      Tinnitus Since:
      Its been 5-6 months now. I am used to my tinnitus, but on 1/25 something terrible happened.

      In my dream I yelled "EEEEEE" for some reason and in turn this is what I did to wake up. I was lying on my tinnitus ear and the yell caused my tinnitus to go crazy. I'm worried that it has now changed permanently in volume.

      Ben, I don't think an incident like that can change your tinnitus for good. Maybe you have just a "bad ear day" for whatever reason and now you start to focus on it more? I also tend to have days when the ringing is louder, but many times there is no explanation for it. Try not to worry about it too much.

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Loud concert
      I am probably not in position to give you any sound advice (being just two months into T myself).
      But I would also tell you to try and not worry. Something like that happened to me once, and turned to be nothing. Perceived louder volume is in most cases just your brain paying more attention to the tinnitus, due to anxiety or whatever other reason.

      Keep strong. We'll all make it.
