        @Tommy5oh5 Not that you asked, but best advice I can give, is carry on as normal, but with some caution to louder environments. You got used to it once before, and you’ll get used to it again. :)

      Like the clouds, fires, & presidents, the volume spikes will come & go.

      Learning how to dance with my T rather than despising it.

    Tinnitus Since:
    1999
    Cause of Tinnitus:
    Over-exposure to loud live music
    Hey there. I became aware of my T in 1999 when I sobered up after two decades of drinking and drugging as a touring rock musician. I habitated to my T from '99 up to three months ago, when I had a minor spill on my daily mountain bike ride. Since then, my T, which mainly lived in my right ear, now lives in both ears at different high pitches. Also, I've noticed that when stressed, any movement of my head while cause the volume to increase. Also, I experience more volume "spikes" since the minor bike accident, and once ever two weeks or so, I experience a very low hum or buzz in my right ear. I do all I can to focus on hearing "past" my T, and I've been able to incorportate myT into my spiritual practices (meditation, Mindfulness, etc.). At night, when I go to bed, I will often use nature sound files avialable on Youtube to help me get to sleep. Not panicking is Huge. So is learning how to "dance with my T," rather than hating it, helps too.
