembering that I’m not alone in this helps❤️

        Normalcy is something we take for granted when we no longer feel normal. Normalcy is a prized and cherished feeling. Normalcy, or having a clean bill of health, allows us the energy to do so much. Losing that...it makes other problems seem so small.

        That must totally suck with sleep impacted T. Does it get worse in the early AM hours? Just think of the good days to get you through.

        It doesn't tend to get worse over the shift. If it's up it's up and that's all there is too it really. If it's low nothing will fuck it up usually. I actually like the night shifts because I am tired AF when i get home

        This week I’ve had that too. Pain around jaws near ears. Keep fake yawning to equalise air pressure. I think it’s the tensor tympani.
