I woke up baffled as to why my Hyperacusisis wasn't howling inside my head. I could't make it out, things were very ,very quiet until I realised the source of the quietness was my Tinnitus up full volume acting as counterweight to the Hyper-hearing. I'd become so used to Tinnitus that my brain was no longer registering it as the nuisance it started out as. I wonder if any of you guys have the same situation ? I have been trying for some -time to use Tinnitus to mask the awful sound of my Hyper-hearing but with no real success . Last night it worked. I have had limited results using " white noise on my generator. I find after a long sleep my Tinnitus is on full flight but the conundrum is how to that great nights sleep. Again, am I the only person here that welcomes Tinnitus as a familiar friend ?
