I'm not sure what I can do here, because I'm not getting any answers from the medical community in life. I'm in a mindset that my ears are so bad, or so genetically screwed, that I'm going to continue to get worse because it is doing that currently. I had mild T for 7 and half years that didn't change based on going out, or drinking, ect., and last June a wood saw that I awoke to ruined my ears further (Took 5 days later to fully get worse for some reason). Coming up on a year soon I've struggled. I can hardly go out because of H and T seems to get worse with noises in 80-95db range (minor short noises that go into 90's and such) and I don't see any progress, only worsening. I thought around late Jan./Feb there was some progress but since moving it's gone. I've been subjected to loud dog barking in my own room, which goes into mid 90db's at over 10 feet away, constant military jets and helicopters and other noises. I try to protect when I can and sometimes I can't, but even with noises that shouldn't do damage, my T reacts and get's worse. I cannot tell if these are "spikes" because they continue to pop up and drag on until another incident happens, so is it worsening, spiking very long and overlapping, I don't know. But I'm not improving at almost a year and I'm pretty sure that I'm past improvement if a year wasn't enough time, unless these other noise encounters are stifling progress. In the last week alone I had the next door dog bark about 5 feet away near me a few times, which I felt my T elevated for 2 days, then on that 2nd day had military helicopter go over my car directly and felt my left tonal high pitch T go up and then the following day a plate dropped on my wood floors and was very loud, and 3 and half days later I'm still struggling. My fear that it's just going to get worse and having no improvements is causing me severe depression. I'm already unable to enjoy things i used to enjoy because hearing the T makes me sick. I can't adapt to it or ignore it. Even with mild T before it wasn't cutting through everything and making me focus on it. I'm not sure if it's my type of damage and tinnitus or what, but I'm just at a loss. I not only have a high pitch tone that I hear more on left side, but a very hard to mask secondary tinnitus in both that used to be low static which is now higher freq. and louder. I also have a rumbling type tone that I can only hear when it's quiet. On top of that, I have a random vibrating type pulse that popped up in my right ear last year ( before the noise incident) that seems to have came back in full forceafter the plate dropping. In addition, my T seems to temporary from normal noises and even my own voice. If I'm in my 40db ambient area for example, typing on keyboard, talking ect. it makes my T spike right in that moment of noise. After a noise issue that shouldn't even damage my ears, supposedly, my T starts to make misfiring sounds, and go up and down and up making it very inconsistent and bothersome. For being 27 years old and having a handful of noise trauma's that weren't even gun shot levels, this is just mind altering and upsetting. It's one thing to have these things and then to see no progress after a year. No hope and repair to feel a bit better. Just a 30-40% reduction and it's just not happening. From what I can see, there's no ability to see the extent of the damage to hair-cells or neural transmitters correct? The fact I seem to slowly be getting worse, or that noises that shouldn't be damaging in short term exposures are giving continuous elevations and spikes, is just making me mentally tired and feeling like I can't go forward.
