Issy Posted August 13, 2015 Share Posted August 13, 2015 Hi,I had an SAH at the end of May. I had coiling done and have since then been progressing quite well on my road to recovery. Apart from other wee bits that still are a tiddly problem but are getting better I have this chronic issue with noise. I have gone from someone with reasonable hearing to having hearing like a bat but it is overwhelmingly deafening! I can tolerate a little bit of noise- tv on low volume, one person talking to me, being in the car, for example. I cannot tolerate people chatting around me, buses, cars. Music, radio. When I went to the hairdressers today with my son for his back to school haircut (scalping he says) the radio was on in the salon. The boss wouldn't turn it down so I had to stand outside until he was done. Finding that environments I never even considered to be noisy are now absolutely intolerable .I have started using wax earplugs as a measure to reduce some noise but they aren't always great. Starting to feel quite fed up that I won't be able to tolerate simple environments- going to a cafe for a coffee is out of the question- has anyone had this and what did you do to solve or manage it apart from, like me, staying in!Issy x 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
