Hey Y'all -

Currently been having issues with sensitivity to sound since taking an airplane ride back to the US from Scotland. Currently, im experiencing a lot of facial tenderness, as well as extreme central pain my left year - and unquestionably a reduced tollerence to sharp noises or continuous sound (music) over long periods. 

Is this common? 

There was a crap shoot two weeks where I hurt my ear trying to clean them with a water squirter, then went to a club for hours and left with loud buzzing, it was when i tried to blow my ears on plane ride i really felt a real discomfort which left my ear sensitive to loud sounds (but not all sounds!). 

Should i be more concerned with another possiblity causing the pain? Its been about 2 months since i felt a "break" on the left side of my head deep inside my ear and ive have facial swelling and tenderness since. 

Any ideas whats causing it or is this a symptom of hyperacusis?

Any help would make a young musician tear with joy, tyty everyone and hope everyone feels better soon!

I did have facial pain with hyperacusis.  Sound therapy resolved this issue for me (though I am not cured of hyperacusis).  It may help you as well.

Hi Yoyomama
Gee  you have really  been through  the mills.  Was everything okay before your plane trip?
It sounds  to me that you might have a sinus  infection   and ear  infection  there..especially with the painful face and ear.
Have  you been  to the doctors?  Have you had any treatment?
I  don;t have facial  pain...mines  all in the head..ice pick like.
I  got my Hyperacusis same time as Ear Micro suction.   159 decibels,  then  120 decibels  for the MRI  MURDER 
I tell  as many as I can to AVOID Micro Suction at ALL COSTS
They are trying to say my Anxiety caused it... but I was perfectly fine before.
I've got a psychologist appt tomorrow,Saturday. Got the appt  really quickly, o that was good.
They reckon talking about it will help..
I hope you start to feel better real soon.
Let us know  how you go

Hey Cathu! Thank you so much for checking in. At the time of the trip there was fluid buildup in my Ear, but its been about three months since then and im still having some issues. I had a CT and an MRI done and luckily nothing came up. Leaving me slightly at an impasse. I know for a factoid my sensitivity to sound goes up dramatically if i irritate the ear and PT for TMJ has helped out alot with unquestionably tight muscles. Unfortunately ive had this tenderness and pain for over 2-3 months now, so im not sure exactly whats going on. I think its really odd that it only effects one of my Ears and has had so much physical discomfort. I've been extremely curious as to see if maybe i could be victim of a facial nerve disorder thats the cause of the pain, or possibly a viral infection that just hasen't gone away yet, or even possibly popped a blood vessel in the plane or having some long standing ETD issues (ENT's doubt its ETD at this point).  I definitely has sensitivity to sound but the ability to bounce back rapidly at times makes me really question the root cause; or the fact that H might have more than a singular cause. I'll be interested to see how im feeling by the new year. Pink noise therapy has helped immensely, and seeing a therapist has helped rub some of the woes from H off me. Positivity is key in a situation like H and im looking into other forms of psycho therapy to tackle this illness 😉 -
