      Tinnitus Since:
      .. I noticed it reduces when I walk and/or exercise. At times, it's completely gone when I do this. Most if not all of my tinnitus happens when I am sitting down. If I stand, it's almost gone away. This leads me to believe a neck or back issue may be a root cause of this, so I am going to continue with a good routine to exercise these areas and build some strength. Will report back in 2 months with hopefully a good success story!

      Yes, please report back.
      Interesting effects you have with exercise. I hope your not kidding yourself thinking its gone and really its still there.
      Anyway, that's great that it helps. I wish I knew the exact cause of mine. Hearing nerve loss is up on the list I suppose.

      Maybe you just dont pay attention. I feel better when I exercise. It keeps me busy. I hear more usually at home as it is more quiet there. Sometimes I feel like there is a knob that just need to be turned down.

      I agree with you, bwspot. When I exercise, I'm distracted and I feel better. It's at home, when things are quiet, that the ringing/pulsating seems the loudest. The key to keeping our tinnitus low seems to be distraction, doesn't it?

      Before I habitated my tinnitus, I felt it got worse when I exercised. I think it's very different for people. Some hear it more during certain situations.

      I still think the key is to get distracted enough to not pay attention to it, like treating it as a fan or a refrigerator.
      When I'm pumping weights, I get a satisfactions of it enough to consider that any extra sound or whoosh I hear
      in my ears is good because I've trained my body very hard.
