      Cement factory noise lowT,then stress high T
      If I have a good long sleep, then when I wake up at any time 3.30, 6.00. or any other time , often my T is low hardly noticeable. If I get up then it stays quiet all day long. If I try to get even an extra 5 minutes sleep, it starts ringing again.Same thing happens if I take a five minute nap in the afternoon.Very peculiar situation.

      So this is my solution. As soon as I wake up,I do not spent anymore time in bed.I get up, and then I have a great day. I succeeded in doing it for 3 days continuously,on the fourth day I woke up 2 am and I could not possibly get up so early.

      So the answer might be to find a way to sleep continually for 6 hours or more.And that should keep the T away.

      I hope this will help some people.

      This is just my idea I may be wrong but I think the T does not wake you up. If you wake up after less than 2 hours sleep which is non REM sleep your T starts up .If you wake up after more than 2 hours sleep which is REM sleep your T should not start up.I have read that somewhere but as I said I may be wrong.

      Funny you wrote that. I actually slept like 7 hours last night (it was a-ma-zing). I use masking sounds to do it, but I didn't wake up at all. There may be something there...

      That is a very important observation!!!! Geting out of bed when T is low.!!!! I will start doing that today, now, 6am.
      Also, as you mentioned, most of the time, if I take a afternoon nap, the the goes from low to very high. Same happens with red wine sometimes, and with worying thoughts. Sometimes with taking a weekend off and going somewere it also goes way down.
      If I have trouble sleeping (often), I take a low dose of melatonin(very safe) It's important to find the dose for you. To do this you start with a low dose (3mg) and see if that works, if not you go up to 5 or 6mg. If you wake up grogy you go down on dosage. When i'm on vacation I usualy never have trouble sleeping, so maybe I need more vacation time.

      Melatonin can ease sleep problems caused by shift work or jet lag. But overall, people taking the drugs fall asleep only 7 minutes faster and sleep 8 minutes longer on average, according to a 2013 analysis in the journal PLoS One.
      I have seen this on consumers.org I do not know if it is correct

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      possibly noise or unknown
      I honestly can't relate to tinnitus causing sleep problems. At first I was afraid I wouldn't be able to sleep, so I tried masking it with a fan or masking noise. They ended up disturbing my sleep, and I made a point of depriving myself of sleep til I was sure the exhaustion would let me fall asleep. Eventually I remembered that I never fell asleep easy and always felt restless unless I was actually tired, so nothing had really changed. I'm not sure why a noise that is constant would disturb someone more than a noise that would mask it.

      It is actually the other way around.It is not actually T that keeps you awake.it is the short sleeps that turn on the Tinnitus.This is from personal experience

      Thanks @Tony Phylactou , I have multiple tones so feel like not much will help, but will give this a go and report back. I usually lie in bed and put the pillow over my head trying to go back to sleep because of the "morning fears" of another day with T. Will try to get up straight away.

      Tinnitus is switched off the moment you fall asleep.It will not wake you up and if you have a dream it will be a silent dream.If you wake up for any reason within 2 hours,it will be switched on again.If you wake up after a sleep longer than 2 hours it will stay off.But if you go back to sleep again for less than 2 hours,even for 5 minutes and you wake up, it will again be switched on.
      The explanation is that sleep up to 2 hours is non REM sleep,and sleep longer than 2 hours is REM sleep.

      I think I made a new discovery now,but it needs to be confirmed.
      Having a short sleep or a nap
      a If T is low it will raise it.
      b If T is high it will lower it
      If you do not sleep at all it will remain as it is either high or low.
      But bearing in mind that there are different types of T it may not work for everybody.

      In Science based support G Dore Adore writes
      Dorre Adorre My tinnitus is controlled by sleep, but not in the same way. It's related to muscle tension. REM sleep paralyses the muscles and I suspect Tony Phylactou has relaxed muscles after waking out of REM sleep.
      I don't. Most types of sleep (even 5 mins) cause the muscles that cause my T to become tense, and I have to try very hard to stretch and relax them before getting up in the morning. If I succeed, I'm usually T-free for the day. However, I succeed only about half the time. Some research shows significant benefits of muscle relaxants, but I've never been able to get hold of them!

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Loss of hearing and then stress and anxiety
      I have noticed a big connection between my sleep patterns and my T as well. You are on to something here. I'm pretty sure it has also been documented in several articles I have read. Everyone that experiences lack of sleep the first few months also experiences loud T. Its only once you get your sleep under control again and your anxiety in check that the T gets softer.
      If I attempt to fall asleep and I do not fall asleep it triggers my T as well. It could be in the morning, or for a nap, etc etc. There is a strong connection between the attempt to fall asleep and T in my life as well.
      My T is softest when I stick to a sleep schedule and get my 8 hours of sleep, don't stress over anything, don't get emotional over anything, etc etc.

      Melatonin also has studies linked to lower T, and sleep is a factor there as well.
