      I have a serious problem when i rest my body to bed i have increase in T.
      When iam in standing position i have less T or no T.

      For example if iam in standing and have 0db T (checked with closed ears) if i fall to bed i start to hear T.
      Also when i wake up i have most times loud T that resolves partially some hours after i stand up.

      Have someone else this symptoms ?

      My two thoughts are somatic/tension issues, or vascular changes with posture causing a changing in ringing. It doesn't sound harmful.

      T being louder right before bed is, I think, very common, posture notwithstanding. I know at least a couple people who are not aware of or bothered by T in general, but who can detect it to some extent while laying against their pillow at night.

      Many people notice changes in loudness right upon waking, or within the first couple hours of the day. It's as if the auditory system has to recalibrate itself each day, sometimes you end up with the needle stuck in the red for the T signal.

      In general I don't think about my T much right when I first wake up, and in fact I often have thoughts like "it is very quiet in here even though my head is not especially quiet" -- but sometimes I do get strong tone bursts right around waking in the 4am-8am window, and I really think it's just a manifestation of the cortisol alarm system as my body starts to wake up.

      Sounds like me. Everymorning when i wake up i hear T but not that load. After getting up my T goes way up and stay that way for some time and somethimes it lowers again.

      It happens to me too. My T can be really quiet then suddenly spikes when I lay my head down. Any tips?
