      To elucidate the spirit of this post further, Elon Musk wants maximum attention and engineering credit for his successes. He probably cares more about that than money, although, they are deeply interconnected.

      Tinnitus Since:
      1993, increase in 2020, then new in 2021
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Maybe during a soundcheck – sudden sound from speaker
      I guess you're right, but while I'm with people and their fascination for space I think hearing and especially music that "gets to your mind" is one of the most awesome experiences one can have as a human being – I think many (most?) people agree on that. So "fixing" or improving this is something that means the world (and space?) to people.

      My tears ran when I listened to a couple of songs I like post high frequency hearing-loss loss and accompanying tinnitus – not the same nuance in the high frequencies. :(

      Fixing this and hopefully in the same time getting rid of tinnitus associated with the hearing- should be concidered sexy indeed! :)

      I was hoping the music industry would get involved at a certain point. They seem to go hand and hand...

      Doing concert photography
      This is something I've wondered too. Soooo many artists have tinnitus, yet very few speak out about it. And when they do, it's usually because it's too severe for them to continue making music.

      I'm also confused as to how more people in the music industry don't have hyperacusis? Especially since people continue to wear headphones, go to shows, etc., after developing tinnitus. It makes me feel crazy because I've done nothing but protect my ears, avoid headphones, listen on monitors at safe volumes, and my tinnitus is getting worse.

      They embrace the suck until they can't. I read of a guy who now has hearing distortion finally and he can't really do crowds anymore.

      Everyone's hearing is different and will degrade at different rates. Bad genes and a few rock concerts and here I am... Some people with good genes can hit thousands of rock concerts and have no issues. Eventually we all get older and will feel it eventually. Most people don't care until they get it.

      Isn’t it suspected that it is neck and/or jaw injury/dysfunction that creates the environment for hyperacusis? Others without this condition just get hearing loss

      There is an article in the hyperacusis section about it. I personally think the theory might be correct.

      acoustic trauma
      That didn't seem to be the case for me. My sensation of hyperacusis is definitely fading now after 6 months since it set in, following exposure to loud sound that also resulted in tinnitus. Seems only sound-induced, plus whatever stress I was under at that time (pre-COVID-19-vaccine, pandemic, early career scientist, what's there to be stressed about?).

      When I first got tinnitus, I got hyperacusis to go along with it. The stress of having tinnitus was too much for me. Lots of anxiety... That will cause hyperacusis as well. As I got used the the tinnitus, the hyperacusis slowly went away.

      My daughter has lots of anxiety and has hyperacusis to go along with it. She has little to no hearing loss. The theory is you feel anxiety and your body turns up the senses so you can hear the danger better. I guess it was useful for hearing predators a long long time ago. If your hyperacusis is the result of this, it will go away in time if you can get your anxiety under control. If it is due to neck/jaw issues, it probably won't.

      Last time I spoke with Justin from Hough Ear Institute he told me they think that their pill will help with reducing inflammation of the inner ear as well as tinnitus. I hope HEI gets their act together for this pill. We’ll see soon if they are telling the truth.

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Noise exposure? Possible concussion? Covid Vaccine? TMJ?
      You know I really think this is true for some people. I was told by the ENT that diagnosed my TMJ that my hyperacusis is likely related to my TMJ which was present when I got tinnitus and she said that a noise trauma can trigger these symptoms when TMJ is present but they can improve when it is treated. She said something about most ear pain especially in young people not being related to the ears and that TMJ also had a tendency to cause nerve inflammation and irritation in the ears therefore contributing to hyperacusis to some degree.

      It turned out my chiropractor has a lot of experience treating TMJ and as soon as I started getting that treated by him along with my neck it took some off the edge of my hyperacusis although it didn't cure it by any means. It also made my ear pain a little less intense although it is still very much present.
