      Hi guys,

      Just wanted to give you all an update. I saw an ENT last Friday, he looked over my ears and removed some wax in my left ear and gave me a device to equalize the pressure in my ears since they were a little retracted. The pain in my ears has mostly gone away and even my tinnitus went down a lot almost to the point of complete silence!

      However last night before I went to bed the volume kicked up a notch almost to the point it was before my doctor visit. I have noticed that it seems like when I lie down the volume of T goes up, anyone else have a similar issue?

      Also the doctor was a jackass frankly not very sympathetic to my T basically shrugging it off saying most people's T goes away in six months to a year which I highly fricken doubt.

      However the silver lining is that the volume for a while was reduced and it hadn't happened before. All I can hope is this is a sign that it will go away permanently within this mythical year.

      Yes, I notice this all the time. I believe it's due to increased blood pressure in the head when we lie down. Stand up and blood immediately moves away from the head. As to why this spikes the tinnitus, I don't have the answer. But I think most of us notice this.

      I think this is not a spike. It sounds like another case of somatic T, because changing position ( I don't know the right scientific description ) could lead to an increase ( or decrease ) of the tone.
