      Hi!! Just wanted share an idea I had.

      Well, most people say his T is louder in the morning and softer in the night. Maybe this is because the brain "knock out" the "over-firing" neurons in the DCN and other areas.

      But, ¿What if the over-firing neurons are in the ear? Then they should not be affected by the oder neurons in the brain. So this people with acute T feel the same in the morning and the night.

      What do you think about this?

      ¿Is your T louder in the morning?
      ¿Do you have T < 3 months?
      ¿Whas due to acoustc truma, NIHL or otitis?

      Answer that question could be a interesting survey.

      Dont know... Just wanted share this with you. What do you think about this?

      Greetings!

      Great questions Jahhsoul!

      Unfortunately I wish I could answer your questions and figure out why people hear the ringing of Tinnitus louder in the morning and softer at night or vice versa. So far, all we can give are theories as to why this happens.

      Studies show that the neurons of the brain do engage in an "over-firing" frenzy but then other studies claim that the neurons that have been affected die and disappear.

      What I do know is that the neurons which form out of the auditory cortex make way towards the cochlea and form the bundle of auditory nerves which then play a role in how we hear frequencies (as each connect to more than one hair cell - Outer Hair Cells and Inner Hair Cells) and conduct neurotransmitting functions that allow us to feel the emotions we do from the sound waves our hair cells pick up. (A good reason why I think a lot people feel more stressed, get depression, and anxiety from Tinnitus)

      As to answer your questions -

      1) 5 months ago when I ruined my hearing and developed very loud tinnitus and bad hyperacusis, my Tinnitus would be much louder at night.

      2) As of so far, I can still hear ringing if I plug my ears but there are far more worse problems I've having now from my hearing issue. I basically have age-related hearing loss now. I hear a lot of electrical noises going on every night.

      3) Yes, my Tinnitus and Hyperacusis was noise-induced.

      How are you handling yours?

      Hi Nick, I was a drummer 4 years ago ;)

      My T is idiopathic, maybe NIHL, maybe otitis, cervical problems, isquemia in the cochlea, I dont know.. I´m 4 months with it.

      Answering my questions:

      1)Yes.
      2)Yes.
      3)Dont know.

      Well my T is like a 3/10, but Im hacing problems with habituation since I am still trying recover to a 0/10 or at least a 1/10.

      Drummer greetings!! :beeranimation:
