My T is rapidly getting worse. My neck and shoulder muscles are constantly uptight and sore. Nothing I do seems to help, or is short lived in its effectiveness. I'm becoming seriously depressed. I wake up in the morning feeling like shit. Having constant noise is one thing, but I'm getting bloody scared what damage is being done with this chronic muscle tension. I do have one one question though. I know muscle tension can give you T or make it worse and I know that hearing loss can over stimulate the cranial nerves. But can hearing loss/ damage to auditory fibres over stimulate the somatic nerves? Can this result in chronic muscle tension?
