After a bad September my T has been very quiet from 2nd October - 21st November. Since Monday it's been terrible, why? I have no idea! Nov 25, 2022

        Any correlation with sleep, exercise, stress and/or diet?

        None, I think my T like a lot of people's behaves randomly. I'm not doing anything different and had no loud noise exposure.

      A month ago my T changed in both volume and tone. No idea why, was doing really well before then. Hadn't logged on here for over 2 months!

        Wake during the night to a high pitched racket, it will quieten down a bit if I get back to sleep then ramps up during the day.

      Now it's happening every night. Takes about 40 minutes for the noise to die down. No idea why this is happening and it's driving me insane!

        My right year is worse too. That used to happen to me but it would be fine by morning. Now I wake up half way though the night and they are both hissing. Every night. HF so can’t mask. I had a recent AT so I attribute it to that. This whole thing is awful.

        Mine is high frequency as well. I've had no acoustic trauma, I've not had COVID and I'm taking no medication. I've had no change in circumstances that could have caused this.

        Genuinely no idea why this has started happening now. If I can get back to sleep mine is fine in the morning as well, but often I can't get back to sleep and when that happens my T is horrendous that day.

        I feel for you. I feel like mine is just bad all the time now. I slept OK last night and it was pretty quiet. And screaming now. But I had taken extra Klonopin because I was celebrating a friend’s 40th birthday and I was trying to cut the noise down a little bit because I would be wearing my earplugs whole time. So It is probably wearing off.

      Since 2nd September every night I wake after 3-4 hours of sleep with the T in my right ear screaming. This used to happen once a month

        Yup! i have daily fluctuating tinnitus in my right ear. Whatever I wake up to is what I hear the whole day. Today I woke up to a buzzsaw/hissing sound. Yesterday was silent.

        Often yea. Upon awakening if the omens aren't promising I tend to plan the day accordingly - physical activities and whatnot, to divert attention.

        Yeah bro T is always louder when I wake up in the middle of the night. Best thing to do is ignore it bc it always calms back down. Just gotta tell yourself that. I woke the other night with insane noises I thought I was at a movie theater it was so loud. Told myself it’ll be gone in the morning and it was. Hope this helps

      Last 2 weeks my T has been really acting up. Unfortunately it's still ridiculously high pitched since the Pfizer shot in November.

      The bad news is due to the higher pitch I'm finding it much harder to fall asleep. Is this a good trade off? I'm not sure - to be decided!
