      Hi all. Tinnitus has been with me since early 2012 and on and off since then I have had periods of exacerbated ringing in my left hear followed by the habituation period and the cycle then repeats. Currently as we speak I'm up at 2.30 am with intense ringing due to starting new meds (to help with my acute bronchitis at the moment ).

      Taffy,

      I'm so sorry you're experiencing a spike in the middle of the night! Yes, it could very well be due to the meds you're currently taking. Did you check online to be sure they are not ototoxic?

      I hope it calms down for you soon.

      Hugs,
      Karen
