My wife has been going backwards lately with sound sensitivity and its effects on the nervous system really taking hold. She thinks the culprit is bartonella. Any other thoughts on which TBD might be most likely for this symptom.

I don't know which TBD, but some audiologists custom mold sound-filtering earplugs that people with hyperacusis can wear all day. The less overall strain on the nervous system, the better!

Sadly, for some, ear plugs do not always help all that much (and can make vertigo worse). Information about how that can be in the thread below - and the best kinds to look for and how to temper expectations around any hearing buffers.

Lyme, more than any other, from what I've studied, is clearly ONE culprit. Spirochetal infections that attack the various human nervous systems are historically hard on the sensory functions. But the spirochetes also seem to get into the inner / middle ear space as well. So many factors around the toxicity and damage.

However, ANY other infection added to the mix can also be devastating to the senses. Many report this gets much better when the right LLMD / LL ND / right protocol is found for TREATING INFECTIONS and all other influences (parasites, heavy metals, adrenal dysfunction, etc.).

Support along the way matters but all infections have to be addressed, however that is to be. RIFE may be one thing to consider for those whose toxicity levels further stress the ears.

Some of the Rx used are very toxic to the ears, complicating everything.

More about how this HYPERACUSIS happens and what can help:

I've had the super-sensitivity to sound and pain in my ears as well. When I had to be in a situation where there was sound, I used wax ear plugs to dull the noise. It helped. Eventually it subsided, even before I started getting treated for Lyme.

I only have Lyme, and I have sound sensitivity. I have ear plugs with me at all times, and can put them in if needed. Has saved me a bunch of times out there...

One treatment worked for it - holding the coil of a PEMF machine - pulsed electromagnetic frequency machine - it clicks out magnetic pulses and boosts our body's magnetic energy. Bodyworkers of various kinds might have one.

For six hours afterwards, I had no ringing in my ears, and my hearing felt more normal. I asked a top LLMD about it and he said it probably quieted down the nerves to the ears.

I don't know which TBD may be responsible as I had this but was treated for all simultaneously.

Just someone crumbling up a paper would be awful.

It cleared more with my adrenal insufficiency being addressed. It is also under that symptom list.

Ondamed has helped me with this. I still have it, but not as intense as it was.

Magnesium deficiency getting worse perhaps? Is she on antibiotics? Certain ones and medications will actually deplete it more (such as acid reflux meds), so you need to take even more than you were.

My husband's sound sensitivity was really bad. But it improved a LOT when a LL psychiatrist prescribed Tradozone for his Lyme-induced sleep disorder. So if your wife has sleep issues, this might be worth trying. Good luck!

Sensitivity to sound and light are symptoms of low magnesium.

Lyme Disease can cause low magnesium, as the bacteria live in our cells and use it for themselves.
