      Hi, this may sound strange, but are there any clothing materials, such as bamboo, that can aggravate tinnitus?

      Thank you.

      Metal buttons can be pretty loud when clinking against surfaces such as washing machines/dryers.

      Unless the clothing makes loud noise or you have reactive tinnitus to a specific frequency I don't understand how the hell noise would affect tinnitus, this is a very silly thread based on nonsense.

      If someone in this group has a question let us answer it the best way with can with respect and kindness.
      If you have nothing positive or helpful please do not comment and move on. It is really frustrating to read some comments that are either childish, rude or simply insulting to the others. SMH

      I don't think they would aggravate your tinnitus but if you have hyperacusis there are certain fabrics that can produce an annoying noise. Ex. Gore-Tex, windstopper, and other fabrics that aid in blocking wind can only do this at a cost. Noise.

      I for instance stopped wearing rain/snow jackets and pants because the "swish, swish, swish" sounds it makes. Not that it is loud, just annoying.

      Other than that, I do not know of any fabrics that produce noise that can aggravate tinnitus.

      If you are talking about clothing causing spikes, then my answer would be that it depends. I care about observations, unlike you, I wouldn't just assume that something like that is impossible (with this approach, one would likely assume that all giraffe images had been photoshopped). So if there have been multiple reports from multiple posters about something causing tinnitus, I would take note of it, and then be able to let others know about it.

      I am not aware of any reports of clothing causing spikes.

      It is reported that a percentage of the population are psychologically highly sensitive. They will react more strongly to stimuli and this can preclude wearing certain fabrics. Whether this over sensitivity can impact on tinnitus? I have no idea.

      Their reaction can be to bright lights and sounds amongst other things, and we know that tinnitus can be a diva when exposed to certain sounds.

      So your solution is to tell them to continue getting stimulated (thereby giving them spikes, increasing their stress levels, and making them sensitive to even more gentle stimuli)?

      And before you can say that your solution includes advising them to try to reduce their stress - advising them to keep getting exposed to what gives them spikes (for whatever reason) is doing the opposite of reducing stress in their life.

      Her solution IS to tell those people to ignore their symptoms. There is clearly a problem with it. Right?

      I have no wish to converse with someone who cannot understand what is written. I have no solution, merely to offer a possible explanation for why there is a sensitivity to fabric. Your response is why I have not posted for months and shall abstain again.

      Yes. I agree that it is important to consider different people's experiences with whatever. I remember back in 2002 being so worried about a prescription topical ointment to help a scar on my face. The reply came from a so called "expert" that it was impossible for the ointment to cause any negative changes in my tinnitus. That reply was wrong.

      So yeah it is okay to ask these questions especially when someone is rather new to tinnitus.

      Do you still remember the brand name of the ointment?

      I was just wondering if a new mattress could cause tinnitus. There are a lot of mattress allergies. Has anyone heard of this?? I got my tinnitus after a new serta mattress was purchased . I agree fabrics can cause irritation from rubbing sounds . When you have sensitive ears every sound no matter how low. can make one uncomfortable . Off fabric topic i was food shopping today which is something i used to enjoy before tinnitus. The sound of peoples shoes when they stop walking make an uncomfortable screech on the floor which really bothers me. Shopping carts being pulled apart make a loud bang which i find extremely difficult. I try not to wear the earplugs out shopping just to get a break from them.

      Velcro is annoying. If you have H or any middle ear sensitivities like TTTS, it’s not your friend.
