    Has anyone experienced aggressive tinnitus spikes when first waking up? For the past 4 mornings I’ve awoke and start hearing the most loud, aggressive tinnitus I’ve ever managed. It builds in frequency for about an hour. Sometimes it’s multi-tonal. After about 70mins. It becomes the usual tinnitus I hear. It also changes intensity and pitch when I stimulate behind my ear and the back of my head. In all my years dealing with tinnitus I’ve NEVER experienced it so loudly. It’s like a siren is shaking my head. Does anyone out there know this phenomenon personally? Another symptom of late stage Ménière’s? Please advise and thanks.

    Sleep apnea and or teeth grinding could cause this . Go to a good dentist.

    I do have sleep apnea-a new dentist may be necessary. I’ve noticed my tinnitus is worse when I bite down. Thanks

    I have had this happen, but at random times, not just subsequent to waking.

    One thing I am starting to notice is my Meniere's keeps changing. I have heard some of the strangest things from my right ear. From pure digital tones out of a sci-fi movie, to roaring staticy sirens at times.

    I have the same problem. I was recently “diagnosed” with Menieres, the initial attack happened June 2020 with a weekly severe attack. Since I started working out again things became manageable to an extent, however the attacks come out of nowhere. I am still learning to deal with this, I injured my right ear during an explosion that affect that ear about 2017. I lost about 70 percent of my hearing in all hearing levels. I have had tinnitus since the explosion only in my right ear with it being in different levels, from something that was like out of sci-fi movie to an ultra high frequency that made my ears tear up. Recently the attacks moved from as soon as I woke up to now coming at about 8-9 at night.

    Since dealing with this for 5 months I’ve noticed the same thing. My Ménière’s symptoms are always changing so it’s impossible to find a pattern to them. My tinnitus had all but disappeared to what was a low “busy phone signal” but last night had two vertigo attacks 3 hours apart and now my tinnitus is blaring static with a beeeeeeppppppp in the middle of the static. It’s exhausting.

    It changes all the time though when I wake up some days It think the tinnitus is louder. Maybe because I just became conscious so hard to tell if it's louder than normal. You wake up and, "What the heck is this?"

    The tinnitus I was experiencing was like a blaring in my ear. Like a siren. This happened for a straight week then I was diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt Syndrome which aggravated my Ménière’s. I’ve been violently dizzy ever since-and it’s a different kind of dizzy than before. Before it was aggravated by head position-now it’s like any position causes summersault feeling. It’s hard to retract too and land me in the ER every time because it last 8-24 hours with intense vomiting. So hard on my body and spirit.
