      Hi folks,

      I was doing some woodwork in the garden today, and broke some old wood up. The "crack" of the wood breaking made the pitch of my tinnitus increase. I'm not worried as it always returns to baseline.

      I wish I had a decibel meter to check the loudness of the cracking. I can't imagine it's that loud. It's strange how certain sounds can affect the tinnitus.

      Anyone else have observations like this?

      Peace & Love.

      Yes. The T in my left ear is very reactive. Some of us are lucky to have this.

      Some folks are sensitive to any noise, while others are more sensitive to specific frequencies. You appear to be in the latter category.
