      Hi Lilah
      My T changes/pulses a bit with movement too. I also have sandy sounds whenever I swallow and clicking in left ear. As well as my T I have suspected sonethsom else is going bon on my left side as it is somatic and the swallowing sandy sounds and crackling. How would you know if you have ETD?

      Thanks
      Paul

      I had negative ear pressure in my first tympanometry test which indicated ETD. However, the second time, my pressure was normal. Did you see the ENT yet? The ENT would check if you have other issues like inflammation, fluid, etc.

      Mine seems to be going from moderate one day to severe the next. How loud is your tinnitus? Is it intrusive?

      acoustic trauma?
      I yawned or moved my jaw momentarily and my t changed from the usual to a constant single tone. It did return to the usual but what is that? I don't think I have tmj or if you can have very minor tmj, would that be a sign?
      Or is it just one of several potential fluctuations?

      Mine can fluctuate after naps or waking up say a few hours before I set my alarm. The other day I woke up with tinnitus at 8am, then at 11am when I reawoke it was gone.

      I know what you're saying, but all the muscles, nerves, etc. that you said stay consistent from day to day while people's tinnitus fluctuates. Also @Greg Sacramento I have issues looking down, up and touching my ears to my shoulder. However my looking left and right isn't so bad. Are those symptoms possible related to my neck being jammed into maybe my head? Like occiput issues.

      That's really weird. Mine does that too actually, I can wake up at 4 am and it's quiet, then again at 7 am and it's loud. I wonder about bruxism and tinnitus.

      I got tinnitus in June of 2017. For the first 6 months it was constant. Since January of 2018 it's always there still, but 50% of the time it's either barely audible and/or not annoying.

      I got a splint that helped move my jaw back into position. I was wearing my splint like 18 hours a day like a pacifier. I've recently tried to cut that down since the last week to 12 hours a day.

      How exciting. Do you think it was the splint that made the tinnitus quieter?

      There is a post in the success stories forum here from someone who had it go after 4 years as a result of a splint

      I had a custom splint made to try to help with this constant headache I had but I can't seem to get to sleep with it in since tinnitus.

      I just think it helped moved my jaw into a better position.. In the beginning when I would first get my splint tightened, my tinnitus would go away completely for like a day or two, then come back.

      Is your fluctuating tinnitus just random days or is it more like mine where you get a block of good days in a row then blocks of bad days in a row? It's almost like something builds up in my system that gives me bad days of tinnitus, then it's released which follows by good days. I usually get 4-5 bad days in a row, then 4-5 good days in a row then back to bad days and so on.
