New loudness record. It's not possible to live with. No anxiety, just don't want to suffer anymore not knowing what tomorrow will bring. Jan 25, 2023

        @DeanD When I first heard my ears ring I was advised it could be built up ear Wax. so, I tried using a blue bulb syringe to suction it out. I feel like this caused damage to my tensor tympani and this also might be playing as a big factor in your case also. If I could go back I would have never tried suctioning out my ears

        In my opinion I believe microsuction can damage the tensor tympani nerve and keep it on high alert. Sounds that shouldn't register as harmful cause the tensor tympani to tense up. From my own experience when the damage that was done starts healing the tones should fade away. This muscle starts to relax and isn't tensing as much so everything else seems to follow

        Shortly after I could be sitting in a silent room and my shit would still be the blasting loud. It's just my personal opinion but I think your tensor tympani is on high alert and your LDL levels might be in the low 20/30DB which might explain why your T keeps raising in volume even in silent environments. I believe microsuction is what caused damage and the soda popping caused some form of extended shock

      New tone added today from nowhere. Been living in silence since accident last Sat. This tone 5x louder than any others. Impossible to manage

        Stress plays havoc on the body and can be pretty hard to get under control even without T.
        Have you had your cortisol levels checked?

        My body reacts to the littlest things by going into a full blown panic even though it shouldn't till I manage to calm myself down.

        I know this my sound useless but try diaphram breathing a few times a day it helps with blood pressure supposedly.

        Hey @Joe Cuber - actually I don't get any more ear fluttering. My reactions aren't great admittedly but the last noise was a coke can that somehow must have been so pressurised it blew the top one inch of the can away from the rest of the can. Never seen anything like it. Sounded like a gun shot.

        @Strawberryblonde - Yeah I agree about the stress. Actually I do find diaphragm breathing seems to temporarily take the edge off.
        Not sure if it's the breathing and bringing in calm or, because I'm living in near silence because of the palinacousis and worsening, that the sound of my breathing is causing it to soften

      Even louder. 110db+. Each sleep cumulatively increases the volume. Something very wrong. Did desperately try. Humans shouldn't endure this.

        @Sammy0225 - the blood pressure meds were to control my heart. I would lay in bed calm, drift on to sleep and the moment I hit sleep I had an adrenalin rush throughout my body to wake me. Couldn't sleep for 4 days. Current BP today is 124/90 - a little high but not in the serious hypertension range.

        Doctor thought this medication may settle the adrenalin rush and allow me to sleep. I took yesterday with sleeping tablet and managed 10 hours sleep.

        @DeanD oh,I see okay the reason I ask is cause I have high BP (inherited) but okay I was wondering. I had something similar to that but I think was panic attacks, cause I suffer from bad anxiety

      Increased again! 100db+ siren. No triggers or noise caused. Maybe med withdrawal. 15 tones. Lost hope now. Just not liveable anymore.

        @Sammy0225 - thanks for reaching out again, it is appreciated. Yeah, I had the exploding head syndrome too which is partly why I had to give up Mirtazapine. I really think it was the meds that took the ringing in to the mess it is now. Tbh it's in part the story of your noise reductions that give me some glimmer of hope - so thank you for that

      Tinnitus no longer a 'sound' but ultra high intense tuning fork sound pressure. Head pressurised. Extreme intensity. WTF. Think this is it

        @Jupiterman - desperately trying but the volume increased again. It's now above voices. Just can't stem it. Has to be the meds as I am living remotely and quietly.

        I had a soda release a huge amount of pressure after opening it yesterday, and I’m paying for it today. for us having sensitive ears I always considered setbacks like this a form of shock to the ears. Like NYCguy mentioned give it time. Your ears should heal from the setback mine typically take 7 days to relax again magnisium and NAC might help while it settles

        @DeanD I read somewhere you can’t sleep (at all). I think you should discuss with your GP to short-term try a mild benzo instead of Zopiclone. Hopefully it could help you both fall asleep AND stay asleep (at least for a couple of hours).

        Hi @Biaxca - I'm so sorry you're also going through this. I've seen so many people on forums who got this through microsuction. Unfortunately there just aren't enough of us getting it this bad to make enough noise for the practice of microsuction to be banned.
        Do you have hyperacusis, as well as tinnitus?
        How was your hearing before and after the microsuction?

      Thought I’d let you know I had a random but bad ETD bout hit me over the summer (before Tinnitus came along) and I will still get random swelling but it has significantly gone down. I take a DAO supplement product before I eat to lower histamine in the body, which I really think helps as histamine reaction often plays a part in ETD.

        Hey @DeanD sorry For delay.. it came on as pressure/fullness in the ears and like I couldn’t equalize pressure, always had to yawn to open e tubes. As uncomfortable as that was. I would take that long term over what I have now with reactive T. How are you doing?

        Hey @ErikaS - mmmm ok, seems a little different to what I have. Unfortunately not too good as of late. Medical system here is not only useless but damaging too. Trying to fight, but the reactivity beats you down and hits you over the head with it - literally. How are you, is the neuromodulation still going in the right direction?

        @DeanD makes me so angry how non responsive the medical system is with regards to this. I am so sorry. Do you have anything on hand to help like an as needed anti anxiety?
        The Neurofeedback clinic was closed last week and this week unfortunately, so I will be going back again next week.
