Hi, my tinnitus a year ago was at 48 dB, and now I am sure it is significantly louder than that, at around 4000 hz. I just wonder what kind of tinnitus levels people are getting on this forum, to give me an idea about what amounts of loudness it is possible to cope with. 2 months ago i had a ferocious tinnitus spike due to dental work noise, and it must have been at least 60 dB, although i did not actually measure it. it was just a horrible screaming screech, which now two months later has tamed down to probably around 52 - 54 dB I would guess. So does anyone have any measurement of what they have to cope with? thanks.
