      I don't know if anyone else has this but from a week before to a week after my period I get this odd tinnitus sound, it's not that it's louder than the ringing, but it's much more difficult to mask.

      I used to get it for one week every month, but now it's changed to a few days every 6 or 7 weeks.

      I can tell it's definitely to do with my hormonal changes, which I find really weird.

      Do a lot of you guys have this??

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Virus, Allergies, TMJ, Stress
      My T definitely spikes a coule days before, during and after my menstrual, it's so loud it can't be masked while other days it's low and doesn't bother me. I feel like hormones play a role. Maybe there are tests or natural ways through diet and daily exercise to regulate hormones so this doesn't happen as often every month.

      Who knows
      Definite increase in my T half the month. Freaks me out each and every time until I check my calendar. Makes complete habituation difficult i find.

      Tinnitus is not just affected by oestrogen and progesterone. Other hormonal changes are known to affect tinnitus.
