I have had ringing in my ears for about 2 months solidly. The ringing is very high pitched and I have lost all my high frequency hearing. The other problem is that certain sounds increase my ringing. Is this a form of Hyperacusis.
example: paper being ruffled or crumpled up, the running of water, cutlery being clanged together and voices of people that a talking to loud.
Has anyone heard of these awful problems that accompany tinnitus.

Thanks,

Bruce

Hi Bruce. 

It isn't unusual for certain sounds to appear to increase the volume of tinnitus.  What you're describing is part of tinnitus, not hyperacusis.  How long does this increased tinnitus last?
