      Tinnitus Since:
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Acoustic Trauma/Vascular
      So, my ears have been whack because of extreme muscle tension in my neck, back, everywhere.
      Anyway, so I was trying to test my pulse in my carotid artery, looking for signs of elevated heart rate. I pressed down just a bit on my right C.A. , and had a major reaction. Huge T spike, both pulsatile and eeeeeeee in my right ear, followed by cold feeling in ear, and (temporary) hearing loss. Also, my vision got a bit sparkly.
      It imitated in exactly every way my typical 'attacks' in my ears.

      So, this seems to be vascular, no? The muscles surrounding my C.A.'s, at least, are extremely tight right now. Any thoughts on what this points to?

      too full a life
      Moving forward, take your pulse at your wrist CH.;)
      We have no answers. Many triggers for T spikes...from sound to touch and pressure to sleep to noise to..everything seems to affect it. We need a knob aka volume control installed our body so we can turn the god damn spikes down.
      We all are waiting for this.
      I known you have synergy between your different senses...perhaps a much greater sensitivity and linkage than others.
      We all are joined in wishing you peace until you get your health better sorted out.
