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.
