I know a lot about head pain  most days from this. I usually get scalp pain in the center of my head which lasts for the entire day. I only wish I knew what could totally get rid of it. Reducing things like caffeine may help a little along with a good nap . It is usually caused by anxiety and high frequency sounds for me. With Hyperacusis,this is the last symptom to go unfortunately, for me. I hope you find a way to relieve your pain Ontario. Let me know if anything helps. take care   PAul

Hey Paul, thanks for your reply [smile]

My headache subsided yesterday [smile] I think it was tension headache. I took
a flexiril the night before, so I assume that is what helped it dissipate. Still unsure
whether it was H or TMJD induced. Probably the latter..

Thought you would be interested in this link.

Hi Ontario,

Many people with sound sensivity do get headaches after a sound exposure or even when they are not exposed to a sound. But I did get headaches as I worked at desensitization but now I just get dull headaches rarely and don't really notice them too much. I find cognitive behavior therapy helpful with that an other symptoms, and of course gradually working at desensitization.

John

John. Could you please break down "desensitization" for me?

My ldls are 65 right ear, 75 left. I haven't ordered pink noise cd yet, and use a table top device atm that plays nature sounds. I am not really improving at all. I try to be careful around noises and do not use ear protection at home.

I am still waiting to see TRT clinician.

I just feel with everything I have learned, kind of confused. I am told that normal sounds won't damage.O.k, but then told, stay away from noises that hurt?! My biggest question is this. Do I need to stay within my ldls until I improve? How does one go about this exactly WITHOUT wearing gens? or else is it really hard to improve without them? How do I do CBT with no one in my area to treat this? Any book you recommend?

Feel free to pm, if you are so kind to respond [smile]

Well, how you go about desenitization depends on the challenge you're facing like whether it's due to phonophobia/misophonia or hyperacusis. Could be that you need the pink noise CD or WSGs, or maybe need to listen more to loud sounds you can tolerate and maybe working with music therapy. I know your waitng on good help too ...

I'll PM ya ...

Thanks John. I am waiting for a paypal payment, then ordering the cd.

I am unsure what I have, but obviously have H, and I believe phonophobia a bit too. I am scared of noise that causes pain. Altogether, I feel anxious in regards to sounds, but don't hide from them. 

Misophonia as I understand it, is what my husband has, can't stand the sound of people eating. Makes him angry. However I know that there other definitions for it as well.

I just went to see my ENT and was told I had hyperacusis. I had already done a lot of research so I figured this. I have been unable to watch TV and listen to music for the past year. It has gotten so bad now I can't even be in the car for more than 30 minutes. Two people tAlking even bothers me. I always get a headache when this happens and this has been my main problem. I've had daily headaches for the past year and a half. It took me a while to realize they were being CAUSED by sound. Is this typical with hyperacusis?
