Ringing in my ears





Jayfarer
So, I went to a concert last night, and I had never been so close. As expected, my ears are ringing. Well, only my left ear.

I know that means there's damage, but how long does it take for the ringing to go away? It's been a little over 12 hours, but the ringing in my left ear is still pretty prominent.

I took some photos at a concert, I got right up close to the left-side (1/2 inch away) speaker wall.........then I went over to the right side and did the same, by the time we got back to the car all I could hear was "EeeeeeeeeeeEeeeeeeeeeeeEeeeeeeeeeeEeeeeeeeee"
My ears rang all the next day,and didnt stop untill sometime after I went to sleep that night

That could take upto 3 days, specially if this is the first time you deal wit such high noise.

Sound damages the ears by bending or breaking the hairs which vibrate with sound and enable us to hear. Loss of hearing is caused when the hairs break and the amount of loss depends on the number of hairswhich are broken. = Wow I forgot I knew that Exclamation Obviously hairs which have been bent will straighten again, so the ringing should stop after a few days.

Had it gone or still ringing?

Some old people do have this problems. My mom used to hear "chanting", which she heard when she was at my grandmother funeral. It was scary indeed. She was easily freak out and afraid alone.

Luckily we found one accupunture specialist to cure her ears problems.

It should go away after a day or something. But since you were so close it'll take longer. If after a while you don't notice any healing, quickly go see a doctor. Best to have a professional check it out in case of any serious damage. I used to have ringing when I was just home but those went away after a while when I forgot about them. Although there were times where it really annoyed me. Confused

that doesn't sound good. has anyone had an ear that was really irritated and itchy. I usually get it when i get a sore throat and have sinus problems. Does anyone know what do about it?

I've never experienced ringing in my ears. But months ago, I went to the doctor cause my ear ached a lot as if there's a sharp thing being pushed.

Does it still ring? I suggest seeing a doctor if it still does.

Hey

Long ago, I went to the concert, and came out with ears ringing, then for next few days it kept ringing, then I eventually went completed deaf.

My doctor said this is a rare case, so.

He told me that it goes away about 2-4 days normally

If this appears and goes with sore thoat, it may be due to eustachian salpingitis, i.e. inflammation of the duct between throat and ear, otherwise it should be due to fungal infection of external ear and should relieve by ear drops for mixed infection, like CANDIBIOTIC ear drops.

The ringing in your ears is a condition known as "tinnitus," and it's something I live in fear of daily since I spend a lot of time around music...

Temporary tinnitus, which is often the result of one-time ear trauma, tends to go away within a few days. But there's no known cure for permanent tinnitus, though supposedly this one particular mixture has worked on certain people...you can probably find it on google by searching for "tinnitus cure." Acupuncture has also been said to work as well.

The best cure is to take preventative measures. Bring ear plugs to concerts, or don't go at all. DON'T turn your music up to "mask" the sound going on outside your car. DON'T listen to music or watch movies on airplanes unless you have noise cancelling headphones.

Hearing is a precious thing...take care of those ears.

I think its tinnitus. I had this when I used to use my Ipod a lot. but now that I seldom use it, i don't get it anymore. i guess it is too much noise and loud music that my ears can not take. See a doctor if you are experiencing this quite often.

It is normal for the ringing to continue for 12 hours. It is also normal for you ears to feel uncomfortable in even not so hard sounds for the next two days.

The ringing that you hear is the hearing point in your ear that is dying. The points that hear the higher pitched sounds die first. That is why older people cannot hear high-pitched sounds.

Earbuds in particular are a lot like music in the car...people generally don't realize how loud their music is actually playing.

If your earbuds aren't noise cancelling, you are without question going to hear unwanted sounds when you're trying to listen to your music...i.e., cars, birds, wind, construction, countless people talking around you.

The instinctual reaction under these circumstances is to turn up the volume on your iPod...which is like turning the music up in your car when you get onto the freeway. People assume the noise around them makes louder music in the car less damaging, when the exact opposite is true.

What makes earbuds even worse in this sense is the fact that they lie closer to the edge of your ear canal than speakers or headphones would...adding about 7dB of intensity without your recognizing any huge volume difference.

The key to all of this is discipline. Keep your music at a set volume at all times.

It's nothing special that rings in ears after concerts. It's normal that it rings for about 12 hours after concert but it usually disappears after that. However If it doesen't stop I recommend you to visist a doctor or specialist of hear.

Ah, that's never good. Ideally it should go away within a max of three days, but I had a friend who ended up getting permanent damage in one ear after a few extremely loud metal concerts, so if you don't notice any different take the aforementioned advice and go see a doctor as soon as you possibly can, because you could have some long-term lasting problems with your hearing.

Hey Goodfella,

I would not stress out about it too much. I am 28 and listen to my Ipod loud and go to loud concerts. I have ringing in my ears too. I have had it on a few occasions from going to concerts with no ear plugs. I always wear plugs now and keep my Ipod on at a reasonable level. Give the ringing a 4 or 5 days then go see an ENT (ear nose and throat) doctor to test for hearing loss. It should go away, even if this is the 2nd time. But take it easy on the Ipod for a while.

Best of luck.

It's normal- don't worry. I once had that for about three days but there was no major damage.
Bikerman
Well, I would be a bit more careful. I have permanent tinnitus brought on by years of abusing my hearing (I went to a lot of loud concerts when I was younger and I worked as a recording engineer for a while where I was exposed to very loud 'monitoring').
Tinnitus is no joke - I have a permanent ringing in the ears - so my advice is to look after your ears before you do permanent damage.

I have a severe case of tinnitus, have had it most of my life. I'm not sure what is the cause of it, some research even suggests that the non-temporary type is not actually perceived by the ears but somewhere in the nerves themselves or in the area of the brain that deals with hearing.

I've never been to a concert in my life, I've never listened to loud music - with or without headphones, I have never been around noisy machinery on a long term basis, I wasn't in the military so I wasn't exposed to munitions fire. I have had a couple of hard knocks to the head, one of which caused a concussion.

I remember even as a child, hearing the ringing. For me, it's always there, it never stops. Sometimes it's louder than other times. At times it will even keep me up at night.

My advice to anyone is to avoid loud noises of any kind like the plague!! Because let me tell you, tinnitus is a B***H to have to deal with!! And, according to my Ear, nose and throat doctor and all the research I've read there is no treatment or cure. Sad

I don't believe that Chad. Hopefully you have not given up at this point, as I am sure if you keep on searching, that you will find someone who can help you. I had severe achilles tendonitis in BOTH ankles for more than a year, and the last visit I had to one of those doctors, when he was looking at my X-Rays, he suggested that he could give me some injections into the achilles heels to relieve the pain, but that ther is nothing that can be done for it. I felt ready for a wheel chair after I had been to see him, and went into depression. Then decided that I would not believe him. I went for alternative doctors, starting with a Naturopath, Dr. Matsen, in North Vancouver. He tested me for food sensitivity, then said I had lots of yeast in my system, that these and undigested food particles may be responsibile for creating inflammation in my achilles heel tendons. I then followed his diet to get rid of the yeast in my system. (Not perfectly, but some of it must have worked). I also went to a chiropractor, and he did very painful massage of the muscles in my feet. Then an acupuncture person, and finally ayurvedic massages. All of it collectively helped to sort out the problem. It is not completely healed yet, but I am not limping any more. When I was on my last trip to the UK, I was running down stairs. I almost have my brisk stride back.

So don't give up. Keep on looking for alternative remedies. There may be something that can work for you. Just has to be!!! Mine was as mysterious as yours must be for you. Maybe someone on the alternative medicine side of things can take the mystery out of it for you.

i recently got shot in the head (abt 30 days ago). the bullet went in on my right side cheek area and came out right under my left eye. and ive been hearing ringing in my right ear ever since the incident. will it ever stop??!! it seems to be getting lower and lower pitched. does that mean im going deaf or its getting better. at first i thought maybe some blood got down there and is just blockin my ear drum or something. i was going to pour peroxide in to maybe dissolve it but im really starting to think thats not the problem. ive read the posts you all put up so i know abt the hairs now. i hope none are broken but just bent. what do yall think will happen or whats wrong.

Hi, im 17 years old and yesterday i did the most stupid thing of my life. You know the metal mint boxes you can buy with a press lock. And it makes a clicking sound when you press it. So out of some reason i took it into my ear and clicked and i got a tinitus sound. like "Eeeeee." And i just woke up and still have it, but my ear dosent hurt anymore like it did yesterday. Does anybody know if this will go away or permamet damage? The scary thing is that it was such a bright and loud sound and it was up to my ear.
