      Sorry to see you are doing bad again with your Pain H. Since last time I posted on your wall I have spiraled to where I am unable to care for my children and am isolated constantly. My heart goes out to you friend.

        Do you feel fullness, pressure behind/in ears and clicking/popping sound in ear?

        @RishRamsey does that happen all the time or occassionally? I had it for a day or 2 but it got better. sometimes digital sounds from laptop or phone hurt my ear with sharp pain but it eventually goes away

        Sorry to hear about your ear infection. Definitely one of the biggest fears I have. Hope you get it taken care of with no issue. My three year anniversary with all this crap is coming up in June. Here’s to hoping we see some improvement.

        Sorry just seeing your comment. Noxacusis for three years. I went into a record store playing music at a “safe” dB level by typical standards. Unfortunately it wasn’t safe for my tolerance.

      Seeing a lot of my friends getting married and starting new lives while I sit here in silence with my earmuffs on feels weird.

        Indeed. I now know what its like to be a prisoner with a life sentence. Even that would be an upgrade though, cause they can socialize and maybe be in silence sometimes.

        There's a point you reach where you just stop caring, and then you laugh thinking of the inevitable misery those marriages will end in, while you continue to remain unanswerable to anyone and enjoy your boxset of "Fresh Meat".

        I'm in the same situation. A good friend is moving to Spain to get married, they are fucking like crazy now to make her pregnant asap and then I won't see her again. My best friend is already on full family mode, basically almost everyone I know has the A4 life with kids and wife. I'm not saying I neccesarily want that but it would feel better to HAVE THE OPTION.

      Second ear infection in as many weeks. Don't know why. Earplugs/ Earmuffs to blame? Feeling defeated :/

        Yeah, @RishRamsey. Foam ones are the most hygienic. I've never had an infection from using foam. However it's still possible by wearing them too long, because you're then creating a sweaty, anaerobic environment inside the ear, which is perfect for certain bacteria that can cause problematic infections.

        If you ever switch to silicon plugs (which are way more comfortable for long periods of use, and better for understanding conversation etc.) make sure to wash them with anti-bacterial or alcohol wipes after every use.

        Also like @Steph1710 said, give them a clean in warm water with a sterile solution, every couple of weeks.

        Noted @Damocles. I think what helps foam earplugs being hygienic is that you dispose them after every use. I've been guilty of using a single pair more than once - won't do it now.

        Hi @RishRamsey , I am sorry you go through all this. If it gives you any comfort, RL-81 might give you some relieve. The precursor Trobalt helped some people on this forum with pain hyperacusis. the new medicine will have more effect. Hang in there buddy!

        Sometimes when we realize the pain won't back off we have to decide if we're going to. It's not an inspirational pep talk - that crap is for fantasies and sports, this is real. It's okay to be tired, it's okay to break down or throw things and lose yourself for a bit. Just know you're going to make it through this. I know because you've made it through everything so far, that's a pretty good tract record.
