      Tinnitus Since:
      20 May 2016
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Perforated ear drum
      Since having tinnitus I've experienced a lot of different spikes.

      First high pitch noise which I've got 24/7.

      Some times my ear goes deaf for a split second. Sometimes accompanied by a stupidly loud scream high pitch noise which fades out. And this humming vibrating feeling.

      I've had tinnitus for almost 4 months now.

      I had what I believe was a spike a few months ago. I didn't even do or go anywhere for it to happen and I was actually sitting in "silence" when it did. I had the high pitch for about 3-4 days. And before I knew it. Was back to baseline. Now this humming I was having on an off hours at a time.
      Iv now had it constant for 24 hours. Is this another type of spike.

      What does a spike actually mean?

      I don't do anything for my tinnitus to get worse. I've even started wearing earplugs when hoovering. So why is my tinnitus all over the place. I do not understand. :(
