      Can't sleep. T had been loud ever since I went to nightclub. I was already feeling almost normal and my T was very silent....

        You're experiencing a spike. You'll get back there. Be calm. Continue to protect.

        You'll get there. I believe it.
        There are spikes that last weeks. Yourr current stress level and lack of sleep is making things worse. Hang in there. Eat full meals, focus deeply on something like a project, and take something to sleep if need be.

      40 minutes @ nightclub few days ago was not worth it. T level is still bit higher than normally... Gotta be wiser in the future.

      Not the best idea to go to nightclub. I only was there for 40 mins to say goodbye to my new school "friends". Newcomers party.Never again.

        Nightclubs are hell holes. They've always been. Music is way too loud in those places.

      Still no good. Every time I listen music or am too much around loud sounds, my ears start to feel strange and my hyperacusis comes back.

        @HeavyMantra My H got worse again. There was so much noise on gym, my ears are "sensitive" again. It's definitely something physical inside my ear...

        I see. Well, expect spikes apart from noise too. I recently just left when I got to the gym, even with earplugs it must have been like 70 db. But with that the problem is the horrible, soul-crushing shit they play on radio. Back in the day I had in-ear headphones and listened to metal, effectively blocking that out

        I don't know why, but if I stay in very quiet for long, like a couple days, then my H goes way up. If I'm out and about, working, etc, then that aspect comes way down.

        Hang in there man. It's going to get better and better. I think the first fluctuations are fast and then the rest is slower. Stay positive. Some people's clears entirely at the 5-6 month mark.

        I am so sorry what you are going through, I've been there it can take 10-12 months to heal. TRT has logical flaws as it does not seperate pain hyperacusis from loudness hyperacusis, and failed to show any difference then regular sound therapy. TRT is the equal of treating nerve damage with massage therapy, it helps relieve symptoms but it's not good treatment. Do proper homework before considering it.

        @COYS it's the frequencies. The volume is not that loud. But my monitor speakers have very bright treble. I need to let my ears heal even more. Now my hyperacusis is worse again. I has to be physical issue within ear. It's like broken bone. Feels fine as long as you don't use it.
