      Tinnitus Since:
      i posted in a previous thread my story with tinnitus returning at a louder volume then in the passed (see link below) and 3 days into its return-just when is was ready to start rallying myself to habituating from tinnitus like i did in my first go round-my hyperacusis returned and im wondering if there's a way t habituate to it like i did for a while with tinnitus.
      my hyperacusis is basically a whistling after affect of pretty much any noise i hear-especially ones that are even remotely loud, but some low sounds too-which came and went on and off for about 6 months in my first go round with tinnitus and then went away.
      and no, i havent been around any really loud noises since august.
      being that i have no way to know if it will go away or not, is there a way to habituate to it?
      please help me.

      (here is my story with tinnitus for those who missed it )

      This doesn't look like hyperacusis, more diplacusis.

      I have had this. To me it is a form of reactive T. For example if a dog barks, you'll hear "woof /beep", almost as the T sound is layered in with it.
      For me this passed but my T is quite reactive lately.

      I understand all too well. My T seems to be getting worse daily.

      it seems like every remote noise has a whistling effect to it now
