      Cause of Tinnitus:
      I do 3 of these, vape, drink tea and eat chocolate.

      Allegedly these can spike tinnitus or make it sound louder, is this true as I've heard it's just a myth. Any experience yourselves?

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Cacao (in chocolate) and theine (in tea) both have a stimulating effects on the nervous system, so for some people these things can increase T temporary. If I where you I would stop vaping since vape juice is ototoxic.

      Acoustic Trauma
      I ate some chocolate (for the first time since I developed T) half an hour ago, and now I am experiencing a spike. I should have searched this forum for the word "chocolate" before eating it, and not after starting to experience a spike......

      None of those things affect my T at all. T is too heterogenous for blanket statements, EXCEPT the statement than a legitimate acoustic trauma will make it worse.
