      I has only been over a month since I have tinnitus but this past 2 days it feels like I hear it less and less during the day and at night time it does not freak me out like in the beginning.. It actually feels less intrusive... Am I habituating to T or in fact T can get better and diminish greatly?

      Habituation usually doesn't kick in until after 6-12 months. So it's probably resolving on its own, which is what happens in most circumstances. :)

      Habituation to loud sounds is a myth. So yeah, your tinnitus is softening. You are now in Recovery mode, hold that!

      Same here. Most people will have their tinnitus fade in a year.For Few it might take like 2 years.

      The loud sounds will subside, thats definite.

      Mine is fading slowely. I would rate it 6/10. Was 8/10 when started. Progressing each month like 4%.

      I project to be fully recovered in 1.5 - 2 years. But I am already much better now. Almost back to normal life.

      just make sure to protect your hearing, get your supplements, cut caffeine and limit sugar. Just work to optimize ur health.

      @suera,

      That puts you in the same wretched place I am in, after only 18 months. I'm no closer to habituation, then being a lottery winner. There's pussycat T and then there's tiger T. No human being could habituate, this obnoxious screamer.

      If tinnitus persist/ still loud for more than 2 years that would indicate that the issue causing tinnitus is still occuring.
