      It was so bad im writing about it... So i went to the a new doctor after changing offices. I have very bad T and bad H.. Like a light switch hurts bad.. So ive been scared just to leave my house due to my bad state.. But my work called and needed a updae on me and i also needed to get my disability claim back as well so i had to go.. So the office is located near a busy intersection.. As soon as i get out and go in the office its loud as shit.. Tv on high volume and ppl talking loudly i was with my mother so she handled the talking i was wearing my muffs but still was hurting bad.. They put me in a room when i told them i cant be in here too loud for me.. My visit was at 3 they didnt attend me till almost 6 and meanwhile that time workers kept slammimg doors in and out the hall way with my muffs on i can hear everything as i didnt have them on.. My head and ears were hurting bad.. But i couldnt leave, then the lady checking my vitals was sick and kept couching loudly after telling her my eats are sensitive and she talked loudly also. Just overall everybody was so loud.i heard so much loud noises in 3 hours there than ive heard in one month in my house.. I told my doc that i have a big headache cause of being here but he couldnt give two shits about it..i gave him a brief summary on my situation i told him i suffer from bad T and H.. And the H has been the reason of most of my agony.. I also told him i got anxiet and some depression from the bad H and T.. He was talking so loud after telling him my ear hurt .. It was just a bad experince my old odfice was quiet ass shit i miss it now..now im scared going back there.. He agreed to give me my claim back.. But couldnt give my work a update paper only a vistit paper... Now im home and suffering badly my ears are in so much pain and t up the roof.. My ear feel very distorted more than before not sure if it was from all the loud shit i hear or wearing my muffs on for too long.. Oh well now i gota take this pain..

      @Geo your situation sounds really tough I'm sorry you're going through that. Do you stay in your room in silence all the time?

      @Geo doctors can be so insensitive since its not them going through it. I think if I didn't leave my house I would go crazy and that would make things worse. I'm sending you big hugs from here nobody should have to go through that.

      @Geo have you tried anything for the H? I've read about people curing their H in this site maybe you can try something like that?

      @Geo you have friends with T and H? I'm the only person I know who has t and probably the only person in this forum with the objective spasms it sucks not being able to relate to anyone. Nobody understands what we go through we need more tinnitus awareness.

      So what is your plan? You are going to stay in your room forever? I'm not being critical, just wondering. I'm in a very similar spot. I take painful hits to my ears everyday, I don't think we can avoid it.

      Geo, have you sought out any sort of professional counseling. Sometimes just hearing the right words can help you deal better. I know it's no a cure, but It may help to keep the depression from getting worse.
      I wish I had more to contribute....
       
    21. so sorry @Geo Ive had some bad docs visits myself. Hope the H fades for you.

      Wearing sound protection can really increase sensitivity for awhile after you wear it. Hopefully its better today.

      barotrauma? stress?
      @Geo , I'm in the same sitch as you, T +H is killing it.
      My last ENT was yelling like crazy. I told him to stop yelling 'cause it hurts my ears. He just kept on yelling that he isn't yelling. He also hit this stupid tuning fork right next to my ear on metal. Metal on metal. What a brainfart. Thus I left for good. The new one I found speaks normal.

      I'm incarcerated in my own apartment. I hardly go out these days. And I used to be a super-social being. It's all pretty sad.

      Its the procedure @Viking had, whereby a tiny area in the thalamus is ablated, either by radiofrequency or high-intensity focused ultrasound (hifu).
       
    30. @Geo have you tried amitriptyline? I know two people who are benefitting from it.
