      So I'm sure many of us get spikes with certain foods. One notable one for me is dairy. But I still consume dairy knowing a spike will come and go.

      But today a spike has not faded like they usually do after having some yogurt.

      I'll give it more time before worrying about it too much but it posed the question, do food spikes cause actual damage over time and can actually raise one's base line permanently if done too often?

      In over ten years of this I don't think any food has ever spiked mine. Mine is LOUD all the time. I have noticed that alcohol lowers it, but raises it higher for a while the next day.

      Hmm... anecdotal, but in my experience, no. But I think the majority of the people here will say that food will cause only temporary spikes if any. We have this noise with us already... to also live cherry picking the food we eat would be too much lol.

      lots of foods spike mine. caffeine, salt, vinegar, citrus and dairy mainly. Just not sure if its harmless or not over the long run tinnitus wise.

      Did you reach a conclusion about this? I've been thinking about this also, but it has to do with CBD and other medical herbs

      Food doesn't. If you think you have a spike from food, it is probably a coincidence and something else did it.

      Exception might be something spicy but it would be temporary. I don't see how food would make t or any ear condition worse.

      Sugar and salt is claimed to do something but what is the science behind that?
