After doing some research on  hyperacusis, I stumbled on misophonia. Oh great. Another word to memorize. It looks like I may have misophonia, and not hyperacusis. Or could I have a little of both. What I have read on misophonia, is there's not a lot of research that has been done on the subject. I have noticed, that since I have quit smoking, sound irritates me more. I should mention also, while I'm here writing... I've tried both pink noise, and white noise therapy. My choice was neither one of the two. My therapy is Foreigner, Journey, Aerosmith, and Pink Floyd.

Hi Stanley
How are you?
Was that  the actual  beginning of your H  and M?
Giving up smoking?
 How long have you had it?
Do you have tinnitus too?
Mine is heading to misphonia.....    and then street, town anything man made noise  is horrible.
Birds  are nice and frogs.

 Agree  with you about the music.  I like Foreigner,,I have the Vinyl from 1977,,
I like Chris Isaak   10 CC and  Gospel from Jimmy Swaggart Singers
Its  funny,  some songs I've know since for ever   I can;t reocgnise  for about 30 second.  It s like all the  sound has changed.
I got mine from when I had my ear micro suctioned by an ENT December 2018.. 
Since then    it s been down hill.
  My govt. Audiologist had some ear defenders made for me, so they cancel out 90 %  of noise  in the street.
To my tinnitus  I need to have music up to 80 dB, but  I couldn;t listen to it...It was just an experiement to see how loud my tinnitus is.
Just  a heard  a blast from the past.. on one of our Paint Dulux adds here in Australia..  Dream Weaver  Garry Wright    song playing...   right in with Foreigner
Take  it easy there!

I don't have tinnitus, or don't remember ever having it. I hate sudden noise, like someone knocking at the door, phone ringing, car horn blasting, and just about anything that is loud. Well...I mean, loud for my amplified ears. I too enjoy listening to the birds singing, or should I say most birds. I hate the red wing black bird. It sounds like a smoke alarm. And our Michigan Black Crow, and the Blue Jays are just too loud.  Wow...A 1977 Foreigner vinyl? I just got done listening to " I Don't Want To Live Without You "...lol. My problem is like a broken radio volume button, that can't be turned down. There's times that I think I have a amplified loud speaker booster wired up in my head. I can't really say, how long I've had this problem, and I don't remember ever not having it. In the summer of 1978, I had Bell's Palsy twice, which I just read recently, that it could cause a hearing disorder.

My experience in going through TRT is that part of Hyperacusis, a companion to it is Misophonia. I know some folks may not agree but you can't help but have a fear of noise without having problems with Hyperacusis. In TRT we learned that cognitive behavioral therapy helped that a lot. And then with TRT, we had the generators.
