      Does anyone experience tinnitus at either extreme loudness or totally no tinnitus during the middle of your sleep?

      No clue - too many causes.
      All this is redundant and I know there are new members here. Since I'm legally
      deaf and wear a cochlear implant (CI) 99% of the time during the day, it's a loud
      bother most of the time. I thought my rare ride on my motorcycle(s) yesterday
      would be better - has been in the past - I will not wear the implant on it, so buzzing increases.

      At night, I tend to try to ignore the fact that the Titanic (robinbird coined that one) is
      going to make my head feel like ciadas and T noise fireworks. It doesn't scare me. It does carve out its
      usual hellhole and it is a sinking ship in many ways.

      Now, I wish I could be optimistic but this is my reality.

      Louder, but I am still scared by mind and haven't cracked a sleep routine. Vicious circle, bad sleep even worse T.

      mine is unpredictable. I might wake up with no problem after even a good night sleep, or wake up because Mr. T is literally screaming.

      it's always there, but often (and it's the worst case scenario for me) I wake up in the middle of night with a really bad spike. It never happens during the day. During the day the T is the 'usual' or if I get 'spikes' they are much different and lighter, more like the occasional T i have experienced in past years, the occasional ringing, which only lasted for a few seconds. The nocturnal spike feels much different and violent

      Louder but I am still able to go back to sleep. It's also louder in the morning for a few hours before it calms down to baseline.

      Mine calms down a little bit when I sleep, I wake up and it's ok (loud static) but within 5 minutes of being awake it starts to get shrill and painful again.

      Barking dogs/stress
      Not only is it louder, but sometimes the physical sensation of a buzz saw whirring in my head is very strong. One night a few weeks ago it really felt like my brain was being sawed in half. Absolutely freaked me out.

      As I wake up, I have the metallic hissing static, and then the tea kettle whistle joins in as soon as I'm completely awake. Idiotic neurons.

      T is usually distant from the focal point of my consciousness while I'm laying in quiet. Once in a while I wake up with a severe tone blast on one side or the other, but that only seems to happen when my stress and anxiety levels are not well managed.

      I get the loudest spikes when I am asleep. Sometimes I get no spikes, but often I do (while asleep). I started checking my blood pressure when I have these spikes and it's always higher. I never get these same spikes when I am awake

      Also, I noticed that the T gets worse (but not the above mentioned spikes) when I go somewhere, suggesting again that the blood pressure increases and the T gets worse.

      Well I guess we can look forward to those few minutes a day where we are not totally awake yet. Lol. To be honest, it's kind of what keeps me going, I lay there and feel a bit normal for about 2-5 min before my T gets to unbearable levels again. It's about 20 percent quieter and way less shrill, I could function properly if it changed to that. It would still be loud and shity as hell but at least livable. Everyday I wake up and have this hope that it will stay lower, two years straight of daily let downs now :( maybe one day though!

      Mine is always quieter in the morning.
      Some nights if I wake gently I find it is silent, so I end up lying listening to the silence. On others if I wake in a vivid dream it's louder, but I know if I go back to sleep it resets it again, I realise I need to complete my sleep to bring it down to its normal morning quiet.

      I have variable tinnitus. For me, this means that no two days are the same. It can be: silent, mild, moderate, severe or extremely severe.
