      I have read where many experience intense spikes and they go away in a few seconds. I have it happen often.
      This time it has not gone away and has me in a panic
      Reading over advice that everyone has given about spikes helps me understand but very scared that it won't return to baseline. Just looking for a hand to hold.
       
    2. This happened to me 2 or 3 nights ago and it went down today. Not sure what it means but at least it died down...

      Can check when the spike happen was it sudden as in you can hear T being louder suddenly? or the loudness of T increase gradually?

      What is the cause of your T? Iodiopathic? noise induced? others?

      This spike was like no other I have had. Very loud quick onset.
      No idea what is causing the T.

      I can describe what you have.

      That day before the spike happen you must be having a 'good' day with low T and all of sudden the T suddenly spike with the T suddenly become much louder (like those during the 'bad' days). Subsequenlty for the rest of that day it appear like a 'bad' day. The next day when you wake up it is still a 'bad' day.

      Am I right with what i described?

      You are correct on the pattern. But the volume was louder than a typical bad day.

      Sometimes if is quit a few seconds but most times hours. Usually for me is a nights sleep sometimes resets it. Don't know why it happens, how about you? What helps?
