      Just to check is it dafe to use electric toothbrush?

      Will that aggravate or spike or T?

      My concern is not the noise from the toothbrush but the vibration it makes.
      Will the vibration shake the inner hairs cells off and cause T?

      Please let me know as I find electric toothbrush able to clean better.

      This must be the oddest question I have come across. Anyway, on a serious note, I see no reason why you can't use 'em. I use them and I had hyperacuis and I was ok. So chill and white those whites!

      I am almost tempted to label these kinds of questions as trolling... :)

      I had the same question about electric shavers ? I have stopped using mine for month's and gone to a blade but I would rather not. I'm still not sure if if its safe or not or can it mess with tinnitus ? Maybe someone has input on this.

      Thank you

      Reason for asking is I read up high impact exercise can shake the inner hair crystals out of place so is that similar to vibrations conducted to the inner hair and could this cause or worsen T?

      You think high contact exercise can hurt your ears? First time I heard that.

      Keep on using your electric toothbrush, because unhealthy teeth will FOR SURE make you feel worse and thus also worsen your T. And in general, stress less about things affecting or not affecting your T. :)

      Hello Thongjy!

      I do not think it´s a stupid question, I´ve been thinking about this exact same thing myself. I too, like to use an electric toothbrush, I feel they clean a lot better. But, sometimes I´ve noticed it affecting my tinnitus for a short while after brushing, giving it a more deep vibration, or however I should explain it. This isn´t always happening, just two or three times out of ten brushings.

      That high impact exercise-thing makes sense too, to me anyway. Earlier, when I had the energy to exercise regularly, my tinnitus always got worsened after the exercise. Don´t know the reason, it may also be because I were tired.


      Sound Wave: am I a troll for experiencing and then writing these things?
