        I use a professional clipper too, but last time I used my earplugs for the first time. Being very cautious.

        I've decided to just let my hair grow for now. Every time I go to the barber, it spikes immensely, and it has given me one of my permanent tones.

        I get probably two a day on average. It’s when they stay that really sucks, and that does happen. Each one sends me into a panic. I’ve had them in important meetings and had to run out for fear that it would stay.

        They don't matter. Initially they freaked me out, but they are harmless. I almost like them know if they happen during the periods of my load static T, as they completely turn it off! I wish they would stay actually....

        @marianamoon when I sleep on my back it seems to go away. I'm thinking its a sinus issue or ETD since my t isnt from loud noise

        @MindOverMatter I worry this is from stopping caffiene cold turkey due to my ear infection. Doc said to not drink caffiene during treatment and I used to drink a decent amount for the gym everyday. Maybe it messed up my CNS?

        @SumGuy TTTS is usually caused by some sort of acoustic trauma and/or stress/anxiety. Often in combination with h. Im pretty sure you stopping drinking coffee has nothing to do with it.

        @SumGuy its the nature of T. It can fluctuate for alot of reasons. Stress and sleep can be big factors. Sodium, caffeine, msg... Yours could be related to fluid in your ears so allergies could affect it. Trust me we all understand the feeling all to well. Hang in there.
