      One thing I have noticed a few times now is that, after having a conversation with someone, my tinnitus seems to subside. I first noticed it after a two hour flight during which I was talking (and listening) during most of the trip.

      Something triggered a small spike the last couple of days, and I noticed that, after talking to someone for 20 minutes or so, it seems to have subsided.

      I don't know if it's the talking part or the listening part that's key, but there is a pattern here. like singing, and I'm thinking I should start singing solo more and see if that helps. I have to listen to some audio books also, and see if that helps. Tinnitus is such a strange beast.

      Yeah I don’t notice mine as much when I’m talking to people. I think it’s because your brain is trying to focus on different words and pitches which distracts you.
