      Hi, I eat alot of broccoli and extra magnesium tablets, and I feel a big difference in my hyperacusis. Someone else with the same experience?

      I took magnesium citrate for a long time and it didn't do anything to help me. Waste of money.

      It's hard to say, I think you have to hit it from all sides, supplements, regular exercise, sleep, good clean diet, relaxation techniques, collectively I think all of this can reduce H but resolve it? Probably not.
      The one I haven't really tried enough yet is using white/pink/brown noise daily, I've dabbled in it but not in a structured way really.
      My H is not severe and I can generally tolerate it ok on most days, but I would of course like to be rid of it or reduce it more and I think the white/pink/brown noise apps are the missing link, that hopefully will bring me from 20/25% reduction in H, to 50% or 75% or even eliminate it completely, here's hoping.

      I think the placebo effect is often what is really at work with a lot of these supplements. That's not meant as a negative BTW. It can work as a form of management, and if it does for anyone they should pursue it and not think too hard about it.

      I take magnesium all the time as a neuro supplement and to help relax tight muscles. In general, it is needed in the body to calm and over-excited nervous system. So, from that super basic standpoint, it could be beneficial for some forms of hyperacusis.

      I haven't seen an effect on hyperacusis directly but then again I have not experienced hyperacusis nearly as frequently as I used to.

      Who knows? I know that magnesium is good for the inner ears and brain health in general, so I would say stay on it at a supplementary level in any case.

      It's called OptiMag Neuro. It's an mg supplement designed to cross the blood brain barrier. You may need to get this via prescription; I am not sure if it is available off the counter.
