      Y'all probably know my story around here. Suffered alone in a room not being able to go outside because of crippling hyperacusis.

      I'm all good now and I think psychedelics positively rewired my brain and formed new neural connections.

      I'm a professional musician now, with extra caution against loud noise exposures. I know to tread carefully and now I can use iJoy 4D sound headphones without a problems (60% volume, breaks every so often).

      Good luck to all the sufferers out there. I barely have tinnitus anymore either.

      That’s amazing. Congrats!

      Could you elaborate a little more on the psychedelics?

      Wow that’s quite a major turnaround for you especially when you compare that post of yours on June 22, 2021.

      I believe a congratulations is in order. It’s also comforting to see someone in a better state either through habituation or straight up improvement.

      Godspeed soldier.

      It’s a serotonin boost to see someone improve so drastically.

      Let’s hope we’re also in the universe’s good favor as well!

      I did not see this coming at all. Coming from you that's one hell of a good omen.

      Amazing and heartwarming to read this.

      I have also set my mind to the "brain rewiring" approach to healing the hyperacusis and tinnitus symptoms I experience. For one thing, it sets me in a much more positive headspace and makes me look forward to the cool shit I'll do to feed, refresh, and grow my neurons past the pain. And now seeing that a similar approach has done good things for you... I'm inspired to keep on this track. Thanks for sharing your progress, and I wish you continued improvement!

      EDIT: Would you mind sharing a bit more about whether you took a "microdose" vs. "heavy dose" approach to your healing? I think I recall some discussion of this a while back, which you may have contributed to, but I don't recall the details. Cheers!

      Great success story, congrats!

      Did you also have stabbing/burning pain in your ears, or just loudness hyperacusis?

      Can you give more details about your recovery please? I am not sure how you used psychedelics? Is there a prescription for this?

      Thank you!

      I saw an interesting video sent by a friend about the brain, "Breakthrough with Healing Chronic Pain by Howard Schubiner", anyone can find it on YouTube (seems that I cannot paste the link).

      Recreational tripping on DXM (Robitussin cough syrup) about 10 times, and I now take Zyprexa (mood stabilizer; olanzapine) and Vistriol (anti-anxiety). My theory is hyperacusis is caused by cortisol-induced oxidization, which is why mindfulness activities and psychedelics work so well--because psychedelics are steroids for the brain that force new neuronal connections.

      It's always good to hear recovery stories but head's up everyone - DXM is not classed as a psychedelic drug, it is in fact a dissociative (e.g., Ketamine is a dissociative but not a psychedelic). This should be corrected or made clear.

      Congratulations @weab00. That is great news.

      So when did you start to feel like things were turning around? My improvements began to come on suddenly also around October of 2020 and over the next six months improved extremely quick. Things then slowed down from there and unfortunately just a couple weeks ago I had a hyperacusis setback which I'm hoping clears up soon.

      @weab00, congrats for your recovery. Because you are an inspiration to many of us, can you give more details about your healing process? For example I saw that in April you were not better.

      We know that you suffered for a long time and we are very happy and inspired to see that.

      Some of us just wish you would be more descriptive because we are very curious what worked for you with as much details as possible, when we read a success story.

      Thank you.
