      Hi Folks,

      My tinnitus is 100% noise induced, mostly due to firearms and lots of noisy music.

      These days I am unemployed due to COVID-19 so I sleep when I want and how long I want.

      I found out that whenever I oversleep, like 10 hours per day, my tinnitus goes to such low levels that it is barely there, and stays that way for the whole day. Never had this happen to me since I got it.

      We know well that a lack of sleep makes the tinnitus much louder, but I also found out that on the other end, too much sleep can make tinnitus far quieter than what I can get out of a normal 8 hours time. This seems to refresh the brain.

      I don't use Benzos or anything else.

      For example I sleep a good 8 hours then take a nap in the afternoon for 2 hours.
      Some ways I use to force myself sleepy - delay food intake for several hours such as in the intermittent fasting method, until I feel very hungry and my stomach makes loud sounds... I then eat a light meal with moderate carbs and low GI.

      Brain needs some carbs to work and overcome the tinnitus so the Keto diet does not work well here, but you don't want to spike your blood sugar either.

      This makes me feel sleepy right away.

      10 hours is a bit of a waste of time and may even be unhealthy in the long run, but if your tinnitus drives you mad or depressed, it is worth a try, natural and free of charge. I really enjoy my days with very low tinnitus.
