      Does your tinnitus increase when you focus on your breath and do breathing exercises in a quiet place or at your desk (not a silent room, but relatively quiet).

      What is the cause of your tinnitus?

      I notice it more when I meditate. So I don't anymore.

      I've noticed it more when I meditate. For me, I always try to meditate in as much silence as possible, so that in and of itself is a problem.

      I've been making it a point to try have some constant sound or white noise going in the background. Its been less of a distraction, but I've been definitely meditating less frequently.

      I've also been using some apps that have guided meditations you listen to, you may want to try that!

      Do you just notice it more or do you hear your tinnitus gradually get more intense and increase?

      For me personally, it is mostly me noticing it more. But there are times where it feels like it is actually increasing and getting louder.

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      possible TMJ, came on after severe cold and chest infection,
      I wouldn’t say it increases but I zone into it a lot more, like I really hear it in surround sound with extra base if that makes sense??

      With no objective way to measure, it's hard to tell the difference between actually louder and noticing the same level of loudness more. So I am not sure.

      I have noticed that I hear certain sounds less, such as a fan or laptop noise.
