    @Wrfortiscue Yes, happens for me too. I think the feeling of "going deaf" is due to the tinnitus silencing for a split second. It's all part of "fleeting tinnitus", nobody understands why it happens.

    Used to get it before I even developed constant tinnitus, but get it more frequently since I have. Yes it's a weird phenomenon, and I experience it, at least once, daily.

    On at least two occasions, I've had it last hours; being almost fully deaf in one ear, but with the tinnitus becoming barely perceptible at the same time.

    Sounds good, but I didn't like it. Was relieved when the ear returned to it's full hearing and cacophony of noises.

    @Damocles Interesting! So you actually "lost hearing" temporarily during one of those occasions? I've always thought the feeling of "going deaf" just was because of the tinnitus cutting out, but there's maybe some truth to the statement it seems. Kinda scary.

    @Stacken77 @Damocles @aura @Exit @Steph1710 ok I thought I was going crazy. This started happening after the MRI, before I only had the random louder and higher pitched fleeting T that would go away in 20 seconds or so. Just wanted to make sure this didn’t mean I was going deaf lol

    That's right @Stacken77, it genuinely felt like I had gone partially deaf. But then, obviously if we (T sufferers) go deaf, we expect the noise in our heads will remain as loud, if not louder due to the lack of external sound. In these cases, the tinnitus became extremely low also.

    It is interesting, but not something I would ever want to experience again.

    Just to add: when I get that feeling of going deaf, or going through a train tunnel, "fleeting tinnitus", or whatever you crazy kids like to call it, I rub my ear lobe; seems to make it return to normal a lot faster.

    Yeah, it's very similar to fleeting tinnitus.

    Get it too, on average maybe once a day. Happened before tinnitus but not as frequent.
