Hi, Labyrinth,

I have been having tinnitus for a long time, but it is not related to POIS.  My tinnitus have been cause by my many years of playing the drums :-)   Prolonged exposition to very loud noise is a common cause of tinnitus.   The most damaged have been done in my teenage years - I was practicing and playing without any earplugs, for hours.  Back then, security and health were not talked about like today. 

I couldn't play in a band anymore without aggravating my tinnitus even more, so I stopped.  Electronic drums could have been an alternative, but they are not very exciting to play with, especially the cymbals.  Now I play the djembe, a big African tam-tam. I can play outdoor in the summer, with friends, and it is far less loud than a drum kit   And of course, I always wear earplugs.

I wish I would have prevented my tinnitus, it is not the best for meditation in silence, which I practice daily.  But I have managed not to listen to them anymore.

For years, now, I always carry a pair of earplugs in my wallet.  So, if I end up without notice in a noisy place, like a bar or a reception with loud music, I can protect my ears, and won't have one week of worsened tinnitus because of 30 minutes to 1 hour in a noisy environment. 

Of course, fatigue worsens tinnitus, so POIS can worsen it a bit, but in my personal POIS presentation, tinnitus is not my main concern - fatigue, anxiety, irritability, and the like, are far more detrimental to my quality of life during POIS acute phase.

I have tinnitus from time to time durring night in right ear ,it started few years ago in both ears.
I have no idea is that connected with P.O.I.S or not,doctors didn't find any reason for my tinnitus.
But there is interesting coincidence(or not) that I when I have tinnitus it is always stronger on a day when my P.O.I.S symtoms ends,then day before.
no sugar diet helps me a tiny bit, also makes my mind much calmer in general. Sugar is definitely something my body does not handle well. Also I noticed that other inflammations like a hangover are better since I quit sugar. I avoid sweet fruits as well.

its a really deep/dark sound, like a speaker that plays no sound but is on a loud scala.
