      Excessive loud noise
      Hello. I have bad ringing in my left ear but thankfully just ringing. I'm a year in a half in and have no H. Extremely loud sounds don't hurt at all. They're just loud. Note I dont listen to loud music anymore but have encountered loud noises here and there.

      Has anyone on here started out with T only and had H come along later?

      Thanks

      Yes, i got T in 99 and was 200% habituated and lived a normal life until 2013 when I developed severe H with no apparent cause.

      Yes. I just had T but then listened to one of those binary binaural beat videos and increased my T and caused H, fullness, tweaking and other crap. Binaural Beats are evil.

      long term NIHL and recent acoustic trauma
      For noise related causes, T is caused by whacked hair cells then a few days later the nerves get damaged - as per study - so H and hearing loss/ distortion gets worse in a delayed manner but it's not going to take months rather days or a week or two to get to the peak .
      Then nerves get better and H improves and sound as well but T stays unless it's mild enough so that brain can switch it off.

      So you just woke up one day and some sounds were painful? Without warning signs?

      No, it sneaked up on me and developed ove a couple of weeks/a month maybe. But I had been experiencing TTS spasms in response to certain louder sounds sporadically before. Maybe that was a warning sign but those always went away as soon as they came and I didn't even knew there was such a thing as H even so I didn't give it much thought. But now I think I've always had mild H as long as I had T actually. I think Dr. Richard Salvi is right in his theory that everyone with T also got H, just that the majority has it in such a mild form they don't even know it. There's also a brazilian study that strenghtens Salvi's theory.

      does his theory support that H fades and T doesn't?, @lapidus ?

      Reasonably I didn't know it, (or even know what it was!), but I had H in my left ear for a few days before T set in. The sensitivity lasted like 2 months. It's gotten light years better since I stopped using foam ear plugs everywhere, and switched to 9bd reduction custom molds for the train / the bar if its necessary. Even in these cases I only typically protect the ear that was sensitive now to facilitate conversation.

      I have no clue. I don't think he mentioned anything about that.
