Im 22 and for ages I've always had tinnitus - ringing mainly in my right ear, gets worse obviously around loud noise ect. For the last 3 months it's gotten worse, it rings kind of deeper and louder seeming more central in my head. What makes it more annoying is that (normally in more quiet places like in bed, ect with less sound) if there is a sharp sudden noise like a creak in the floor board, a door closing, someone putting a cup down, knocking, something falling on the floor (you get the idea) my tinnitus kind of reacts to it instantly (0.05 of a second) and I get this wierd kind of brain zap/jolt/twitch feeling which lasts like half a second. It doesn't occur every time, but it does happen say 50-60% of the time (mainly when my brain doesn't expect this sound to happen). Does anyone on here know what this is? Can it be cured? Helped? What causes it? What does it mean? I have no other symptoms and in good health otherwise. Thank you!
