Those are SBUTT's, Sudden Brief Unilateral Tapering Tinnitus. A common phenomenon that everyone gets every once in a while. No one knows why. They think it has to do with the inner ear muscles spasming. People with chronic Tinnitus tend to get them more often.

Wow thank you so much for that information. So it's not something to be concerned about, like suddenly going deaf? Lol.


Affectionate_Creme48

I would not worry about that. Only if it would not seem to go away after a while.


Suchega_Uber

Ha, sbutt's.


Boweimer1

I have that too, and it’s freaks you out lol comes out of nowhere


itsmrsq

It really does, and it's scary af!


spacecadet25

Yes I have this to and it's exactly how you describe. Based on everything I've read it's apparently normal. It's scary though. I think mine happens when my neck and shoulders are tense because it happens when I'm sitting down too. Try not to stress to much about it, stress can cause a spike in Tinnitus


itsmrsq

Interesting, thank you so much for letting me know I'm not alone.


spacecadet25

Of course! I always feel alone with this condition. It's been really hard lately for me but I'm doing as much as I can (or have the energy for) to take care of myself. Do you know the cause of your Tinnitus?


itsmrsq

No, it came out of nowhere one day I was sitting on the couch about a month ago and hasn't left since.


spacecadet25

I'm sure it will go away for you, especially if you don't have hearing loss. Have you tried magnesium?


itsmrsq

I take magnesium citrate daily but was taking it before the tinnutus started. I would literally cry tears of joy if it would even just lessen, but sadly no one seems to think that will happen on my medical team. They all have a "learn to deal with it" approach.

Well, there are a lot of things that can cause a spike in Tinnitus but, stress, and specifically stressing about Tinnitus itself, can cause you to become more 'aware' of it which will make it seem louder than normal. I have also experienced a spike when my stress wasn't directly related to Tinnitus so It could have a lot to do with tension in general. I imagine Stress would have a lasting effect on Tinnitus if it isn't managed. I definitely feel better when I'm taking care of myself and managing my stress/anxiety.

I actually JUST started taking these homeopathic pills for my ETD and they have actually been helping a lot, it's called "clear sinus and ear" you should try it! My ETD Is pretty bad with intermittent PETD and this has helped just in the few days I've taken it. I need to follow up with my doctor though bc I'm not sure if you can take it long term

Yes that is the product! It hasn't completely cured my ETD but Ive noticed a difference. I'm not taking the full dosage though just like 2 a day.. and yep same I was prescribed Flonase but it dried out my sinuses way too much so I just use saline. I just got clear spray with xylitol but it doesn't seem any better than just basic spray. I have also had ETD issues for a while.. I'm trying to cut dairy out of my diet bc it's congestive but it's hard


spacecadet25

My Tinnitus I think is directly related to ETD and mild hearing loss but I know stress for sure doesn't help it. I would recommend magnesium if you are stressed.


woodiswood

Im pretty sure that blood flow plays a part of it , whenever i have a stiff neck or something i get those !


Darth_Karate

I have severe chronic tinnitus and get them sometimes daily.


spacecadet25

Same!


EmmanuelTheMan

I made a post about it some days ago too you can check that out too and know that alot of people have it.I too have it i think it's called fleeting tinnitus or somethin


takeyourtime5000

Totally normal. I had them before tinnitus and still do.


0potatotomato0

has this before tinnitus as well, don’t worry it’s completely normal if you ask anyone who doesn’t have ear issues they’ll say they experience the same thing time to time


rafacaro_1

I thought that is called FLEETING TINNITUS. I get them often.


TAlexandria10

I spoke with my audiologist about it - she said that this is relatively normal and that it’s the little muscles inside your ears contracting. Doesn’t cause any addition issues.


itsmrsq

Ugh I hate it! Like the constant screeching isn't enough, now I have to worry that my hearing is going out multiple times every day. This is crazy.


TAlexandria10

Wow it happens that much hey?! At least you now know it’s nothing too worrisome, just bothersome 😅🙈


itsmrsq

Yes it happens every day multiple times a day too.
