HI
I´m still suffering heavilily after having my earpain (hyperacusis?) come back a couple of weeks ago after 13 peaceful years. Very bad pain, spasms and fullness in the ear and sensitivity to sounds.

Back then I had never heard of anything called hyperacusis and I´m still wondering what is causing this terrible pain now.
I am exremely sentitive to cold on that ear now. and it also increases the pain.
The muscles around the ear are also very soar

Does anybody else suffering from T or H have that experience?

After a visit to a new ENT yesterday where she would not rule out that problems with my jaw might contribute to my ear pain, I would be very interested in hearing if anybody else suffering from "regular" hyperacusis, that is ear pain and hypersensitivity to sound is experiencing these following symtoms:
1. greatly increased senstitivity to cold  on the ear
2. Soarness in the muscles around the ear
3. Increased pain when chewing and moving the jaw in general.
4.Usually feeling no pain when I wake up in the morning, I can develop severe pain in course of the working day WITHOUT having been exposed to any loud sounds.

I would appreciate your comments

When my hyperacusis was bad and my ears were hurt, just touching my ear lobe would cause my ear to squeal. My face and ears can also get sore and burn when they are hurt. 

As I understand it, this is all related to global brain sensitivity. The brain is globally linked and so when ears get hurt you can experience other problems. 

I've found that by treating my hyperacusis, and not distressing over my symptoms, these problems gradually get less and can disappear altogether.

What are you doing to treat your hyperacusis? The majority of ENTs don't understand hyperacusis or how to treat it. But, there is help and finding a good TRT doctor would be a good place to start.

Sound enrichment is also very helpful and is something you could start working on. Sound enrichment has to be approached gradually and you can learn how to properly use sound enrichment here:   http://www.tinnitus.org

Best,

John

hjolli, I can relate to #2 and #4 but these are only really typical of a really bad spot in Hyperacusis, same for John's burning face, I get that bad when my ears are bad.

Thank you very much all for your replies and comments. Yes I know I´m a bit nervous these days about this situation.

So far it´s the right ear that´s been torturing me. And that´s the one that got exposed to too much noise.

But now the situation seems to be changing suddenly, last night my left ear began to buzz and now I have pain and sentitivty there. I have not had any loud sounds into that ear. Stranglely, my right ear seems to be better now.

Is this normal for H, or is this maybe some nervous syndrom?

BTW I am right now awaiting an appointment with a dentist to see if my problem could be TMJ related.
