Well, my H is still here, doing pink noise every day, I have it on headphones (closed back 😉 ) for some time in the day when i can, then at night, I have it on all night at a audible vol. Some sounds are scarcely affecting me now, although I would not say its an improvement but I feel optismitic, I also have a theory on how my H started. I had ttts it seems (still do) a sort of short temporary crackling on a noise for a little bit of time, but in that time i started to avoid some sounds to stop the crackling as i hated it, hence i think i got my H through a sort of mysophonia route as well as noise induced ( i am a drummer). But anyway, this is just an update, hopefully things get better soon, but i feel better than coming here last time!

Something I have to mention also, I can crank my pink Noise to a very high volume and not experience ANY pain or H at all, which makes me also begin to believe I have some sort of misophonia. Literally any volume of Pink Noise doesn't affect me.

That is odd.

I had to work my way up very slowly to higher volumes of pink noise.

Pink noise is a lot less irritation that higher pitched noises in general though.

What sound bother you?

Main bother is talking near my ears, and I spent a day with my screamingly loud cousins and was a bit phased by the end of the day, but ears felt more burning like rather than painful. Glasses and dishes, not too annoying as they were before, today actually i put the dish on the counter and there was no reaction and i was like [confused] sometimes cutlery on the plate, but literally pink noise has no effect on my H, what do you think of it being majorly misophonia, I even played the drums (heavy ear protection) for a little bit and not too much issues at all.  Morning I am a bit annoyed as tends to be greeted by loud siblings, so mainly speaking and just generally too loud noises that are too loud anyway.

I don't know.

Not liking dishes clanking is 100% normal for hyperacusis though.

Maybe you have mild case?

Consult an audiologist trained in treating hyperacusis if you haven't already and get an LDL test.

My case is definitely mild for sure, probably one of the mildest ever here, but just working through playing the pink noise from the network.

How are you Aplomado, I appreciate your help from my first message, it gave me a good mindset 😉

Well, I am very glad it seems you have a mild case.  I highly encourage you to work on sound therapy make it even better.

In my case, attitude and fear can definitely aggravate hyperacusis.  It is possible something like that may be going on with you also.  Working on relaxation after hearing noises would probably be a good idea in addition to sound therapy.

When I went through TRT, working with the generators was only one part, I also increased the sound enrichment gradually each week and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) was also a large part of the success I experienced with TRT. I did not expect to ever heal and was happy with 15%, it was a lot more successful than that.
