Hello everyone,
I'm 36 yo and i'm struggling with H for about 5 years. I had tinnitus for about 18 years, didn't bother me at all but when H strucked me everything changed for the worse. I was wondering if it's too late to try Pink Noise therapy. Is it something you should start immediately after you get Hyperacusis or is it something that works anytime you start?

Thank you so much for your time and help.

I wish you would consider meeting with a trained clinician for evaluation, treatment and ongoing counseling.  If, for any reason, you refuse to do that - no, it's never too late.

Hello Dan,
Thank you so much for your reply. I did visit quite a few ENTs over those years but didn't help much. Unfortunately in my country there isn't a certified clinician for TRT therapy. I purchased the pink noise cd from this network last year but didn't find the courage to try it yet. I was always terrified to the idea that maybe could make things worse. Also, i thought it works to those that had recent incidents that caused the H. Now i'm more confident to try the pink noise cd. This community has been more than helpful, thank you all.

I started TRT many years after i got H. My case was so bad i needed some improvement before wearing sound generators. Now 8 years later i am almost 100% recovered. I did most of the work on my own, but it took time.. Since i was in Cat 4 i used 3 years to get to Cat 3, then startet with sound generators.

Nice to hear some good recovery success news smuth - I am at nearly 100% clear of H after many years battling, I just have to avoid full restaurants with lots of loud talking, I can listen but leaves me low after and T level increases for a while, stress I expect... Apart from that ok with other noises now.

How do you mean "imrpovements before wearing sound generators"? Pink noise from normal speakers..?

Hello guys! I find it very comforting to know that there are success stories amongst us. I'm so happy for your recovery. I already started the pink noise cd and will keep working on it every day. I believe the key to recovery is being persistent, not giving up and always keeping a positive outlook. Thank you all for sharing your stories.

Nia89,

You are off to a great start! Just remember, the VAST majority of people who develop hyperacusis get better. Sound desensitization works for many people. Remember: setbacks are inevitable. See them as just that, a temporary bump in the road. Keep your momentum moving forward and don’t give up.

Best,
EDogg

Such a lovely reply nia89 - it warms my heart to see our success can help others fight H.

I wonder how many people on here damaged their hearing via acoustic trauma don't realise their body can already be on the path to self healing, and do drugs get in the way? I'm not sure, but so many side effects!! and I wonder how many of those believe the body can self heal without the overuse of machines, chemicals, medicines etc.

People don't even realise it 'cells have consciousness' - and can get stronger, so you can help with self healing - when half asleep at night or in meditative mode imagine healing light coming in to your body as positive healing energy, targeting the area of concern, if you can't image light then imagine your very own 'real' personal Guardian Angel sending you light as I did when I had a recent injury.

I personally never used pink noise - I was on so many tablets 4 years ago H was rampant, now zero tablets... once I realised 4 years ago it was my brain playing up and not my ears did I give it some stick, 'for most people though gentle steps at first'... Gone were the days when my brain was saying I don't like that sound and I don't like this one either - power of the mind then gave brain a lesson have a listen at this etc etc, nice rebooting sounds...

If positive self healing energy works, which it does - then many here can help themselves to get better without requiring so many medicines and specialists.

Steve.

Hi smuth,

May I ask if you had abnormal hearing too, as in hearing environmental sound amplified or much too loud ?

Thanks for posting.  So good to hear you are feeling much better !
