So here is my story. I have tinnitus caused by an acoustic trauma for 5 months now. Now recently my tinnitus started to change after my fourth month in, it started to quiet down. During my initial months it was practically impossible for me to sleep or study in a quiet room, now I do it all the time. I still hear my tinnitus, but most of the time it doesn't seem that loud and at moments I even think it's quiet (when I plug my ears at such moments the T is as loud as ever, but not really when my ears are unplugged). I do still have spikes once and a while when I've been near loud environments and quickly switch to more quite environments. Am I habituating or is there a possibility that my T is slowly fading away? How does habituation actually work? I've been reading these amazing stories on this forum about habituation. But how does it change your perception of T? All those people in the world who presumably have tinnitus but not even give a damn about it or don't even know they have it. Is this because they habituated naturally?
