      never should have gone cold turkey off coffee. that no coffee thing is bullshit. A small cup of coffee in the afternoon is calming for me.

        I think they advice that because of the effect coffee has on the brain,i have noticed the same thing as you though when absence of coffee actually spikes my T same way a medicine does.I think it's a common mistake people tend to make when they see a med and coffee be totally different,the brain however might interpret the absence as just as significant regardless of it's function.

        I was on a tapered 8 day course of Prednisone initially and had some moments of complete silence. Thought I was cured. However, after the treatment my T came back and stayed. Side effects were sleeplessness and some shaking in my hands. It's pretty nasty stuff long term.

    Tinnitus Since:
    Dec 2015
    Cause of Tinnitus:
    Maybe Audio, Stress, Cervical, TMJ, Jaw, Sleeping on Stomach
    After watching several youtube related videos, hanging out with my neurologist neighbor and learning tons from my current TMJ Doctor and team, my suspicion is that my low level based Tinnitus that I’ve had for years is amplified by irritation, excitation, and inflammation to both Trigeminal nerves (C5). The C5 nerve may be affected by chronically fatigued masseters, misaligned teeth (Malocclusion) possibly due to clenching during stress and/or habits formed during 13 months of soft Invisalign retainers, maybe misaligned cervical, and shortened SCM muscles not to boot 20 years of computer use and forward head posture. My current retainers do make a positive difference.

    My belief that the chronic nature of this is temporary and result of a complication of several things, and things have improved. I have always had a based lined Tinnitus, I was just unaware of it. I think we all do to a degree, is it ever completely silent?

    The evidence to this Trigeminal Irritation theory can be found found during a Tinnitus spike . For me, this is when the muscles around ear “pull” and ache plus my vision is affected both far and close up. Refer to picture below to see why. My deep jaw muscles seem tight and tender to applied pressure and the Tinnitus sound is amplified when exposed to a complication of sounds like large rooms of people.

    Based on readings and expert opinions, linked studies, I agree that the Trigeminal (C5) is networked to the sensory function of the auditory system in many ways partly as result of that one small spider nerve going to the small muscle of the ear. Specifically, it connects to the tensor muscle of the tympanic membranes of the ear. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2848459/

    My non-scientific explanation of this. One of the 2 tiny muscles in the ear is responsible for protecting the ear by responding to a nerve impulse driven by the auditory brain area that is constantly monitoring sound and when a loud sound occurs it tightens and prevents damage to the ear.
