      Has anyone notice that physical activity worsens your Tinnitus? When I get up in the morning my Tinnitus isn’t bad but after I walk my dog for a mile it gets bad and if I have a physical active day it’s pretty bad at night and I have to take a Lorazepam. So has anyone notice this?

      Yep, same with me. Seems pretty common. My T is from head / neck trauma, and not my ears. I suspect something touching up against my auditory system. Maybe increased blood flow to an inflamed muscle. Overall, I feel exercise is good for me.

      Do you know the cause of your T? If I put an ice pack on the back of my neck, it seems to settle it down. Also, warm showers seem to help -- maybe they relax the muscles or something.

      Yes mate,but only temporary it's because of the blood flow being pumped around the body I wouldn't worry about it to much it's good to get the body working and for your for the mind exercise is good for t.

      How long does it take you for the tinnitus to get better after physical activity. For me it takes a couple of hours but now I'm afraid to walk my dog, yard and house work and even going to the store and shopping for grocery's.
