Does anyone else not get H pain but instead get H itch/tickle? It feels like I wanna scratch my cochlea but can't. Jan 15, 2021 at 7:24 PM

      I’m on a rollercoaster - last night so loud I could hear it outside, today so quiet it’s largely masked inside. Let me off.

        I think it’s gotta be nerve/inflammation related. Yesterday I was exposed to noise = nerves inflamed = loud. Today stay inside = less inflamed = quieter distant noises. I don’t think it’s hair cell loss as it doesn’t explain reactivity or clean audiogram. I think basically my inner ears are open wounds and require inaction to heal. Also assume H is a similar mechanism as reactive T.

      It sounds like a circular saw cutting through a metal beam...

      Now the sound is like a sea of metal rice grains being poured over one another - largely atonal - still loud in silence - still can't nap...

      Tinnitus seems to be changing. I seem to have lost the EEEEEEEE of the first two months, except for when I put on Peltor.

      The thing about having a good day - particularly a drug-induced good day - is I am terrified of tomorrow. Severe T is heartbreaking.

      Dysacusis/distortion is still very much present and everything has a grating squeak to it.

      Almost hear silence today - I get this more often recently - but it feels so fragile. I feel inanimate. Maybe I have PTSD.

      Does anyone else experience “fake” silence? When most tones temporarily disappear and you realize there is still one underlying...sucks

      My tinnitus sounds like a brassy wall of ultra-high pitched frequencies.

      Day 47. High pitched tinnitus that feels like my ears are being subjected to nails on a chalkboard. Still have distortion/reactivity.
