      Spikes do not fully subside when I wake up. Previously I would wake up to a hiss, now it is between hiss and ring... Did my baseline change?

        Mine has only been changing for worse since the onset (a month ago). I also struggle with hyperacusis. Tinnitus is so reactive I have several spikes a day which last hours. I do not how to handle it.

        I did not have a single good day so far. IT has been alright only in the mornings. However, since the Valsalva and the fight with my family, baseline is not hissing anymore and there are many new sounds.

        I didn’t have T when I woke up but I do now so I’m assuming it worsened

      Why does T worsen everyday from every little thing? How can someone bare 5 sounds developed for a month?

        I can attest that tones do come and go. I raked up 10 tones at one point spanning both ears, which later went down to what I now consider 4. If you can protect and avoid to get more tones, then I think yours can improve.

        I too can confirm what @Stacken77 and @Damocles have said. My onset started in April and I’ve had many tones as well as musical tinnitus that have come and gone. it’s a process that’s going to take time to manage. First year is indeed tough and I’m still struggling at times.

      Furthermore, new high pitched tones appeared. Others changed intensity and volumed up. 5 tones now in left and 4 in right. What is happening

        I appreciate your kind words but I really doubt this man .. It all started with a high pitched hiss that I would now kill to have back. Every little thing seems to permanently worsen my tinnitus. I do not find it normal to have 4 more tones developed for 1 month.

        I wear hearing protection when outside, when chatting with someone, when in the office - only when I am alone I don't. I prefer to be deaf with one year but not have tinnitus... Really. Unfortunately I really think my life ended with this , which was on top of every other sh*t I was already in and was barely managing to function even before tinnitus.

      After a short fight yesterday - spike. After sleeping, spike has not subsided fully even though it always happened to be the case so far.

      New tone just starting to emerge in the left ear. Come on man, I think I've had enough. I developed 3 new tones for a month. Is this normal?

        Even if I had perfect health, which I am honestly far away from - Tinnitus would still have crushed my whole being. I was the guy who always wanted silence - always. I enjoyed sleeping with earbuds so much. I just found a nice silent apartment for rent after my split up and I was kind of happy for this, because I know how difficult this is when you live in a big busy city.

        However, God obviously wanted to try me even more and bring me this dreaded condition. I am almost sure I am not going to be a success story even though it has only been a month - I keep worsening constantly since the onset even though I am protecting from loud noises and using ear buds when outside or when even talking with someone ...

        Please do not go yet, stay with us a bit longer. You might want to give a chance to some medications first (LDN, Keppra, Gabapentin, Benzos... honestly, whatever it takes to stay afloat). You are still in the very acute phase, chances of major improvements are high for you. Plus, the impression I always had by reading this forum is that hyperacusis after a noise insult clears up quite often.

        After I slept, the spike has subsided a bit. However, ear is still muffed and I cannot seem to pop it order to equalize. WTF is happening with my ears... I used to have perfect hearing and one minute caloric test ruined them for the rest of my life.

        I am even willing to undertake stem cells procedure and go into debt but the uncertain results are holding me back for now. My ears continue to worsen since the onset even though I am diligent in protecting them. I just do not see it how I am going to get through If I do not get a little bit better. I am also considering laser therapy. What are your thoughts on these procedures, @Damocles ?

        @Danail With regards to stem cells, @Tau Is in the process of getting it done in Germany. If that turns out a success I would definetely go for it

        @Danail, no one who has successfully habituated to their tinnitus, ever believed they were going to be able to habituate to their tinnitus.

        It just happens.

        @Stacken77 @Damocles Thank you so much guys! Your kind words bring me back some hope after two long exhausting weeks living with tinnitus and hyperacusis.

        I do wear earplugs when outside. I saw improvement in my hyperacusis before the eardrops. Can you recommend some good ear protection which I am not going to look like a dork
        with when using

        @Danail Hah, there's pretty much no way around it; you'll look like a dork if you really want to have some good protection. I bike to work in my bulky ear muffs, and I get the stares from people, but my ears must come first. Anyway, I can recommend 3M 1100 foam earplugs, I have a pack of 200 pairs. As for muffs, I have 3M Peltors Optime II, but Peltors X5A is said to be the best.
