      Does anybody hear new tinnitus tones when they plug their ears?

      Not always, but at times yes. The problem is when I hear new tones when I'm not plugging my ears.

      Don't plug your ears! If you only hear these tones when you plug your ears, then don't check for them. Don't remind your brain that they are there, or you may soon begin to hear them when you don't plug your ears.

      Have you heard of it making it worse?

      I'm just trying to make sense of what it means. Am creating the sound with pressure, or is it already there?

      You can’t. No one knows what it means bro. Just don’t do it. You’re just going to bring on Unnecessary stress.

      Hard to say. You could potentially be triggering a tone by pressing on your tragus in a certain way.

      Yes, it can definitely make it worse! Your brain will become more aware of the sound. It's like if you just sit there and listen for your tinnitus. You might find that it will grow louder and louder and louder.
