I'm wondering if this has happened to anyone and if it got better for them. I got tinnitus and hyperacusis almost a month ago due to acoustic trauma in my ear. That ear rang shrilly for over two weeks, then the ringing moved to my other ear. Now sometimes they both ring faintly or are almost silent. The tinnitus that's started up now seems to be an electronic buzz in my head. Sometimes this sensation easier to ignore than shrill ear ringing, but it's less easy to mask completely than a distinct noise coming from my ears. The ENT seems to think the ear injury is healing but since the tinnitus is "centralizing" it's becoming more of a chronic situation. He said I should habituate to it in a few months (assuming it stays like this). I don't know why this is happening but I did have a lot of anxiety and stress particularly when I was taking steroid medication, so maybe that upset had a hand in how my brain is responded to the injury. Basically I'm wondering what I can do now, since it's only been a few days that I've noticed it moving from my ears to my head. I tell myself don't panic, even when I sense the buzzing over noise, that I will get used to it. Avoid silence, exercise, take the sleeping medication, avoid loud noise (easier said than done in a large city). I've considered going the antidepressant route. I'm not sure how to help my poor brain and I recover at this new stage, and I admit, I'm discouraged and a little scared.
