Hello everyone I am looking for help, I am a little (much) helpless. I will explain my story in broad outline. I am 28 years old, I live in France. Since I was little I have a strong myopia until my adolescence no major worries, until 3 retinal detachment in a few years. So much to say that with all this I became anxious as it affects the health .. November 2016, the 2 most exactly. I started hearing a rather shrill whistle in the left ear. In the 7500hz according to my memories. For the cause? I remember to listen to music with my headphones (if I could go back at that time and fuck me slaps!) It was pretty rare anyway. May be 1 or 2 times in the week and less than an hour and a half. I also had a big crisis of anxiety a few days before. Impression of dying and the sky falling on my head! (Just writing these lines I have the ball to the belly and a feeling of strangulation in the throat). Period quite black .. in January I started to go out with a girl who nevertheless helped me to no longer focus on it. My tinnitus for me had become bearable, I resumed taste for life. I walked in the street, I even no longer hear my tinnitus! I was always listening to music with headphones but mid-volume without ever feeling the slightest embarrassment. In the meantime I separated from my girlfriend. And I resumed a life of bachelor without too much concern, my tinnitus had become very bearable. Some time they were a little stronger especially sitting or lying down. End it all went well. Early July my parents left on holiday I have to go home. No license. So I go by bus, then 1.5kms on foot. Always with my headphones set to mid-volume. I stay down two days and I go on foot with some luggage (backpack, and a little less than 5kg in each arm) I go home and not worry. I just "locked" the shoulder by turning the head but not very painful. I continue what I had to do. The following days I felt that my tinnitus was much more present even when being busy. I began to worry, mini crisis of anxiety. And the more days pass and the more I feel that the sounds instantly increase my tinnitus already strident. It resonates in my head like stunned. So I started to learn about hyperacusis. I read all day and night. I fall asleep at about 8:00 in the evening to wake up around 4:00 am. Always with anguish and palpitations. Impossible to go back to sleep. I watch series on the tablet but a quarter of the volume plus I increase and more ca resonates. I also feel a cottony ear but not all the time. This will be 2 weeks soon and I am completely lost. I did not have any sound trauma (headphones?) I also noticed a heavy noise in my head when walking walking or turning my head left or right. But that disappears by looking up. Maybe it has no relation .. I'm so afraid: '(live with tinnitus I can but with that sensitivity to sound rotten life .. not being able to listen to music or chat it's sad . What do you think? Is that hyperacusis and can it go away? How long? Which strategy to use? (No more headphones!) Sorry for bad english Thank you!
