      But doesn't everyone hear sound kind of noise in total stillness,
      I have asked couple of friends and family members to sit in a still room where it is about 18db and they all say the hear a low buzzing noise, but that they don't give it much attention

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Acoustic trauma (club drumming)
      Used to go walking in in the Peak District with my family when I was younger. Sometimes when we set out in the very early morning and got to the top of a small mountain, it used to be perfectly still. We would all sit and try and keep as quiet as possible.

      I distinctly remember straining to hear and the resulting sensation of hearing absolutely nothing, not my own heartbeat, not a rustle of fabric or wind.

      My own T has definitely shifted to the inside of my head since about 3 months in. I went caving a few weeks ago - my friend, the leader and I sat in a pitch black cave under 30ft of solid rock. I still 'hear' nothing from the environment (probably less than I would have when younger!), but the sensation of sound is still there, bordering on being a 'feeling' rather than noise.

      Could see how if you had faint T you wouldn't even notice it if you were trying, you'd just think that was what silence sounded like.

      There are many people without hearing lose that have T/H.
      Whats the hypothesis on that?
      Sleep is everything. A good shot of Calm Magnesium seems to help.

      Interesting theory but what about the people that have alot of hearing loss but no t? There are even deaf people with no t.

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Most likely hearing loss
      So about tinnitus we can say: that there are people with no hearing loss with T (at least by standard audiogram standards), people with mild hearing loss and T, people with mild hearing loss and NO T, people with tons of hearing loss and T, people with tons of hearing loss and NO T, Deaf people with T, Deaf people without T and people dreaming with no T.....hmmmm, no wonder we can't cure this thing!

      The hypothesis now is that the kind of hearing damage that triggers tinnitus is not visible on a normal audiogram. It is thought that the damage/dysfunction is in the neural connections between the cochlea and the central nervous system. Those nerve endings are thought to be much less resilient that stereocilia as well, with damage occuring below the limit of 85 db for 8 hours.

      This was found recently and has been coined under the term ''hidden hearing loss''.

      This comes as no surprise to me. I have had episodes where I hear no tinnitus at all when I find myself in a state between sleep and consciousness. It's what you would call drowsy or "half asleep" in English. I'm not talking about simple reduction or not paying attention to it; I'm talking about total submission. But this of course does not last for long. If the duration could be extended then I would more or less be cured. I know I am not the only one to have experienced this. But how do you keep this state of mind? What's the plan?

      My short episodes of tinnitus submission usually last less than about 30 seconds. To tell you the truth, it's hard to tell if it's real or of it's my mind playing tricks on me. But I have experienced it a few times by now, and I have managed to cross the line and walk deep into the conscious side more than once to know that what I have experienced is real and not a dream. Each time it felt heavenly, and I wanted to hold onto this feeling. But each time the tinnitus crept back in as I became increasingly conscious. So I say go ahead Dr. Riddler, do your magic trick and make this moment of trance and tranquility last forever! :blackalien:

      Strange thing is that over the years I do naps and after a nap my tinnitus sometimes turns into a hiss instead of a beep. I wonder why.

      Usually when I take sleeping aid as I start to pass out my ringing is almost gone. Something I don’t usually get when I go to sleep naturally

      Title:
      Method of treating a neurological disorder using network stimulation

      Abstract:
      Methods are provided to treat a neurological disorder in a patient by adjusting connectivity between network nodes in a brain of patient using electrical stimulation. Connectivity between network nodes may be increased by synchronous stimulation at multiple network nodes depending upon the neurological disorder. Also, connectivity may be decreased by asynchronous or randomized stimulation at multiple network nodes depending upon the neurological disorder.

      Lately, I've noticed that in my memories, even my memory of yesterday, I cannot recall the sensation of tinnitus alongside whatever else I did that day. Similarly, I don't have a good memory of pains that I've experienced. I am actually very comforted by the fact that I don't "remember" tinnitus plaguing my lived experiences.

      That is because our mind has a very bad history of pain. Luckily for us though. We don't remember the pain that we fell on our knee as a child.

      Brain research is still in its infancy, but I personally believe it's the key to curing chronic tinnitus and hyperacusis.
