There are times when my tinnitus is up and down. Some day’s it virtually not there apart from a low noise, sometimes it can remain for days like a quiet drilling, rustling noise with pain, it’s not your typical high pitched tinnitus noise, but more like vibrational body noises, not pulsating tinnitus which I suffered as a kid, difficult to explain really, sometimes I mistake it for the plumbing. So do the experts know what causes the fluctuation in tinnitus level and why it affects people differently? Tinnitus is the sensation of a noise in the ear or head when no apparent source for the noise is evident. The patient should be questioned as to duration, intensity, quality, pitch, pulsatile nature, fluctuation, sleep effects, and resolution of the noise.
Characteristics of somatic tinnitus include intermittency, large fluctuations in loudness, and variation in the perceived location and pattern of its occurrence throughout the day. Does tinnitus commonly combine with feelings of vibrating ‘pressurized’ flows in the head? And woozy head feelings? Even for those who do not hear pulsatile relationships? __________________Breathing is good. Hello, I am interested to know how many of you folks experience tinnitus fluctuations in volume and pitch and what might cause them? It appears my tinnitus takes on many different fluctuations, from day to day, even minute to minute, in both ears, mainly in pitch. Can you explain to me what this passage in that paragraph means, the effects of the lesion can be regularly bypased and do not demand hearing tinnitus all of the time? Thanks for input on the two questions.
As I am now completely free to use the device however I want I experience quiet days more often (about 1 or 2 a week), but still, I do sometimes wonder IF it’s the device itself or just a common thing Tinnitus can do. Therefor I would like to hear some experiences from fellow beepers. Zero corresponds to an absence of tinnitus; 100 corresponds to the loudest tinnitus you can imagine. If the latter was the case, we asked them to evaluate this fluctuation on a visual analog scale, with the maximum value corresponding to the loudest intensity during the course of the day and the minimum value corresponding to the weakest intensity. In almost all cases, tinnitus is a subjective noise, meaning that only the person who has tinnitus can hear it. People describe hearing different sounds: ringing, hissing, static, crickets, screeching, whooshing, roaring, pulsing, ocean waves, buzzing, dial tones, even music. The perceived volume of the tinnitus often fluctuates. The recordings, like tinnitus itself, are can be quite loud and irritating.
They are often described as an increased-pitched ringing but can also be identified as a pulsing, buzzing, hissing, roaring and whistling or various other sounds. Tinnitus can be very mild in loudness and only noticeable in a quiet room or it can become extremely annoying and loud to the point where the sufferer hears nothing else. A tinnitus sufferer can’t escape the constant sounds, but she can learn to tolerate them. BY JACQUELINE STENSON Special to the Times Many people with tinnitus hear the classic ringing in the ears. There is a caveat: Tinnitus can be like a cold or the flu or a backache. It can return. You’ll get headaches and tinnitus fluctuations. While some people have hearing that fluctuates like this without any further symptoms of dizziness or tinnitus, in most cases, this does not progress to Meniere’s disease (Schaaf et al, 2001).
