I read posts where sound therapy is being suggested, even by Dan. But, other than the "Success Stories" at the main page I have not found any success stories by using the key word "success". Maybe I am not searching correctly.
It would be great to have a posting of all success stories from the Message Board.
Or any success stories would be good. I need hope.
Thanks

Hi Darryl,

My hyperacusis is practically 99% gone and I am back to living my life. I think the reason that you do not see many succes stories, is that people who recover usually do not stick around on these forums. This is why you might find a very one-sided picture of hyperacusis on the internet. In reality, the majority of people with this condition can make very siginificant improvements through sound therapy. I really appreciate this forum and it has helped me a lot when I was struggeling, but you need to always take care that when you google any medical symptoms, you usually only find the worst! this is not a reflection of reality! [wink]

Hi Cactus.
Thank you for your response. That is great you are so far along in recovery. What did you do for sound therapy? I have tinnitus that comes on in response to sound. Most mornings when I wake it is very quiet.
I am lucky in this regard!
Darryl

Hey Cactus, can I ask what you did to be 99% free of H?

I am the same as cactus, after wearing ear plugs, headphones for a couple of years i'm 99% clear of H, never listened to white/pink noise ever in my life, that people listen to apart from a few seconds, I retrained my brain, had to see a few specialists along the way - but if I had a re run now, knowing what I know now, I would say to my brain/ears just have a listen to this sound, gently at first, it won't hurt, bit by bit - then find another sound to listen to - and this is important 'compliment yourself' when you've taken another sound on board successfully - and of course make sure you've not damaged ears before doing any improvement to toleration levels. And I'm only sharing this to give people hope! That there 'is' a way to self heal...

Thanks for the responses.
My biggest issue is this damned tinnitus that comes on when I am exposed to sound (does not have to be loud) and then sticks around until I sleep all night, resets to near silence by morning, then do it all over the next day. This all started about a year ago with a faint sound in my right ear.
I did not have a trauma.
Mine came on after many years of severe anxiety depression and misophonia and age, 58. Don’t have any other explanation.

Has anyone recovered that did not have a trauma?

I am doing sound therapy and being guided by an audiologist.

All the recent years of research into mind strength and ive only just realised within the last six months its thoughts that aggravate T well with me anyway... So that will be why when resting through the night, thought track would go down to a single thread a lot when it deep rest, whereas during the day minds are going 100 mph. you cannot think of two things at one time so the mind is switching 100mph during the day - we should all learn to rest and be careful, and plenty of practice at that lately - and of course heavy gaming drugs etc sometimes price to pay, so go easy on the mind everyone, keep it strong and rested when required.

So just to go over that again, its one thought at a time positive v negative - obviously positive is better - then the big thing how many thoughts per minute - thats the key issue, reduce those daily for better health.

i'll put this on another post because - stops that dam edited word coming when fine tuning a message over 15 mins or if you are one letter out, stop that negative thoughts lol... 

So i'll give you an example for 'me' I just wanted to add as ive just thought of this to share with you last few mins.... when my T is possibly having a go early hours, especially if ive had a troublesome dream and T gets on the bandwagon as we know it does, controlling T.

So during that time, say 5am in the morning and its keeps 'me' awake which happens occasionally - then I will remember something I learned some time ago, just focus on the ringing, nothing else, and its hard because the mind wants to wander to problems of yesterday or next week -  so if you can 'hold' that thought to a single thread for about 1 min or less, the mind calms and T goes totally silent for me for about 2 seconds for 'me', no big deal but then I compliment myself on silencing it, and I find i'm mentally stronger all that next day and have a better day with lower T all day, if I continue with more positive thoughts than negative ones...

I do hope this might help someone.

I'll just mention this on here as well while i'm thinking of it to share with others... When T is bothering you and up a bit during the day, this can happen if you have been stressing over something, or a million thoughts going through your mind. 

REST a while, deep breathing, think of something positive, I know its hard with health problems, but make the mind do it - you 'the self' taking control of your wandering, worrying mind, just do it...

So rest then after your 15 mins rest, get busy, little jobs, 'open your mind' raise eyebrows for a moment, keep busy, little jobs, appreciate what you do as being 'in the moment' this helps keep the mind stronger for better control with T, and better health...

The multitude of people who have successfully completed sound therapy (TRT) have moved on and see no benefit to continue participating in a message board.
