      Very odd and unusual experience this weekend. The T in my right ear traveled over the top of my brain and into my left ear and then ringed very loudly in the left ear while the right ear was in complete silence.

      Unfortunately the peace only lasted for a few minutes however i thought it was a miracle.

      This tells me that T is with certainty something in the brain, perhaps due to brain damage of some sort (in my case head injury).

      Has anyone else experienced something similar?

      yes Martin.... i had noise in my head one night ,it was very loud and all over my head to the point that i actually could feel my nerves jumping all over my head(brain) i was petrified, i ended up in the ER and was having anxiety and panic attack i guess on top of it, they gave me benydryl for some strange reason??? and it had to be flushed out because i had a reaction to it that made my heart rate go real high and felt like i was going to pass out.. but i could actually feel it moving all over my head...

      My Tinnitus has started waking me up at night now, and it feels like a loud multi tonal noise in my brain. I get up and walk around for a bit and it settles back into it's normal state. I guess if it happens, start moving around, do something, don't just listen to it.

      I know it's easier said than done.

      I actually had similar experience yesterday. While I was working on the computer the T moved over from left to right and the faded away and went back to baseline. I wish i would now how to tell the brain to stop.

      Here are my MRI findings. In short optic nerve is acting up and pressure due to fluid around brain, but brain looks healthy.

      BRAIN:

      There is bilateral distention of the optic nerve sheaths, with
      flattening of the posterior globes and bulging of the optic nerve
      heads, suggestive of papilledema and elevated intracranial pressure.
      There is also an expanded, partially empty sella. Meckel's caves
      appear slightly prominent.

      Brain parenchyma appears normal. No mass lesion, abnormal
      enhancement, infarction or hemorrhage is identified.

      Ventricles are normal in size.

      Paranasal sinuses and mastoid air cells appear clear.

      IACs:

      Posterior Fossa:
      Brainstem and cerebellum appear unremarkable. No cerebello-pontine
      angle cistern mass.

      A vascular loop of the right anterior inferior cerebellar artery
      slightly enters the right porous acusticus.

      A vascular loop of the left superior cerebellar artery abuts the
      medial cisternal segment of the left trigeminal nerve near the root
      entry zone.

      Temporal Bones:
      Seventh and eighth nerve complexes appear unremarkable, without
      evidence of mass. Otic capsule structures appear normal in signal.
      Mastoid signal within normal limits. No other temporal bone signal
      abnormality is identified.

      Yep, was in a store and for 5 seconds all T was gone just enough time for me to notice the blissful silence.
      But have kind of the brain wave experience with it. When we were in another part of the store I heard a buzzing that was bothering me, was with my daughter she could not hear it. Just dropped a bottle and now a spike, geez!

      Unknown
      My worst week started when I rolled over in bed to hug my wife and my tinnitus dropped from my right ear into my left. It was kind of novel to have quiet on the right, but it freaked me out at the time. I've had more central noises since, but still mostly on the right.

      I recently found that my (mild) hyperacusis is exclusive to the right ear. If I plug my right ear while doing the dishes, for instance, clanging plates together doesn't bother me. I think the whole disorder - tinnitus and hyperacusis - is a fault in the part of the brain that turns down background noise. Evidently I have that problem mostly in the nerves on the right side, but occasionally it migrates up the path to where nerves from both ears come together.

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Loud noise exposure or an ear infection, or maybe a combination :(
      While I was doing pushups, in the middle of it I stopped and covered my ears to try listen to how loud my Tinnitus was and then there was pure silence. When I was finished doing pushups, I had about 6 or 7 mins of pure silence then it came back :(
      Probably blood pressure has an affect on how loud Tinnitus is...

      Signs seem to point to head/ neck injury!
      Yes, this just happened to me about an hour ago. My right ear is the "bad" one and I was at the store and suddenly my left ear flared up and took over. My right ear stopped ringing and back to 'normal' after like 30 minutes.
