      I would like to hear peoples feedback/stories on how long they had sound sensitivity/acoustic trauma due to loud music. How long did it take before you got better and or subsided?

      Acoustic trauma (club drumming)
      My bad hyperacusis lasted just over 2 months after noise trauma. It's dropped down to only hurting when there are loud plates or road noise etc. Retigabine caused it to go away very quickly.

      I think k it got better, after a few months initially. Had flare ups when I was learning how to protect my hearing, but with rest it died back down.
      It never will subside, I just learned how to deal with hearing constant noise and hope it doesn't get any worse.

      Most likely hearing loss
      Mine got better within months. I still have sound sensitivity but not nearly as bad as it was a couple years ago. My tinnitus remained about the same but I am better. You will get there! Keep fighting the good fight!

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Flu, Noise-induced, Jaw trauma
      Mine took about a year to subside the first time round.

      Second time around it took about 4 months.

      I still have a touch of H, specific to certain sounds, that never left me. It's bearable as long as I'm away from HGV brakes, pressured air release, clashing cutlery / crockery and suchlike.

      Ear infection
      Mine was gone after I tried keppra, but I'm not gonna force you to try it. I heard white noises generates help, unless you have reactive t like I did, made it worse as it reacted to it.

      I would like to try kepra but I don't think my provider would give it to me especially cause that's off label use
