I'm back on the board after a long absence. Trying to catch up. So sad that 2 board members have passed away. RIP, Justin and Merlin. Apr 9, 2024

        Hi! I was getting better for a while, and now I'm getting worse. I developed pulsatile tinnitus now on top of the existing T and H, so I'm seeing an audiologist on Monday. How are you?

      I hope you are taking a break from this forum because your T and H are much better!

        Thanks for checking in. My H was almost gone, but then I had some noise exposures that led to setbacks, so I'm almost right back where I started 19 months ago. :( I haven't been around in months, so I'm trying to get caught up on posts now. How are you doing these days?

      I greet you...I read your posts about suicidal thoughts and all that, and I understand you perfectly because I also have such dark thoughts...How are you feeling now? YOU took an antidepressant, did it help you, right?

        @ECP I read it and responded there. I'm not doing too good because anxiety continues and added continued stomach pains during and after 8 weeks of SSRI's late last year that make me feel even worse and even worse anxiety. Will be getting upper GI exam in a few weeks.

        @RunningMan Sorry to hear that. I hope your GI exam goes well. You deserve some relief.

      Hey, @ECP! I saw you said your hyperacusis got 90% better in the past 2 months! Gosh! What things are you able to do now? Have you gotten most of your life back?

        I'll probably check on you sometime in the future again. Curious to know what kind of improvements you're going to see :)

      Hey @ECP , wanted to see if you started Cymbalta yet?? I am currently trying out a muscle relaxer (flexeril) , but if I don't have success with this, I need to make the big "med decision" as my depression is getting out of hand. My psychiatrist recommended Lamictal (anticonvulsant) however I am interested in discussing Cymbalta with him. Wanted to see who your doc recommended this.

        @Mo8409 Ugh I’m so sorry. I do think given that your hearing was not affected, you absolutely have chance to heal from this. I’ve read the brain can just take a long time to heal when something goes awry like this, but it can. Like my taste and smell distortion from Covid in 2020. Took a good year and a half to 2 years to say I was 85% better. No real improvement until after the year mark.

        @Mo8409 when do you find out about surgery at U of M?

        @ErikaS This Friday. I won't be surprised if they want to just keep an eye on it. Typically surgery is only done if symptoms are severe. I'm not sure I'm serve enough. U of M will make the right call. My smell and taste are gone forever because I was working the ICU during COVID and caught it so many times. I'm glad you recovered.

      I dreamed I had a female stalker. I thought she said her name was Kim, but it was actually Tin. It was short for "tinnitus."

      What's worse than having one leafblower outside your window? THREE leafblowers! And I have a Zoom call with a therapist in 10 minutes. :(

      I opened the window to hear the sound of falling rain, and it instantly stabbed me in the ear. I wish life wasn't so hard.

      I had nothing but high-pitched tones in my head until three days ago, when a low hum entered the scene. I hate my life.

      If there were a Christmas movie called "It's a Not So Wonderful Life," every time a bell rings, an angel gets tinnitus and hyperacusis.
