Anyone have non stop ear pain that fluctuates in intensity? By the end of the day after listening to sounds my ears become totally exhausted. I'm not talking a dull pain, I'm talking like someone sticking an ice pick in my ears. The ringing gets more intense with the pain, also my H gets to the point that I can hardly move, any sound is too much. I don't over protect, but I'm thinking that this may help. My ears take a lot of beatings during the day, TV, people talking loud, dogs barking, car drives, dishes clanging etc etc etc. I take the hits and try not to let is faze me and stay tough. Just wtf is happening? I've lived in pain with loud drilling for 2 years now. Who the f//k would want to live this life. It's complete misery. every time I go to do something I feel like I'm being assaulted. I'm a tough guy and can take a lot but I know I can't do this forever, there is no chance. H goes away? Mine does not!!!! I've done it all, every type of sound therapy, no sound, a mix, I'm at my wits end, I'm starting to become a very angry person. This pain is wearing me down. I don't know what to do anymore, the amount of pain that I take everyday is not normal, it's too much. I'm starting to think that I will be isolated and caged at home like some freak. The real world is beating me down so badly and I'm not cool living in isolation. Everyone thinks that I should just keep taking pain and be positive, I would seriously like to see these people do it. I have to start to make excuses other than my ears so I don't look like a pussy. You can tell people that things are loud but they don't believe you and think that you are just being weak. How do I live like this? Please help me learn to live in pain, isolated and lonely. I don't know how to do this. How do I come up with the will/strength to live this type of life?
