      Or which ear has the loudest tinnitus? I was curious if sleep position could have an effect on tinnitus since sometimes people wake up with louder tinnitus.

      My T is in both my ears and mind so it doesn't matter what position...having said that, I am completely habituated to it (20 years) and it is nothing more or less than a normal part of my life...

      Probably headphones
      T on left and mainly sleep on the right side. When I sleep on my left side, I obviously hear the T louder first, but then it quiets down a bit after a while. Rain sounds for masking on the background.

      I'm trying to learn to sleep on my back on a wedge because I have back pain issues and I think this is beneficial.

      Sometimes if I sleep with earplugs in, it seems to have some impact on T when I wake up, and once or twice I've slept in really awful positions which has strained my neck and given me worse ringing upon waking, but mostly it doesn't matter.

      Still unknown... possibly noise exposure?
      It seems that sleeping on my left side has the most calming effect in my T. I could be wrong though, just what I think seems to be happening.
