        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.

        My atlas is twisted and my necks a bit straight. He told me the atlas joint and TMJ have the most nerves running through them and can cause a but load of symptom. I never told him I had T until 5th session

        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.

        @Manny we both have found waking up with a T spike can be reset with a shower for the day. Sometimes it doesn’t work at all or only temporarily.

        Through my VPN to get Canadian internet content, for awhile on YouTube they had these 30 sec. commercials through the province of Ontario about the dangers of high noise levels. Never explicitly mentioned tinnitus though.
