For almost what felt like two weeks, the high pitched reactive sounds in my head/right ear had basically vanished. One of them is like an oscillating flicker, like someone is changing the channel on a CRT TV. Only the pattern is random. Another is a whistling type sound, though this has gotten far less reactive over time when it occurs. And has disappeared for time periods even longer. Leaving only a very light hiss in my left ear and a lower 2210/1105hz sound in the center of my head that I can only hear if I plug my ears or in silence or when it spikes. Not a huge deal. I was so incredibly happy, i've had them disappear before too for similar periods of time. All was fine, I even went and rode my ATV last weekend for about an hour and a half with ER-20 plugs in under my helmet. While this very temporarily spikes my other tinnitus sounds. It doesn't bother me that much. As I can take my plugs out and still feel like I can barely hear them. Still no ultra high pitched stuff. The following 3 days were 10.5 hour shifts at work. (T felt like 0.5/10 90% of the time) No problem until towards the end of the 3rd day, I noticed high pitched sounds started to come back. And then they came back about 80% full force of the worst it has been. This was right on the cusp of a 4 day weekend for me. I'd say my T went from a 0.5/10 to a 5 or 6. So naturally it made yesterday a real bummer. It did seem to get better by the end of the night. And today it seems like it has gotten better too. A 2-4 instead. My Sinuses on the other hand are just as erratic as ever since my T started. I'm pretty sure it's Turbinate Hypertrophy. It's the only thing that seems to match my symptoms. Not even Pseudeoephedrine can completely make the symptoms go away all the time. Sometimes I can feel my nose fighting the meds back when I took it. I can feel the pain as it starts to swell up and close off. Or that it only gets them open enough to breath. It does make a massive difference though once i've taken it enough days in a row. What sucks though is that it's an OTC drug that requires a prescription in Oregon. So I have to jump through all these hoops to get it. And since I have to wait 5 months to get in to an ENT (which will probably be not helpful at all). I could really use PE. Waiting to see if my PCP will fill a script for it today so I don't have to drive 8 hours round trip to CA or WA to buy some. I also regularly do a Neti Pot rinse and took Nasacort every day for almost 4 months straight and have now switched to Flonase to try that. Nothing seems to consistently work. I don't see how all of this could be allergies. I had skin testing done almost a decade and a half ago and I was only allergic to Cats, Birch Trees and some kind of grass. I've had cats my whole life, never really had a problem other than the occasional runny nose. Even now, Cats don't produce any reaction anymore. The only thing that came up when I did blood allergy testing recently was a very large allergy to Penicillium. We've got some mold at work in a cold area (~40f), but it also produces no reaction that I can see. So must not be that kind of mold. If I'm in that area long enough without adequate protection, it does make the congestion worse with a runny nose and more snot. The night this started I was in an area about -15f or so without adequate face protection for about 25 minutes. I feel like somehow I broke my nose or something lol. If I could get my high pitched sounds to completely disappear and my Sinuses to stop fucking with me. I could forget the rest of my T for good.
