I think my hearing might have gone back to normal, but there's a weird numbness in my left ear. An imbalance, of sorts. I dislike it. Jan 5, 2023

      All I can do now is wait. May need hearing aids a few years from now. I hate this weird notch in my left ear. How it happened, idk.

      Might have lost hearing in right ear, but not sure the cause. It's been days. I've been very careful lately, so what happened? Stressful.

        How much hearing? I’d try and get in touch with an ENT asap if I were you

        @CRGC Not very much. Five decibels. I would be going to an ENT but I cannot afford to right now. Have to stick to my supplements and hope they do something. I haven't felt sick, don't recall loud noise, and don't listen to too high of volume.

        I think a fluctuation like that has good chances of sorting itself out. Good luck!

      It seems that if I expose my ears to music at even ~70 decibels for too long, I start having noticeable tinnitus. Sigh.

        I usually don’t go into 70dbs noise without my musician earplugs. At least a 10db filter.

      Tinnitus and uneven hearing loss again. Annoying. However, I haven't had any issues in a long time. Just have to make sure I'm more careful.

      My tinnitus is back to unpleasant levels again. I also still have that pinch feeling in my left ear that never goes away. How annoying.

      Sometimed tinnitus gets annoying as heck, sometimes I rarely notice it. Seems that it only ever gets bad after trauma.

      Avoiding loud noise and taking antioxidants that are anti inflammatory does actually help. Base tinnitus stays the same, but less spikes.

      Oh, also the tinnitus isn't as bad. So, that's good. If Hough Ear succeeds I should be able to get my life back at full. I can wait.

      Been more careful with ears, & as a result hearing has consistently been around 10 db HL at several frequencies... Yet sometimes 30 db? Odd.

        Were these from an audiogram? Can audiograms get better sometimes? I have a notch too very mild but it's there, probably from years of headphone use,but at least my right ear is completely normaly left ear has a mild notch

      I don't feel any pain, but my left ear reacts to being exposed to too much noise. Almost like a jerk in a muscle. Wth is this?

        Don't worry, normally eventually it goes away. Might take a year or two before it does though...

      I took an app hearing test. It's not that bad. The tinnitus is still annoying, but not awful. But why does left ear feel weird all the time?

      I no longer believe the curcumin is helping, nor the other supplements. The tinnitus is nauseating. Hope it calms back down.

        It made such a huge difference for me for 2 weeks straight, until I got spike higher than anything I ever experienced. It finally calmed down after 5 days, but haven't taken curcumin since then.

        Don't get me wrong, it's helped me in other ways, so it's definitely good for me. Unfortunately, however, it just hasn't helped my tinnitus.

      Artemis, how long have you had this? Do you have Hypercusis? Do you get clicking sounds when you swallow?
      Keep posting on your progress? Hope it mellows asap
      1. Artemis2K
        Artemis2K
        That feeling is gone. Earlier I also had some pulsing, but I am not sure what caused that. Not sure what you mean by clicking sound. I don't think it was hyperacusis. I've been playing games more than usual, and haven't really stopped. It wouldn't have gone away if it was hyperacusis. Maybe I had the volume too high at some point and didn't realize it.
