Hi all

Very new to this so please bear with me.
Since having COVID, approximately 3 months ago, I have experienced some possible after effects includ8ng dizziness and headaches.

But I have noticed that sudden noises, these are not always that loud, eg slamming an iPad cover shut, clapping or a loud tutting noise can send pains straight through my head.
i cannot believe the instant uncomfortable feeling and the sharp pain that resonates through my brain.

GPs do not seem to want to follow this up and in fact never really respond when I ask about it.

Most noises are fine but it is the sudden unexpected noises that hurt.....it leaves me feeling anxious afterwards

My hyperacusis onset was during a time 4 months ago when i suspected i had covid. I have been wondering if others would end up reporting such so this rather interesting to me.

Tony,

Those sharp noises are the worst for me, too. I think hyperacusis happens in mysterious ways sometimes, but this sudden noise sensitivity with shooting pains and discomfort have always been part of my General hyperacusis, and most others have this as well.

I don’t know what advice to give except allow and enjoy the sounds you are okay with and are relaxing, and minimize the painful ones without going to any great lengths or worrying too much about them.

I shut things carefully now, handle plates and silverware carefully, open crackly bags as quickly as possible, and when there is a sound that hurts me I try not to dwell on it. The worst is when there are lots of surprise sounds you weren’t expecting, that you have no control over. I hope your surroundings are peaceful so you don’t get worse. You might get over this quickly.

Thank you both for replying, it really does help.

i am starting to recognise the noises that hurt, it does not stop the sharp pains but helps a little.

There appears to be times they hurt more and times not so noticeable, evenings seem awful.

so confusing and inexplicable.
