      I don't know how I can keep carrying on. There's too many loud noises. Everyday no matter what I do I accidentally run into one.

        Me too. I'm moving to a quieter place and will mostly be staying at home for a year at least.

      I hate the drivers in this area today. It's not just one but CONSTANT barrage of cars revving their engines...in a 5mph shopping center. why

      Just a reminder: sugar free gum/soda is ototoxic if it is sweetened with aspartame!

        I'm not going to avoid every drug on the list or I'd never get help for my other problems. I was reading through it and was surprised aspartame was on it. Figured no one scrolls down past the medicine section.

        Some people on here don't take NSAIDs because they're ototoxic. The safety of aspartame is often called into question. It's enough for me but I don't have a soda/gum addiction.

        If you're talking about addiction that's another debate :) I also believe addiction to soda can be dangerous, and not only for the potential ototoxicity of aspartam

      Being trapped in sorrow and constantly thinking about your condition(s) gets tiring. For me, I feel numb but that doesn't mean I am happy.

      Amazing. I'm astonished how quiet my tinnitus has been in the face of all this hyperacusis, TTTS, and visual snow. What does it mean??

        Left ear is good. Right still has pressure feeling from this morning. Unlike the left we couldn't get all the wax out. Voice is echoey also. Moderate tinnitus in right. I will try to get the remainder out with debrox.

        Vertigo from post-ear cleaning gone. My home is relatively quiet so T is noticeable but appears to be baseline. Still feel clogged though, especially when I try to talk which still sounds echoey.

        Understandably there is ear pain. It was not a gentle process.

      Shouldn't we acknowledge that as tinnitus sufferers we are destined to get worse unless we are extremely lucky?

      If I have to be honest, I get rather annoyed by the amount of thread necroing on this forum. If the last post was 2+ years ago,why reply?

      Trying to discern if I perforated my eardrum or not. Ugh. I really am not in the emotional state to deal with this.

      This cold spike has been the loudest spike I've ever had, worse than spiking from a fire alarm. Seems quieter upon waking up, hope it stays.
