      Chicken or the egg. I recall having T for the first time in 3rd grade. My teacher noticed me acting funny and she told me not to listen to the sound which then went away. I also tried marijuana for the first time back then but don't recall which came first. Now at 32, I stopped smoking for nearly 3 weeks now.

      Annually I stop smoking to lower my tolerance and to tell myself I'm not addicted. T has always been a minor thing up to a few days ago. First time ever its been a never ending feeling. Went to sleep with it yesterday and woke up with it. Napped a bit more and was fine. It starts like right before i plan to sleep. I step into my room and it starts ringing. 5 hours now. White noise isn't working anymore.

      Plan on cleaning my ears tomorrow. I maybe an insomniac but except no excuses in life and tell myself I'm just a night owl on a vampire schedule at times. Last few days i have been trying to sleep earlier though to switch my sleep cycle. I've done a good amount of reading the last few hours about T.

      Realize my mom has Meniere's disease. I ask her about it and She tells me her ears have been ringing for years, and "you just need to sleep before your brain damages from the T and you get stuck with it." Like she has.

      In the back of my mind I'm starting to think i have a legit reason to start smoking mmj again. I really dont like that.

      If smoking pot silenced my tinnitus I'd probably be high all the time. that said, if you're noticing it as a direct result of withdrawal from the drug, that is worrying and perhaps a reason to just chill out and see what happens over the next 4-6 weeks.

      Turns out you can get Meniere's from dirty or nasty pot, which then can give you T. Its rare but its possible. But T and pot for me is very helpful. Not in reducing the volume of T (actually makes it higher in pitch) but makes T more tolerable to hear. Its easier to channel it out. So I'd say try smoking and if it helps, stick with it.

      what does "dirty or nasty" mean, and what is your source for this information?

      Yeah. That sounds like horseshit. I've smoked for years and never heard of that.

      I can certainly believe that improperly flushed weed, or weed that's been sprayed with pesticides, is really bad for you and probably contributes in some small way to various cancers, but meneire's sounds like a stretch.

      This. I think I heard it first from a different thread on this forum. But Reg weed (brick weed) or bud thats been sprayed with things can lead to Menieres. It's rare (I personally smoke good and bad weed daily, illegal state. And never got it) but it's still possible in theory.

      I'm not aware of any theory or data linking pesticide consumption with meneire's... not saying it's impossible, but I am skeptical.
