How loud was your tinnitus when you first noticed it, and how loud is it now? It would be interesting to compare evolution of loudness among members. Use a scale of 1 to 10 to express the loudness. Keep in mind that results here cannot be used to estimate proabillites for your tinnitus to grow in volume if its a low one. The reason for this is that this forum does not represent the general tinnitus population, since one of the reasons people come here is that they struggle with tinnitus while the average person with tinnitus does not. Mine started off pretty mild, cannot hear it during most of the day but it tends to grow in volume when im tired, so id say it fluctuates between 1 and 2. When i got it i could only hear it at nighttime, and it was 0 in the day and 2 at night.
