      OMG this is a tough one, usually these kind last for a few seconds but this is staying and has me worried.
      Just venting to those who know what it is like. Thank you all.

      my longest fleeting tinnitus was 1h30 minutes, i don"t experience deafness when these happen so it's no big deal.

      Prolonged severe spikes are really difficult to endure. I've had quite a few over the years but they always passed. I just want to give you some hope that your spike will come to an end too.

      Currently in the middle of my worst spike yet (going on 2 weeks now) so I feel you. I hope this goes down but it's hard to be optimistic about it, especially when it's making it hard to sleep or concentrate... Ugh.

      The spikes come often for me. I have found that they can perpetuate my "T" in its severest form if I allow it. Spikes tend to cause me to dwell on the noise EEEEEEEEEEEEE. The more I think about it, the more evident it is. If I don't get off my ass and do something to get out of my head, then it can become quite maddening. Thing is, I've learned that only I can control my "T"...............I cannot allow it to control me! It is not unlike anything else that is unpleasant in life that we must deal with. I just needed to develop coping skills that work for me. Maintaining a positive attitude in the face of adversity isn't easy, but if you can learn to do it, the payoff is a better life! Try it...................:puppykisses:
