Hi my name is Javier I am 31 years old and I live in Oxford. I have got hyperacusis and tinnitus since that date, and it was because of an acoustic trauma. The hyperacusis went higher 12th april and now is making my life quite hard.
15the April 2017, I went to A&E in Oxford and they gave me some tablets for travel disease, they did nothing. I was very frightened so I took a flight to my country, there 2 otolaryngologist checked me with very simple tests. First one (19th April 2017) told me that I have anxiety, stress and pysological problems as my hearing was perfect, I explained all the symptons to him but he said that I needed a psycologist. The second one (21th April 2017) gave me 'Cortisone', I am still taking the threatment it finishes tomorrow. This was, 3 tablets of 16mg a day during 4 day, 2 tablets 16 mg during the next 4 days and only 1 tablet 16mg the 4 days next. THE TABLETS DID NOTHING SO FAR.
Last friday I asked to my GP to get an appointment to ENT in Oxford, I did not get it yet because he forgot to refer me. Tomorrow morning at 8 will be there to get the appointment. My ears today were literally burning, the sensitivity is getting higher with the days. Can I do something else? Does anyone know a good doctor in Oxford with experience in hyperacusis (the main problem for me now) and tinnitus besides of headaches and blurry vision...
