What can be done to help with hyperacusis?

My hyperacusis is part of my Meniere's Disease syndrome. The noise can actually make me nauseous and trigger a migraine. There is no enjoying most public venues such as theaters, sports events. or even my great grandchildren's playtime. Coupled with the awful tinnitus which gets louder as external noise is turned down, I am miserable. Any suggestions?

Hi @mzhp1988, a member of our HLAA chapter has hyperacusis and tinnitus also. I found an article for him in the Hearing Journal which also references a couple of other articles at the bottom. This Mayo Clinic blog won't let me post a link for some reason. So Google The Hearing Journal and search their site for articles on hyperacusis. I also found reference to hyperacusis in the Hearing Health Foundation's website hhf.org. Go to the site and Search for hyperacusis and tinnitus. They are a non-profit that is doing some great research in various areas, including Meniere's Disease and trying to regenerate hair cells in humans. Good luck with it.

Mzhp1988, I know the feeling of being miserable because I have to be so careful now when I go out because of the loudness of ordinary sounds. I have missed many events at our local Performing Arts Center and even church services are painful. Many restaurants as well. I am going to try to learn from others who have the issues. Keep trying. Thanks, Wayfarer
