Hi, It is a while since I have been on Hyperacusis Network, not because I dont value it, I Do.  What I would like to ask is has anyone ever found that they get an "echo" from other peoples speech, and of your own?. Recently, I have noticed an echo approximately 2 seconds after they/I speak.  This can last for 2 to 3 hours, disappear and return again at random, and for no apparent reason.  Has anyone ever experienced this, and if they have is there any solution to it Thank you

Hi Joe 
How are you? Not so much an echo..more like  everyone else is speaking gobbildegook sometimes.. I just can't make out any words.  Like at the bank the other day..with a glass screen, which makes it really hard any way. I did have a nice chat in the street today, where it was quiet, and that was really good.  How did you get you r THyperacusis.  and do you have  tinnitus too? I had micro suction and started on Ramapril at the same time. SO no one is claiming the blame.

Thank you Cathu for your Post.  I had Meniere's Syndrome since 1985, with it has come Hearing Loss, Tinnitus, loss of Balance, and 12/14 yrs ago Hyperacusis also kicked in, all of those conditions are progressive, especially Hyperacusis, that's why I think that this "echo" thing is coming from that.  How about yourself? how are you contending with these conditions?

Thank you, Joe

Hi Joe,

I had the echo in with my voice when my H was bad - I found out by myself with me it wasn't my ears causing the H it was my brain needed retraining to sounds after a decade of being over protective and avoiding harsh sounds. Specialists didn't know this solution about retraining it quickly if ears weren't damaged as in my case, I had to look for answers myself.

Can I ask, you went from being slightly deaf?  then the other way to being oversensitive to sounds over time, is this correct, I never read this could happen, do you know of other people in the same situation, loosing hearing first... And with you did something happen eg loud noise to bring H on.

Its getting late here in the UK but I'll look on again tomorrow.

Steve.

Thank you Steve, I'm not too far from you, just over the Irish sea in Co Armagh. My story, (to keep it brief), is that my hearing did go on a gradual slide down, and still going, since 1985, and to be honest while it is now down to around 60/70%, I reckon I would be better off if I was totally deaf as when people speak and I can hear them in that instance, 1 minute I cannot pick up key words and cannot reply even after asking them to repeat several times. They then accuse me of "selective hearing".
Tinnitus is also getting worse as time goes by, as is Hyperacusis. I dont go out much unless my wife Margaret is with me as "interpreter". But I don't deliberately try to insulate myself from sounds, which is impossible anyway, but I stay away from places which I know will have really high spikes of sound. It is only within this past 3 months that the "echo" mullarkey has started and it comes and goes for no particular reason. On top of everything else, it is very difficult to contend with, and makes life even more nastier. I'm so glad just to having got talking to someone who has the same affliction, and to know that I'm not alone. Reading you Post, I see that you have done quite a bit of research, and your findings and sharing, is interesting on several front's. Thank you. I'm coming 75, but I feel as if I have "lost" this past 35 years as Meniere's and it's hanger's on, T H/l and H) have dominated my everyday life, there's always something going on. Thanks again Steve.

Thank you for your kind reply Joe - so reading your notes you never damaged your ears as in a rock concert, interesting... As for T with all my research away from this forum and what ive read here, you can see specialist after specialist and see what they come up with - or as I did/do research the power of the mind, when you come across interesting info print and recycle it, I don't trust overusing bright computers 'staring at info' or mobiles when on charge, with T & H don't think it helps in my opinion. I use the power of my mind to push T into the distance away from 'thought' - give it no respect, ignore it and keep busy, rest, keep busy...
