      This sounds really weird but I can't tell if the noise is really loud or really soft it's just kinda like a constant electric sound in there. I'm really confused anyone know what I'm talking about? My head just feels weird.

      @Jason C maybe I should seriously give that a try. I am in kind of a panic trying to decide what it is that I'm heading in my head.

      I think I kind of get you. My T on onsent was very faint. I had to struggle to hear it even with my fingers jammed into my ears.

      Now my T is not as faint. I can hear it in quieter environments. When someone asks me if it's loud, I don't really know what to say.

      But I think that if you can't tell whether it's loud or not, then it isn't loud. Not soft either, but maybe moderate?

      People here talk about T that they can hear over almost everything, including plane engines. Now that's loud!

      It's making my head feel funny kind of like I'm buzzed I'm so confused. Before this I had to really listen now I feel like my heads buzzing.

      @Katvanallen, do you mean to say your head is also vibrating? Because I had that for about a month, that whole head vibration. I dreaded going to bed because I felt it most when lying down. Incidentally, my T was also at the loudest it had been at that time.

      @Lex yes I think so. Hey also do you experience short spikes like 5 or 10 seconds? I get them almost every day. Scars the crap out of me.

      It's called fleeting tinnitus, it's very common.

      If you don't know if it's loud or quiet, just decide that it's quiet ! And then you're fine.

      Like @maestromusica said, it's fleeting tinnitus and it's supposedly a normal occurrence for people with T. I get this too sometimes, and it always scares me because I don't know whether or not it will die down and go back to my baseline volume. There was also one instance when my ears just shut down -- like I went totally deaf, I couldn't hear anything not even my usual T -- before I heard a loud, high-pitched ting that drowned out everything else. The deafness lasted around five seconds and the ting for around ten. Scariest 15 seconds of my life.
