I've been going through the history on this forum trying to find some similar cases. After a loud phone incident about 4 months back, I've had a constant sharp stabbing pain in my left ear, as well as hyperacusis. These symptoms are much different than my other ear, where I've had mild hyperacusis for about 5 years. 

I've never experienced the sharp stabbing constant pain in my mild ear, nor have I ever noticed any sort of tensing up or bracing for noise. I'm guessing this is related to either TTTS or possibly a hypermobile stapes? It really seems like a totally separate issue from the hyperacusis, with the only similarity being a reaction to noise.

Has anyone else at least been able to recover from feeling a constant 24/7 pain? The hyperacusis I could manage, but the constant pain is hard to ignore. I've seen that Rob at one point had constant pain for quite awhile, most likely from TTTS, and he was  able to get rid of that portion of the issue. Has anyone else had success?

MattR--I would suggest you look up Rob's music protocol on this site and give it a try. Rob believes that the music protocol gave him relief from symptoms that were not helped by white noice/pink noise programs, although I'm pretty sure he used both. My problems also arose from acoustic shock although in my case it was an explosion rather than a phone malfunction. I did not have ear pain but rather an awful collection of other symptoms that you probably don't need to hear about. It's been my experience that acoustic shock episodes inflict a variety of issues that operate differently from those caused by, say, going to a loud rock concert. And I am pretty convinced that the problems stem from chronic TTTS. So give the music protocol a try. There's nothing to lose.

Yeah I'm actually starting on that this week to see if it helps. And I certainly agree with you on the differing symptoms. My mild ear has what I consider classic hyperacusis that I think so many people describe. The acoustic shock stuff brings along another set of issues. I'm trying to narrow it down to most definitely being a TTTS issue, as that would at least point to it being an actual physical issue.
