        I remember reading that noise induced hearing loss/tinnitus has a higher Synaptopathy factor than hair cell loss, so maybe Synaptopathy drugs can help NIHL people the most?

      The tone stuck in my good ear last night faded by 2AM. I think a lady screaming on a TV show caused the ear to react. Is this reactive T?
      1. Keith Handy
        Keith Handy
        I think of "reactive" as quick both in starting and stopping, so it overlays sounds and fades as soon as the triggering sound ends. But it can have varying ramp-up and ramp-down speeds, from instantaneous to several seconds. That's my take, based on experience.

        @Keith Handy, Ok, I've experienced this description of reactivity early on with my T/H. This description seems to be much more rare now that I'm 2+ years in. What I experienced last night was like a spike at a certain frequency (a scream) but without spiking the normal T I experience. Really wild, don't know if it has an official name.

I continue to be optimistic that we are at the tipping point for treating SNHL. Once we've all had our dose of FX-322, I'd be happy to host an Alumni get together. Music will be at a responsible volume, and the foods will be low in sodium.

        Curious if you had a preference, regarding tinnitus and hyperacusis. I couldn't conclude one way or another, as tinnitus is a real side effect that's not super common. My instinct was that J&J was slightly higher risk.

        I've currently been 100% remote since my firm shut down in March from covid. At first it took some adjustment, but now it's working out well. My current job req's a ton of communication, which I do well remotely. I def don't miss the commute, put about 100 miles on my truck since march, 2020. There are talks about "everyone coming back" .. not sure I'm feeling it.

        I agree with @ajc . It's probably a double edged sword. At the moment I am living in a country which is not my own and we are "strongly encouraged" to work from home, so I am completely isolated. I think I would have confronted my tinnitus better if I had my old routines of going to the office and meeting few colleagues...

        Even though I am somewhat reserved, I'm finding that I miss the camaraderie of working with people and being part of a team. Ironically, most of my career I was on a team and hated it. My husband went back to his office about 2 months ago and it has helped him mentally. He said he is more productive in the office without the distractions of home. He is asking his staff to return in June.

        For three years I had very faint cicadas. I heard someone say recently their T sounds like angry cicadas. I never knew my faint cicadas could change, they never changed and never came into my consciousness unless I listened intently. Now I also have morse code in the ear that experienced the acoustic trauma.

        @LilSass Hi! I'm not exactly sure what caused my original T. I had a back injury 5 years ago and I was prescribed several meds. I also had an MRI which I remember the tech said the ear plug doesn't fit in your left ear. She continued with the MRI w/o any protection and I thought she would tell me if it wasn't safe. I remembered the very faint cicadas started after I did a micro-taper of Clonazepam.
