If you starting hearing persistent buzzing, hissing, swishing sounds in your ears that doesn’t seem to go away, this is a sign of hearing disorder commonly identify as tinnitus. taking the drug ? Ears were ringing very loudly for days, but also in quite a lot of pain. Sometimes the ringing and hyperacusis can be permanent or last a really long time. Analysis consistently presents that cognitive-behavioural cure, a great-appreciated form of psychotherapy, can be practical in managing the nervous, with, and behavioural complications of persons with tinnitus. I once went to Sundissential North one Sunday afternoon in Leeds and the speakers were unbelievably loud. NEVER AGAIN!!!!:eek: Don’t do it again…..
One guy I read about was doing up to 100 Vicodin a day for a few months and woke up one morning completely deaf. or at least, it should be. Three years down the line though and I’ve not noticed any problems with my hearing. Going to see a doctor won’t help. It’s a shocking amount of people who have hearing problems, it’s not something people are aware of as much as they should be. I get slight Tinnitus in my ears, a slight ringing, more in my right than my left ear. Once you notice it it’s hard to stop!
I find it is worse after drinking too much for a few days but it is always there. I only notice it when in bed and it’s silent, I never really notice it in the morning or at other times. While most people who go to concerts rarely put a lot of concern into things which happen in the distant future, the effects can sometimes be observed within only a few months of beginning to go to concerts. For most folks it only stops when they die. A friend has a gardening / tree surgeon job and he gets it really badly. 5. remember, once you have it it does not go away.
And no ringing after the show. Be careful, it aint worth it!!! Originally posted by neeeeeeeeeek Going to see a doctor won’t help.

Outdoors usually isn’t as bad, how many hunters pop hearing protection in before they take a shot?How many hunters use pistols rather than longarms? Once you notice it it’s hard to stop!

I only notice it when in bed and it’s silent, I never really notice it in the morning or at other times. It’s annoying when trying to read beofre going to sleep! I used to go clubbing lots so guess that has something to do with it. A friend has a gardening / tree surgeon job and he gets it really badly. Be careful, it you want to go to loud clubs all the time then get some quality ear plugs, not the 3 quid ones from boots!! remember, once you have it it does not go away. As I said, I am lucky that it’s pretty subtle and easy to ignore, my friend has a much stronger lower frequency noise which really gave him problems, it made him quite depressed and screwed with his sleep which has major effects on the rest of your life.
1 or 2 rock concerts per year… It will seem as if the metal is softer. I got really worried and depressed about it. The advice I was given at the time was, if it’s started to die down then it will probably go away entirely. Not 100% sure about the logic there, but it did go away I think you’re doing the right thing by just staying clear of clubs for a while. Although, from re-reading your post, it sounds like you haven’t been anywhere especially loud. Did it just start up for no reason?
Mine happened after a Buzzcocks gig – I was stood right next to the speaker all night. Good gig though. I should have seen that Racko was not wearing hearing protection when he touched off that 44 Mag round. They may be expensive but what is your hearing worth? No on can see them anyway! I am sure you can get middle ground ones that are not too expensive but still offer some protection. Ringing ears after a gig now scares the s**t out of me in case it never goes away, and I don’t suffer any where near as bad as most people with tinnitus.
Honestly, check it out and get some, even cheap ones are better than nothing.

Wish I had taken to wearing good ear protection more seriously at an earlier age – even just mowing the lawn. imagine that constant ringing never going away..
It aint good!! You see many tinnitus remedies on the internet, like diet pills they are preying on the hopeful but don’t generally work! I buy them in big bags from somewhere in chesterfield I think on ebay. Not very expensive. Can look a bit stupid, luckily I have long hair so I can cover them up – because people shout in clubs / gigs it doesn’t make it any harder to hear people than usual, everything’s quieter. They’re not specialist ones but I don’t notice any serious frequency attenuation, used to wear them to gig with when I was in a band… maybe you get a bit more bass than treble but nothing too radical.
The ringing will go away in a few days. It can get me down, but there are ways of coping with it (playing quiet music in the background to there’s something else to listen to, white noise exposure and not thinking about it). As a result, I made sure that ex-hubby had his hearing protected when working on rock tours. We got him some earplugs made that cut down the overall noise level but allowed him to hear more mid level than high or low frequency, in order that he could still hear directions over the headset while operating the spotllights. As a result he could hear ordinary volume voices above the music level. They aren’t cheap, and will take anything up to 6 weeks to be custom made from injected ear moulds, but they are made to fit your ears and so are very comfortable in use, the material and the size holes through it determine the functionality of the earplug, and they are infinitely reusable providing you don’t lose them. As far as I know all hearing aid shops can get them made for you.
Ex-hubby’s were a little over £300. A D.J once told me that if your ears ring after a night in a club, it means the sound system is not set up correctly. dunno if theres any truth in it.. I was at a conference today and had a hell of a time engaging in any conversations when background conversations were taking place. clubs, concerts, everywhere – they push the systems as far as they’ll go until they actually start to distort and sound quite unpleasant… just rolling back the volume by 15% or so would hugely improve the clarity and stop your delicate ear bits banging together so hard. Ringing in your ears shows that the sensitive little ‘hairs’ in your ear are being banged about so hard that they break or malform and give out a false signal.
The cilia responsible for signalling higher frequencies tend to be damaged and (if repeatedly abused) lost first. Haven’t actually covered the ear since first year but that’s as I remember it.

He said I could have problems hearing female voices……OK so there is one good point:eek: I wear electronic muffs over custom plugs now. This is why a sound system can sound completely different in a different room, as different frequencies are being resonated.
Resonance is not necceseraly a high pitched sound. In our venue, we have a resonant frequency at 65Hz in our subs, as well as many others all the way up to 18KHz. These have been EQ’d out, which means it does less damage at high volumes, and sounds cleaner. I don’t get ringing in my ears but I do lose some hearing, usually until the following morning any time I have been out to a club. I went to a particularly loud live gig last year and not only got the hearing loss, but got fairly severe ear pain the following evening. That did worry me a bit at the time.
