What can be done to help with hyperacusis?

Wayfarer–Yes, the condition of hyperacusis is rare but you are not alone. I would recommend the website of the Hyperacusis Network. I tried to include their link, but this page refused to print it. Once there, read from some of the drop-down menus and then go onto the message board. This website is not selling anything, it's a group of sufferers who pass along information to each other. Also keep in mind that you will see that the consensus for hyperacusis treatment among many audiologists is a bit counter-intuitive. Their approach involves a gradual re-introduction of daily sounds into your life while the brain slowly re-sets itself. I have also suffered from this problem and I know it's maddening, but recovery is possible.

Rivers99, I appreciate your information. I will certainly see what the Hyperacusis Network has to offer. Thanks, Wayfarer

No she is not alone, I have tinnitus and hyperacusis and it is about to drive you crazy at times. Tried hearing aids but could not wear them because of amplification of sound and tried several other things to no avail. Should would like to find a effective treatment.

What was your path to recovery? Urgently looking for help for my twin sister. Thank you
