      Does anyone have an idea why the tinnitus tone fluctuates? I just wish it was one stable tone but no, it oscillates, it's like eeeeEEeeEEeee, those EEs are at a higher frequency and sound louder and more shrill. It's pure torture.

      According to my ENT I have synapse damage due to noise exposure. I'm 7 months since onset. I suffered a sudden loss in hearing and tinnitus was born, hearing came back instantly and all hearing tests were normal. Other ENTs weren't able to explain why that happened.

      I'm trying to convince myself to accept this damn new reality but this oscillation is driving me crazy.

      With that what do you mean? Is it like you don't hear anything for a split second and then tinnitus came up?

      My tone was like that for about 12 months I think. Now it's a steady eeeee that is much easier to handle. I only get the eeEEeeEEE when I have a temporary spike, almost never

      My frequency didn't oscillate though, just the volume/"texture" of the sound

      I hope it becomes better for you too

      It was a split second reduction in hearing

      That's called fleeting tinnitus, I think... it's quite common.

      I used to experience fleeting tinnitus occasionally, no drop in hearing. This time was different and it happened after a noise trauma and after my ear was sore for two weeks.

      Tinnitus changes often due to several factors like blood blow, bad posture, the kind of food we eat, noise, etc

      Sometimes it's really hard to pin down the reason why it changes, although the origin may be clear (noise trauma). Even knowing the origin does not mean we can know which specific structure of our hearing is damaged.

      The sad thing is that after a while of having tinnitus you start settling for less and less. From wishing that it goes away completely to wishing that it just becomes constant.
