      Hi there so I've been dealing with this for a couple years. I think I've had it for a long time but it just got worse its hard to tell what was normal.... I also started getting vertigo around the same time has anyone else experienced that? I can't tollerate certian noises and my left ear is very sensitive to temperature and things like a fan blowing. my husband of course thinks I'm just being difficult so its very frustrating for me to constantly have to defend myself. went to an ENT and everything is "normal" this has caused me a lot of anxiety ugh I don't know what to do.

      I'm sorry you're having these issues recently :(.

      Have you had an MRI, just to rule out anything serious? It might just help to give you some more peace of mind.

      not sure
      Welcome to the forum. Did your ENT rule out Meniere's for your vertigo and tinnitus? If your vertigo is not from it, then perhaps this exercise may help you. This exercise created by a lady MD has helped me but may or may not help you if your type of vertigo is from Meniere's. I did the exercise twice and it healed my BBPV type of vertigo. It never hurts to try it. Here is the link:

      You may have some level of hyperacusis if even fan blowing is hurtful. I had severe H too besides my ultra high pitch T. But over time, H just faded as in the case of many members. So be patient with T. Try to protect from loud noises but not the normal sounds. The ears will take some time to settle for H to fade.T & H combined can be tough but bad time will pass. A few years back I was in a mess with them both. But now I live a normal, productive and absolutely enjoyable life. So keep up the faith things will be better. Here is my success story with some helpful strategies. Check it out if you have time. Be patient. Take care. God bless.
