      The last few weeks I've been experiencing a strange tinnitus, it's like an alarm (very high pitched) that usually has no rhythm and hardly ever goes by my hearthbeat (beep beep beepbeep beep), A month ago I experienced it but was just for a few hours, now I can hear it almost all the time when there's no much sound around (45db aproximately). I'm in university and find this really hard to ignore in comparison to my 4 year 8khz T.
      I would really appreciate some advice, had to go back to my benzo(Klonopin) to get some sleep at night.
      Best wishes to all of you

      Hey J,
      sorry to hear about the new sound.
      i think its all about re-habituate again. for how long have you had this new sound?

      Hi Mario, for about a week and a half now, Sooner or later I'll habituate again and it will settle down just like the 8khz tone did last year. Thinking about this new tone all day has brought a spike to my other T as well, so it's a bit difficult to face a 5/10 T after having a year of 0.5/10. Worrying is just the cause of the spike, the mind can be very tricky sometimes.
      Thank you for answering

      Welcome J,
      Yes man, give it some time, time is the best healer.
      so you been having T for a year, and it changed?
      i think it can be temporary, there has been 2 week spikes or more.
      lets hope it returns to baseline soon :)

      I have T since 2014, in 2015 with TRT and counseling managed to lower it's perception to nearly 0, then last month had some hard time at uni with a lot of exams and the T started to bother me again, developed this new tone and started the newbie fears again haha, I will return to the TRT as soon as I can.
