I really thought I was getting better. Lately, I've actually been getting some silent spells at times whilst relaxing and deep breathing especially just before lights out. Now I am panicking again. Although some of the original sound/s have receded, I'm now conscious of my T being more sensitive to other sounds especially when I'm out. There seems to be a period of some minutes when I come indoors when the ringing is louder before calming down again. In fact, I think that some indoor noises also 'ramp it up'. Just when I though I was getting a handle on things, the goal posts move. I don't want to go back to where I was after having made some progress and I'm super worried that this is happening. I do remember having spikes after being out many months ago but I don't know if it's yet more anxiety this time and I've just latched onto another obsession. Could things settle if I keep going out? I'm sure I'm not imagining it. I cannot stay in forever and overprotect my ears. So far, it always calms eventually. If ears become over sensitive, can this be reversed in time by repeated exposure to normal levels of sound? I don't have H or any pain but months of anxious introspection and monitoring have made me hyper vigilant. When I'm out, I can't stop thinking about what I'll hear in the quiet on my return. Some more positive words would be appreciated.
