      Tinnitus Since:
      hello Dr. Nagler,

      i have tinnitus for over 2 years it never bothered me untill last 5 months i experienced tension around my neck and numbness in my cheek and around the ear.
      my ear flutters on my own voice 70% of the time dishes and high sounds but when im in a noise environment 70-80 dbs it stops flutters and i barely notice it, my T react to all kinds of sounds it never did before i got these new symptoms.
      i went to see a ENT and audiologist the did a hearing test and LDL test the results were that i have a hearing from a 10 year old im 30 now and no hearing loss they did they hearing test till 8khz. my LDLS are between 90-110 so i was shocked with this results

      can anyone tell me why i cant stand dishes and women voices and even my own voice and why my left ear and right ear clicks and give me anxienty
      in 2 months i start with TRT but im not sure it will work for me cause i alrdy have habutate my T for 90%

      thx jonathan

      My thinking is that you might have a component of misophonia. That would explain the sensitivity to certain categories of sound in the face of normal LDL's. The fluttering could represent TTTS, which some consider to be part of that condition. My suggestion would be to discuss it more fully with your TRT clinician, since it was Dr. Jastreboff himself who coined the term "misophonia" and first described it in the literature.

      Hope this helps.
