Hi, a while ago a was diagnosed with tinnitus, not that extreme or uncomfortable at the moment, just annoying on occasions.
What I have started to notice is that some days it is really noticeable in a traditional high pitch way and other days I have a deeper audible rumble and equally some days I hardly notice either.
My bad days do not seem to be related high db playing (although I wear ear protection), but seems to be more related to 'lifestyle' - in other words if I've had a stressful day, my tinnitus is bad.
Anyone else suffer this and what have done about it - any successes on how to deal with it and perhaps stop it getting any worse?
Sometimes, and it's only been the last few years, if I'm in a room or area with a lot of noise, I get this weird "cracking" sensation in my left ear.
It's not too bothersome right now, but definitely something I've noticed lately. I'm not too interested in it getting any worse.
