      Nope,funny enough my grandmother was talking about my uncles T to my mother and I payed no attention to what she was saying.Literally 1 minute later I thought my fridge was broken because I could hear a hiss coming from it.I left the room but could still hear the hissing,I covered my ears and that was the start of the nightmare.Just a major coincidence that my T started as we were talking about T.

      Yes I did. I don't think it woke me up, but I was aware of it right after I awoke. It was a very unpleasant morning as I began my crash internet course on T.

      No....developed as a very faint and infrequent hiss in one ear by day, and developed into a couple of jet engines in both ears 24/7 over the course of about a month.

      My journey into the underworld started with waking up one night to Pulsatile Tinnitus. I had never really thought such a thing could exist. Lasted 8 months then went away gradually. I had intermittent ordinary T but it never bothered me much until Feb 16 this year when it appeared during the night. Give me the PT any day.

      Tinnitus wakes me up at night. Its worse mornings evenings and afternoons. There wasn't a definite start to it just a realisation of a buzz that was always there sometimes so quiet almost inaudible sometimes so loud blocks out all other sounds. Started after ear infection last October/november . getting ears syrnged in a few weeks Dr thinks earwax is partly responsible. MRI showed nothing to worry about.
