      Tinnitus Since:
      Hey guys,
      Its been almost 5 months since my Onset.
      with lots of ups and downs since my tinnitus fluctuates a lot!.

      these past 3 weeks have been amazing, tinnitus have been "bearly there"
      from a mild hissing sound, it has become a "have to cover my ears to listen for it" sound
      or..." i only notice it at night".
      and obviously it has been pure pleasure to me.

      today i woke up with a terrible headache and pain in the back of my head,
      and the hissing is back, and its very noticible.

      i havent had changes in my diet.
      the only thing that i did "differently" last night was.

      -spending time with a friend in her bedroom and she was smoking ( i hate the smell )
      -i ate a pizza slide before going to sleep.

      usually i need to have dinner 3 hours before going to sleep cause then i would woke up in the next day with my blood pressure higher.
      i think i might have a bloodflow problem because of this.
      i dont know, what do you guys think?

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Warehouse event after years of enjoying music.
      probably not related to anything.

      Mine fluctuates like crazy also. I have had multiple days in a row of complete silence, only to be woken up from a dead sleep to a tuning fork in my head. I had a great run from july 3-7th this week, and today I've got a tape hiss going on.

      I'd not worry too much about your diet, and I'd be cautious what most tell you about it. Correlation doesn't imply causation, and most people you talk to looking for patterns are likely too panicked and frustrated to provide useful notes.

      Tinnitus Since:
      Thanks Tom,
      i agree with you,
      but the fact that these 3 weeks it has settle.
      and that today i woke up with a headache and head pain with louder t.
      makes me thing that there was a reason.

      months prior to tinnitus i used to get higher blood pressure in the morning if i had dinner late.

      makes me think that when i eat something all blood goes to the stomach to process food, and thats why i would get tachycardia the morning after.
      since my onset cause is still a "mystery" im afraid that maybe not enough blood is reaching to my head, but thats just an idea i have.
