      Tinnitus Since:
      05/2017 (H since 06/2017)
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      long term noise exposure (headphones), maybe some stress.
      Yeah, are we?

      I've been pretty dizzy today and feeling nauseous in a way I haven't felt at any point during my 3½ years with these conditions. I'm afraid I might be developing Meniere's :(

      Christmas Eve yesterday was pretty bad to get through as my ear pain was prominent.

      I don't know if the ear pain/noxacusis is the cause of this dizziness.

      Tinnitus Since:
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Loud music/headphones/concerts - Hyperacusis from motorbike
      I’ve noticed my balance is not what it used to be since my acoustic trauma and definitely worse since hyperacusis/noxacusis. It doesn’t affect me much on a day to day basis but I know something is different. I’ve also had 1-2 occasions behind the wheel in the last few months where I’ve felt really sick/nauseous all of a sudden but then it passes.

      No idea if there’s a link to Meniere’s or if hearing loss, regardless of cause, causes balance problems?

      Tinnitus Since:
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      some good mf music
      I do not see a mechanism for why that'd be the case.

      Tinnitus Since:
      Summer 2020
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      A curse
      Pre-hyperacusis, I was always prone to motion sickness since I went on some spinny ride when I was 8 years old. I once had a bout of vertigo from sea-sickness that lasted a week as a teenager. Migraines here and there too, but nothing chronic. My last serious bout of vertigo was in my early 20s during an ear infection. Outside of that? Really nothing.

      I recall a week or two after I developed H I did feel a bit off balance. After that though, not so much.

      I took a very long drive to move recently. After about a week of being there, I had a horrible, 48-hour battle with vertigo just from rolling over in bed one morning too quickly. Never had that happen to me before.

      I'm about 99.5% better now but still have some issues. Not so much balance as sensitivity to light and that sort of thing. I have to be super careful when rolling over in bed though and I am sleeping with a maternity pillow for the time being.

      I don't know if it's possible for things in the ears to get knocked out of place and become more out of whack or what. I've been reassured by a few others it was only temporary, but I still can't help but think my rotten ears are to blame.
