      When I pass by refrigerated sections of the grocery store, I hear notes like it is singing to me. All of the humming of the various appliances there sounds louder than people talking. My ultra high pitched fizz comes out too there. I checked with my sound meter and it isn't loud there only around 50db. Then, when I go in the car in silence my T is all over the place singing at me the notes it was producing in the store. Somehow my actual hearing is still fine, in fact it has been improving, even though it has always been normal. Anyone have any ideas or a similar experience? This is getting stranger by the minute.

      It sounds like nerve damage that you have. Do you have typewritter tinnitus ? I.e. 'be be be beb beeee bee '.

      End of February. Idk. I had a baby a month before. I also have toddler. I had a C-section and was up for days at a time without sleep. I was insanely stressed physically and mentally. One day I woke up with the t after being sensitive to sounds for a couple of days. A few days later I felt like I couldn't hear well. A few days after that I got really dizzy after driving and stayed dizzy until I got some Prednisone. Gradually I started feeling better but it was a slow process. I still had the t but wasn't dizzy and didn't have problems with hearing, so a month ago I weaned off the Prednisone. A week or so later, I got really dizzy again. Then I went back on the Prednisone at half the dose and now I am not dizzy anymore. Still have the t though.

      Idk I'm scared to try that.

      I think I must have some sort of nerve damage. Something is obviously wrong with my vestibular system since I can't drive a car at all without Prednisone. I have no idea how this happened. Anyone know if this will heal in time?

      Do you mean your balance or motor skills are affected?

      I have your symptoms without the balance stuff. all electronic/white noises produce thee loud screams (sine waves) at certain frequncies. Cooking, water boiling with lid open, cars driving by in distance etc. A lot of the stuff you mentioned naturally produces high pitched tones, like refigerators at supermakerts. Same with a lot of appliance. I noticed mine wasn't that for sure when i found it being emitted by things like the ocean, cars driving by in the distance, or white noise. I have it in both ears even though i only have tinnitus in one ear.

      Maybe visiting your GP or a specialist might help. Having a baby puts a huge amount of physical and mental stress on the body. Aside from that, you mentioned you had many sleepless nights as well. These factors alone may have aggravated your T. As you mentioned, you said the dizziness you feel has subsided but the T has remained. Has your T changed in duration, frequency, or in tone?

      Thanks for your help. I have been to countless drs on the past 6 months. None of them know what is wrong with me. My GP is looking for a specialist out of town to send me to, like John Hopkins or Mass Eye and Ear
      I didn't have T until after I had my baby. The dizziness was shortly after that. The dizziness is better with taking the Prednisone. When I tried to get off of it it came back again.
