      Hey, I noticed you posted a lot a while back about having Palinacousis. I seem to have developed this and just wondering if yours settled down or if you found anything that helped? Thanks!

        Hi, yes it definitely got better but also took a few months to get better, mine was more with loud Basy music, what helped me was some supplements like NAC, magnesium, and calming my nerves, it was very stressful in the beginning. How did yours began? Mine a few days after a loud show and infection

        @ZFire my palinacousi is very inconsistent, lately I've been taking music home but it's definitely deminished and less intrusive, but still noticeable, since they play Basy loud music at work for 8 hours my ears I guess have a timer of how much they can take before the music is triggered.

        The worst thing you can do to your ear, impulse noise from a firecracker about a meter in front of me. Damaged my left ear but my right remained the same for some God forsaken reason. I got 32db rated ear foam plugs, but I'm not sure how effective they are since I keep forgetting the scale is logarithmic. Will use my trusty ear muffs too

        @ZFire sorry for the late reply, my palinacousis usually lasts about 3 hours at its loudest, after that, it'll get fainter but still annoying. Though I haven't had seriously loud ones In 2 weeks which is nice, still I hate vents and fans when I get even minor ones cause they produce music or chatter.
