I've had T for about 2-3 years and it's very slowly got louder. It's equal in both ears, although I can feel it's more in my head than actually my ears, that's how it feels anyhow. Mine is constant White/violet noise, quite high pitched and totally steady.
With it getting louder I've started to look around for any information or things to try.
So I went on YouTube and found a video by someone who I haven't a clue who they are, and he showed how to tap the back of your skull, just where it meets the neck on both sides by flicking your fingers against the skull about 20 times, doing it very sharply and then repeating if you wish.
When I do it, the tinnitus on my right side disappears but on the left side it stays the same. I'm not sure it's completely gone from the right, there maybe a tiny bit still there but I can't hear it because the left is so loud. But whatever, it's certainly reduced considerably.
I did it about a week ago, then the right ear came back to about half volume again, but it took the whole week to do that, then I repeated the flicking last night and it's gone from the right again, but not the left .....ggggrrrrr......
To those with more experience of tinnitus, does this tell you anything as to maybe the cause or what I could do about it?
Clutching at straws maybe but if you don't ask!!!!!
