      For the first time I am really struggling with tinnitus and hyperacusis.

      I have had tinnitus for a few years now and has gradually worse. My hyperacusis is around two years old and was getting better.

      In the past very occasionally I have had headaches and feeling of nausea and fatigue. Last time this happened was back in December 2020.

      For the past week I have had really bad headaches and a feeling of nausea/fatigue and my ears have hurt too. I can only think of one reason and it is the bike ride that I went on a couple of weeks ago when it was windy. It seems bike rides when it is windy causes issues with my ears, normally as a delayed reaction. There were also a couple of times during the week I went to a restaurant, where the decibel level was around 80 and maybe pushed me over the edge.

      I think my headaches are linked to my ears though my neck doesn't seem as mobile as normal. I'm planning to see a Chiropractor next week. I don't think it is Meniere's disease or vertigo.

      I wondered does anyone else have headaches and feeling of nausea/fatigue?

      Nausea can be caused by many things, chiro might make things worse, so you should be careful about it. Usually nausea has its origins in the gastrointestinal system, so I would go to a specialist in that area and get things checked out.

      @Sash, I'm also getting the same symptoms you have mentioned with the additional burning in ear and facial pain (cheeks, side of jaw, eyebrow).

      Before it was just burning pain in ears but now I'm getting these symptoms as well. I'm assuming my setback started when I went to the pub last Saturday to watch England vs Ukraine. It was a lot of shouting when England scored and my 14 dB protection did not work. The crazy thing is my symptoms didn't kick in till at least 3 days after going to the pub so am very confused.

      I'm hoping your setback isn't from bike riding, but perhaps due to the restaurant. I love bike rides myself and they are the only reason for me to get out at the moment, I would hate to give it up. Hopefully we both get better in the next few days.
