After 4 years I was doing okay. Out in the world more. Getting ready to sell house. Can't deal with lawn anymore or busy road I live on. While looking at a condo this garden guy had the loudest machine and I could not get away fast enough but it did set me back. My hyper is still better than it was but this all made the t constantly louder

Looking for any advice to help both. T seems more prominent than it was. Can't say if it is reactive or is just still the hyper back so sensitive to more sounds. Even ear gens make it louder but I use them a bit each day. Am wondering if the music protocol would be best for now

I hate that I got this setback. I have come so far in healing & can't do much at the moment

I did get a 27db pair of Peltors to carry at all times. I highly recommend having a set with you

With every setback,comes a stronger outcome. It's what I personally experienced. Hold on and believe it.

I just got me a noise cancelling headphone set.  It's Plantronics BackBeat Pro.  It will allow music, but I only use it for noise cancelling AND using my cell phone outdoors.  Without these headphones I can't hear the cell phone conversation.  Maybe this will help  you.  Noise cancellation technology works pretty well.  I was at the airport yesterday, and before I put on the headset I was going wacko.  After I put on the head set, I could hear the extremely loud announcements from the airport, but they were not deafening anymore, and the ambient background noise was a soft muffle.  I could converse with my partner fairly well, but had to tip the headset off, to hear him.  http://www.plantronics.com/us/product/backbeat-pro

Paul I found that to be true normally. It is this bad hissing tinnitus I don't know how to deal with. It is horrible & I don't know how to calm it down. The stress of it is tough. Wine is the only thing that helps. This condition takes a toll on the whole body. If I can noise to lower I will be okay with the rest of it. Almost 5 years of this stuff is getting me down.

Hi there,

Have you tried construction type ear defenders?

I recently got a pair and although I look ridiculous, they do help block out a LOT of noise.

You're not alone.
