Can a Sauna or Steam Room Lower Tinnitus?

      Tinnitus Since:
      There has been some times where I have got out of the shower and my tinnitus seems lower.

      This doesn't happen all the time though so I am not sure what causes it. I have seen other people on here say similar statements or that hot baths and hot showers lower their tinnitus on a regular basis.

      I was wondering if it would be worth it to go to a sauna or steam room.

      Has anyone had any experiences with this?

      I found a video where a guy goes over various hormonal and body changes that happen when a body is exposed to a sauna (dry heat) or a steam room (humid) and was thinking that one or some of those changes could be the reasons why it lowers tinnitus in some people.

      My tinnitus is higher after a shower. Way I see it, unless you have mild tinnitus, if it's loud enough to silence your T, it's loud enough to spike you.

      Mine got really low after the sauna yesterday. I was in there for about 20 minutes and literally went quiet. It's back up today but still!
