        That's great that you live in a fairly quiet area; sure beats me living at a busy intersection in a big city, haha. And yes - the motorbikes are the worst! Big part of why I stopped going on walks when it started to get warmer out.

        I'm in an apartment too, & I have family that comes by to help me. It would be really tough not having that help.

        Does your apartment have a fire alarm speaker? As in one connected to the building's alarm system (not simply a smoke detector)? I have one & I'm terrified of it going off!

        My apartment do not have a alarm connected to the building's alarm. I would also be terrified if I had one.

        I can feel how it feels really tight in the ear and you really want to stretch it out, but you can't. This feeling increases when I am exposed to sound. If I tilt my head to the side and sort of try to stretch the ear, I can often hear sounds that sound like bones clicking in the ear.

        I hope you are doing okay despite the circumstances.

        @TheFriendlyGhost Sounds like you may have some central sensitization going on (thinking about your 'touch' symptoms). Also , cutlery hitting plates is the worst! I use plastic cutlery for this reason, & although it's still not ideal, it definitely makes a difference, so thought I'd share!

        I had an appointment to see Dr. Timothy Hain next week (he's a neuro-otologist that's been talked about on TT before) but they canceled my appointment b/c I'm on government insurance and said it was illegal for them to accept cash payment from me. Waited almost 3 months for the appointment...

        I understand that you don't want to be in the apartment in the city if a train is passing by every five minutes. Sleeping with ear protection is no fun either. I try to avoid it. Also, my tinnitus sounds 3 times louder with hearing protection.

        Sad to hear that your appointment with Dr. Timothy Hain was cancelled. Is there any way you can get a new appointment? I'm not familiar with how it works in the US.
