      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.

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

      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
        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.

      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.

        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.

      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.

      A week or 2 ago I'd liken my tinnitus to crickets, and the past few days I'd liken it to TV static. Same volume so not sure if thats better
      1. Bill Bauer
        Bill Bauer
        A switch from crickets to static or a hiss, is an important and a good development. You are on the right track. The next step is for the static/hiss to get less and less high pitched. Static is easier to ignore than the crickets...

      Is fleeting T indicative of anything or not really?
      1. Lynny
        Lynny
        I’ve heard people say it’s a good sign and that their ‘baseline t’ is usually better afterwards. It’s basically ‘calibrating’ the brain/auditory system

      3 months today. Rarely a tone. Mostly a hiss or sand poured on glass. Hyper-acusis mostly gone. Not much fading in the last month.

      Well, for whatever it's worth, I've gained back the 10 lbs I lost when my T began. I'm more emotionally stable but still struggle. 3 months

        My experience was the same, lost about 20 lbs in a small amount of time due to depression. I wouldn't eat, but gained it all back when I felt better. Good for you. Keep it up and hope you feel better.

      Seems that if I get out and exert myself - sweat through work or hiking, eat and sleep - my T is manageable. If I lay around - intrusive

        Good observation, same goes for me. Do you still hear it but just ignore it when you’re doing other activities or do you not hear it at all?

        I'm sure if I stop and look for it it's there, but usually if I get busy and focused enough I'm not looking for it. For example - wash your car. And really make sure you get it super clean. You might notice your T when you come inside, but if you're focused enough, you might not notice it while cleaning.

        For many of us (including myself), T was caused by an exposure lasting a Fraction of a second. Also, many people feel fine during the event that gave them T and only find out that the noise exposure was not ok after they come home and hear louder T. This includes people who wear earplugs and muffs. Earplugs are notorious for providing a false sense of security.

        Bill i appreciate you looking out. That being said, a quiet movie isn't in the decibal danger zone. I agree we need to be careful, but I'm not going to live in fear and never leave the house.
