  3. GregCA replied to the thread Audion Therapeutics Trial.

    Exclusion #1 isn't going to make it easy to understand the effect of the drug on T sufferers... I guess maybe T isn't someones primary complaint,...

  4. GregCA replied to the thread Warning! Very Negative Post...!.

    Why don't you tell us what triggered your onset? T sucks for sure, and everyone in here knows a thing or two about it, so you're not alone. The...

  6. GregCA replied to the thread New York Post Article on Hyperacusis.

    No, it's because my surgery got rid of most of my H, and that surgery addressed the middle ear. The exercise you are doing sounds like what we do...

  7. GregCA replied to the thread The Day I've Been Dreading.

    Yes 40 is definitely more concerning than 38... Makes sense. Especially in your case, the sooner you can deal with signs of infection the...

  8. GregCA replied to the thread New York Post Article on Hyperacusis.

    It means the difference between the air conduction and bone conduction was 50 dB. That typically means that your middle ear (and sometimes the ear...

  9. GregCA replied to the thread Really Big Spike and Sudden Hearing Loss in One Ear? I'm Totally Freaking Out Right Now!.

  11. GregCA replied to the thread The Day I've Been Dreading.

    To be honest with you 38C doesn't sound that critical a fever, especially at that time of the day, but the stabbing pains are concerning, and if...

  12. GregCA replied to the thread I Heard That Someone Might Get Tinnitus After Having Their Ears Syringed. Is It Possible?.

    The bones are the ones transmitting the energy to the hair cells, so yes.

  13. GregCA replied to the thread HPV Vaccination with Tinnitus?.

    I've read about that too. Nothing related to T though.

  14. GregCA replied to the thread I Heard That Someone Might Get Tinnitus After Having Their Ears Syringed. Is It Possible?.

    The ear drum and the middle ear are physically connected to the cochlea, so a trauma on the ear drum is mechanically transmitted to the cochlea...

  15. GregCA replied to the thread If Hyperacusis Goes Away, Will High-Pitched Tinnitus Lessen a Little?.

    It didn't for me, but my T isn't due to loud noise.

  16. GregCA replied to the thread Supplements & Tinnitus — What Do You Take? What Should I Take?.

    The latter, unfortunately. Some things work for some people, so trial and error is one way to proceed (with caution).

  17. GregCA replied to the thread Transcranial Stimulation Treatments (rTMS & tDCS & tACS).

    You should know that this is true of many drugs as well. Have you ever taken Tylenol? Penicillin? Are you reluctant to take them? Because their...

  21. GregCA rated Samir's post Agree in the thread Ear Imaging Technology.

    That's true. Ideally, it would be best to see the cells like under microscope, i.e. optically. But maybe we can find other ways to fill the gaps?...
