Looking back, I couldn't even ride a bus with ease but I can now. The beep stop sound doesn't bother me much now. Nov 10, 2019

        Apparently overprotection like listening to TV super quiet and wearing earplugs were the problems. I only use an earmuff now

        To the extent that you can, try to minimize the number of pills that you take...

        Based on what I read on this forum, it is my understanding that one could get addicted. As time goes on, one needs to increase the dosage to achieve the same effect. If one gets addicted, it is hard to break the habit - withdrawal is torturous.

      I should've listened to Jazz music with earbuds when I was 15, not loud rock music like Linkin Park or Marilyn Manson.

        I don't think that would have mattered much, most music is produced to have the simillar frequency content. Volume and type of headphones matter more

        Try not to worry about it. In the end, it doesn’t even matter.

      Getting tested to get a doctor diagnose me as hyperacusis so that I can have my English tests elsewhere with a quite speaker.

      Who takes antipsychotics? Does this help you dealing with hyperacusis or at least phonophobia?

      Another series of big noise exposure and one of them was in outside in the night. I had a tinnitus spike and numbness in the right ear.

        And also a horrible distortion in the sound I hear. It went fine but it's so sad there is not a one thing I can control.

      I have noticed recently that sounds make me to be startled. Especially when I hear sounds at an unexpected moment and relaxing.

      I suspect my hyperacusis arose from being in a quite environment for years.
      1. victoria9273
        victoria9273
        The apartment where I live is newly built and when you're not opening the window it's very quite. There are big roads besides here so we nearly didn't open the window at all for about 4 years except for about 30 minutes for ventilation. I wonder this has caused my condition to become worse?

        First onset of hyperacusis happened after I moved here for 6 months. Because of the fear, wearing earplugs when going out became a natural thing. Not much noise exposure and could it be possible that this sorely is the cause? I'll have to open them at least 5 hours a day for 4 months and see what happens.

        Otherwise, I resort to earplugs

    Hello. I suffer from hyperacusis and am an avid lover of Jazz music. I like English language and literature and Wuthering Heights and Crime and Punishment are my delight.

    Very interested in how the world goes around me. I want to know it's mechanisms and interesting facts.

    I play video games. My favourite games are Left4Dead2(has been a consolation when I first got to high school.), Bioshock1(game-play wise, though it gets loose and boring in the last 2 chapters) and Thief2.

    I hope to write a fiction someday, only to be read and entertained by me. Why not start with a technical one, such as detective stories?

    Hyperacusis for about 6 years or so.:eek: I already was afraid of loudness of the piano as a child and would always use the damper pedal. I like quiet places and take a bus but still, riding a subway without my earmuff is out of the question. Hyperacusis gets better, I think, but only very slowly so that you cannot notice it.
