EAR PLUGS- FOR THE SHOWER.
Where can I find water safe ear plugs? I dread the shower every day. In fact I don't shower my hair but every three days so I don't have to have horrible higher T when I get out of the shower. I usually put a cap on my head and plugs in on the days I don't wash hair.  Thank you

These are the ones I use in the shower and movie theater.  I have used them for years and they are great AND reusable.

If you can't afford to spend this much, make a donation to the network of $10.00 and I will send you a small quantity.

Thank you so much ! Your Hyperacusis gets your T riled up too ? Some days turn into several muffled / pressure and high T days because of any dumb sound. But I am in CBT therapy and just started.
This has been going on since November 7. Acoustic trauma.
How long Have you had yours? Is it reactive too ?
Thank you for writing !
Victoria

I have had mine since 1991.  I did TRT in 1994 and started this network.

Oh my gosh. This is amazing. You began this amazing helpful place.

But I am so stuck with how the H keeps bringing on higher and higher T. I am so getting anxiety ridden. The fear of the loud ringing makes me fear it will keep growing. I know I need to retrain my mind my thoughts with good and pure and sound truths. I am a firm believer in Dr Caroline Leaf. A neuropsychologist. I am a believer as well. But fear is incapacity teach morning I begin to hear the T again.

Dan, is there a reason you still use plugs in the shower if it’s at a safe DB level?

Hi peace . I use these in the shower and also use them for swimming as the splashing noise is very load without then in . They are cheap to buy but work very well . I’ve tried lots of other but these are definitely the better ones . Great for the price

Ps I would only use these ones for the shower and swimming not for going out in bars restaurants etc . You want musicians ear plugs for that so you can still hear people talking etc . I can sent you a link for them also if you wish . They also work great .

I do not wear earplugs in the shower unless I have a migraine.  I did TRT back in 1994.  It is the best treatment currently available. Anyone who comes down with hyperacusis should not resort to surgery as their first option.  Hyperacusis surgery is invasive and does nothing to allow your body to self - improve their decreased sound tolerance on their own.  I think it is unfortunate for people to promote surgery to individuals new to hyperacusis.  TRT improves sound tolerance in the overwhelming majority of people.

Thanks, Dan. Have you been able to get back to normal life? Restaurants, public transits, gatherings etc? Or do you think hyperacusis from acoustic trauma is a condition for life?
