I guess we all reach the end our ropes. Extreme T and H has no limits on worsening so I'm at the end of my rope. Housebound. Sep 30, 2022 at 7:27 PM

      Extreme Tinnitus now ringing and buzzing so loud after driving to my house. Hasn't went back to original baseline. Can it decrease in volume

        Sounds like a spike, yes, it can decrease, it might take a while. Some people experience spikes for minutes, some for hours, some for a few days. Has your T ever permanently increased from its baseline?

        Yes it will most likely go back down. It's not uncommon here.

        when I'm around noise even low level sound more than 1 or 2 I get confused and sleepy brain fog almost. So also my legs have weakness and arms sometimes too so he yes I'm losing patience when I can't even talk without nerve pain and people talk for me and make appointments. Also when I eat I cannot eat anything crunchy or hard rattles my ears and makes em sensitive and when I swallow even soft foods

        For sure is a nightmare and a lot of suffering, but believe me with time it will get better. The issue seems ears take long time to heal.

      Damn I don't know if the nerve block injection calmed the nerves and reduced my H or was it the midazolam. Anybody had midazolam with H

      I can hear my jaw clicks and muscle movements. Is this auditory gain or autophony?Breathing and chewing if I cough it rattles my ears

        If it's autophony, it has most sounds to be abnormally and uncomfortably louder. A booming, echoing sense inside ears, alike being enclosed inside a small thin-walled container. Is this what you have?

        after my biggest setback everything hurt and i couldnt even click a pen withouth being in pain. My pain also used to be so bad it spread throughout my face and kept me awake at night luckily it went down. I still have H but i can do alot with a foam earplug in. I couldnt even talk with foam earplugs in 4 months ago now i can talk alot withouth them. I hope my case gives you some needed energy Mal.l.

        My auditory gain or autophony is so loud and idk why is it the hyperacusis doing this or me protecting my ears. I can hear clicks and pops in my ears and chewing and breathing is really loud. I can't even talk without nerve pain. I've contemplated offing myself several times.

      Been in the house for days! Protect the ears and go outside then come home and deal with spikes super spikes. Tensor Tympani Syndrome maybe

        Im working on this too...best i can gather is simply allowing your ears rest, dont over protect them with earmuffs/plugs in your house and slowly exposing to outside sounds again. A quiet night or early morning is best to do this.

        I also have read that speakers hurt our ears and if you need volume to buy good high fidelity speakers. I just got one, Ill try it out later and see if I can tolerate it. My other cheap speakers tear my ears up. When this 1st hit i was able to watch things that relaxed me, Then the reactivity started. Hopefully I can relax again watching stuff with the better sound speaker.

      Lymphadenitis is what the ER says. Prescribed Augmentin spiked my tinnitus. Hyperacusis been severe for a week. Amoxicillin or Augmentin?

      Is patalous eustachian tube dysfunction causing autophony or is it hyperacusis? When I chew hard foods it's so loud. Breath loud too.

      Sensitivity higher when I'm nervous or BP higher or after being around a little noise. Should I try the Busiprone or the steroid?

        Do you have a therapist and/or psychiatrist? The weakness and tingling sound like symptoms of your panic attack. Do you have any medication prescribed to help you with your anxiety?

        Yes. My own voice felt so loud, any time I would talk normally, it gave me ear discomfort. I had to whisper if I wanted to communicate. It eventually resolved on its own over time. It should happen to you too.

        Did u use ear plugs or noise cancelling headphones? Currently I went to the store kinda later in the day and it's bad again I tried to slip out the plugs all the way inside a store and I felt horrible. It's like as the ringing gets louder my ears get more sensitive. My voice rattles them rn. Sigh

        I only used ear plugs only when I head outside. I don’t wear headphones anymore. Your voice will be naturally louder when you have plugs/headphones on. Occlusion effect it’s called.

      @Mal25 you've been through a lot. My tinnitus started at 42 years old and it has been none stop for 32 years. Please do not take your life. work through this give it at least two years. Acceptance is the key. I pray for better treatments or cure! G-D bless.

        Never get to quiet down. I try to mentally adjust. I cry and pray. I have a supporting woman for the 32 years. She is also my wife❤! I sometimes have reactive T I work through it. I pray for better treatments or cure. Hang in there.

    Tinnitus Since:
    06/2022
    Cause of Tinnitus:
    I think maybe cervical instability issues
    I'm a 42 year old male from Texas. My tinnitus started about a month and a half ago with pressure in my ears and vertigo and nausea and brain fog. I suspect I had a patalous eustachian tube dysfunction, cervical instability or autoimmune thing going on. I'm a fashion Designer I have my own clothing line Hyperacusis has been my biggest battle. Lately I'm losing. I have pain in my neck and ear seems like a nerve issue but connected to sensitivity when I go around loud place currently I hear it through my earplugs and pain ensues all the way to my shoulder. I heard occipital Neuralgia can cause sensitivity. I used to like music, boxing, working out and video game exclusively Mafia City lol also love chess ♟️.
