      Tinnitus Since:
      Yeah I also had this after I had a CT scan a while back, every time I would fall asleep there would be an electric shock type thing and I would wake up straight away. Only happened on the first night though. Don't know if you've had a CT scan and it's related.

      2002 or before unsure
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Unknown, no unusual hearing loss,not loud noise exposure
      Interesting to see this topic! Almost every night I feel/here a snap that makes me think of an electric shock. There is no pain and it happens only once in a night. It has worried me a little but I had not associated it with my tinnitus.

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Yes, usually about once a month, an electric shock, and the snap which sounds like electricity...I heard on NPR today the they have done some successful studies where a person is administered electrical shock to the head for 30 minutes each day for a month, some are cured, others it is much less severe..

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Loud noise exposure / headphone accident maybe?
      I woke up in the middle of the night, last night, and me T sounded like you discribed for a few minutes.
      Randomly, perhaps because I woke up in the middle of a cycle.
