      My hyperacusis has been basically gone since a couple nights ago, except when I'm lying down. And this relief in that symptom was brought about by an increase in dizziness.

      Lying down/sleep seems to be a trigger for changing/worsening symptoms.

      What is going on?

      How long did you have H for? Did it just go away suddenly or did it go little by little?

      Wow that is strange. I am sorry to hear about your dizziness. At least I do not have that and little tinnitus luckily.

      So many mysteries about hyperacusis.... I have had it 22 years, and I am still baffled by all sorts of things, like why I sometimes get worse for no discernable reason, and sometimes get much better when I thought I would not. Why tinny sounds from cheap TVs or radios or portable phones bother me so much, worse than a truck passing by me sometimes. A year and a half ago, just listening to the sounds from my TV for 3 minutes sent me into a horrific 6 month setback. But the ol' ears always get better if you manage to be patient and ber careful.

      Good luck.

      Had it for about 2 weeks. I started tolerating stuff better, but I wasn't sure if it was because I was just learning to tolerate the sensation or what.

      But this was fairly sudden, I guess. I woke up on Tuesday and felt like crap with dizziness, but when I took a shower, I noticed I wasn't getting the fullness sensation in my ear the way I had every time prior. It seemed like the problems had shifted sinus cavities or something to where my ear was now fine now my balance was more affected.

      I still get some subtle moments where I feel something in my ear when hearing sound when I'm lying down, but for now the hyperacusis seems to have mostly resolved.

      The dizziness mostly goes away after I get up and everything; it's just when I first wake up and try to get up that I feel really dizzy.

      I'm just worried it's going to get worse, or the hyperacusis will return.

      I know it's been a while since this was posted, but it caught my eye. My problem started off (the first few weeks) with very bad dizziness and minor hyperacusis. Right now, my dizziness is essentially gone, but my hyperacusis is very bad. Did your dizziness go away? Do you know what was going on?

      Daily reminder that hyperacusis is not a specific diagnosis. The word hyperacusis refers to various unclassified inner ear/audiotory disorders that are very poorly scientific researched not much understood by anyone.

      For example hyperacusis defined as "noise induced pain" is not the same thing as "noises sounding abnormally loud" or "facial paraylsis from noise". ENT's often carelessly group all hyperacusis patients in the same boat. Thus popular treatments like TRT show variously mixed results.

      Anyone who calls themself a hyperacusis expert/specialist is delusional.
