      Cause of Tinnitus:
      my T has been low or almost gone for the past weeks. this morning woke up and realised the window is open only slightly by maybe 5 inch. the room has 2 adults including me and 2 kids.

      my T upon waking up is slightly higher and was worried if it is because lack of oxygen in the room that have MAYBE weaken my inner hair cells and thus cause this spike?

      Anyone can enlighten me?

      Interesting question. I'm not a medical doctor, but what you're referring to is called hypoxia, a general lack of adequate oxygen supply. Unless your fingernails, lips or skin are getting a blue or purplish tinge, I think your oxygen supply is fine.

      However, hypoxia can lead to hearing loss. This is an excerpt from a Science Direct article: "Though the hypoxia did not cause hearing loss and hair cell loss, the combined exposure to noise and hypoxic air caused more hearing loss and hair cell loss than the noise alone. The NIHL potentiation by hypoxia appeared to increase linearly with the hypoxia level. 10% O2 exposure significantly potentiated NIHL and 18% O2 exposure also showed an evident NIHL potentiation. This suggests that people suffering from hypoxia may have increased risk to noise trauma."

      You're worrying to much... Lack Of oxygen cause tiredness, increase of the heart rythm... You would have feel it if it was a lack of oxygen.

      Maybe your room was a closed for too much time but i seriously doubt it has an effect on your T.
