      Well, mine doesn't. It seems to stay the same no matter what I do. I also have pulsating tinnitus, and it used to "whoosh" when I moved around, bent over, or had to lift something. But it has calmed down a lot now, so that I hardly notice it during the day.

      If I sleep on my right side it gets louder and higher pitched; until I turn to my left side

      No difference for me. But because I use a Sound Pillow, prefer lying on my back because both ears get masking sound then.

      No clue - too many causes.
      My noise, no matter what position I'm in, doesn't change. It will get louder
      when I have to go for a pee break.

      Mine seems to alter about. It kind of all over my head, like someone has shoved sn alkaselter in my brain.

      Finding it virtually impossible to sleep anyway, but do keep shifting position, 'the fizz' moves about with me.

      I wish I could sleep on my back.

      Hi, @Tonia: It is a pillow with speakers embedded inside. For me, works better than separate speakers you slip under a pillow case. It comes with a white noise device but I just have the pillow itself, which I plug into my smart phone and run a noise app.

      Most tinnitus for me is in my left ear so if I lay on my left ear it gets very intrusive.
      I actually think I don't have t in my right ear.
