Member, Male, 36, from Finland

I've not been here for a while. Still alive and kicking! I can live almost normal life but still can't make music or listen for long time. May 25, 2020

      Why is my T louder today? I haven't done anything else but some cleaning today. Even my ears feel different.

      I could live with my T, but this hyperacusis makes life harder. I miss music so much.

        Glad to hear that, hopefully your h will improve over time and soon you will be able to start music again. : )

        I feel your pain, I thought I would never again listen to some of the music I love, but it's been easing since I was on Amitriptylene and I have a lot less trouble now. I can handle Pink Floyd again but probably never go back to Motorhead!

        Bro, you can maybe start planning out for your next music project while your ears takes a rest, and don’t overthink about stuffs and meanwhile, go do some exercise; summer is getting close, you gotta start working on abs again my g!!

        This forum is very important. Most healthcare providers will tell you not to come here. They do so with good intentions, mainly. They just don't want you to start focusing too much on T or the symptoms.

        At the same time, most people in your normal life probably don't have T, or at least T that's debilitating. The camaraderie and experience of other sufferers is the only way I've learned much beyond the nonsense of the BTA.

        It is normal to cry. My ENT said that her patients who cry are always tinnitus patients.

      hey Strife, I am in Connecticut, (USA). I am doing pretty well! With "T" there are good days and not so good ones. Today was a good one. My tinnitus is intermittent; so it is low at times and louder other times. When it is low, it does not trouble me at all after seven years now!

      Took some pseudoephedrine. It rings! So I have thought this T of mine is blood flow related, even I got it from music.
      1. SashaG

        I think it´s also stress related, I mean we are musicians, it´s terrifying to know that our hearing could be damaged. You need to hang in there and keep your body strong!
