      I’m absolutely dreaded.. no idea what happened, but all sounds, like a car passing by or a sound of refrigerator, have a high pitch undertone to it. Even sitting in the room with electrical appliances is torture! Feels like my ear catches electrical humming all the time. If I plug my ears I hear only my own tinnitus, but once I unplug.. oh god.

      Also when I speak it feels like my Eustachian tubes open and cannot close - all sounds along with air pushes everything inside of the ear and i can total hear myself speaking loudly! And tinnitus itself spiked like crazy..

      Went to ENT who said I have a regular ETD along with autophony which led to a sound distortion. The doctor put me on steroid spray for 3 months for a start... any ideas? I m used to my T, but this sound distortion is killing me! Did it go away for some?
      Thanks for any insight!

      Yes! But it took around 3 months... had a VERY noisy flight yesterday, so it seems that sensitivity returned a bit, but I don’t focus on this anymore.

      Damn. Mine started four days ago. I get this weird whistling around certain noises and when the noise stops so does the whistling.
      It's making me very anxious

      I know, it’s super frustrating. But just try not to focus. I must say that I just woke up one day, forgot to check on a sound to see if it’s still there, and later realized that it’s not.

      Do you take anything like Flonase? I have to say that I used it for 3 months as prescribed, and things got lot better when I stopped using it (although initially I was advised Flonase to get rid of the distortion).

      I have been givin a nasel spray and drops about three days ago (Friday) the day after this all started. The night it started I had taken magnesium in the form of a powder (mixed it with water) and I'd never done that before. So maybe it's that I'm not really sure?
      The sound I'm hearing isn't even in my ears it sounds so like its coming from the actual source. (Car.. washing machine.. the pipes above my bed) it's so distressing. Im really hoping it stops because this just isn't nice at all and I didn't think I'd ever say it but... I miss my old T I'm only 7 weeks into this tinnitus stuff and I'm so scared.

      Yes, it was absolutely the same for me - a noise was so real and felt like it was coming from a real source. Even flushing a toilet was a torture (sorry!). And I also prayed for having just my ordinary T back.

      I know easier said than done, but don’t worry and treat it as... as my husband said - I also can hear things if I try to, but I don’t react to them as you do. So even after my distortion subsided I can see how my ears managed to catch these distortions (I can somewhat “catch” the sound if I try to), but I no longer listen to them, therefore I do not hear them at all. Too complicated maybe, but that’s the only way I can put it. Don’t worry and I’m sure it will go away. I know unfortunate cases here, but mine seems like a positive one (knock on a wood!). So will be yours

      And believe me it was BAD. Sometimes I wanted just to shut everything down and put myself into a soundproof cabin. I hated watching TV, especially when a background music was coming, because that was the most whistling part. But I kept watching and telling myself that this will pass, I will get used to it. And after 3 months distortions are just gone

      I personally don’t see any difference except for increased ringing and sensitivity to sounds. Which as I said subside after withdrawal. So :dunno:

      Hello Asia88

      I know it's been a long time since you logged in. Hopefully you will see this and let me know how it's been since we last heard from you. I recently had this start occurring, would help to know long term from someone that's been through it. Do you try to protect yourself in noisy places?

      I am going through a very bad spike right now and I am experiencing severe sound distortion. I have had dysacusis since June of 2019, but it fluctuates. Periods of time it's very tolerable, but other times its absolutely unbearable, like now.

      Protect your ears right now from noisy places as much as possible, but don't overprotect. It will likely die down. I am hoping mine dies down again, my dysacusis elevated back to a severe level last Thursday with noise exposure and extreme stress. Stress definitely makes it much worse.

      Thank you for the encouragement. It's been very rough with the sound distortion. I can handle the T but D is so much worse. I hope it does die down. I wish yours does too.

      Sometimes, listening to this YouTube neuromodulation sound helps with the sound distortion, like this one:

      4 Hours of High Pitched Tinnitus...


      I sleep with a fan on for noise but with dysacusis the high pitch whistling that overlays the fan can be unbearable and I found that playing that sound quietly at the same time sometimes helps. This is just me though, you may need to look around YouTube and see if you find a particular sound therapy that helps you.

      re you guys still dealing with this? I have had it for about a month and a half and it is definitely worse than my baseline tinnitus. It often gives me the feeling of nails on a chalkboard, like my ears are being tickled. Really praying it will stop - I've just applied for a medical leave of absence from my job because it has gotten so bad...
