      Tinnitus Since:
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      In Southern California, my ear constantly rings like crazy, but when I head more towards Texas and the south, it completely goes away. It also went away when I was near Portland, Oregon. Has moving or traveling ever affected anyone else this way? Trying to figure out what it is... Maybe allergic to the air here?

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      I forget the specifics, but Michael J. Fox reported a significant functional improvement in his ability to move (Parkinson's) when he happened to be filming in a high altitude location (I believe it was South America?). Anyway, of interest.

      Probably headphones
      Altitude changes can be explained with pressure changes in the ear, but that's about it - all other explanations are most likely just voodoo science.

      Noise impact/maybe seaborn
      It's a really good question and I hope more people respond.

      I really want to put this to the test because what aggravates my tinnitus the most is changes in the weather. I want to move to a dry non-windy area and measure the impact. With that factor out of the way, dietary and other stimuli can be better tested and measured.

      Funny, but my family took several trips this summer down south in NC, FL, SC and in all locations my tinnitus was gone! As soon as we come home (DE) its back. I found your thread because I was looking to see if anyone else has had a similar experience.

      Hi, I am a tinnitus sufferer from China. My T is in my head. I also find that my T goes away if I move to the Southern part of the region where I live. I also can't figure out why.

      In the back-country or in wilderness areas, particularly at higher altitudes, I have noticed an effect.
