      I posted about a week ago, and a lot has changed. My T is really frustrating. Let me try to explain.
      I've had it now for 28 days. It never stays the same. Most mornings, I really can't hear the ear noise.

      I've noticed that it gets worse at night. It's pretty quiet in the mornings.

      My T is only in one ear, my right ear. It started in the right ear only.

      I've been experimenting with Gingko Biloba. Last night, my ear was making so much noise, I got up and took one Gingko Biloba. I couldn't believe it, but it stopped the ringing totally! It lasted 2 whole days, and returned. But I'm glad to know it does stop it.

      Right now, I'm in bed, trying to watch the TV, but I just can't focus.

      This is a terrible condition to have!

      Does anyone else only have the ringing in only one ear?

      Most of my tinnitus is in my left ear though the right ear gets in the game once in a while.
      Pretty common what you wrote OP...though some like me have the loudest T when they wake up in the morning which can but doesn't always diminish during the day. Ambient noise level matters a lot.
      Not a whole lot of rhyme or reason....many have variation to their T including me but some have extreme shifts like Michael from silence to severe T which is quite unusual.

      Probably sound, though never proven
      Left ear exclusively. Sometimes it seems to extend to a sort of central position, but there is always this solid, spurting hiss right next to my Left ear. It never appears to the Right in the same way.

      Unidentified's a roller coaster. You will slowly get to know your T better. Mine is unpredictable but it manifests itself in certain ways, which I am now familiar with. What is the name of the ginko you used, how much? Had it stopped before?

      Yes, but I don't hear out of the other one. Not sure if that counts.
