Each spike I get adds new tones and makes the intermittent ones either change in pitch or constant. H is brutal. I will be a goner soon. Jan 16, 2022 at 2:42 PM

        When I developed bad loudness H again in Feb, I seemingly caught new tones constantly from minor quick noise exposures. This did stabilize after 2-3 months.

        Speaking of demonic creatures, maybe you should try Clonazepam. It helped me when i was at my lowest point ( both tinnitus and hyperacusis). Take it for 2-3 days, the lowest dose. Don't abuse it. Where are you working? Can't you take some days off?

      New tone in right ear. It remained after I experienced a fleeting tinnitus. The fleeting tinnitus subsided but not the tone itself.

        @Danail I got my T from taken doxycycline for 6 months. But I’m pretty sure years of blasting loud music had already accumulated damage and the doxy finished my ears off. When I first developed T, is was mild/moderate, then eventually became almost nonexistent. However, a few months in and I had an episode of fleeting T that stayed - it was loud, like 9/10 loud. And I developed loads of different sounds/tones.

        I couldn’t mask it, it was reactive and then a few weeks later I developed mild hyperacusis. This was all on top of my already very loud and intrusive pulsatile tinnitus - go me yay! Anyway, fast forward a year, I’ve had my ups and down, but most days my T is now at a level I can easily mask with everyday sounds.

        Sometimes it still becomes loud, but other times, I have to check that it’s even still there. I still have hyperacusis, and occasionally I have reactive T. Recently, I walked past a cat scarer which made this beeping sound, and I heard that beep for two weeks after. So, my ears still do weird things, but mainly they behave.

        I second @aura, sleep is paramount. I know that yours is very loud, @Danail, and that obviously impacts one's ability to sleep. What impacts my sleep a lot is anxiety; if the slightest anxiety is present, I will have a very hard time sleeping. So getting it under control is always a good call if the tinnitus causes anxiety.

        My initial bout of T and H lasted about 18 months. When it initially came on, it worsened everyday for about the first 4-6 months. It was catastrophic level T and severe H. But, it eventually resolved 100%. I’m back here again because I got a little complacent…a mistake a deeply regret!

        You’ll be surprised at how quickly it can turn around. I think you need to get to a place of silence, where you can rest your ears. That’s what helped me. I used to not be able to socialize even with plugs due to pain and reactivity. I can safely socialize again with plugs and I’m getting to the point now where I can socialize without

        @Danail, I had everything on suicide levels. I had every symptom out there and wanted to kill myself. Now after 2 years and 2 months things are much better, almost no hyperacusis and quiet tinnitus, I'm almost down to a faint ring/hiss. Take all your will in your fist and fight. Things will very slowly get better.

        Keep going Danail...your suffering is only temporary...you will reach a place of acceptance with it. Believe me, I have had all of the same thoughts as you. But, I habituated once before after 6 horrendous months and I feel it starting to happen again after the last 6 months of being in a very deep dark hole. It's possible to let go of the pain...it just takes time.

        Interestingly as my H improved, my T became quieter. My theory is that hearing injuries are like other injuries in that they require some PT in order to make a recovery. The difference is that the therapy for the ears is about recalibrating the brain’s perception of the signal from the ears.

        @Nadia231 Thanks friend! - I wish it was as simple as that. I think these are important parts of any recovery, but what I think has done the most for my improvements with regards to T & H has been simply; staying in silence for an incredible amount of time and avoiding further trauma. I guess that is pretty simple too, but maybe not so attainable for some

        @AbeS Mine became reactive in Feb last year during two weeks where I either: took an anti-anxiety med (Atarax/Hydroxyzine), or began depriving myself of sound 24/7. I personally believe the deprivation was the culprit. After 2 weeks, a toilet flush was too loud for my loudness H. The spikes always went to baseline though. Then, after a 2 hour conversation, tolerance dropped further, and my spikes could be permanent.

        I've dreamed of going back in time and not going to that concert in 2009, or not taking that job in a music venue in 2007, on so many occasions.

        But as he said, it's an irrelevance. Simple fact is, I was susceptible to tinnitus, and would likely have developed it somewhere down the line, whatever I did.

        Thank you for the encouragement guys. I do appreciate the support. My tinnitus is bad. I mean - I was really awarded with one of the worsts Ts out there. Started with a mere hiss that I would have habituated fairly quickly with. However, it is super reactive, I spiked many times for no reason, I have Hyperacusis which complicated matters.

I cannot even count how many sounds I have and they are all intrusive and reactive , except 1-2. I have not achieved anything in life yet, but I doubt I am going to achieve it with this torture.

        I have been tortured by so many health problems this ear and this is the worst . I am a human being after all - I do not know how much time I will endure this.

        I am really sorry you have to struggle as well guys. I hope at least for you things do get better so you can live normal lives.

        I don't know if I am going to survive this. Tinnitus and H are on its severest form. Literally.

        Hearing ailments are awful I grieve for you my brother, you have the fact that your case is still acute it can and usually does get better in time. None of this is meant to diminish the authenticity of your suffering I know you're hurting but only to give real hope.

        @SD7 it is literally 10 times worse since the onset and I wonder how am I going to manage? It spikes like hell for no reason. It is god damn loud with 6-7-8 tones spinning together in both ears. H is severe I have to wear earplugs all day at home and it used not to be the case. I have a job that does not allow me 100 % work from home. It is so hard and I think I might soon be gone for good.

      I can't just isolate and live like a hermit. I am heading towards the end. I do not want to die but living like this is equal to death

      After Christmas gathering - suffered a spike and ended up aggrevating the tones - one changed pith and it is constant. H is unbearable...

        There was no music - just 7-8 people talking. I was wearing earplugs and even made regular breaks every 30 minutes or so .... Now everything pierces through the earplugs and causes me pain and discomfort. Fucking 21 century plague

        Tinnitus is more bothersome than ever and spikes from taking a deep breath

      Yet another new tone emerging in right ear... No previous noise exposure, I wear plugs all day around my family.

      H and T at suicide levels. Worst they have ever been. My ears feel fatigued all the time and all the tinnitus tones are higher...

        I cannot even bear my own voice for longer period of time. How is this torture going to end? How am I supposed to go to the office for work and not loose my job and life? Why is there so many different tones inside my head which are raging for no reason?

        Try not to use earplugs at home, it its will only cause stress to your ears, and humidity inside your ears. To beat H you need to expose your ears to normal sounds. It is better if you just hold your fingers to your ears when you need to.
        I know how it feels. My own voice used to knock me off my feet. It takes time, bit H will get better. And when H gets better T tends to ease a bit too.

      Does having various tones mean your chances for recovery are minimal?

        @Wrfortiscue Yeah true, it can get better both objectively (volume, intrusiveness etc) and subjectively (habituation). The 2-3 mild-moderate tones I initially developed, disappeared after a few months and they were replaced by other less intrusive milder ones. The damn thing is unpredictable as fuck, but time most likely works in favour of us...

        Had the morse code all night long. Barely slept. How can you mask the morse code?! You hear it over everything, beeping deep in your brain!!

        I have always have a morse code sound, right from the beginning. I actually prefer it to my other many sounds.

        @Steph1710 maybe you got used to it? I really hate it.
        The " morse code & crystal glass" combo puts me on straitjacket mode.
