      So I have a little Yorkie and West highland terrier and the Westies bark is so loud. Loud noises don't exactly cause pain in my ears anymore more so irritation. Cause loud noises such as the dog barking seem much louder than they used to be.

      Anyways the dog barked and my hearing is distorted. My problem with it is obvious the hearing is distorted but also dog barking shouldn't be enough (from a few barks) to damage my ears. Which is really concerning to me.

      Part of me isn't sure if it's in my head or not. Since I'm now beginning to become scared of loud noises in the fear they'll hurt my hearing more.

      I do know what you mean.
      I don't have hyperacusis, but I find some noises don't hurt my ears, but make me cringe as they seem loud... can't work out if this is what I would have experienced pre-tinnitus but not given it a second thought
      but now loud noises scare me, or whether I have a very mild sensitivity to sound....

      Go wouldn't call it hypercasusis simply because of the distortion.
