      As if tinnitus isn't bad enough...

      Every time I have what sounds like tinnitus in my ears, and I lie down, and get relaxed, almost dose off, it moves into my whole head.

      Does anyone have this?

      I can deal with it better in my ears, I try not to get too relaxed so it doesn't move and blast into my head.

      But sometimes I just can't help it.

      I think only 1 time in 3 years it has moved from head to my ears.

      This crap is so mysterious.

      I hate it!

      Tinnitus Since:
      I hear it mostly in my ears, but sometimes with certain tones it's like it's outside my head. When I lie down my right ear tone disappears but is replaced by a whistling. My left ear is all over the shop. I remember about 3-4 weeks into T, I experienced awful scary noise in my head and ears whenever I lay down. I mean I had to really brace myself, it was shocking and really frightening.

      @jeannie . Hi this is very common your not alone it's not just you who experience this. My T is in my ear most of the time then I can have it in the whole of my head then back to my ear. Don't panic it's normal to experience this.

      It's neurological so yes. That is what my DR said. Normal.
