      I went to lunch with my family in downtown Orlando today. It was super loud, cars, bikes, planes etc luckily no spike. Its been a good day.

        That is very surprising since my H is aggravated very easily.

        Hi Taylorslay. I am pleased that you had a nice time with your family. Please remember, it is often the negative counselling that one listens to from other people that can often instil negative thinking into others and make them believe, that every loud sound will cause their tinnitus to spike. This definitely not the case.

      Does anyone's ear sometimes ache? I have H but its nothing like H related pain. Its a literal ache. Its very mild though.

        I used to get this a lot. I think its related to muscle tension caused by T related stress. Both neck muscles from the fight or flight "protect your neck" response as well as a protective tensor tympani that does not relax.

      I truly think Tinnitus and or Hyperacusis makes us stronger human beings.

        They dont make me stronger, they make me weaker. They cause me more anxiety/stress. My view on life has been permanently changed. Never will i be that happy person i once was.

        @dpdx I find that completely false. Much like every challenge we face we grow. Think of all the times in your life where you wanted something bad but it took lots of hard work. You suffered a lot and wanted to give up. But didn't.

        Looking at life in such a pessimistic way just because of Tinnitus and Hyperacusis is not worth the energy long term. For it does hurt our quality of life but once we as people learn to move past it. The challenges we face become easier to overcome. Because no struggle could compare to T and H.

      BTW, forgot to mention hearing is better than ever, oddly. Have to listen around the T, which hovers at 6350 Hz.

      You give good advice, manifested somehow beyond your years. I developed whopping T in both years after getting bouts of bilateral intermittent T for a year+. I have a bad back, with herniated L5 since 10/15, and was wondering if simultaneous use of Tramadol and Norco can cause this. It changes drastically when I move my head around. Thanks for anything you know.

        It's important to also understand that just because you may have good hearing does not mean it can't be noise induced or degeneration of the inner ear in some form. (But usually degeneration depends on age).

        I looked up my anti depressants all over the net because I was worried it would spike my T. I found nothing that gave me the notion it would.

        Do not know what to say without knowing your family. But your family's lack of concern for healthcare is worrying.

      Speaking to my family about T and H, and my loss of clarity in hearing despite no visual loss on my audiogram, is like speaking to a wall.

        It's not that the loss of frequency that I have. I have a loss of volume in decibels as well.

        What types of volume types do you believe you see a loss in? If you're audiogram was within normal levels, then everyday noises should be the same. Do only certain sounds sound lower volume than others? Sometimes when I hear higher freq. stuff my ear muscles deep inside tense up so I can a sort of slight muffle and fullness feeling, sometimes even pain if it's loud enough.

        I can't exactly tell honestly. Feels like it's all over the place. It lacks depth and volume all over. I get pain from high frequencies but I have hyperacusis. When my H isn't spiked everything doesn't seem excessively loud. But when it is, everything is louder than it should be. But all frequencies lack overall clarity. Why I say lack volume because one of my ears is much lower than the other.

        Good to hear it Taylorslay. If you get a little setback, and this is possible, try not to get too down about it. It is all part of the healing process with tinnitus. As I explained to you: it can take many months for a person to fully recover and you're doing fine. Keep the positives vibes going and try to engage in things you enjoy.
        All the best

        Hi Taylorslay. Please try not to use your earplugs too often as this will not allow your hyperacusis to heal.

    Tinnitus Since:
    09/2017
    Cause of Tinnitus:
    Years of excessively loud headphone use
    I got T and H when I was 16. My Audiologist found no hearing loss despite my hearing being uneven (and it still is). My ENT said to me "The ears are mysterious. I think you're fine" after I told her my symptoms revolving around Hyperacusis.

    I'm 17 now. I still suffer.
