      Tinnitus Since:
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      I heard a loud noise when I got up around 4 last night. It was the sound of the truck cleaning the road. The truck was passing by my room. I always keep the window closed, but even that can't stop the sound, and I realize it years later! It doesn't pass around my room for a long time. It goes by for 10 seconds. Could this be the cause of my tinnitus? Or could it be the reason for the increase in my tinnitus loudness?

      I highly doubt it. Except if you have an extreme case of reactive tinnitus.

      Try to measure the loudness from your position when it passes by. Overexposure to 80+dB is bad but I don't think you'll be getting those numbers.

      May not be good to hear these sounds when you are asleep.

      I’m currently expediting a spike from road noise. I was outside walking my dog at the time and had earplugs in. I was exposed for 5-10 minutes. Road noise was around 75-80.

      Praying it settles but my tinnitus is noticeably louder
