        Combine it with crippling H, really bad nox and you have a home bound person whose quality of life hit the bottom years ago. I will never get better because my damage is too severe. But you might get better, I hope you improve with time or at least don't get worse.

        Please take all precautions, because I assure you that those ear issues have no limit, and this is a difficult perception to grasp. Even mild/moderate H and T folks don't understand it, so I would be really weary of taking advice from people around here.

        If you are smart enough, you will know it can get catastrophically worse and protect your ears. If you have any questions, I would be happy to give you my perspective. Good luck!

        @Juliane For example pushing various meds to people or telling them to expose to sounds or try sound therapy after they have hyperacusis or bad tinnitus (which was what ruined me and many others as well). Would you like some more? Fore additional info you can go through Michael Leigh's posts. If you still think I am wrong feel free to check the study I published in my previous status.

        @catchthebus , my tinnitus is very severe , reactive and it keeps getting only worse. I doubt I can make it better. It is already devastating. It does not only worsen with sound exposure. But also mechanically, when I touch my ear for example. It is ridiculous but that's what happens. It is really loud and I have more than 10 tones.

        That truly sounds like a nightmare that just keeps getting worse. Hopefully, you can find some things to try to at least possibly take some of the edge off. If you never reached out to a clinic or something like that, it might be worth giving it a shot if you can afford it and you have nothing else to lose.

The decision is up to you to take my friend. I know it is listed as ototoxic, this is why I stopped it when I found out. I wish you the best.

I’m also looking into Alpha Stim to further reduce anxiety, it’s supposedly as effective as benzos. There’s a thread or 2 on here about it from @Tybs @Lane about its efficacy.

        The Grandaxin has helped and it’s only been a week since I’ve started it but I’ve had severe constant panic that’s coming down each day but would be great to supplement with a non drug treatment like the Stim to help get me functional again. Hope something similar can do the same for you. @Freerunner

      My left ear is surely damaged by the earplug the other day. All tinnitus sounds are much higher, new ones unlocked and it hurts.Going to ENT

        ENT was clueless about T and did not know what H is. I was not surprised. He inspected my ear and found nothing. Why Is it muffed then, it hurts and I have a louder tinnitus???
