So I relapsed on poppers around the 31st August - 7th September, using two bottles of Double Scorpio.
A day or two after my last session I had a sudden loss of hearing, like my ears were clogged up on an aeroplane. I was with a friend and suddenly could only hear myself talking in my head, not out loud.
It seemed to get better, but then yesterday it recurred after Iíd taken a shower. It feels like a clogged ear / eardrum problem, rather than a loss of frequency l.
Iím trying to tell myself Iíve got water in the ear, but Iíve been showering my whole life without this happening!
I think instead my heavy over-use of poppers together with being in a state of high stress, drinking alcohol, and listening to material which increases sexual anxiety (i.e., femdom humiliation), as well as some toxic quality of the isobutyl nitrites together with lowered blood oxygen levels, has damaged my eardrums.
Iíve been visiting parks every day and trying to de-stress.
My vision also seems blurred and that I need glasses all of a sudden.
Obviously this is (another) sign that I canít healthily use poppers.
Can I expect my hearing and eyesight to return to normal?

This is nasal drip, or whatever they call it, and you are also stressing about the symptoms. Get a saline spray and clean out the passages, do this! as if you get an infection then you'll be in a lot of discomfort. IMHO this is your nasal passages and sinus getting agitated and now blocking. Don't get water in your ears at the moment and dry your ear with a tissue after showering. There is also an OTC product that will loosen the mucus (caused by the membrane agitation) but I cannot recall the name, it contains fast acting natural herbs. Don't overthink and stress, as this is making you ill too, if the condition worsens go the doctor. But you will need a doctor if you get a mucus blockage infection, but it's important to remedy the block early before that happens.

Ohh and vision blur is from the pressure of the blockage -- saline spray, Billy, saline spray.

I actually have Vicks First Defense nasal spray in the house already.
I hadnít thought of using it before posting but I have used it twice now, 3-4 times in each nostril.
I also got through a packet of chewing gum just now, though that didnít help.
I take it youíve had nasal drip happen to yourself as a result of poppers (over)use? Did you get back to normal and if so in how long?
I have tinnitus at present too, which is something Iíve had previously particularly whenever I used isoamyl.
Still feel like I am newly profoundly deaf!

Incidentally the second bottle I used was Double Scorpio Amber. Iíd never used any of their scented ones before, having used White Gold for the first bottle and previously.
Maybe Iím clutching at straws but I wonder if it was the added scent that has irritated my sinuses so.
But more likely itís not about that, and itís just that Iíve got myself into a very stressed and strung-out state from overuse of poppers full stop. My nervous system and body is telling me I did too much.

It possibly could be the scent. I've ranted about this before. I wish popper makers would stop with all the scents. It's unnecessary and not needed.

See a doctor. That stuff is poison, and you shouldn't be putting it in your body!

Thanks, Elvis and Jayden.
Iím not sure what a doctor could say apart from ďDonít do that again!Ē And ďGive it time and you may get better.Ē
My experience in recent years is that it takes me 2+ months to return to health after a 3-6 day poppers binge. But the baseline lowers and Iím never as well as I was before. Itís not enough just to stop using them - I need to start doing something else, to occupy my mind and rebuild my strength.
Right now my vision is noticeably worse. My hearing is better but not fully restored. And Iím shorter of breath.

have your ears checked. i had a sudden hearing reduction that was totally alarming and it just turned out to be impacted ear wax, which had never happened before. easily flushed by the nurse and i was hearing normally again. start there. good luck.
