      For 2 weeks I didn’t feel any hyperacusis symptoms and I was almost sure that I was already cured, but for some reason for the past 2 days I got a minor setback. My hyperacusis is not bad, but I’m still upset that my hyperacusis came back.

      I’m also experiencing pain in the jaw, cheeks and temples. I get relief when I take hot baths for some reason.

      Has anyone that’s been cured from hyperacusis, experienced this??

      From what I've heard around the internet, even people who have recovered still experience setbacks. We'll never get back to 100% because we have at least some form of hearing damage. But it seems that those who have recovered bounce back from a setback faster.

      @Red thanks for replying. I believe that my t&H is caused from jaw, and neck and muscle issues.

      Maybe it has to be with a contracture or muscle cramp that irradiates. It could even be some issue with neck, shoulders or back. Have you been to a physiotherapist?

      @Juan i have not. But I have been to a chiropractor, and I ordered a mouth guard from my dentist, cause apparently I’ve been clenching my jaw, and thats causing stress on my jaw, neck, and ear muscles, cause I’m constantly over working them. I hope it works

      This is an issue having to do with TMJ. I also have bruxism and TMJ issues. @threefirefour has TMJ issues and upon getting a brace for his jaw, his tinnitus is almost completely gone.

      @Adriel93 @JuneStar It seems like you guys have something similar to me, which has to do with TMJ. I also start feeling better and sound sensitivity isn't that bad, but when my TMJ flares up my jaw, ears and head hurt and my sound sensitivity sky rockets. As i mentioned above, @threefirefour has solved his issue by seeing a dentist for a brace.
      Something to look into!

      By addressing an issue that causes T & H, it won't help T & H? That doesn't make much sense.

      Many users who have TMJ problems have helped their T & H when they addressed it.

      Please refrain from comments that have no scientific basis as they can be detrimental to some people.

      @Jack Straw I appreciate you for taking the time and comment on here. Also thanks for the info. Let’s hope this fucking mouth guard works lol

      @ozgeA I think it can work as well. Do you have a mouth guard as well?

      @uae96 thanks for shooting my hopes down lol

      Sorry I didn’t mean to put your hopes down, but if you’re going to get it mainly to try to get your hyperacusis and tinnitus down then don’t hope too much, get it to treat your pain and clenching and hope just hope for your tinnitus and hyperacusis to get better as a secondary

      I got the same back in 2016, these guards are uncomfortable to wear and cost a lot

      @uae96 no worries man. I understand... I noticed that when I have facial pain, headaches and jaw pain, due to me clenching my jaw, that’s when my H gets bad. So if my mouth guard will help me to relax my muscles, I’m sure I’ll be decent..

      Did you not find your mouth guard useful?

      This is exactly my situation too! My sound sensitivity gets so bad when I am clenching my jaw unintentionally from stress. Do you grind your teeth?

      @Jack Straw no, I do not just clench my teeth. I clench while I sleep, and even during the day. I don’t notice that I clench during the day,but I’ve caught myself clenching plenty of times.

      Do you use a mouth guard?

      Folks - you can all self-cure TMJ by curing Bruxism.
      I had it for 20 years, with severe temporal pain.
      I thought I must have a brain tumor.
      My therapist cured me, essentially with one session.
      I will pm the method if you ask for it folks.

      Hey Jazzer, please let us know what the cure is. I have also suffered with Tinnitus, Hyperacusis and TMJ since September 1995. I was a rock musician that played in clubs and used half stack tube amps on stage at fairly hi volume.
      I did this over a 15 year period. In September 1995 I woke one night at 3am with bad ringing in my ears (Tinnitus) that never went away since. With that I also got hyperacusis and TMJ. Over the years its gotten less painful but I have bouts where it kicks up and it takes months to get better. Right now I'm suffering with it again. I think I re-damaged my hearing and its painful. I wake up with headaches alot and have to take medication to get thru the day. I also have to stay away from loud sounds so I don't start clenching my jaw and getting headaches from that.
      I know there has got to be a cure for this but yet to find one. I went to a TMJ specialist and he recommended a mouth splint to wear for 6 months day and night. It was really expensive so I couldn't do that. Not sure what to do but I got to find some kind of relief or cure...

      Hi Anthony
      I am so sorry mate.
      I am sorry for every one of us with this accursed condition.
      If I had a magic wand, we would all be well right now?

      I have been a professional jazz trombonist since 1962 until May 2018, 56 years, but had to fold my career this summer.
      I was first call for five bands.

      I had mild ‘T’ from 1992 until 2014, no real problem to me at all, but then after one very loud gig, absolute Hell on Earth.
      Severe for over four years now.

      I suppose ‘active despair’ has gradually given way to a form of ‘passive acceptance.’

      But to answer your question re: Bruxism, I will paste my notes on how to cure it in the next post below.

      @Anthony Negrini

      I had TMJ pain for years until seeing a very good therapist, who taught me this method, which I adopted, and never had TMJ again.
      It must become your new habit though, for life.

      Become a “Soft Mouth Jaw Hanger.”

      I haven’t closed my gob in over 20 years !!

      Hope it can help you bud.
      If only Tinnitus could be cured so easily.

      Best wishes

      How to cure stress.
      How to stop teeth grinding. (Bruxism.)
      Bruxism results from stress held in the mouth.
      It is a fighting response to tension and anxiety.
      It feeds both of these aspects.
      I have to tell you that relaxation of mind and body is not possible like this.
      You have to address this sooner or later.
      It is relatively easy to correct this problem.
      Given that we have Tinnitus, relaxation and meditation are still possible.
      ———————————————
      ** How to approach deep relaxation.

      Sit quietly in your chair,
      Assume the demeanour of a baby.
      With your lips closed, allow your jaw to hang comfortably loose, your teeth apart.
      Allow the inside of your mouth to relax and go quite quite soft.
      Allow your throat to soften.
      Become aware that your tongue is now floating in water.
      Just continue with your gentle breathing
      - become an observer to your breathing,
      - your tongue gently floating in water.

      *(As a habit for life, try to become aware of where your tongue is - it should always be floating gently in water, never pushed up against the roof of your mouth.
      Teeth should close only when eating!)
