TV seems to effect my Tinnitus far more than everyday noise like having a conversation, anyone else have a similar experience? May 10, 2021 at 6:35 AM

        I've noticed that a day out with road noise, people talking loudly in public, random loud noises (sign blew over and crashed to the ground), all contribute to louder days the next day. The good thing is that I can control the volume on the tv. In the outside world I cannot control people laughing loudly, etc.

        True, I'm not sure if it's the level of sound, but rather the type of sound in regards to the TV making my tinnitus louder.

      I know that say you shouldn't monitor your Tinnitus, but I can't help myself. Anyone else have the same issue?

        You will slowly get to the point where you do not do that any longer. I did that for few (3-4) months after the onset, but at some point I started losing interest. Now I am mostly bothered, but at least I do not measure it every few minutes like I used to.

        I used to, but mine changes so frequently, there’s no point. I just try to ignore it and carry on. Focusing on it definitely makes it louder for me. Gotta try push that sh*t to the back of ya mind.

      Anyone reading this, do you wear earplugs when driving?

        Yes! I absolutely do! It is the one things I’ve done from the onset of my T & mild H. My car is 20 years old and very loud. I do have another car which is very quiet, and occasionally I don’t wear plugs whilst using it. However, plugs protect from loud sounds like motorbikes ripping past, or people beeping horns, playing loud music etc. I would always wear them.

        I have been wearing ear plugs apart from once while driving. Will continue to do so as you can't predict what others on the road will do. Unfortunately there are alot of loud idiots out on the road.

        I did for a while, after reading about the decibel level of airbags going off. But I don't any more. I guess I trust my own driving enough...

        Melatonin? Maybe. It works for me a bit. Atleast a few hrs

        Read a lot of good things about melatonin, unfortunately it's not available in the UK.

      Angry that I went into a hospital for an MRI and came out with Tinnitus

        MRI was for headaches on and off for 2 months. The headaches stopped a week before MRI (longest period without a headache since they started). Nearly didn't go to MRI as covid situation was really bad in January in the UK, allowed myself to be talked into going. Irony is the MRI was all clear and the headaches never came back.

        well that is reassuring. Regarding the T, that really sucks. Hopefully it will fade and maybe disappear in the coming weeks or months. Did they offer you ear protection for the MRI?

        I had ear muffs, which they provided. If I had know how loud it was going to be I would have brought some foam earplugs with me.
