      I have T, louder on right ear. Overall my t is noticeable in quite environment. There is something I noticed few days ago, when I move my head (a little harder) on left side, my T on right ear slighty increase for few seconds. Is it normal with T patients ?

      Your t might be somatic.. possibility of treating it is high..
      Better check with a doctor.. do some scans and tests of your head and neck

      I have more or less the same problem. But the loudness/perception immediately increases when I put my head on the pillow. I don't know if this can be classified as somatic T because I guess it happens with most of the T sufferers. Maybe there is a neck position involved? Any advice ?

      How is somatic T treated?

      @Asian somatic tinnitus are caused by physical issues like tmj ..neck muscles stiffness.. nerves pinched..
      For me also the t is bit loud when lying down. . But I doubt it is somatic reason for me..

      Not exactly sure.. you can check with a dentist for tmj
      And a neurologist for pinched nerves. .

      Hi,
      I have the same problem when lying down or pushing my forehead against my hand, but another problem is that I just don't know what kind of doctor I need, neurologists just prescribe you vitamins B.

      Very common. There is a muscle or ligament that pulls on a nerve that runs through middle ear. My T volume more than doubles when I twist my head in either direction, but in my left ear only. Researchers have identified which cases may respond to treatment. From what I recall very few do. But certainly worth checking with your physician or a specialist. Many good links in the following thread:

      It's normal for me.
      I've been checked for TMJ. I've been to different chiropractors and doctors about it.
      40 years of it. I guess that's the way it is.

      Hi
      I had ups and downs through the years when I was around loud music. Overall, it has only slightly increased in all this time. But around 1977 I started putting cotton in my ears if I was around loud sounds.

      Thanks, this give some hope to live with T. I am worried if it will get increased in future. Just wondering, should I put cotton if I am going to a movie theater.

      Ishank,

      When going to a movie theater, I think you should always take earplugs. Even foam ones will do, but high-quality earplugs would be best. There are various suggestions of kinds to buy elsewhere on this forum.
