      Well, I actually got 6 days of silence and no ringing, which is the longest streak I've had since July. In the last couple of months it has been cycling. 3 good days then 2 to 3 bad. Everytime the bad days come I try not to panic and know that the good days will follow. Of course, I have that lingering thought, what if it lasts longer then 2 or 3 days. Not sure I could take that. Not fully diagnosis yet. My first ENT appt is in Jan (the 4th). But my bad days are bad. Severe H, coupled with loud T, and dizziness. My gp prescribed Meclazine for the dizziness, which helps, however, hard to work when I take it. Makes me sleepy. I have to admit on bad days like this, sleep is hard to come by at night. Two small glasses of white wine did it last night. I hate to rely on that though. Its amazing on the good days, I forget how bad the bad days are. Guess I'm just looking for some selfish encouragement today. :(

      Not sure. I went to a concert back in July. Two days after the concert it started. However, when I had my hearing test done, they said it was not noise induced. I don't believe I have been correctly diagnosis yet. Haven't been able to get into an ENT. I go in Jan. That's when my insurance kicks in. Has been Horrible since July. Before July no issues. Maybe an ear infection in the winter here and there. I can actually learn to deal with the T. But this every three days Horrible T and Severe H is kiling me.

      It has to be the concert. A normal audiological test provides little to no information when it comes to T

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Still unknown... possibly noise exposure?
      I always find it odd that T can start a couple/few days after the exposure. When mine started up real loud I was sitting on the couch watching TV. Before that I had 3 days off work... and therefore wasn't exposed to any loud noise.

      Hmmm weird. Yea, today I feel great. No plugged ears, no T, no H. Nothing. 100 times different than yesterday. Not as dizzy as yesterday either. It's gotten to the point now where it just gets bad 1 day a week or so. And its bad when its bad. But hey I'll take 1 day to 2 days a week if I get 4 to 5 days of silence and relief.

      Maybe you'll be lucky and your T will fade into oblivion and you'll never hear from it again. I sure hope so.

      The dizziness issues, should be looked into a bit further. Your ENT may order an MRI. If you do it, get good earplugs, because they are extremely noisy!

      Pregnancy or mild hearing loss.. Who knows.
      Mine cycles like yours. 2-3 good days followed by 1-2 bad days and 2-3 good days .. If it wasn't for the good days I don't know what I would do. Today has been so loud and annoying I can feel my frustration and anxiety flairing and it's driving me crazy! Just a loud hissing static sound that is driving me nuts vrs yesterday which was amazingly quiet..

      Sorry to hear that. Mine is back to quiet today. Yesterday it was humming pretty loud. I think yesterday was my bad day. Dizzy loud humming, but guess what no plugged ears and no hypercausis this week. I did realize the humming stops when I bend over. Also if it is silent and I bend over sometimes its starts. I wondering if this might have something to do with a pinched nerve in my neck? I dont go to the ENT for couple more weeks. But my cycles are going about 4 to 5 good days now maybe 1 or 2 bad. So a little encouraging.

      Maybe seek out a Neurologist and see if there is a nerve issue creating your problem? How's your blood pressure?
