        Met mij vrij goed, ik scan natuurlijk mijn T, en ik denk dan "zou die krak geen schade hebben gedaan, en moet ik weer geen medrol nemen".. Maar eerlijk gezegd, dan zou ik dagelijks medrol moeten nemen. :)

        Mijn broer heeft een snellere afspraak kunnen regelen, zoals ik voorstelde. In Wilrijk weliswaar, maar soit, het is goed dat hij een ENT ziet.

      Does anyone ever get random "stings" in the ear, what does it mean?
    6. JurgenG

      Weird: T is low (good), but my hearing seems to be a little bit less. Feel like I need to put my volume a bit higher than usual.

      Hate closing my ears with my finger when it's raining, made a loud "pop" sound because of the moist.

      My T is pretty pretty quiet again, I stopped using my fan at night, and just switched to very quiet whitenoise&rain sound.

      anyone using soundpillow? Been using it for 9 months, helps me sleep, could it impact me negative? Speaker is close to ear like a headphone.

        I use masking when I feel my anxiety raise and my awareness of T raise, then I put on one of my favorite masking tracks and take "a break" from the T.

        Providing the volume of the pillow speaker is kept low there should be no problem. Preferably slightly lower than your tinnitus.

      stupid spike, some people laughing and handclapping for around 6 seconds total, just when I didn't have plugs in.

      1 y later. Still makes me sad that I knew there was a risk in what I did, but did it, with T as result. Never thought i would get T ofc. OCD

        I keep looking for reasons why it is/was worse, I had a friend do a clap a meter from me, might this be enough to give a (temp) spike?
        Dec 9, 2017
      3. Red

        Depends on the sensitivity of your ears and your friend's strength. I do not think that would give me a spike though. I find it strange you are wondering about a clap though, are there not other noises that are louder in your day to day life?

        It looks like medrol is like prednisone, for inflammation. I have a crunchy left jaw joint that could be inflamed...very loud noise atm.

        Ask what the best med is for Sensorineural hearing loss. I thought mine could be neck related but probably inner ear nerve damage.

        I don't know if you can do damage with muffs + plugs tbh if you didn't stand next to the speakers. T can spike due to many causes.

        That's my thoughts exactly, but I am not sure anymore. Last time I had such a peak (1 khz) was a week after my initial trauma, I have to say that this peak dissapeared after a few hours though it's still a bit higher.
