      I got my tinnitus last year at January 15th. I've had it on and off, same with the "reactive tinnitus". I habituated to both and if you asked me two days ago I would say I'm 90% habituated and living exactly the way I did before I got tinnitus. That is until yesterday evening when I sat up late and watched tv series. Out of the blue I got this weird hissing sound that keeps going up and down as a roller coaster, and I still have it.

      It's kinda like this:

      eeeeEEEEEeeeeeeEEEEEeeeeeEEEEeee

      I can recall having this once some months ago when I was going to sleep, but that went away some minutes/hours later, cant exactly remember.

      Where did this come from? I haven't done anything I'm not supposed to do, literally. And I was feeling SO well, I would almost go so far and call me "cured".

      One hypothesis : more neurons are activated/bursting creating this new sound.

      Tinnitus is a condition that has an never ending changing effect on brain plasticity as seen in FMRI scans.

      Hey -- I have a similar situation. I was pretty much habituated in September, and then late September I had like, 2 new sounds that really sent me on a downward spiral. I have the exact same eeEEEEeeeEEEEeeeeEEE that you describe -- sometimes it stops abruptly for like, .5 seconds, and then starts again. But it's like a teapot whistle or radiator, going up and down and up and down constantly. This one is the one that drives me crazy - -I can't mask it. Oh how I'd give anything to just have the original static hiss that I used to have. I think mine is caused primarily by muscles and TMJD, I have perfect hearing. Did yours ever dissipate? It's been almost 3 months now for me with this new eEEeeeEEe.

      This sounds familiar. I had pretty much habituated to my hissing and high pitched sound when last year new sounds developed and it acts like you say; eeeeEEEEeeeeeEEeeeeEEeeeee Almost impossible to not lose it mentally.
      I find it strange that more and more people seem to experience worsening with the same kind of sound and no obvious reason... is there a global epidemic going on? :nailbiting:

      Where are you located @historicalagency?

      @Makrohn Yep, pretty much same exact thing that happened to me :'(

      I am in Canada at the moment. You? Have you found any medical help at all? I'm kind of thinking it's muscle/TMJ related but no doctors have been able to help at all, really.

      Ok, so all three of us are on the northern part of the planet. Just an interesting observation...
      I have not found any help so far... Checked my ears two times, done 3 audiograms and nothing.

      It could be muscular, but so far I have not felt the need of checking it up.
      Sucks to be so lost in all of this :/

      So there are 3 of us experiencing this. It's really strange. I haven't done anything that would worsen my T, and I went from a mild T to a more high pitched one that is difficult to mask. Funny thing is I remember before I got this setback how I thought to myself "1 year with T and im actually feeling really really good". Then BOOM!
