      But do you guys ever feel something just shift in your head or ears right before you get a minute of that really loud spontaneous T that goes back to baseline after a minute or so? Cause it is like a physical sensation that I can feel and I'm just wondering if my brain is messed up or it's something everyone feels.

      Yes, it feels like a neuron misfire that stirs up the brains electrical chemistry.
      I get a buzz like feeling...but not the good kind.
      How you holding up @derpytia ?
      You had some worrysome posts a bit back. I've spent my life in music and audio production so my heart goes out to you. I hope your managing better in some way.

      I've had those moments too, really difficult to explain but there's definitely something happening. It's also worked quiet the opposite too, I remember getting a sensation about a month or so into having my T, like something like 'pulled' the right side of my brain & just like that my T was gone completely & my hearing & balance was back to normal, just as quick as it came it when however :(

      My ear in which I am about to get the fleeting T gets blocked just before that 10 second T starts. The pressure is slowly released and the T goes back to the baseline. All this lasts for about 10-15 seconds. So yes, we are fucked up

      Yeah I feel a sensation in the head when I get fleeting tinnitus for a minute or so, sometimes my hearing in both ears dips temporarily and get super loud T that makes my head sometimes feel like its vibrating, I'm in awe the brain could make such a noise sometimes! Glad its only temporary!

      Its not anxiety. LOL
      It happens with most people with T. Its common between most of us regardless of our causes of T. Its called fleeting or spontaneous T. Its less frequent and less intense now after 10 months since the onset and usually improves overtime. No way to tell if its a good thing or bad and no doc has any clue about it.

      Although I'm not sure if I have tinnitus or not, as I have not yet received a diagnosis, I tried one tablet of Equate dimenhydrinate (Walmart's generic gravol) and it lessened my symptoms by about 20%. I'd be interested to know if someone else could replicate my results. You can also use dimenhydrinate as an OTC sleeping aid and anti-nauseant, so you won't be wasting money if you want to re-purpose it if it doesn't work. I think it might be because it's calming my nerves.
