      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Drugs barotrauma
      I have had this on and off in the past....a couple of hours here and there. Now it seems to be lasting for days at a time. It feels as though the ear is plugged as well,like I need to equalize the pressure.

      Does anyone find anything that helps besides reducing stress? I can't link it to stress, I am very stressed with tinnitus but even through relative calm moments, it just keeps fluttering around. I have noticed in the morning when I stretch, this seems to act as a trigger.

      Also...I have tried listening to soft music on headphone, this does not seem to help.

      Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thx

      @Telis do you still get the ear spasms? I been having them for 4 months magnesium has helped a little but I want a permanent cure any tips?

      mid seventies
      Mine was coming and going for a couple years before I figured it out. I almost thought I had it figured out at one point, I remember turning on one side or another as I laid in bed, and it would change. That led to the obvious - I was covering my ear. So I discovered that sounds, even the faint sound of the fridge running would trigger it. So I simply put cotton in my ear for a few days and it goes away, until something (usually too much sugar, of all things) brings it back. I discovered this about 10 years ago. And if it starts up tonight, I'll do the same thing, stick the cotton in. Instant relief. Works for me.

      Mine isn't brought on by noise it's mostly brought on by a burp or yawn even if I stretch. If I put my finger in my ear I cant feel it but once I take it out it comes back.

      Weird. Mine is made worse by burping yawning stretching too. And the finger in the ear helps quiet it but then come right back when you take the finger out.
      I tried the cotton last night. It worked better than foam earplugs but didn't get rid of it like IWLM did
