Just curious, so I thought I'd do a poll
Goooood Question. haven't tried yet out of fear but it's on my list of things to do, I didn't realize until I stopped what a useful social tool alcohol is.
In my case with beer I had both results: some times drinking beer greatly reduced the T and other times drinking beer aggravated the tinnitus. I think it has to do with the quantity.
I tried with wine. Made me feel better re my T related depression.
One time I drank a whole bottle of Irish whiskey cream all by myself, I fell into a deep sleep right away and when I woke up my T was gone. It returned after a while. I tried to repeat the miracle, but it didn't work for a second time, for some yet to be understood reason.
So in my case I had all the three results: worsening, improvement, disappearance for a while.
I have to research the matter in the future for scientific purposes only (yeah, right).
No effect on my T........not even red wine which in the early days I was told was a big no no. However alcohol does effect the quality of my sleep, I tend to wake in the early hours and can't get back to sleep. The lack of sleep then impacts on my resilience and ability to cope with my T the next day. Likewise but to a much greater extent if I over indulge and have a hangover. Like many situations around T for me it's a question of balance, I don't want to deprived myself of the things I enjoy but I have to bear in mind what the consequences of that enjoyment might be. So yes I do drink but not to excess.
I drink when I want and say screw it! There are so many restrictions with T, you just have to let go once in awhile and enjoy what you can.
My T gets much lower when I drink beer. I feel even better in regards to my T the next morning after drinking the night before. Unfortunately, I became dependant on drinking all the time just to settle my T and anxiety,which basically I became an alcoholic. I cant win lol
Mine seems to rage when I drink beer! Very clearly worse.
And so many cases on this forum are helped by the beer...
That just shows how different we are. We all hear the sound without external cause named "tinnitus", but what happens in our heads is so different from one case to another.
For me it gets better until i sober up, but i don't recommend it
mien is horrible the next day after I drink even one can of beer
Alcohol often reduces my T (reactive, multiple noises) to one single eeeee noise. But other times it has absolutely no effect or makes it just worse. It's a gamble.
Alcohol in moderate doses does not have any effect on my T. I usually have a glas or two of red wine at dinner, helps to relax after a long day.
Did not yet get hammered since i got T and frankly i do not intend to.
I enjoy a drink but even more so with this tinnitus giving me torture 24/7 . Lowers my tinnitus in the evenings. This is my way of getting some relief.
A few drinks helps me put T in the background more, and care about it less. It makes my T feel like it does on my best days of habituation. The next day, the opposite can occur. Anxiety due to hangover can make the T seem worse. Red wine in particular can make my T scream a bit in the middle of the night, and wake me to hear it. That's what it sounds like at that time.
When I have alcohol my tinnitus compleatly goes , till next morning
This poll ought to have "I don't drink" option.
I don't see why. The poll is about the effect of alcohol on t
I see your point. I would include that option for the sake of completeness.
A Side effect but significantly reduces my T
A bit of all them except it going away, never had that happen. Beer helps me, I don't tune into my T and just listen to it as much.
