      Okay, so I know this is going to sound completely silly, but can dreams spike T?

      I've been having dreams where I'm at a concert or somewhere else loud that I know I shouldn't be, and in my dream I say that I shouldn't be there because it's going to make the ringing worse.

      When I wake up from these dreams my ears are the loudest, just as if I had actually just left a concert.

      Does anyone else experience similar things?

      Yes, I had a nightmare one and woke to a very loud swooshing and pulsible T in my ears, followed by a spike in my T. After developing T from stress/anxiety/antibiotic use, I believe anything is possible in the brain.

      It is probably because you are worried and when you wake up they are louder from you thinking about it getting worse in the dream. Does the volume go down afterwards?

      I have similar problem, sometimes when I wake up at night T is highest then ever.
      I'm guessing that's because I teeth clenching and palatein sucking in sleep.

      Something very strange , I almost always have dreams/ nightmares about whatever in life is bothering me most. But since getting t since last march , I've never once had any dreams about t, even though the darn t is in my thoughts 24/7.
