Welcome to the second episode of my Ask Me Anything about tinnitus video series where I answer your most pressing questions about tinnitus!
For those new to the blog, my name is Glenn Schweitzer, and I’m author of the book Rewiring Tinnitus. I also write a monthly tinnitus column at Healthyhearing.com, and for the last 8 years, I’ve worked with nearly 1000 tinnitus patients 1-on-1 from all over the world as a tinnitus coach, helping people to habituate as quickly as possible to find lasting relief from the ringing in their ears.
In today’s video, I will be answering another important question about habituation: Is it possible to habituate to tinnitus that changes and fluctuates a lot, or is occurring intermittently and changing day to day?
In this video I discuss:
- The difference between fluctuating tinnitus and intermittent tinnitus
- The different ways that tinnitus can change day to day, or throughout the day
- Why habituation is 100% possible, regardless of how much your tinnitus fluctuates
- The specific emotional challenges that need to be addressed for habituation to occur
- How having tinnitus “off” days can lead to emotional whiplash
- How fluctuations often start to stabilize as habituation occurs
- Two recent tinnitus coaching case studies
