Looks like Bryan Setzer has canceled the rest of his tour due to bad tinnitus. So many musicians with this ailment. Clapton, Neil young Nov 12, 2019 at 1:53 PM

      Let's hope in the next few days we all get atleast one night of deep deep sleep. So important.

      It's frustrating that in the future, there's a cure, and its mechanism makes perfect sense, and we're in the past right now suffering

      Low end was completely gone this weekend, then started back Sunday evening. No rhyme or reason.

      So I don't get that full/clogged feeling much anymore. My bad ear does itch/tickle sometimes when I eat.

        Kind of funny, I got the clogged feeling twice today after posting this. But it subsides easier compared to a couple months ago where it'd be clogged for days on end

      All I need is ONE success story of someone who has measured hearing loss after their Tinnitus went away.

      Such a weird cycle lately. I wake up with the usual high pitched tv static, and that remains constant. But the low hum comes at night.

      Low end T now constant tone. Was a warble that came and went in the beginning. Now constant tone. I'm 4 months in.

        Hmm. So I've worn ear plugs all day at work, the drive home and still at home....the low end hum has stopped? Not sure why and kind of afraid to take the plugs out

      If someone's tinnitus is somatic, is the prognosis better? Or the same ?

        I'm in the same, I just know that Susan Shore's device works for somatic tinnitus.

      Yes, there are stories of T going away, but being realistic, most of the stories are about the T staying roughly the same, and people getting better in spite of the huge adversity. You should be getting ready for the latter scenario, and if T goes away, it will be a beautiful surprise.

        Mine is changing all the time as well after 5 years. It changes every few hours. It is part of the T circus. People getting one sound only and stable loudness are quite lucky.... :)

        The low end change has been intermittent. 2-3 days a week, then clogged feeling.

        My high end change though has been steady and slow. Probably in 6-8 week intervals.

        It sounds like Rb86's hasn't just changed - it has changed for the better. The low end tone started bad and now is off and on. The high pitch hiss went from "crickets" to TV static (which has got to be easier to ignore than crickets).

      Does anyone have T go away with legitimate hearing loss? I have 35 db at 6k but can't find any success stories
      1. InfiniteLoop

        Chances of T going away decrease exponentially with time. Good initial odds, become very low after one year, especially if there is no significant improvement in between. I have that hearing loss at 8KHz, and worse above that, I do have very chronic and intrusive Tinnitus indeed.

        I've had T for 4 months. I'm just asking, are there stories of T going away, even though hearing loss remains?

      Well I just took a hearing test. Essentially same loss as onset 4 months ago. Definite notch in 4-6k hz. Around 35 db in left at 6k hz

      I pray that we all atleast get to a point of Tinnitus that is reasonable until a cure is found.

      So my low end warble spike has subsided...I find when it's active I don't have the clogged feeling and vice versa

        Your T will keep changing, and that's a good sign. It is a lot scarier if it is always at the same level. You just need to give it time (as in another year or two). The one thing I learned is that you should never assume that the sound you are currently hearing is the sound that you will be stuck with.

      I think it is so important for all of us to have small goals for the day/week. Just to focus on and acheive. Helps pass the time

      Struggling today. Ear has some fluid in it I imagine - a typical allergy type feeling, so there's a bit of a louder hum than usual.

      Was talking on the phone with my sister on speaker phone aimed away, and my low end T really started acting up. Had to get off the phone.

      New development...when I plug my left (bad) ear, where my T started, I don't hear it nearly as much as my right ear when plugged
