        I partially held in a sneeze on accident and it affected my right ear. Other loud incidents haven’t caused lasting worsenings, but everything has gone to a new level these past days somehow from this

      Hi Theezy, do you experience pain with your H?
      1. Theezy
        Theezy
        Yes definitely. It can be pretty severe for a few days to week after sound incidents. If I'm able to have a good week without any harsh noises, my ears seem to settle down quite a bit, and I'll be pretty much pain free. Of course the usual T and H never goes away completely

        @Theezy Thank you for your reply. What is a harsh noise for you? For me it's people talking loud, objects clacking/banging in kitchen, stiff plastic rustling, dogs barking, kids screaming, street traffic... my partner honked his nose suddenly once and that was bad too! haha

      @Theezy sounds like you have made a little progress. My T is less reactive. I think just being outdoors helps. We need some exposure to sound but not too much. I have been taking Panax Korean Ginseng which may be helping a bit too.

        Hey good to hear from you! Sorry, I took a long break from this site. I feel I took the edge off the H a tiny bit by getting outside to the backyard and woods a bit this summer (still pretty much housebound), but the T is relentless and only seems capable of worsening. Have you tried anything new recently? What's your regular sound exposure like?

        I've been able to enjoy summer a bit by getting outside to the backyard and woods. However, the T still quickly goes nuclear if I have any sound slip ups, and it continues slowly worsens over weeks/months. Unfortunately, it seems I was dealt a difficult case, but I hold onto hope. How are you doing?

      How does one get out of the vicious cycle of worsening T and H? As it gets worse it takes less to worsen again. Going on 7 months now

        @4Grace - I did, 44 years of stability going to many festivals, concerts, cinema, gigs etc... not a single change in tinnitus no matter what I did - whereas now its highly reactive to everything - so yes it is possible but it just depends on the individual

        @4Grace - Having lived with this all my life, and in almost every form now, I do think it is easier managing reactive mild tinnitus than stable severe tinnitus. I never cared about the noise because I could mask it, do everything and tbh it wasn't too bad a sound (chirping). Often people say loudness is everything, but I think the tone and loudness together matter a great deal.

        Love you to brother. Had an ok week last week but now feeling worse than ever again. Such a brutal trajectory, and it’s been trending to the bottom for 7 months now (technically 7 years but the pace used to be more gradual). Somehow I still keep going. I truly hope we can find our way out of this bottomless pit somehow

      Spike from last week continues to stack, I did not think it was possible for tinnitus to get this bad. Praying betahistine does something

      My tinnitus keeps worsening too. I'm thinking of stopping mirtazapine and sleeping tabs to see if it improves. I don't know what to do anymore. My head is full of intense noises. This has sucked the life out of me. Gone downhill since covid in October last year and that noisy ENT test. Had tinnitus for 13 years but never anything like as bad as this. Let us know how you are doing. Holding onto hope for us all.

        @4Grace I avoid loud places and situations, where possible, such as dogs barking. If unavoidable I wear discreet earplugs. I continue to go to work in an office, go on hols and do most things normal folk do but it can take its toll on you. I outright avoid certain things.

I don't like to express too many negative thoughts on the forum in case it hinders others but I am really struggling to exist these days. I hang on for my amazing wife and two daughters and as a Christian I think suicide is wrong but I am not sure how much longer I can bear. Let me know how you are doing.

        Hey thanks for your message. Unfortunately the tinnitus has continued worsening regardless of what I do. The only factor that clearly and consistently makes it worse is excessive sound (doesn’t take much). I try to keep as much sound exposure as I can comfortably handle through low level tv, podcasts, and quiet conversation so my sound tolerance doesn’t collapse completely.

      If you can stay off all meds and eat as healthy as possible and control your sound environment entirely for as long as possible. I hope your reactivity goes away and you can have some normal life again. This is hell.

        Considering Travis' experience and BrysonKingMe's experience, I think you would be playing with fire testing out Klonopin. Especially since your tinnitus seems to always spike permanently even from your own cough.

        I could say I'm on the same boat. Sudden ear pressure gave me a whole day of sound distortions (luckily that subsided) and a set of new tones that keep stacking up. That was 2 months ago. Don't know what to do anymore. I'm exhausted

        Can you talk to a GP or psychiatrist? As someone with reactive T and multi-tomes, I would say definitely get some Ativan for this period right now. Who cares about having to withdraw a month or so from now, you’re just trying to make it to the next month.
        I would also discuss an AD that could help you with sleep as well as mood stabilization.

      Hi Theezy, i think the only remedy is time for now. Its pretty weird that T can worsen after a kiss near the ear. Seems like a domino effect with some incidents made it worse. I think we dont know for sure the relation between stress and the fysical impact on the ears, like making it more vulnerable for some normal loud noise exposure??

      Hey I also saw your post too and I'm sorry to hear about your current situation. I'm also going through a very bad time and I know how soul crushing it can be. There is always a chance for even the worst cases to improve though.Just be extra careful to stay away from noise while you're still in the acute stage after a setback and you should get at least a little better eventually even if it takes a few months.

        No problem, I know it's tough. The time after it worsens is definitely the most difficult. I've been going through a setback myself this past month and it's horrible. Chances are it should get somewhat better over time even if it does take a long time.
