I injured my back, neck and ears a couple of weeks ago and developed ear popping and clicking that interferes with my sleep. If I apply heat to my ears, head, and neck...my tinnitus totally stops for hours. Why is this? The tinnitus comes back...but at least I can get some temporary relief. I have used a heating pad and immersed my head in a hot bath. My T has improved considerable over the last couple of weeks - but I can't lift anything or it comes right back. I would love to hear some feedback.
