      Hi all, does car door slams causes spikes anyone's tinnitus?

      For me it just feels TOO loud. I have to wear ear plugs when I close the car door. I think it's around 94 dB when we close the car door.

      I've noticed that mine tends to do that as well. I tend to feel the pressure change. It's very quick - but it's something that I just noticed since I got H.

      I just try and shut the door a bit more quietly and I seem to be ok.

      I've been told that it really can't do any damage, and it doesn't cause me any pain in my ears really. Long as I'm not slamming it REALLY hard or anything

      if someone sneezes it bothers me at times, the two year old in the house sometimes screams in joy, my ears go weeeeeee... :p but its not every day for me.. i guess our hearing is very sensitive .. esp affected by cold/stress/ and what not..
      it might be a clue that underlying cause maybe active or chronic inflammation.

      Different tones, including car doors slamming really bother me too, but some don't.

      Here's a story about a guy with an acute sensory problem some of you might be able to relate to a little, it's by Edgar Allen Poe, and a movie was made out of it staring Vincent Price.
      Here's a summary incase you're intrested.
