      My tinnitus is muche better after sleep, the better the sleep the lower the tinnitus. Does this mean a muslce issue or it happens with all kinds of tinnitus?

      too full a life
      my T is better always during sleep. :)

      So many questions we each have about this. Ironically, all the questions we have to narrow down any discernible trends have no basis in improving our T. There are way more questions than answers with this. Trends that come and go....ok, you have identified one or two....now what? We still have T. :sleep:

      Yes, always worst at the end of the day before bed. The more tired the most exhausted,

      agreed...seems to come on more at night...laying down seems to kick it into overdrive...then once i konk out i wake up and it is usually better. Wish this was a sign we were getting better.

      Yes, the same for me. Sleep often puts my T to sleep. Starts acting up 1-3 hours after I wake up.

      It is very apparent that nobody really knows of a solution for Tinnitus suffers. Somehow, from reading a lot of the comments posted, here it would appear that there is a link between sleep and waking hours. Most people state that their Tinnitus is better when waking up but soon re-appears later in the morning or during the day. This is my experience as well and as I'm writing (10h30) it is screaming in my ears (or is it in my head) which will last all day until tomorrow morning. My age is 73 and I have suffered since approximately 1985 and can give no reason why it should affect me. After reading about the work being done by Professor Hamann (at Leicester University) with Magnesium I went to my local Pharmacy to request some Magnesium supplements and was offered Slow-Mag which contains 535 mg Magnesium Chloride (equivalent to 64 mg elemental magnesium) - Preventative dose 2 to 4 tablets daily or Therapeutic dose 2 to 6 tablets daily both in divided doses. I have been taking Slow-Mag at the advice of my Cardiologist since my first heart attack in 2007 but Tinnitus persists as bad as ever. So where to from here - you can't stay in bed all day?:sick:

      I think there's a strong link between fatigue and tinnitus. Just search for "tinnitus worse when tired", it's an extremely common experience. Unfortunately I haven't seen any plausible explanations for the phenomenon.

      However if you know your T has this trait, then when you hear it scream super loud in the evening, you can tell yourself that you're just tired and this will get better very soon. In my experience, that helps :)
