      To make sure I tried everything i stopped drinking coffee and wine. Things I love so much.
      I will continue doing so for 1 month so see if this affects my T. So far after 1.5 week I cannot tell any difference.

      Does coffee or wine spike your T?

      rt... Hah! Wine is the evening version of coffee! A glass or two, as I have to support my local economy and the view out over the valley takes on a more...nuanced hue! Also it's good for you aka "The French Paradox", etc., etc. :)

      Neither
      affect my tinnitus one bit. Though the evening wine (not on Retigabine...sigh!) sure makes it a bit easier to handle. What did Michael Douglas say in "Traffic"...Oh yeah. It takes the edge off!

      No, I have found that the only thing dietary that effects my T are salt, aspartame and MSG.

      No, not me. One cup of coffee to wake up. Wish I could have more, but I want to have some good sleep. A glass of wine or two in the evening is nice and relaxing. As a matter of fact, this post reminded me to have a glass of chardonnay. Thank you.

      I'm in the wine business and drink it fairly regularly -- obviously. No effect as far as I can tell...

      Yes, both. Caffeine - immediate onset of spike, can last for up to two weeks. Wine - lowers it immediately, next day spike due to down regulated gaba from wine. Can last a few days.
      Don't have wine very often.
      Try to never have caffeine, but it is hard in a cafe. As when we ask for decaf, they often do not rinse the equipment from the caffeinated coffee made just before.
