        My tinnitus has been adding low level tones occasionally and I wonder if it has to do with incidents like this. I mainly try not to pay attention to new tones especially additional to main t because they usually pass and paying more attention doesn’t help me

        @Charburchar I'm so stubborn! I don't want to wear it in passing moments because I knew I was just going inside a building in a few seconds. But I keep thinking "Oh well I'll be in a quiet place soon I'll walk fast" And nope even then. I've even waited til loud things pass outside before i walk out LOL.

        @Steph1710 yeah sort of a spark sound occasionally. I have the same base sound but I get little extra stuff occasionally, but then I think it goes away. It’s not constant, the accessories that is (the remixes lol), sometimes it feels louder and quieter too

        For 20 years I had stable, non-irratic T. Last June developed a new tone for the first time that sounded like a jet turbine, as well as reactivity. That slowly dissipated to a non-issue by late October early November. The new tone is there but can only be heard when falling asleep.

        Unfortunately, developed yet another new tone however this one is incredibly intrusive :(

        Cardiovascular exercise is one of those things where there's really nothing it can't improve; except for viral illnesses (which you should really be resting during) and, I guess, heart attacks... (both during and after).

        But yeah, in 2015 I went through a period of never-ending ear infections, and subsequently dropped all my regular cardio-exercise. That was when I noticed I could hardly breathe through my nose anymore.

        So blood-flow clearly plays a massive role here.

        @Shelbylynn Don't worry about "overprotection". We don't have to be exposed to sounds over 80+ dB to have our tolerance under control. If we just spend most of the day without hearing protection indoors, I think we're fine.

      Besides t being awful(understated),I hate the way it provokes my ocd/anxiety tendencies and the way we are encouraged to isolate ourselves

    Cause of Tinnitus:
    Concert/lifelong music abuse
    :cyclops:Why hello there, and welcome....
    To the house of cicadas that never shut up and to the Television set to static which resides in my head and never turns off.
    I'm writing this "about me" in a moment of sustained anxiety and over whether I'll spike so that should already tell you a lot about the struggles of tinnitus and me. Sometimes it's hard to tell who is more important in this equation the t or me?
    I hope it is me.
    26 years old and as of June 8 at 1am (the time I am writing this to you dear reader) my tinnitus is moderate. Subject to change. Indefinitely.
    I hope that in some ways we can foster a sense of community here and in the least have a support group for a symptom that many don't understand just how debilitating and isolating and it can be.
    I wasn't always this scared or this doom and gloom, in fact here is a real life pic of me before getting tinnitus ->:rockingbanana:. Yep. That idiotic going to concerts, clubs, you name it. If it was loud- I was there. Never wearing or knowing how important war protection is. Young and reckless and thinking tinnitus was for older people.
    If you ever need me shoot me a message I will try to respond in a timely manner. I may forget that I opened it though and will respond months later when it's no longer any use to you. But I will try! :p
