There are two kinds of Tinitus. One involves the ears and one involves the auditory part of the brain or sometimes the filtering system of the brain. Mine is related to my temporal lobe epilepsy. It has nothing to do with the ears. It came in an instant one day and hasn't left. It gets worse when I eat high sugar food. It is related to excess energy flowing through the brain sometimes. I use it to monitor the state of my epilepsy, it works pretty good.
I read an article that said possibly a third of the tinitus out there may be something in the brain. I guess as long as it is making the noise the brain is still working

I too have woken to the sound of chanting. I often have OBE's, one morning I woke up to the sound of a chant, with my eyes closed I layed there waking up trying to identify the noise, and realised I was the one chanting. I was saying "OMMMMMMMM, OMNI OMNI OMNI OMMMMMMMM,.... Repeated it about three times before I realised it was me. Once I became aware, the vibrations for the OBE started, then blast off about five seconds later. I have never chanted Om, or heard the chant I was speaking until that morning. I would like to add, I was in a dream that I can't remember at the moment, but I literally woke up to the sound of my self chanting, dream ended, blackness from my eyes closed, fully able to think. Even if I still had '___' running through my body, I don't understand why my body would have chosen that specific phrase to chant, while my brain is fully occupied with a dream, and continue after awakening.
