      Loud music
      My t has been all over the place. In the beginning I could only hear it in silence and not over loud noise. Then I became very sensitive to sound and it would hardly hear it in silence. At first it was just ringing and I also had an ear infection so it was at its loudest then some light whooshing . I then took predisnone and seemed to lower the ringing but my ears felt full and clogged.

      Now it's more ringing but when I'm in silence it sounds kind of like a drill noise with a light ringing in the background

      Yeah part of my T sounds like a dentist drill (at highest speed) grinding down a tooth. I can hear it all the time and it's loud. Its driven me to madness.

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Probably sound, though never proven
      I would describe it (unhelpfully) as what I would expect to hear if I was dragging a stylus across a a pane of glass, hard, somedays harder than others.

      Mine is like this only higher pitched. I wish my tinnitus and hearing loss was in the normal range so I could try hearing aids. This very high pitched dentist drill that I can hear everywhere and H is just unrelenting torture.
