        Double protection whenever you are outside, are you serious? This is bad for hyperacusis and bad for your overall ear health as it needs oxygen.

        @Martinf I mean, maybe not when taking a walk in the woods, but when being in public places, walking down streets or such, then definitely, you don't want to put the health of your ears in other peoples hands. We can get enough sound enrichment in our homes, we don't need to be exposed to +80dB city noise to have hyperacusis under control.

        I've felt the true wrath of severe hearing problems. I have a hard time determining more cruel medical conditions than this. You don't want this to worsen, the risks are too high. Then you choose double protection, or at least single protection, when outside. No compromises.

      Since i got T my ears click & pop 1000 times a day. I never understand how sound can cause this. I never had ETD my entire life!

        Have you considered that it might be MEM or palatal myoclonus?

        It was a kia picanto car and I was just passing infront of it I just hope it is the stock horn and not a custom one. If it is stock horn it shouldnt be more than 107db at 1m distance

        Thanks dude. I think it is just my perceived loudness is not normal due to my hyperacusis. I should learn how to relax and not stress too much. All my T spikes actually are from stress.

      T and HL is 90% genetics and probably only 10% by noise. It sucks to be us.

      I met someone today who has severe HL but no T at all. He said he was born like that and he never heard any ringing in his ears/head

        What is with this nofap business. I’ve seen it posted quite a bit. Why would you want to punish yourself more than you’re already being punished? Just chill and bash one out.

        I used to do calisthenics and would practice handstands and L-sits on my rest days. I also don't think I could do handstands anymore, just bending over spikes me for some odd reason.

      Many nofappers are claiming that their T reduced significantly after a month of no PMO. I lnow it sounds ridiculous but I will do this

      If the parents are both deaf the child has only 10% chance to get born deaf. Me, my mother at 60 can hear 19khz and me T with bad HL at 28!

        Every time I don't, I end up encountering something loud. Like someone dropping stuff at the store or loud cars driving up beside me on the road.

        I lost it at 6khz, only left ear where my noise induced loss was originally, only when I laid down on my left side, 30dB drop.
        Came back slowly over 5 hours and overnight. T/sound fx got worse in both ears over the days afterwards.
        I worked on an idling engine beforehand with earplugs, ...have done that before, louder than this, with the T and no issues.

        I think many people have challenges hearing people speak in loud environments. That is pretty normal. I have extremely mild hearing loss in only one ear and the last time it was tested it was actually back in the normal range. But I usually surround myself with so much noise to block out the Tinnitus that when people talk to me I can’t hear them.
