      Noise-induced, Ear Infection, Medication... Who knows?
      I started out today with my tinnitus in ears and managed to lay down for a bit and now its in the middle of my head:( seems to fluctuate all the time like this , anyone else have this? also my noise fluctuates too, by this I mean.. I may start with loud static and it will change to loud hissing to low crickets and has even went away for the day. wonder what is going on with my brain? I have had almost 2 years, habituation seems like it will never come for me because of this...

      I wonder why tinnitus fluctuates in some people, mine fluctuates too.... habituation occurs regardless of the fluctuation of tinnitus, its more of accepting tinnitus.... wish u the best :)

      Hi there Jeannie, I have the exact same thing - mine fluctuates a lot too.
      I have just asked Dr Nagler about this. Apparently, when it comes to the success rates of TRT, it doesn't matter whether your T fluctuates or not.
      I'm not doing TRT though ( at the moment) but I'm sure I read somewhere that habituation could take longer if your T fluctuates but habituation will still happen. So hang on in there honey. Xx

      I am still waiting for a good day after a year of hell every day, I read about them on here all the time. If I could just get one low day a week I could live with this. Anyone know why mine would not fluctuate? Why it's solid, the same no matter what I do? It's loud high pitched, a lot of different noises and so loud that it hurts. Absolutely never let's up. Why does it not fluctuate like most!?? The only time it appears to be louder is when there is another noise it competes with.

      Then perhaps it's time for you to get more pro-active about it.

      What exactly are you doing to facilitate the habituation process?
