Hi,

Anyone else with H feel fullness / pressure / tightness/ almost itchiness in their ears? What causes this? I’m 2 months in, and this seems to be happening to sounds that I was ok with only last week. I have been not overprotecting and avoiding dangerous loud sounds. Still worried I’m doing this all wrong.

Hi,

Yes, I am familiar with that symptoms as someone with H--fullness in the ear and I have heard of others too with it.  It seems to me it occur when really I have had too much sound simulation--sort of like a warning one has had enough noise and to go be in a quieter environment/take it is easy as it were. 

So, for me it is not a super loud noise like a siren, but could be clatter of dishes, too much conversation, the sound of my own voice.  Hence, I have to then track more subtler sounds.

Do you have it in both ears or just one?. 
For me, one of my ears is more sensitive to lower base sound and the other higher and so that is when the fullness feeling can come in for me.

Do you know what your noise/sound/ threshold is?

It would appear you are on the edge of your threshold for sound and thus there is something in your environment that is too  much sound/aggravation for your ears.  For me, I would try to track when the ear fullness comes on and what I had been doing before that fullness of the ear(s) came on. In contrast, for me it can also be a delayed sound aggravation reaction.

There is no doubt H is complicated.
Sometimes one really has to get into being in a detective mode.

Hope that helps.

Thanks! It seems to be worse in my left ear. I do think you’re right that it has to deal with sound threshold. I’m just wondering if it’s dangerous. I can handle the discomfort just making sure it’s not making me worse to live my life if it causes the fullness....

Fullness is not dangerous.

While I am not over hyperacusis by far, sound therapy did get rid of fullness for me.

Yes, my left ear is worse too.  However, for me, (and perhaps it is different for some others), if I do not reduce the sound exposure, go to a quieter mode, when I have the ear fullness, then the symptoms escalates to the full shooting pain in my ear(s) and increased fatigue
