      Hi all,

      When I take a hot bath my tinnitus sometimes reduces enormously. I'm wondering if it has anything to do with lowering my blood pressure or increasing the blood flow. I don't think the effect could be completely due to relaxation.

      Any ideas?

      Wake up every morning with T. get up...have a hot shower...80% of the time T reduced to almost nothing, so I have a good day! Still get bad days despite the hot shower but I'm glad of the good days. Pattern of good days bad is weird...seems to make no sense to me. How can I have no T one day and loud the next? Crazy! Sometimes 4 days straight with no T, other times 4 days in a row with T...crazy:)

      Hot showers sometimes lowers my T for an hour or so..

      It's why I shower before bed mostly.

      Sometimes it has no effect.
      But I think blood pressure is a huge factor in change of T.

      T levels are linked to your central nervous system. If you can find stuff that relaxes you and brings you out of fight or flight, sometimes your t will back down.

      Hi all, It does it for me also - in the beginning I used it during the day to lower the noise... Still works.

      Great that it works for more people!

      I'm going visit a spa where they have thermal water bathes. Really looking forward to that!

      I don't know. Isn't a hammam a Turkish bath house? Where I'm going there is a spring of thermal water (the water is pumped up from a 600 meter deep well and contains 116 grams of minerals per liter ;-). You soak and float for a while and then rest.

      recently discovered hot tub diminishes the ringin. the shower diminishes it while I'm in there but soon as water off the T comes back with force . highly recommend a hot bath or hot tub if one is available . did wonders for me . glad to hear hot water helps others!!

      I have had the most horrible week of screeching tinnitus and still have it currently ( going completely crazy) however last night I decided to have a bath instead of a shower and it certainly reduced the tinnitus. It was only short lived but I was wondering what it is about the bath, blood flow and relaxation of the muscles around the jaw/ear I guess,but I could be wrong! Wish I could live in the bath 24/7 to stop this nightmare shrieking and squealing that I have had this past week.

      I've had tinnitus for about 6 weeks. No idea how it started. Woke up one day, and there it was. I too have found that I gat relief most of the time after a hot shower. Not always, but most of the time. I can be having a good day, but if I take a nap, when I wake up, the tinnitus is there. Really weird and not sure what it is about taking a nap that will start my tinnitus up again. Anyone else experience this too?

      Yes, yes and yes! I noticed in a hot bath...it really lowers in volume/annoyance and the last bath I had almost thought it was gone! and yes..naps seem to ramp it up...hmmmm..guess I'm going to have a bath after my naps..lol
      @Paul Burdett ~ I have the same thing...on my "bad" days, I can hardly believe I've had good days..On my good days, I'm starting to write a promise to myself, that I'm really experiencing "relief"...b/c it almost feels like a dream and that it never happened, or that I was tricking myself...but no,,really and truly, I have great wonderful days of almost not hearing it at all and forgetting I have it and thinking....ahhhh..it's over....only to have it sneak in again....why??? So I get through bad days, b/c I know good days are coming....sigh..

      I wish my bathtub wasn't disgusting. There is no way I'd be able to relax in it.
