      Do you have tinnitus when you dream? I don't. Does this mean it's possible somehow to suppress it if you train your mind?

      I have read stuff by kevin hogan where he says certain parts of the brain have t and some dont. I suppose this would fit his theory which I don't know much about, but it does sound interesting. And he is an advocate of hypnotherapy to treat t, which sounds like what you're talking about.

      I have it really bad when I'm dreaming every night. I hear each tone in and out. I always have tinnitus in my dreams. :(

      No. Perhaps it is a reason I enjoy sleeping! Every once in a while I wake up without T for a split second. It kicks in about the time I become aware of sounds in general.

      I have never had tinnitus in my dreams. I once remember having it but not hearing it. I was in a situation where I was trying to explain my tinnitus. It was the ONLY time that there has ever been a mere reference to my T.

      Thank God. As sleep is sometimes the only refuge that I have.

      No, sleep is the one time I finally don't hear my T. A few times though, I dreamt that I had T and was trying to explain it to people, but I didn't actually hear it. Sleep is the one thing I really look forward to for silence.

      I think your brain must shut down particular parts of the brain during sleep and your sub-conscience doesn't pick up on it. My dreams are also T free (as far as i can remember) It's a very uncharted area of science.

      Hey, Neenie's back on the board!...Oh sh*t, I must be dreaming. Maybe I can re-direct this dream though to that Nobel she's winning c/o the cure for tinnitus she figured out....Yeah, yeah, I see it! I see it!

      "Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiing"...bloody alarm clock! Yawn....Oh that's my tinnitus. Sigh!

      Best, Zimichael

      Wassup Neenie??!! Haven't seen you post in awhile (actually I have been absent lately as well). Was a bit worried, but hopeful that you didn't need us anymore! Anyways, HI! :D

      No, thank God, no T in my sleep!! Once I fade off into dreamyland, I am T-Free!! Now if that will just translate to wakeytime!!

      Peace.

      No T in my dreams; but for the first 4-5 months after the onset of my T it would wake me up every 2 hours (screaming beyond all reason) -- I think it had something to do with the way my neck contorted at night (cuz I could manipulate my neck and it would die down).
