      2 days ago I smoked a lot of weed and suddenly my tinnitus and heart rate begun to be like double and I felt like I was sick, anyway now tinnitus is less but still like 50% more than usual and it is horrifiying!!!

      does anyone have experiance with this, I do not smoke weed "with friends" and share it I smoke a full cigarette alone.

      Ive had tinnitus for years and smoked weed for years.
      My tinnitus would always get louder when I was high but it would go back down to normal the next day after I slept and woke up sober.

      I think it may casue a short term perception ( while you are high ) that your tinnitus is more intense.

      I smoke moderately due to depression associted with T....I can't say that I notice a difference in volume/intensity after consumption.

      Some people zone into their tinnitus while high, for me it helps take my attention away from it. I feel more like I want to engage in some of the things that I was once interested in pre tinnitus.

      well I am very sorry that your tinnitus is so strong that your daily activities have changed, maybe you should try NAC that is antidepresant food supplement that both helps with tinnitus and helps you cope with stress.

      my issue is that I think that my tinnitus is like 20-30% louder after that high and it has been days

      Since T, I tend to just take a "hit" or two at a time, if I try a whole cigarette of it I'll get a big spike. I think spacing it out makes the spike more temporary.

      I will look into NAC...thx

      I honestly don't think it is the weed that spiked your T. I smoke every other night or so, and it always seems to be the same ol bs T in the morn after a night of smoking.

      I guess we are all different, but for me, it doesn't do a thing plus/minus as far as tinnitus intensity....I however may get a laugh or two in after I smoke, very rare for me these days!

      well I am new to this so your system has probably have adjusted to the effect, I am stopping this because mild calming is not worth this 100bpm heart rate and 3 times increase in sound

      My mind boggles at what your talking about chaps,no way on this planet would I ever attempt to go to that stuff,maybe if I had a terminal illness,and pain,I'd look,as health professionals say it gives patients pain relief same as morphine does,but I no nothing other to its benifit.How I'd like to keep it to.
      Again each to his own,but if it changes your T ,to worse,then give you an increased heart rate,as I've said mind boggling to me all to do with this stuff but interesting,in relation to it and T alone .Maybe my age showing to its use.
      You just takecare
