      Does exposure to sunlight have any effect on your hearing?

      Lately I am noticing that after coming back from a walk in the sun I hear sounds lower, dimmer... it's just strange, I don't know why that's happening.

      Lowering your cortisol and burning off excess adrenaline probably.

      I dont know much about cortisol really. It's related to stress, isn't it?

      So exercise lowers it?

      Your adrenals release cortisol, which are part of the stress response.

      Ok I understand. Maybe I should check with an endocrine doctor. I have never visited the endocrine doctor...

      I've been thinking about this lately and am looking forward to the summer when, hopefully, I will go the countryside and the weather will be sunny and warm.

      If it does has a postive effect on my tinnitus and hearing (for whatever reason), I will seriously think about moving my family to warmer climates.

      Obviously weather gives once mood a lift which makes us feel get about yourselves and less anxious in turn may translate into lesser tinnitus. Weather in UK has been great for two weeks - Tinnitus seems just as loud but hyperacusis is a little milder.

      For me it used to feel positive, as I would hear lower and more balanced.

      But after getting a bit of hearing loss due to accidental noise exposure I just want to hear, so I am not so sure this reaction to sunlight and walking is so good. It is just strange to me that hearing can change due to something so simple.

      I am wondering if people of this forum have checked with an endocrine specialists on matters relater to hearing, hyperacusis or tinnitus.

      Do you have fluctuating hearing? I mean, days in which you hear better and others when you hear worse, for no apparent reason?

      My hearing doesn't seem to have been affected which is surprising. Actually today having been running 5 days in a row my hyperacusis has caught up with me and ears are burning and sore. If hyperacusis goes away loud tinnitus may become manageable. This sound seems to mask my tinnitus and calm my Hyperacusis
