      Does anyone else hear hearing test like beeps in their tinnitus?

      I mostly only hear it if it's quiet, but before it wouldn't happen as often. These beeps I've had have turned into a hearing test if I am somewhere quiet. It is just so curious (and horrendous) that it sounds like this with beeps of different frequencies that last only about a second or two, but then another one starts just a second or two after it.

      Am I the only one with this?

      My impression is that this is a good sign, fluctuations as opposed to a pure unchanging tone.

      Be super mindful of your diet and protect your ears...
      I am optimistic you are recovering...

      I like your optimism Daniel. I was also thinking this could be the same, my wife also was telling me so. Only thing is these beeps weren't as often before. It's just really ugly sounds when I do hear it. When I'm out and about I only hear the steady ring but in my room if I don't have my sound machine on, that's where I hear it. I hope it is healing too.

      Man, tinnitus is so complex... I don’t know.
      Perhaps try no sound machine... do an experiment.
      Slow and steady... your wife sounds smart... she may be onto something.
      Good luck.

      I still have no idea if it's a good sign, bad sign, or just how it is. It did all improve a bit from before but it seems that the improving may have stopped or slowed down. I'm really not sure..

      This shit takes time... change is a good sign... being positive is most important for your health and loved ones. I really am feeling confident that you are on your way to a better place.

      Remember ears take a long time to heal... stay positive man... it will help.

      Thank you so much, brother. I am a little optimistic too. I also think the change is a good sign, perhaps the beeps were part of the super loud noise I had before but are now weakening. I sure will take care of them, I've learned my lesson.
