      Same. I just graduated in November and now I feel kind of stuck with regards to job-hunting. I could probably handle a quiet office environment but due to current circumstances ie COVID-19 my job-hunting has kinda stalled. Another thing that makes me anxious is the thought of having to potentially do job interviews via video call... which would spike my hyperacusis symptoms what with artificial audio being an issue. Or just generally having to work via Zoom.

      God regeneration medicine couldn't come soon enough.

      I’m not too optimistic that any of these will help me as it seems to be developing into a Trigeminal nerve issue.

      Haven’t seen too many success stories with my type of issues.

      I’m sorry you’re also having to deal with the same issue :( I don’t wish this on anyone. Endless torture with no help.

      We have definitely got this shit at the wrong fucking time. I just hope FX-322 ends up working for us. I still believe once the outer hair cells restore it should stop sending pain signals to the type 2 nerve fibres.

      Definitely endless torture. I would do anything to get rid of it. What keeps me going each day is FX-322. What scares me the most is once it comes out it may not work for me. When that happens not too sure what I would do.

      Because of the way the nerves pass through the brain, the trigeminal nerve is often irritated by noise injury. Unless you have done damage to the nerve itself separately from acoustic trauma I think regeneration could potentially help you.

      Yes me too - I know there's not a lot of certainty over whether it will help pain hyperacusis but I am still optimistic as at the end of the day it all comes down to hearing loss which triggers it.
      Idk how to feel about the Audion results but I am still positive about Frequency. I mean Frequency's CEO basically dissed Audion's method of retrofitting an existing support cell into a hair cell.

      Amen to that.
      I suspect that funding of anything deemed "not important" (such as tinnitus, thanx to the pro-habituation crowd) might now be put on the back burner, because of the global recession that is coming our way...:(

      I’m not sure how it would work since you’re in Canada but I called around to different dentists in the area to see if they had an upright CT. I never saw my GP.

      I am so angry that people on this forum struggle to get diagnosed with facial nerve pain that is triggered by noise. This problem is so obvious to many of us. I had experienced it personally and still do. I am surprised it is not medically recognized.

      The ENT says see a orthodontist. The orthodontist says see a ENT. It's a circular loop that obviously requires cross discipline research that was neglected. Loud noise damaging the inner ear can trigger some kind of facial nerve disorder. Scientists need to research this shit.

      An upright CT is mostly used by dentists to evaluate TMJ though. If his issues are more complex, and may involve other facial nerves, he may need more of the regular kind, no?

      I just did but it is considered weak. I will be trying a more potent concentration next week. Beats taking Benzos as far as I am concerned.

      @FGG how would the pill know what frequency is the hearing loss the patient needs to regenerate?
      Is it a "smart pill" or something? What I mean is hearing loss can be anywhere from 0-18,000 Hz, how will it target the exact cells that are dead/missing?
      Or will the cochlea automatically distribute the regeneration where it is needed?

      Do you get what I mean? Thanks.

      My mother had a rather severe case of trigeminal neuralgia and after months and months of suffering she was literally cured by Endep 10mg.
      It was prescribed by oral surgeon.

      I'm not sure if this is what you have but it may be worth exploring.

      I tried it for tinnitus. I also have moderate hyperacusis. Didn't do anything for either. Only had the 5% full spectrum oil so maybe I didn't take enough? (5 drops)
      @bobvann what dosage seemed to help you?

      So I had one of those dark thoughts today.

      I've recently been put on furlough and told if my employer can't find another role for me, I'll lose my job on 3rd June. Not sure of all the reasons for this - COVID-19 is the obvious one, there are a few of us in this situation - but I have been falling out with members of the support team who I work with occasionally. I got some negative feedback from them at my performance review, though my boss understands the difficulties I've had with tinnitus, with my mother passing away and other challenges lately.

      I've never been made redundant or had periods of unemployment since my first job, and I'm getting a bit old now to change jobs, though my last four job interviews resulted in a job offer within a few days. It's a different jobs market now though. As a computer programmer, I've not really kept up with modern languages like I should. I'm redressing that now, doing online training whilst being on furlough.

      The kids' school fees are the biggest worry. We have enough savings to cover the next year in addition to my wife's salary. But I just had the horrible thought today that, if I was to be no longer on this earth, the life insurance payments would be enough to cover the following two years as well, which would see them through school. I've been in tears with myself for going down that dark path once again.

      Thanks for reading. I don't have anyone else I can talk to about this except you folks here.

      I use a high potency full spectrum CBD oil and so far haven’t noticed any effect. If anything my burning has gotten worse in this time but that doesn’t mean it’s from the CBD.

      You're a programmer too aren't you? I'm kind of a traditional Oracle database guy. Done lots of Unix scripting too. I've dabbled with the likes of C#, Java, XML, ASP and so on but I wouldn't pass myself off as proficient in anything other than Oracle.

      Currently teaching myself Python for data science in my spare time, as this seems to be one of the more in-demand skills at the moment and looks quite interesting too.

      Had a more positive afternoon - reached out to a couple of people and starting to get better feedback. It's a roller-coaster ride alright - just got to keep busy and keep the forward momentum going.

      During my second upswing (I've had two in the past year), I had started CBD oil the week before. Granted, I have taken CBD since and still had bad hyperacusis so it's not clear. I consider it a nonnegative aid, with lots of uncertainty on how much it's helping. Bare in mind that my problem is disease oriented so it's always hard to tell if a supplement is helping in that I would be even worse without it.

      I have severe loudness/annoyance hyperacusis, with loud and reactive tinnitus. I also get facial pain and headaches when I talk.

      I'm a mathematician and a computer hacker. By hacker, I don't mean so skilled at programming that I can hack, but that I write code like a monkey in order to solve my math equations. I wish I was more knowledgeable on programming, particularly basics on run-times and efficient code writing.

      You know how in a fighting game you how are suppose to play safe, defensive and choose the safest low risk moves to avoid losing, and everyone calls you boring for playing smart?

      That's exactly what the Government and Medical facilities are doing. They are choosing the "safest, low risk options". Surgeries, regenerative medicine and biomedical research require HUGE RISK and may fail.

      CBT, ACT and pain killers that have been on the market for decades are easy and safe and have no risk.

      In certain cases of chronic pain, muscle decompression surgeries are avoided because of risk and the required specialist needed for them are illusive. It's so much easier for doctors go to with the safest option unless the patient has tons of money to take risk. The insurance companies in the US comply with this obviously.


      Medical innovation is slow because all businesses HATE RISK. They will always choose the safe familiar options. We get scripted treatments for that reason.

      They believe that I am going to live on my knees. Being a complete waste of space and time. They are crazy. I am in an enormous level of suffering all the fucking time.

      Fuck, I'm not even sober anymore. I can't function properly. I'm just pretendeing.

      I will off myself before 2021 begins.

      Send me strength to be able to get to the other side.

      I don't want a semi-life, I don't want a semi-me like @GlennS explains sometimes. I WANT my FULLY ME. My full myself, what I could have done without this fucking tinnitus shit. I don't want and nor accept any different.

      I will never accept or get used to something that is not me anymore, i'ts just a worsened version of me how I was pre tinnitus. This is like surrender. I want MY FULLY SELF. What I was capable to do and achieve before this shit came in.
