      The reason i ask this many researchers beleive noise exposure is necessary but not sufficient for T to occur....stress is required apart from noise exposure.

      Army veterans are the group with highest risk as they are subjected to both.

      Please submit the poll as I am keen in knowing cause.

      Lol, it's not because there are many anxious people here that T is only caused by anxiety or stress. I never had anxiety in my life, am not prone at all to stress but still have T.

      I guess for some people stress might change something in their brain causing T (if there is hearing loss), but that doesn't apply to everyone with T.

      People have been in bed sleeping in total silence only to wake up to moderate tinnitus in the middle of the night. Stress might be the tipping point where you notice T because the sound is no longer being actively filtered by the brain (TRN) in the video. Hence why T comes out of nowhere for lots of people instead of gradually increasing. Stress causing it would be a stretch and how are people going to avoid stress for the rest of their life?

      Our eyes see floaters, our nose, and the blind spot but the brain actively filters it out so we don't notice. Hearing probably uses the same kind of mechanism. My opinion from the video is that almost everyone who doesn't hear tinnitus has some form of tinnitus but our brain filters it out. If the tinnitus gets too big then the filtering system no longer works and it's immediately seen as a regular sound. The filtering system still works though but can fail and let in another tone if that tone gets too strong or it just decides to let it through.

      I wonder what would happen if there was some way to kill brain cells in the problem region (not receiving sound from ears) and kill that section. Would it fix T? I guess so but you'd also lose hearing in that Hz. Another solution could be to make a wall by killing brain cells between the problem sections so they don't leak to the region causing the tinnitus.

      I was not stressed at the time. I went from zero tinnitus to loud tinnitus over night and then I was very stressed.

      I always believed that noise exposure effect on people depends on the person's stress level at the time of exposure, that non-stressed people could get away with it. This theory resembles with the theory of Dirk Hamer and his coined DHS (Dirk Hamer Syndrome)
      http://www.newmedicineonline.com/dhs-dirk-hamer-syndrome or many other links
      My T too is in sync with stress. If I get stressed in 5 seconds after those 5 seconds I notice that my T went through the roof.
      When i was exposed to the acoustic traumas I was not only stressed but also very depressed.

      @Alue
      Overnight is defined as something that extends from evening until morning, or something that happens very quickly.
      What do you mean by over night?
      Right afterwards or you woke up with T the following day?
