Is there a difference between a spike in volume, and tones "moving closer to the ear"? The tones in my left is really obnoxiously close now. May 6, 2021 at 5:41 PM

      @Kriszti I agree, I'd love to be able to listen to music. I got some bad reactive tinnitus, so I'm cautious. Do you listen through speakers?
      1. Kriszti
        Yes, exclusively. My problem is that I used music as a way to keep the world away, to concentrate, and this is forever gone.

      My life is in total crisis; balancing graduation, job, and very reactive T. I'm planning to fast and pray, and repent in dust and ashes.

      Bought a Logitech K280e Keyboard in hopes for quieter typing(since I have bad hyperacusis). Stupid space bar sets my ears off! Frustrating..

        I have half a dozen different computer mice distributed between my laptop bags and my study. I keep meaning to rank them in order of clickiness.

        Have you tried using an iMac keyboard? The keys are almost flat so the "clicking" sound is very soft. They can be paired to a PC via bluetooth.

      Yesterday, out of nowhere, my right eardrum started rustling and click obnoxiously when moving the earlobe(not TTTS). Gone today.. what?!

      Anyone else's T get noticeably worse at a specific hour? Mine gets bad at 8 PM, just like clockwork, never seem to fail.

        Mine is very bad until 12am, from then on I spend the day better.

        More prominent past 8PM, it's so predictable I can expect to be aware of it more around that time, which strangely enough lets me prepare for it in a way!

    Tinnitus Since:
    Cause of Tinnitus:
    Life of noise + Acoustic trauma
    About my tinnitus (08/04/2021)
    Acquired through an acoustic trauma, October 2020. Ran a 4-stroke engine without hearing protection for a few minutes, threw some stuff at the dumpster and blew some stuff with a compressor. Hearing felt sensitive that evening and the day after I woke up with a clear ringing tone in my right ear. I also got hyperacusis; dishes were highly uncomfortable to handle.

    The following 3 months, my tinnitus improved slightly, I habituated, and hyperacusis resolved.

    Because of a spike, I became highly anxious and started to severely over-protect, sound depriving myself for the majority of hours. My tinnitus is now worse, extremely reactive(i.e. it gets louder in response to almost any noise), and my hyperacusis is a lot worse. Along that road I walk, hopefully I'll see improvements in the months ahead.

    About me
    Almost finished with my Bachelors Degree in Software Engineering. Really likes reading, although it has become harder due to tinnitus. I have faith in Jesus Christ - it's he who carries me through this crisis.
