        @RishRamsey I was getting ear infections a lot from wearing earplugs when I first developed T. Now, every few days, I rinse them under the tap, then put them in boiling water with salt, and let them sit for a while, then let them air dry. That seems to work for me. Obviously they’re silicone plugs - not foam.

        @Damocles They are foam ones. Think you can't do much with them other than to replace after each time you wear them.

        @Steph1710 Thanks for sharing. What was your infection like? Did you have pain? I do have pain (Which is substantially different from my regular H pain). And how long did they take to start clearing up? It's been 5 days now since this second one and it's still there. I think the 1st one didn't heal properly as it only took 2-3 days to come back.

Have you read any of my posts about the paper I typed up to brainstorm who I was, my identity, aside from the pain? That was the turning point in my depression, it took a weight off my shoulders heavier than Atlas' burden. I hope it eases soon

        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.

        @RishRamsey 8 months ago basically anything. Running water, opening doors, walking, and even chewing induced symptoms or setbacks (and this was while I was wearing plugs and muffs). Now, I can walk through my home with only plugs and I can eat, open doors, take a bath, walk, and whisper a bit without pain.

        @Labyrinthine Same here. Literally anything triggers the symptoms.
        One thing - when you wore the muffs for too long, did it create the pressure in your ears?
        Like whenever i remove the muff, there is always some kind of pressure.

      Don’t wear muffs in silence, it makes things worse. Your commute to work sound stressful and damaging. Perhaps with C.Virus you can work from home. Or take an absence from work? Like I said, H shut me down...full stop. Good luck
