      Has anyone had steroids help with hyperacusis spikes and/or have them reduce the pain and sensitivity?

      I'm literally in pain from every single noise. My hyperacusis has worsened severely over the past two weeks.

      I don't even know how I could get to the hospital without even further destroying my ears, but I have Lyme disease/benzo withdrawal/IBS/awful neuro symptoms I need to see doctors for so I'm not healthy and able to just hermit for years, plus this has never gotten better, only worse, and I live with my parents who do not understand and won't let me just lay here for that long doing nothing.

      Maybe they might even find and/or treat an underlying cause.

      It feels like a long shot but right now it seems like that, or suicide, so anyone think steroids might have a chance of helping?

      Several causes
      My ENT recommended Deflazacort 30 mg, 1 pill every morning, for a few days. Give it a try for 3 - 5 days and see if it helps.
