      even if my tinnitus and hearing loss were cured I would spend the rest of my life advocating for a cure for pain hyperacusis.

      bio-medical research is far more important then "lets hope it goes away"

      How long did the TTTS take to resolve? My feeling is that on days with low Tinnitus the TTTS happens more often and vice versa. My ear is moving a few times a day. This cannot be just a brain thing.

      I think the brain is telling the tensor typani to be hypersensitive to prevent further hearing damage.

      Phantom limb syndrome is accompanied by muscle spasms in the immediate area around the lost limb, TTTS is also a muscle spasm. That's another clue.

      These seem to be two separate hypotheses, as muscles spasms in the case of missing limbs doesn't seem a defense mechanism.

      I was thinking the same exact thing, maybe a peripheral defense mechanism becomes central over time?

      How would tensing muscles help a recent amputee, prevent blood loss?

      not sure...

      @Contrast Also, another thing, IF this hypothesis is true it would be interesting to think about why TTTS occurs more often in people who already have aural damage, really. Is it simply because the brain is now more aware that loud noise can damage? Or, is it perhaps an indication that people with damage are more susceptible to further damage than normal people are to damage of an equal quantity? Interesting to think about and try to examine using Occam's Razor.

      I get that you're being sarcastic or whatever but literally you need to just ignore ENTs when they say idiotic sh!t like that, they're literally clueless arrogant bastards with degrees, is all, thank you for coming to my TED talk.
