    1. I use to have fleeting Ts maybe 3-4 times/week. I don´t worry about them, they use to last for maybe 30-60 seconds and fade away. This morning i had one very long one, took more than an hour for it to fade, scary one. Anyone else experience these long ones?

      Yeah, quite often actually. It starts like regular fleeting T, loud at first then it fades. But it never fades away completely, it lingers for some time. Sometimes several hours.

    3. Thanks @Lapidus(y), this was exactly what happened. The sharp tone stayed for an hour or more, but faded slowly. I was on the floor with my little boy and had my neck in a very uncomfortable position when it struck. Strange things this.

      I've noticed similar things from waking up with my neck in a weird position. I'm not sure what that means, but if I had to guess, your uncomfortable neck is related.

      Yes! Had exactly the same thing the other week. Hearing went dull in my right (good) ear and this shrieking T hung around and only faded very slowly. Took about 90 mins to go. Bloody scary.
       
    6. I noticed when i do much cardio, like hard biking 6-7 times/week i don´t get them at all. Thinking of if it´s related to bloodflow in some way or another, don´t think it´s anxiety related in my case:unsure:
       
    7. @linearb ,The neck is for sure involved in som way, but i can´t say i am having problems with it. A little stiff from time to time but what T person is not:nailbiting:

      Mine started after a car journey with the window open.. think it must have been the cool wind on my neck or in my ear.

      Yes, I get that too. Your ear suddenly feels really full, a bit deafened and the tinnitus is obscenely loud. Usually lasts a minute or so but sometimes fades gradually leaving behind a residual ring that can last a few hours. Best to not panic.
       
    11. Thanks guys, had a new one @4 o clock this morning, faded but still audible 9 hours later when i am in silence. Should i worry about this? The pure tone is there among my usual hisssssssing(n)

      This is not unusual for me. My experince is that the new tone can linger on (in a low volume) for the whole day but if I don't give it any attention and go to sleep it's usually gone when I wake up. I think sleep can work to "reboot" the brain. Try not to think about it (easier said than done, I know).

    13. The tone is still present, at the same volume as yesterday:nailbiting:. I better prepare to adjust to this one long term(n). At least it´s a pure and clear tone:dunno:. I was doing pretty ok not great but still ok with my old hssssssss T.
      Kind of funny, one of my biggest fears since i got T is that a fleeting T should stay, and here i am.

      I'm big on doing yoga every morning -- especially cat/cow and sphinx/baby cobra. Nothing magical about it, but does seem to help ease my neck, which it needs, because I'm a typical software engineer with typically shitty posture.

      Using a standing desk helps, too.
       
    15. Thanks, i trade sports (,basketball and tennis) live for my living. I use a standing desk some hours of the day and it´s great. I have started practising some yoga and mindfulness for relaxation but it´s very hard in the beginning

      Lots of nerves and arteries etc run thru the neck. Could be nerves pinched or even restricted blood flow to the brain or ear or both. I've found neck and head massages help my T and bouncing vision when it's really bad.
