Hi all, 

 

So Ive had tinnitus and hyperacusis for some years now after too much noise exposure back in 2016. The H has been a gradual thing and has been getting really bad the last year. 

I have two small children so when my tinnitus got worse in 2018 I started getting really scared of my childrens screams and the noise the make while playing with their toys and such. So I started getting alot of anxiety and fear of being exposed to these sounds and have been using earplugs or noise cancelling headphones around them some of the time. This is very difficult and I know it is not good to overprotect and be in total silence alot. On the other hand it is not good to get baby screams flaring up my H. It feels like an impossible situation. My children are 3,5 and 1,5 years old. 

My H has gotten really bad along with my phonophobia/anxiety/fear/OCD of my situation. I am a complete wreck. And I have extreme reactive tinnitus which I feel is connected to my hyperacusis getting so bad. 

The main reason it has never been this bad is because two days ago I was wearing my noise caneclling headphones because my daughter was crying, and I decided to lift her up to comfort her. She then hit the left side of the headphones (the really bad H ear). and it made a loud bang in my ear. I tried not to think about it too much and hope it would just give me some ear pain for day or two which I am used to. 

But this time is different. The pain sensation has now spread to the left side of my face, like a weird tingeling sensation/icy feeling all over my left side and my ear seems to be very sensitive to sound. The reactive tinnitus is through the roof, and Ive never been this scared for my future before. Because of the reactive tinnitus walking outside is a nightmare. I cannot even be around my children and have to live with my parents for a while now hoping this will get better, but I dont know if it will. 

Anyone experienced the tingeling/icy sensation in the face? can it go away? Can reactive t/h go away? Cannot see how anyone can live with this? 

Should I use pink noise theraphy? Can it help for this type of hyperacusis? I am just so scared I will never be able to take care of my children and be around them again [frown] Cannot believe this is happening. Please anyone who has any advice on my situation! Please let me know!
