I have hyperacusis and tinnitus in both ears and it is constant never stops. Have had it since about 1988 I believe, have been to different ent’s and had ear surgery to help relieve the tinnitus but made it worst. I have tried multiple things to no avail. Would sure like to find a treatment that works but so far no.

@lhester10 Welcome to connect.If we can help we try I have tinnitus and the only thing that helps me is Mullein it's a tincture ,herbal, or there is Mullein tea

@lhester10 I just read a great article today in the latest edition of Hearing Health magazine, which is the quarterly publication from the Hearing Health Foundation (hhf.org). They are currently doing research into hyperacusis and part of their funding is coming from a non-profit called Hyperacusis Research Ltd. (hyperacusisresearch.org). The article was written by a founder of Hyperacusis Research, Bryan Pollard, who decided to start the Foundation when he couldn't find adequate information online. Their website has a lot of good info also. HHF also is doing research into Tinnitus, so it is worth looking at both websites for info. Another source is the American Tinnitus Association (ata.org). Good luck.

@lhester10, hyperacusis and tinnitus can seriously reduce quality of life. I found this article written for audiologists
– The Quick and Dirty on Hyperacusis https://canadianaudiologist.ca/the-quick-and-dirty-on-hyperacusis/

It suggest several approaches for audiologists to use with their patients. They are largely based on knowledge and retraining therapy. Has this type of approach ever been discussed with you?
