“I’ve been on about them to have an extended time period and merely realized that they are often creating this difficulty. But still worried about the possibility of barotrauma increase my T. I’m hoping it’s just a spike and will soon go down. I don’t know for a fact that there is a correlation, but I had no hearing problems before this started. My T has increased since I was on a drip of that and paracetemol but it could be due to stress or any other factors so wanted to find out experiences before I take the meds. Can i use a high quality pink noise sound file on my ipod as a means to start a home based TRT therapy for the hyperacusis. It could take awhile for that fluid to go away, but I believe it will eventually.
Baseline tinnitus rates were high (nearly 47%) relative to the general population of a similar age. Hi Marc – You raise a number of important points in your post, and unfortunately I cannot begin to do give them the attention they truly deserve in this sort of format. For instance, you say that you have hyperacusis – but without knowing your LDLs (Loudness Discomfort Levels), comparing you LDL curve to your audiogram curve, and getting more history, I have no way of telling whether you actually have hyperacusis or whether you might not have some other form of DST (Decreased Sound Tolerance). I also took a hearing test, no hearing loss. Why? Because TRT for hyperacusis uses the TRT Category 3 protocol, a protocol that in addition to counseling always requires the use of broadband sound generators with open molds as opposed to some sort of app played through earbuds (that to some extent block the ear canals). As to why you developed hyperacusis (if that’s what you have), that would require more history – if I could figure it out at all!
Hi. You state that you are “quite scared,” which I surely understand. At the time, 10 years ago, Public Citizen cited 262 cases of tendon ruptures, 258 cases of tendonitis and 274 other cases of other tendon problems. In the meantime, I would suggest to you that sound is your friend and not your enemy. A person with tinnitus will often hear ringing, buzzing, hissing, chirping or whistling sounds that appear to come from inside the body itself. Silence does not give your ears a rest, as some would suggest. Silence places undue stress on the auditory system, which is one of the last things you need.
I’v noticed something and wanted your opinion on it. Even though i am not hearing sounds louder than normal the symptom that i am experiencing is like a tensing of something in my ear when sounds are of a certain volume. In the treatment of urogenital Chlamydia infections they are useful in the treatment of chronic infections after failure of previous macrolid and tetracycline therapy. I also sometimes feel a cold or hot sensation in my right ear. What do you think this could be? I had never before seen a patient like this.

washing dishes and loud conversations etc. I also sometimes feel a cold or hot sensation in my right ear. What do you think this could be? If an EKG establishes that the heart rhythm (no heart block or premature beats) is normal, a slow heart rate is not a cause for concern. I found an audiologist here that has put me on to a CBT counsellor which i will add to my recovery program.
