      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 you know any known cause of your T or did it pop up out of no where?

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

      I don't understand why I have balance problems from my acoustic trauma. I wasn't exposed to bombs or guns. I was exposed to headphones.

      As my family says about my H and T "You're crazy Taylor." "We need to take you to a shrink.". You're the real reason I'm going crazy. :'(

      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

      I'm excited!!! Im soon getting some nice reusable and disposable earplugs. :D!!! I'll use them only when needed. But they are good to have.

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

        @Michael Leigh I'm not. I just only had very few disposable ones laying around that I kept with me just in case I need them.

      H and T are a real pain. That we all can agree on. But let's not allow it to take away what we hold dear in life. Stay positive. <3

      First Month in and T has gotten worse and higher pitched. I'm told since I'm young it will heal. I hope so... :'(

      My T has seemed to have gotten worse after my Acoustic Trauma. My family doesn't believe me + they are loud as hell. I just want relief.

        I know what that feels like :/ My parents thought it was "anxiety" at first and my mom didn't understand at all. They'll eventually understand that you really have this.

    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.
