I successfully treated mine by sleeping with a fan running at night. It's the ambient noise, raises the threshold sensitvity somehow. There are certainly theories out there about how it works. The acoustic reflex (that thump in your ear) too, that's gone. That's a symptom of noise aversion and actually the muscles reflexing to block your ears, protect from loud sounds. Can be triggered by even very quiet sounds in people with noise aversion. More sleep, less stress, less tinnitus, i've noticed. If i'm tired and feeling like ****, i notice it sometimes but not often, it used to drive me nuts.
