      High frequency hearing loss and lifetime noise exposure
      Depends on the car, my car runs about 70 to 75 db depending on speed and road surface. I will have a bit of a spike after a long highway trip but it's brief and no problem. Then again a hot rod with open pipes could be a problem.

      Not sure maybe to much noise
      If this was the case why should reparing it even help and why would you even have T if you have not hearing loss or hidden hearing loss :/?

      Myself I have quite bothersome tinnitus. Both my little as older brother got it. When I was discussing it Saturday, with my older brother, he mentioned "yes, I can tune in to it then I hear it. And then I forget about it again". His is quite high in tone and he can easily hear it over the tv. He doesn't even know when it started. It comforts me, because I hope that is what it will be in future, something in the background which I can tune into.

      My dad says exactly the same. What bugs me is that mine is one sided, so maybe it's more difficult to habituate rather than it "being inside my head".

      I understand your frustration, we place so much trust in the hands of doctors and in the end it is the patient that bears any consequences. And if you start to question a doctor they either get frustrated or angry. When it comes to Tinnitus I have had bad experiences with some doctors.

      It won't be a test inside the cochlear, rather a test somewhere within the brain.

      I imagine that there will be a way of seeing the tinnitus based on the perception of audio within the brain. Maybe we will be able to gauge the tinnitus by measured interference around perception of certain frequencies, maybe it will be linked to decreased alpha and increased gamma activity, I'm not sure...

      Whatever it is we need to move beyond very expensive machinery so that it can be a test able to be performed by most researchers. The tech has to be mainstream, which is difficult to achieve when you need highly accurate measurement. Maybe the Elon Musk Neuralink project could become that tech?

      Once we have this and we also have a consensus on the technique, we then have a way to demonstrate amelioration or reduction. That brings more players to the field, because it makes research less risky by taking away the solely human judgement of improvement we have now.

      Thank you for your post...

      But however, do any of these people who provide this conclusion have tinnitus themselves??

      Otherwise it cannot be concrete to me...

      All I hear is that it is symptom but docs treat your symptom that comes from tinnitus. So it's a symptom so in my book it is an illness.

      Medical people cannot fix what they consider a symptom, they only treat the symptoms from tinnitus. So in their minds they are helping you, not it is an illness in my book. They cannot even tell you if it is a brain or an inner ear problem.

      If they can take pictures of the planets then they can come up with better picture of the inside of the brain and then they can figure treatment. No matter how we got it's still coming from the same place in our heads.

      This put into words my exact feelings. Tinnitus is a hard fix and we have done fuck all research over the past decades and we're playing catch up. I get it. But if we're failing, we're failing. We can't just keep shifting the goalpost until we "win" by lowering our standards and pretending there's no problem. Saying things like "it will naturally improve" and "you will get used to it" is just deflecting the fact there's a problem because apparently just not doing anything is so much easier and straightforward.

      My traumatic noise induced tinnitus had gotten better. Probably by habitation though. I trained myself not to listen for it. I also stay away from loud noises, clubs, etc. T has given me a profound appreciation for my sense of hearing and I do everything now I can to protect it!!

      Loud concert
      Yeah, I'm not sure if I buy the meme that tinnitus gets better in due time anymore. Mine is as loud as it was the day I got it, but I don't pay attention to it as much, which can cause the delusion that it got better. So I guess you kinda habituate, but it only happens, because you finally start to forget what true silence sounded like. That's the harsh truth. It's like finally forgetting someone's voice once they have died.

      At this point I see any tinnitus questionnaires answered by sufferers as reliable as witness testimonies; they aren't as trustworthy as you think they are.

      Yes this is BS maybe improves for people who have mild tinnitus single tone unilateral not reactive and not hyperacusis.

      It's been over 2 years for me... No better. Still high pitched loud ringing, ear fullness and hyperacusis. Maybe it improves if you have mild tinnitus but this isn't my case so I disagree that it gets better!

      No change here either. I'm handling it better than at onset obviously, but the noise seems about the same.

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Syringing + Somatic tinnitus from dental work
      I had finally found something that helped with my first noise induced tinnitus at year three. I had nerve release tension therapy done in the same chair that I'm sitting in now. By year four, my tinnitus was less and it wasn't perception. I also applied brain involvement. Nerve tension fiber and cell therapy release is just having someone gently use their hands all over upper body for a hour a day, twice a day. It's not massage, it's just gently touching. It also can be done by self using something soft on a stick. This technique is sometimes used in hospice and for ones with central nervous or cell disease. This therapy could also benefit a spike.

      I will say that so far it has not helped with my newer physical tinnitus, but that because I don't use proper posture methods. To use proper posture methods all the time is difficult. Just one head down bend to a keyboard can slow process with neck tinnitus.

      Studies confirm Tinnitus is a hissing sound in the ear

      Studies confirm we need to breathe in order to live

      Studies confirm confirmations of some studies

      Tinnitus confirms the studies were right

      I firmly believe shitposting about Twin peaks is the most relevant thing on this thread at this point
