I recently posted to say my tinnitus seemed to improving, well maybe I was a bit hasty as over the last week, I've noticed its been spiking again. Don't know if this is down to the colder weather or build up to Christmas making me more stressed? Or maybe it's a bit of both. I've also noticed a sound in my other ear that freaked me out in the early hours of this morning, I woke up around 4am and could hear ringing in my left ear and had a bit of a panick attack. Now I went out last night to my works Christmas party, a medieval banquet, which was fun. But there wasn't any loud music but a room full of 30 people chatting as you do. So can only assume it's this that has set it off and I just have to hope it settles down and remind myself not to pay attention to it as I'm sure that's what causes T to become permanent. If it doesn't settle will phone audiology and see if I can make an appointment to speak to my audiologist as I think early intervention is best. I really don't want tinnitus to start in my other ear so I'm praying this is just temporary.
