I'm not sure if this is the place to post, but here goes anyway. I'm a tinnitus sufferer, and I'm doing my best to prevent further damage. I've noticed that I'm very sensitive to noise lately. For example in a normal noise setting if a slightly louder than normal noise occurs ( ads on tv, phone ringing etc) it really startles me and at times actually hurts. I realise this isn't normal and I'm taking steps to get tested. I'm basically wondering if anyone else has had this issue, and from experience could it be related to the tinnitus? Cheers.
