I wonder why alcohol helps with H fullness/ache. is it affecting the trigeminal nerve, relaxing tmj, distracting the brain? Sep 15, 2020

        not endorsing abuse. alcohol is a powerful drug. but a pour of whiskey is definitely helpful sometimes.

      crunchy ear + eustachian tube feeling stuck open sometimes = trigeminal problem. how do we get that nerve to chill out...

        my tmj is worse on that side as well. and it’s where my t started after plopping my head on my pillow. but t spread to my other ear a few days after onset... so it’s in the brain too.

      house-shaking thunder for hours now. huddled up with my old dog, not sure who’s more disturbed

      I keep hitting a “ceiling” in my H recovery but it seems to have slightly increased over these 4 months.

      How are you doing? Is your H improving?
      1. Croaker

        Improvement in some ways, the fullness is uncommon, but the pain is about the same. I took a break from here since the research results we’re all waiting on won’t be released for a while. Thanks for asking.

        For me too. Probably takes a while for this to improve.

      Tried lipo flavonoid only because a family member gave me a bottle. Ran out yesterday, T is spiked today. Placebo is a funny thing.

      It’s fun to follow the SpaceX streams and Starship build updates. Tangible progress in a stagnant world. It distracts me for a time.

      I’m a prisoner in my body. Had H for 40 days now. Can’t survive years of this. Have to remind myself that some symptoms have faded slightly.

        Yes, somehow. Too many things I want out of life to give up yet.

        Exactly. So keep on fighting and hopefully in years you can look back at how well you handled the most shittiest situation.

      My hyperacusis is clearly influenced by my mental state. Such a strange condition. I think I will improve ever so slowly

        The fear, of course, is whether I will improve after the next inevitable acoustic shock.

        The vast majority of spikes are temporary...

      My furlough turned into a lay off today. Luckily I can rely on family. I got my life together just in time for a disaster and hyperacusis.

        Yeah due to covid I haven’t worked since mid-March but HR let me know yesterday I won’t be returning. Not that I could with ears like this.

      Moved my head lying down and put my ear over my arm accidentally. Raised my head automatically, felt some suction... hope there’s no damage.

        That’s the “better” ear I can sleep on without the pillow screaming at me. Don’t know what I’d do if I lost that.

        Something like that could cause a spike but the spike has got to be temporary.

      Ear pain is a little better today. I feel like I’m on a tightrope over lava. Luckily I’m still furloughed till July so more time to rest.

      Anybody find relaxing in a pool helps with ear fullness? The ache stays but the relief is still nice (if temporary)

      After getting better I had a bad H setback a few days ago. Ears so full. Constant fear. I beat depression before tinnitus, but this is hard.

        H will eventually get better. The setbacks can't be avoided - don't worry.

      I'm so scared my noise sensitivity will get worse before a treatment is out. I can still work for now. Gotta be careful for several years...
