      Tinnitus Since:
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Had tinnitus for a decade from running footraces with blasting headphones to keep me motivated. That’s my theory anyway. But woke up two weeks ago with ringing 10 times worse. Tipping my head to left introduces another different high pitched tone. Clenching teeth makes it worse. It’s the worst in the morning, I adapt by noon.
      Xanex calms the noise and my nerves. But I’m trying to tough it out as benzo addition Could result.
      Now started taking zinc and KB which is not likely to change anything. MRI scheduled on the 12th. I increased exercise as well.
      Will advice the results. I have researched this to death.

      Welcome to the forum. It seems from your description above that your T or spike is somatic in nature. There may be a cause for the spike to get as bad, perhaps TMJ or neck muscle issue. Hope you can get a specialist to check this out. Hope your spike will settle down soon. Take care. God bless.
