      That is just pressure change in your ear. Goes away in a few seconds. Happens to everybody. Nothing to do with Tinnitus!

      @grate_biff Yup keep dismissing it as something else. That will help.

      @grate_biff lol nice response (hug rating). All I'm saying is I wish people were more aware. Sorry if I came off like an asshole.

      I agree. Using headphones was probably the main reason for developing my T. But the phenomena we witnessed here is bc of pressure in the ear.

      Don't get me wrong but people haven't gotten tinnitus because of pressure Change no?
      Either way.. he had short term tinnitus.

      That was fleeting tinnitus and can be an indicator of auditory nerves degenerating I believe.

      @grate_biff

      Why do people assume fleeting tinnitus is caused by pressure change? Where is the study? When I've experienced fleeting tinnitus it wasn't like my ear popping to equalize pressure, it just muted then beeeeeep for a few seconds then I regained my hearing. It only seems to happen in one ear too.

      Same for me. I have had fleeting tinnitus since I can remember as a child, it happens randomly and is not associated with any particular thing. Sound drops out and is replaced by a loud tone, then the tone fades and my hearing comes back up. Always in one ear (not always the same side).

      Maybe because of ETD?
      If people get it from ETD why not pressure change?

      Since when does pressure change cause the sound to drop and a loud beeep? I fly a lot, that's a lot of pressure change, and I have never experienced anything remotely similar when flying. Maybe it's different causes for different people, but I can't see how pressure would cause it. Seems to me more cortical or something going on in the cochlea.

      Ditto to this, it has never happened to me on a plane. Now this is our opinion of course and not scientific, we may add a question about fleeting tinnitus to our next survey to see how many have it and if it correlates to anything.

      I have been tested for ETD and don't have it.

      Any noise in the ear is considered tinnitus if it has no external origin. However, in his case it might have been a muscle spasm.

      "fleeting tinnitus" is what the guy in the video is describing; it's not very well understood but it's incredibly common and most people who experience it do not have chronic tinnitus.

      I don't know anyone in their 30s or 40s or beyond who has not experienced this from time to time. It may relate to some kind of damage to the auditory system, and in my case it does seem to happen more frequently when my chronic T is flaring, but I don't think there's any reason for an otherwise healthy person to worry about it.

      I believe that water has the most effect on your ears when it comes to pressure.Don't get me wrong but air pressure does have an effect as well in high altitude.It's just that you're in direct contact with the water pressure.I'm pretty sure that diving 20 feet deep into water has more pressure than most ppl can imagine.I always experienced fleeting T in our local swimming pool and that was 10 feet deep.
      I could hear my T under water.
      (Google) Density/weight of water is actually much higher than air.
      So anyone experiencing fleeting T could be a natural occurence or actual pressure applied without realizing it.This one of the reasons why swimming is a no go for me.
