      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Acoustic Trauma from Microsuction
      Since getting tinnitus/hyperacusis following a microsuction procedure in 2016 my ears are so fragile and react to the slightest noise. In 3 years since the onset both my hearing and my tinnitus loudness has worsened.

      Yesterday whilst at a friend's house her pet bird tweeted loudly (very high pitched) and immediately I experienced loud fleeting tinnitus in my left ear. This lasted maybe 10-15 seconds. Straight after this I started to get burning in my ear, twitching and numbness in my face and a pain in my head. The bird was at least 5-10 metres away from me when it tweeted! How can this cause such havoc with my ears and central nervous system?

      Today I've had extra loud buzzing in my ear and head, but also cold, numbness and tingling in my face along with some pains in my forehead. I'm guessing this is related to nerve damage but how can such a minor incident cause all of this?

      After the microsuction caused acoustic shock/trauma in 2016 I had extreme pain and burning in my ears, face, neck and shoulders. I'm now 3 years down the line and although the hyperacusis is not as painful, it's clear my ears can't cope with many everyday noises.

      At least you recognize the problem is cochlear neuropathy.

      No one can help you sadly, yet.

      I experienced this, literally from Nov2017-Jan 2018 before I was even on the forum, it went into remission which confused me.

      I know your pain, it's something no one wants to talk about.

      Decibel Therapeutics and Otonomy are where it's at since they are addressing synapse and nerve damage in the cochlea.

      Why do some people with noxacusis get better while others get worse, and some stay the same for 15-20 years?

      Why is this not being researched actively as if humanity depended on it?

      I'm sorry to hear that... I'm having a lot of cooling/burning in my ears and face. I'm presuming more nerve damage. How are you doing? Was it a bird that caused your recent problems?

      Blue28 my ears can't cope with everyday noise either. Nearly 2 years into this. I have to wear musician's earplugs 12 hours a day. I take them out a few hours before bedtime. Your ears need rest like mine. Hope you feel better.
