      Last night I woke up some time after 2:00 a.m. - not because of T, just because I woke up. So I was turning round and trying to get back to sleep when I felt my ear go "deaf" and loud T start i.e. fleeting T. I know this is nothing to worry about so I stayed where I was and waited for it go down. While it did go down it bit, it stayed quite high.

      It panicked me a little bit because it hasn't been that high in a long time. I lay there listening to it. I don't know how to describe how loud it was, because it was quite and bear in mind I was half asleep. But it was very loud and scared me. :nailbiting:

      So I tried turning on my other side, and after a while it felt like my T went down. But I am more comfortable on my other side so I turned back around, and once again I felt like my T increased. It often does sound louder anyway because I am lying on that ear, but this time it felt like the volume had been turned up again. The other one played up a bit too, sounding louder than normal.

      I managed to sleep, but I had strange dreams about loud noises like ambulances and made me think my T had gone high again. Needless to say wasn't the best night's sleep I've had, though I managed to get about seven hours which is not bad at all. It was also loud this morning, though it dropped down again quickly. It amazes me how quiet it can go - but terrifies me with how loud it can be too.

      The only thing I did differently was that I inhaled again which I haven't done in a while. Perhaps that got the fluid moving around in my ear a bit more which caused the noise to change/get louder? I have also felt my eardrum moving around again; it did it last night after I had been in the shower.

      I know my T is related to pressure change/congestion, and I know I have only had it for two months and three days (but who's counting? :p) so there is a good chance it is just temporary. I know that it is because of fluid in my ear (can still hear it gluging back and forth)...

      But some days it is very hard to put up with all. Most of the time I ignore it, I tell myself it will go, I remain positive. But some days you just don't want to deal with it. Some days you need a break, but with T you don't get any breaks. I do occasionally get moments of quiet, but these happen very few times and not in a long while now.

      I am just so tired of this.

      Okay, rant over now. Just needed to get a few things off my chest. Will go have a hot chocolate with marshmallows from Costa which will hopefully cheer me up.

      I get this from time to time. Resolves itself usually the way yours did. Keep doing what your doing seems like your making progress

      Thanks @cullenbohannon. I hope so. I have faith that it will go because there is at least a physical reason for it, but there are moments where I have this fear that it will always be like this. If I'm honest I could probably learn to live with it - there are people out there who have a lot louder T than mine is. I just don't want to.

      Thank you for your kind words. Hopefully we will both be free of T soon.

      I feel exactly like you, Citigirl! Some days I'm fairly upbeat, and other days I've just "had it" with the T. It doesn't help that it's been the longest, coldest, dreariest winter ever and there's no "Spring" in sight. I'm also stressed out at work, trying to sell my house, and generally not feeling that great. All I want to do when I come home from work is go to bed, because the T subsides somewhat when I lie down. Here's hoping for better days ahead!!

      Thanks @DebS. I hope for better days too!

      I heard the USA winter was terrible. In this part of the UK it hasn't been too bad, but in the South it has poured with rain, so much so that people have been flooded out of their homes since Xmas. Thankfully we have finally some signs of Spring. And selling your house is always special, especially with the way this market is (though hopefully getting better). Hopefully there will be peace soon and a good summer.
