      I would say take breaks when using hearing protection. Wearing ear muffs the whole day through every day might make you more sensitive to sounds

      X 2. I used to have bad hyperacusis so much so that I had to wear ear plugs all the time. But like mmacabre, forum members advised me to be careful with developing sound sensitivity with too much ear protection. So I took off the ear plugs slowly and now my H is gone. Thanks goodness.
