On "Good" Tinnitus Days Do You "Feel" Your Tinnitus Even If You Don't Register a Tone?

      Have had some "quieter" days so far...

      Sometimes if the masking noise is just right when out about in the world, I don't quite hear the ringing as much but my ears just feel "on" for lack of a better word. Slightly painful. Can't distinguish a tone per se, just that "on" feeling.

      Anybody?

      Wish I could describe the "on" feeling better. It's essentially like you can feel it ringing but you don't register a tone per se. Not quite air either.

      On bad days, I would describe my tinnitus as being heard as louder than other sounds. On the good days, the tinnitus is really quiet, but if I am in a quiet spot, I can still hear the tone, and of course still hear it when I have my earplugs in to protect from noise exposure.

      I completely get you. On my "good" tinnitus days my ears feel in a way lighter and sometimes my ears feel almost normal with the exception of a slight feeling of fullness in my inner ear where I would normally feel my tinnitus pulsating. However, I don't know whether to put that slight feeling of fullness down to my hyperacusis. On my "bad" days I struggle to hear anyone else speaking along with the pain that accompanies it, so when I do get my "good" days it's almost like my ears are "normal", I can't hear ringing or pulsating noises unless I purposefully sit in a quiet room and try to listen to it.

      It's like my ear never feels empty. Like there's a fog of steam just hovering within it even if I don't hear my tone - it never feels bare.

      On my "good" days I still have the Tinnitus Orchestra in my head wherever I go...

      But usually by the end of the day the high tones kind of crystallise into a steady, predictable ringing, rather than the dentist's drill of the bad days.

      I still have my wind chimes in the other ear, and the diesel truck parked outside though...

      Man, I had a very good day yesterday, considering...

      Slept bad, and sure enough, it sucks today.

      Feels good to have others share the experience in some way..... Of course nobody in my real life quite gets it.

      You are so lucky. My tinnitus is 4 times the volume of anything else all the time. And so high pitched. I'd love to mask it with anything even for an hour a day!

      I am fortunate for sure. This took a lot of work to reach this point, including vigilant noise protection, daily omega 3, green tea, sleeping with earplugs, and lately aloe vera. Despite all of this, I certainly still get some bad days along the way as well, so I still have a pretty good idea what the others are feeling.

      It's weird, sometimes i can "feel" my t sort of like some kind of "aura" or vibration emanating from the center of my head. I can't hear it, i can only sense it like how one senses a thunderstorm coming. This is only on bad days though, and I would feel my ears being stuffy or something.

      Yes. I completely get you. And this doesn't happen straight after I wake up. The loud ringing/tone will always be there, but once there is enough masking out and about and I am kind of busy, the ringing doesn't register but my ears still "feel" it somehow. And it doesn't last all day though. If I think about it, or get home, I would register the ringing. But on most days, I can "hear" my tinnitus. I just wish if I could get those "quieter" days more I could cope :(

      @Rb86 - do you also get it like this? And how often?

      A good day is when I feel happy instead of depressed or anxious. On those days I can better concentrate on other sounds. The T goes a bit in the background but I know it's still there. Because of the good feeling I eventually take a listen to see if the T has gotten a bit quieter.

      And boom... back in full effect. Felling depressed again. It's this vicious circle thing.

      Now, the answer is no. I have had days now with tinnitus gone at times and I couldn't "feel" it either.
