      I just want to get clear on the terminology of a spike. I've had various sounds in both ears since my T started which I got used to. However, now a new, loud, high pitch sound has started, for apparently no reason, I just woke up with it one morning. Is it a spike? Or has it changed forever? I know spikes can last a few weeks, so I just want to know if people think it's a spike or permanent change. If any of you have experienced spikes or gotten over spikes, I'd love to hear from you, because I'm feeling a bit down lately and I'd love to hear some kind words. Thanks guys, stay awesome. :)

      Spikes can be new tones or louder tinnitus. Did it go away yet?

      Apparently the ear with the new sound is packed up with wax? I've been given ear drops and I think they'll be getting syringed this week. Do you guys think this will help?
