YES!!!! I am recovering from the most debilitating case of hyperacusis which was also accompanied by extreme light sensitivity. At my worst, I couldn’t tolerate ANY light or sound without getting sick. It is accompanied by the pressure in your ears like you mentioned.

I happened, by miracle onto a clinic that has equipment which utilizes Artificial Intelligence. The equipment has been around for years and was developed by the same scientific team that developed the EEG, EMG, EKG, etc., but until recently it was only available to professional athletes. Que question here of what do professional athletes have to do with hyperacusis. Well, the technology works on a whole lot of things not just sports injuries.

This technology gave me my life back. I went from being trapped at home living almost all my waking hours in my bedroom with black out blinds on the windows to block the light and needing noise canceling headphones or earplugs to block the sound of the air conditioner to just last weekend, I went on a day ride to the Grand Canyon on the back of my husbands Harley. In full disclosure, I did wear ear plugs on the bike but I tolerated the day beautifully!!

Check out http://www.pibcoa.com for more information about these clinics. At the time I was treated, there was only one in the country and it was in St. George, Utah, but more are opening all the time. I highly recommend this treatment for anyone wanting relief from this affliction.

I am so grateful for the life I got back from this equipment, that I have opened one of these clinics in American Fork, Utah. I am happy to help answer any questions you might have and to connect you with a clinic near you. Finally, there is help out there!

Thanks for the reply! Did you also have a tight feeling around your ears and in your cheecks?  What did they do at the clinic? Thanks for giving me hope! I don't have tinnitus or hyperacusis (I think) but I do have like a blocked feeling in and around my ears after a firecracker.

What I’ve learned is that these dysfunctions come from a lack of electrical current in the brain. Every cell of our body needs current to work properly. Utilizing artificial intelligence the equipment is able to determine areas of low current or inflammation then it sends a corrective signal to the cells. The current is between a millionth and a trillionth of an amp which means that it is small enough to get into the cell. I have seen a number of people with brain trauma regain function. My circumstances were a little different than yours but I do feel fullness and pressure in my ears. But it really all comes down to cells. If the cells are healthy then the tissue/organ/muscle, etc will be healthy and work properly. Let me know what I can do to be if further assistance to you. Blessings!

I had MULTIPLE issues going on and have seen improvement in all of them. I still feel some pressure in my ears but it wasn’t the worst thing I was dealing with so we haven’t addressed it specifically, but it has improved as a side benefit. We are still working on getting my brain healthy and I feel confident that the pressure symptom will resolve as I do.

Yep, all these symptoms are temporary in my experience. I've felt tightness in cheeks, burning sensations, ear muscle spasms/fluttering, pressure sensations. The less I worry about them, the faster they go. On the other hand, when I used to study them intensely and focus on them, monitoring for any changes, they stuck around and often intensified.

I know I have a neurotic personality type - it took me a long time to admit that to myself. Once I did, I began to tackle it with exercise and mindfulness techniques. The improvement in my Hyperacusis symptoms was dramatic to say the least. Also helped with many other aspects of my life. Takes self discipline, but it's worth it 100%.

Although likely good intentioned this sounds like a business solicitation. I believe that is against the forum rules.

Also- are there any studies to back up the claim on the website that with this treatment “Through proper implementation of our equipment we increase the body’s ability to heal by 500% and deliver a 95% success rate!”. How is healing measured? How is success defined? Is there a placebo control group? To make such claims, there should be evidence to support it.

I am coming at this from a patient perspective. I haven’t shared my whole story yet, but here it is. I have had health problems since I was a teenager. I am now 55 years old. Most of the things I have suffered with, there were no answers for. I started having neurological problems back in the fall of 2015 and had my first hyperacusis incident. It only lasted a day and I thought it was just some weird thing. By the summer of 2016 I was in full-blown hyperacusis. I had to wear ear plugs or noise canceling headphones everywhere I went. That’s when I reached out and found the hyperacusis network. I was grateful for the help and support that I found here. I ordered the CD and did the music therapy. I worked on stress release and mental health issues, I also stopped focusing on it and tried to focus on other things. These things all helped to some degree, However, in time, my condition continued to worsen. The sound sensitivity was accompanied by what I call brain sickness which was headaches and nausea much like a bad case of motion sickness. One day I had a bad bout of brain sickness and by the end of the day I could no longer tolerate ANY sound or ANY light! We put black out blinds on all the windows in my bedroom so that it was completely dark. I couldn’t interact with people. I was very much isolated. My husband would come into the bedroom in the evenings and whisper to me for a few minutes. It would make me sick but it was worth it as that was my only human connection. In addition to the light and sound sensitivity, I was having all kinds of other health problems, including a whole slew of neurological issues. I was so chronically fatigued and in pain that I was in bed roughly 22 hours a day. I had sciatic pain to where I could not sit, a failed foot surgery so I wasn’t able to walk more than a short distance, and a frozen shoulder which had no cause. I was basically a train wreck. And of course I had been to every doctor and had every test done and nobody could give me an answer as to what was wrong. I was so hopeless thinking if no one knows what’s wrong with me how will I ever get well.It was at this low low point that I came across PIBCOA, the pain injury and brain centers of America. I am not trying to solicit business, but when you have been through what I have been through you feel compelled to help others who feel hopeless and that they can never get well. I do think attitude and stress play a huge affect on our health. Staying focused on the positive and away from obsessing over your current situation is a must. But sometimes you need more than that. So I just want people to know that there is a technology out there that can help! My life has been given back to me. My husband’s wife has been given back to him. I can hardly talk about what I went through without getting very emotional because of how difficult it was. When I started to get my life back I became a clinician at the PIBCOA clinic in St. George Utah. I saw people’s lives changing right before my eyes. I saw a man with brain cancer who had a tumor removed which completely changed his personality get his personality back, I saw a young man who had been in a motorcycle accident and was a paraplegic start to move his legs again, I’ve seen numerous people with debilitating anxiety get their lives back. People with Lupus and Ehler’s Danlos who couldn’t get out of bed, become happy, energetic people again. Over and over again I’ve seen people feel better because of this technology. So I am just sharing this in the hope that if there are people out there who feel hopeless and feel like they’ve tried everything and can’t find anything to help, that this is an option. The technology is registered with the FDA. It is legitimate. It has been used by professional athletes in the NFL, NBA and MLB for decades, it hasn’t been available to the general public until recently. It was developed by the same scientific team that developed the EEG, the EKG, and the EMG—great reputations are behind it. It is very effective and can help with multiple kinds of brain trauma or dysfunction. I don’t care if you come to my clinic. I am just sick and tired of people being sick and tired and having no hope. Because I lived that and it’s made me angry and motivated to get the word out that you don’t have to keep on suffering.

Positive stories needed! I have a full and blocked feeling in both ears.


I had a similar experience and it resolved over time.  Clinicians call it aural fullness.  For me, it had to do with fear and concern with regard to sound.  In my case, it was related to hyperacusis.  The cause isn't clear in your case.  Then again, aural fullness is a symptom of other ear-related health challenges.  You might consider being evaluated by an ENT.

No, I didn't.  You should be evaluated by an ENT to try to get a handle on what is going on with you.
