      My general doctor keeps urging me to exercise more, which of course everybody should. But I went to an aerobics class and afterwards had a bad spike for a few days. Now I'm reluctant to go back. It was not loud music at all, really just the instructor leading us thru the moves with the music in the background, so I don't think it was noise. Does all that jumping up and down stimulate the brain to get loud?

      It might. Or it might not. We are all different with our T. But the spike always goes away. But one thing is 100% guaranteed - exercise is GOOD for you and thus to your T as well!

      Hi, I was interested in this as well, I read one article that stated people with tinnitus should avoid high impact exercise such as running, alot of jumping because the constant jarring of the head affects the crystals in the ear?

      But I don't know if there is any truth to this or not? Some can run, jump, weightlift without any problems, everyone is different....maybe try low impact exercises such as cycling instead?

      I noticed after jogging that my tinnitus gets a bit louder. It used to bother me but I need exercise for stress management so I've just ignored the spikes. My tinnitus always returns to the level it was. I'm going back to the gym tomorrow so will see what happens after weights and cardio. I need to keep my bones strong and exercise is the only way. I had tried the gym earlier in my journey and it was upsetting when my T spiked but I have habituated my reaction to the point where I mostly don't care.
