      I haven't found any member's cause is the same as mine, direct trauma to the ear, and my T became so special, I need some observation from other members, I have some strange findings:

      1. My tinnitus tone will change from a white noise like one to a tonal after listen to white noise for 1 minute, then the T will change back to white noise like after several minutes later.

      2. My tinnitus will be lower after exposure to a loud environment, last October, when I got a 9 hours flight without ear plugs, the T lowered a lot after I back home that day and even the days afterwards. Last week I have a dinner with 10 friends in a very loud restaurants for about 4 hours, and then the T changed to a low level after I back home.

      3. My tinnitus will change a lot, both tone and volumn, when I use my hand to muffle the ear and use my fingers to knock the cranium, this is a kind of massage method I learnt from a forum, but my dad who also got T said that it will not change his T in any aspect.

      Could anyone find any clue about all these? I have asked different doctors about these, but nobody could explain even one for me, so maybe it is just like this, but hope somebody could explain especially the white noise issue, since I think maybe I could cope with my T by special sound therapy.

      Thanks a lot!

      1. The T at my left ear never change but my right ear which sounds like a random beeping ringing which is a lot more annoying than constant ringing will change to constant low ringing and sometimes disappear after listening to white noise.

      2. Happened to me too. My guess is that it is something to do with tonotopic reorganization. You can read more about it here, https://www.tinnitustalk.com/threads/tinnitus-and-tonotopic-reorganization.1923/

      3. This is the ancient chinese method to treat tinnitus and has many health benefits. I read that quite a number of people has their T reduced with this method. I think i should really start doing this now...

      Thanks a lot, then I know it is not that special:). But actually, my T sound totally changed during the past 1.5 years, the first onset is pure tonal high pitch, then louder high pitch, then after MRI, high pitch tonal with white noise one, and now, it is totally white noise like, no high pitch at all, it is so odd.

      At first, the high pitch is very intrusive at home and office, but totally masked by the environmental noise when I get out. Now, the T is not as intrusive as before since the high pitch disappear, but the new white noise like one could be heard even on the bus....

      Experts said white noise is good for sleeping even for people without T. So you have just save some $ for a white noise generator ;)
