I guess that goes to show it's not noise induced. I have been insanely careful of my ears since the T started in my right ear. Sep 20, 2020 at 9:03 AM

        No, T spreads to the formerly good ear for people with noise induced T all the time. I think it's a good thing that you have been careful. Hopefully you will begin noticing fading within a month or two.

        @Bill Bauer Oops I did not know that NIT could do that >:( but still, I do not think my T is noise-induced, and that's for other reasons than this.

        @Bill Bauer I have already seen fading and it's been not even 3 months with T. It used to get really really loud but now it is at a level I can deal with with some louder background/white noise unless it does get a bit louder (it does that sometimes). But that gives me hope that since it faded in such little time that it will continue to do so :D

      I was scared for the day the T in my left ear would come- and it's here. Was hoping it would stay only in my right.

      There is very much noticeable T in my left ear now too. Great :D Definitely not as loud as the right ear..but it is there.

        I think it quite common for T to spread from one ear to the other. Mine started only in my left then spread to the right. Just the way the T crumbles. Don't be too hard on yourself. X

        @Steph1710 Thank you..I'm trying to stay positive but it's just scared and discouraged me. I'm just glad the T in the left is fairly quiet and not noticeable with some louder background noise.

        For most of the people who have T only in one ear, it eventually spreads to the other ear.

        @Gabriel5050 Yes, I mentioned it in an earlier status post. But the cause is TMJ dysfunction from clenching and from my wisdom teeth.

      Meant to mention that the MRI turned up with nothing. My ears and brain are perfectly fine. No hearing loss to indicate noise-induced T

        You took a huge risk when you had an MRI done. Some people get a permanent T spike after an MRI... I am not sure how common that is, but the probability is probably not negligible.

        They assured me that it wouldn't make it worse. If it would make my T worse permanently, why would they even have me do it? I didn't want to just not know if anything was wrong in my head or ears that could be seen in an MRI. If there was a better alternative than the MRI, I'm sure they would've done that instead.

      Update: Saw the oral surgeon today. Found evidence of clenching and damage to my TMJ. Wisdom teeth and TMJ is probably the cause of my T.

        How would you describe your tinnitus? Is it very somatic? Can you modulate with neck movements, stretches, etc.?

        @Lilah Yes. I can make it higher in pitch and louder when I turn my head all the way to the right or move my neck/head quickly. It also does this when I move my lower jaw forward and when I yawn.

        @Lilah This is only in my right ear, btw. I don't have T, maybe the quietest ever, in my left. Which is interesting because the right side of the jaw is the only side with damage/wear to it from clenching (it's also the only side that pops and has pain). There is also tendonitis in that side, the oral surgeon said.

      Quiet buzzing today. College starts tomorrow and I am 100% sure that the stress from it will make my T worse. I'm scared for it.

        When it gets quiet it doesn't mean that your T journey is over. But it does mean that most likely Eventually (1-3 years from now) your T will be gone.

        In just today it went from a low humming to a high pitched ring and then to the buzzing. Right now it's very silent, almost can't hear it. I'm excited about it.

      Nothing new came up besides she thought it could be more TMJ related. She ordered an MRI as well. Are MRI's safe for T?
