Somehow my H improved significantly after making music at home for a few days last week. I hope this is a step in the right direction! Oct 1, 2020

      Is it normal for H to affect different parts of the body for no apparent reason? Sometimes it’s my ears, sometimes my neck or even my back!

        I have had days where I swear it's the H causing pain into my neck and right shoulder. Only have H in the right ear.

        H as in pain, or just discomfort/things seem way louder than they are, or both?

        It's entirely possible if the H gets agitated, that other parts could tense up and then cause some problems. Your nerves go haywire, signals being sent form the brain, tensing of the neck or back seems entirely plausible as a result from a reaction to H being triggered.

      H was a bit worse than usual yesterday, perhaps cos I was tired from the week long hike I returned from. Hope it’s better today!

        @SummerDreamer ear pains dissapeared for now but still left with jaw ache :( Even fullness has died down a bit today. This whole things a nightmare.

        For me, and I got T at 18 then really bad with H at 25, once I got it, it took a few years for me personally for H to get better.

        I think my biggest mistake was not realizing that complete isolation of noise wasn't always helpful. Yes, I healed better and fast I think, but I was training my body to avoid noise, mentally, which was having a physiological effect to. Lowering my threshold of tolerance to noise.

        I wen't from door cars shutting hurting my ears, to it sounding loud but not hurting my ears and not tensing me up.

        I think allowing yourself to heal, which can take more than a year or two, and using sound enrichment throughout the day, low classical music, rainfall, thunderstorm, birds and jungle sounds ect., at volumes like 50-60db, keep the ear getting the normal stimulus it needs.

        As for me, I've only had T since April 2020, and although I've largely accepted it, it's still hard some days. Distraction is certainly the best thing for it. I have mild H, so not as debilitating as some. I'm lucky because I live in a very quiet place. I think the worst thing for me, is constantly thinking how life would have been if I never developed these horrid symptoms - but I guess one can't think like that. <3

        I decided to drop the PhD and try and get a job in the end. I didn’t feel ready to commuting to another 4 years of stressful studying!

        Ah me too, I also live in a quiet place (UK countryside) with my parents so feel quite lucky. There is a good chance your H will improve with time though- just take it easy! And Yes I often feel like that too *sigh* but we can only make the best out of what we got. I try and enjoy the simple things and not expect too much of myself, which I always did before.
