      Ear injury caused by a Q-Tip
      Hi everyone,

      I know it has been a while since I’ve posted or commented here. I just wanted to share something, even if it helps just one person. I posted back in December I believe about using Flomax (Tamulosin) and it got rid of my hyperacusis 100%.

      I know some tried it and it didn’t work. What happened was I took 0.4 mg of Flomax for 14 days to help pass a kidney stone in December. But all of a sudden I realized my hyperacusis, which causes me terrible pain with sound, and a terrible fullness in my inner ear, was gone. Completely.

      After 3-4 months of freedom from hyperacusis, it came back. I was so upset. I ended up getting a prescription for Flomax and trying it to see if that’s what actually helped my ear. I was doubtful and didn’t want to get my hopes up. Last night I took the first pill. Within about 4 hours I realized my hyperacusis was completely gone and still is.

      My hyperacusis and tinnitus were brought on by trauma of the inner ear. I was using a Q-tip and slipped and hit my eardrum. I did not penetrate the eardrum, but I injured it enough to where I have scar tissue on it. I don’t know who this can help, but I would say anyone with hyperacusis needs to try this medication if your doctor allows.

      I now know that it is the Flomax that fixes my hyperacusis. I know the pain and torment of hyperacusis and I desperately wanted to share this with anyone who this might help. I am especially excited for those who may have scar tissue from an injury because that’s my case and this 100% works for me. No matter what your hyperacusis was brought on by, I would try it!

      By the way, I have tinnitus and hyperacusis. Flomax only resolved my hyperacusis. I still have tinnitus. But if I could take a pill to fix one or the other, I would choose to get rid of my hyperacusis. I am overjoyed. Praying for you all.

      I am sorry for those whom it didn’t work for. I remember there were about three or four maybe who tried it. My intention was not to give you or anyone else false hope, but to help anyone I possibly can. Even if that means just one other person is freed from their hyperacusis.

      Does anyone have an idea why this works? I’m curious if it will work for others as well.

      @Jesse Brinck, could you explain your hyperacusis symptoms a bit more? Did you have pain or loudness hyperacusis? Did you have any trigeminal neuralgia like symptoms as well, such as an achy jaw?

      Hey Jesse,

      Could you answer Aaron's question? How are you now with hyperacusis?

      He suffered pain hyperacusis as mentioned in his other thread. It seemed to be constant and worsened by sounds (usual odd frequencies or loud ones). Seems like a bad case of noxacusis.
      I believe there are many chances it could be related to blood hypertension bullying an inflamed ear, thus the blood tension lowering effects of the medication improving it.

      It’s possible but I think we have come to the consensus that it is more likely to do with the relaxation of smooth muscles.

      Jesse, can you please come back to answer a few questions? I asked previously on here whether you had any neuralgia symptoms from sound, such as an achy jaw, and whether Flomax helped with that?
