hi guys, my onset was almost a month ago and there hasn't been any improvement in my H. i would consider it sevre as i cannot drive with the windows up without pain. i can hardly tolerate tv at low volumes. I am willing to dedicate 18 months to trt. I feel it is my only hope to gain back my tolerance to sound. Do you think i should be trying this asap? i have an audiologist appointment on Monday! they are experienced in dealing with hyperacusis and TRT. 

i hardly get aural fullness now unless exposed to loud sounds
my main symptoms are the following:
-loudness discomfort (of course)
-burning ear feeling when exposed to sounds (this feeling can last hours)

-some sharp pains sometimes that feel like a spark when exposed to sounds
i use earplugs outside the home while driving or restaurants, but not while at home or certain stores. 

i am 22 years of age and i have a whole life to live. I had a good sales job prior to this so the cost is not the issue. i am willing to invest whatever it takes to get my life back! i am trying to cope with this and i could greatly use some encouragement! please help me with advice, thank you!
