      Can people with severe hyperacusis trade their hearing to get rid of it? I know that this is not necesarly the case with tinnitus, but what about hyperacusis? Does anyone know?

      I would not wish deafness on anybody. I am 75% deaf. Total deaf in one ear and I can't use sound to help relax.
      I have had T for many years and could play relaxing sounds that would help me sleep, I woke up one morning about 6 months ago with most of my hearing gone. Took 4 months to see the ear doctor and he said nothing could be done.
