      Tinnitus Since:
      Just wondering if anyone else experience this weird hiss/sizzling noise, something like shhhhhh/tzzzzzzz, something in between.

      It's very noticeable at night, almost as if my whole head has been put into a frying pan full of hot oil.

      I feel like French fries:)

      When I plug my ears I don't think I can hear it as a clear sound but it's definetly present.

      Anyone else?

      Could this be due to anxiety?

      Hi, @valeri,

      I understand what you mean about the hissing sound. I have a hissing sound, too. It could be due to anxiety, but it's also true that some of us experience tinnitus as a hissing/sizzling sound. In my case, it's probably the brain trying to make up for the hearing loss at a certain level. Do you know if you have any hearing loss?

      It's probably most noticeable at night because that's when everything is quiet, and there are no other distractions.

      I certainly sympathize with what you're going through right now. Please know that it may improve as time goes on. Mine has improved quite a bit since the beginning, and I'm hoping yours does, too.

      Best wishes,
