For the past 6 years I have had to live in isolation. Every sound and vibration causes me extreme pain.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I’ve been diagnosed with Hyperacusis with pain. The doctors I’ve seen don’t know much or anything at all about the condition. I’ve had to completely give up my life and go into isolation to try to protect my ears from all sounds and vibrations. I live in pain 24/7, it never stops. Most days I can’t even speak to my husband or children. The pain in my ears is constant, it’s always there, but it also changes. I have burning and stabbing, pressure, scraping and scratching, a freezing burning. The pain changes with the weather, if I’m exposed to different sounds and vibrations. My own voice hurts me the most, having to shower and wash my hair is a nightmare, having to ride in the car for a doctor appointment sends me into a horrible depression because of the pain I’m going to have to deal with for days or weeks after.
From the research I’ve done on this condition there is no treatment and no cure. If there is anyone out there that has more information or can suggest a doctor please let me know. I’d give anything to get my life back, to be able to be apart of my children’s lives, to be a mom again.
