Hi i am from turkey. İ am a testicular cancer patient, and getting some chemothrapy
After my first cycle a some mild sensitiveness to sounds was what i experienced. After 4 days İ went away. İ was not aware what was going on. After my second cycle again i experienced tinnitus and severe hyperacusis, even talks hurt me. But some differences from 1 cycle. İ experienced (shower,flushing, newspaper, and plastic bag) sounds really irritated me moreover I couldn’t ignore the background noise; in traffic, in malls, in atriums. İ could hardly hear others talk. After 3 weeks long. Hyper acusis resolved. My right is just fine. İ feel some fullness and presssure in my left ear but of course i feel beter than before. İ can hear in traffic but still in malls the noise still supress talks. İ dont know if it is due to hyper acusis. İ dont know why i experienced such things i was depressed and great anxious about chemo.
Maybe some hearing loss becasue of cisplatin (chemo medic)

- Left ear fullness (not always)

- Right ear is clear

- Tinnitus in both ears (left is worse than right)

- Tinnitus increases when i sleep and lie down

- When i yawn i hear loud sounds of ringings, roar and buzzing

- Sometimes (not always) some sounds (not loud ones) pop my ear drum or something there I dont know quite what

- When i swallow i hear click of my ear bones

- No more sounds hurt me

- Difficulty ignoring background noise at malls
