    Have you had hyperacusis for a long time? Have you lost hearing due to loud noise?

  7. Juan rated IvanRus's post Agree in the thread Steroids: Prednisone / Dexamethasone / Others (Oral and Injections).

    I still do not understand, you started taking prednisone? 10 dB is not hearing loss loss, it is a statistical measurement error. Do you have a...

  11. Juan replied to the thread Experiencing Pain Hyperacusis After a Voiced Fire Alarm.

    It is a paradox that test to assess hearing are so incredibly loud. There is an obvious risk of getting hearing damaged.

  12. Juan replied to the thread Did TRT (Tinnitus Retraining Therapy) and WNGs (White Noise Generators) Help Your Bad Hyperacusis?.

    5 months is a very short time for hyperacusis. If you can, try to go for a few weeks to a quiet place, like the beach or somewhere in the forest,...

    Michael, you know, as I do, that TRT does not cure hyperacusis. TRT has only been used by some "doctors" (and some of the TRT advocates or sellers...

  16. Juan replied to the thread Did TRT (Tinnitus Retraining Therapy) and WNGs (White Noise Generators) Help Your Bad Hyperacusis?.

    No, TRT does not cure hyperacusis. Think of a bad knee injury for instance; would you be able to walk normally again without surgery, without...

  21. Juan replied to the thread Loud Concert 3 Months Ago — I'm Still Having Symptoms, Burning / Itching Ear.

    Bad thing about that is that it was indoors, so sound would be bouncing all around. That's bad. There's no real cure for hyperacusis, so the best...

  22. Juan replied to the thread Earplugs and Suctioning Incidents... Thoughts and Alternatives?.

    You're not using the right foam earplugs if you are experiencing suction. Foam earplugs shouldnt get stuck.
