hyperacusis

I have some questions about hyperacusis:

1. Do some people have hyperacusis without hearing aids?

2. What causes it?

3. I've heard of people being unable to tolerate light at normal brightness.
    Is that caused by the same thing that causes hyperacusis?

4. If a person with hyperacusis listens to sound slightly louder than what
    they would be comfortable with, will the hyperacusis get worse, such
    that the same sound will seem to keep getting louder and more painful?

5. If a person with a hearing aid has hyperacusis, how can you tell if they
    really do have it, or if the hearing aid is just too loud for their hearing loss?
