I had some hardcore tinnitus for a few years, it eventually went away and was replaced with a parti deafness in one ear.. those few years were rough though. The problem was i developed the ringing from serious abuse and then to try and ignore the ringing i would abuse my ears even more. Too many hours in the studio no ear plugs, to much "practice" at too high a volume, and too much loud music. Again it was a vicious cycle, the loud music caused the damage but silence became unbearable. The ringing came in two tones that would alternate but never stop, ever, once, for several years. I can't honestly remember the day it stopped but i certainly can remember ever second of the torture

Oh, you KNOW when you have tinnitus. Temporary ringing from a loud concert is NOT the same thing, not by a mile.

It can be temporary long time. I have friend who have tinnitus half years, then it went away. He was really glad because it was really bad. I have tinnitus that I hear when there´s totally silent.

it annoys me a lot my friends who go to very loud shows (as I do) but REFUSE to wear earplugs (I guess they think they are too cool). i never used to wear them thinking 'it sounds better'. it does not. if you are used to having your ears blasted with sound then it does sound a little strange at first but trust me you will enjoy your music a lot more with earplugs.

i will never understand people who practice with bands or go to loud gigs and don't wear earplugs.

YOU ENJOY MUSIC SO PRESUMABLY YOU WANT TO KEEP HEARING IT.

people have been driven to suicide by tinnitus. i remember reading a particularly gnarly story about a guy whose hearing became super sensitive so he was like in contant pain from even the quietist sounds. this is what made me start wearing earplugs and i have never looked back.

I've had a slight ringing in my left ear for about five days. I'm freaking the fuck out.

Nowhere. I wasn't exposed to any loud sound.

I'm almost certain it's just stress.

What sucks is I like to sleep with earplugs, and those make the ringing louder. Otherwise it's quiet enough to be ignorable.

Have you had it? Have it?

Yes I have tinnitus. I think I’ve talked about this with someone on this board actually. I wasn’t sure it was tinnitus — and to this day it’s self-diagnosed — but everyone I know with tinnitus say it’s tinnitus. Sounds like pipes are breaking and hissing in my ears, happens periodically, with varying degrees of frequency and severity. Moreso in the last couple years.

I’m sure I got it from spending my twenties in basements playing really loud music with no headphones and going to concerts and blasting music directly into my ear drums every day of my life.

I no longer wear headphones.

I have it, but it wasn't from loud music or heavy construction, it's actually from a medical error from one of those fucking doc-in-a-box places. I had an ear infection from seasonal pollen allergic congestion and they cleaned it out using high pressure water instead of vaccuum. Instant tinnitus!

God that sucks. I'm not a litigious person, but I'd sue if that happened to me.

Is it in both ears, or just one?

I wear headphones almost daily for long periods of time, and although I rarely blast music very loud, I wonder if I've been creating a bad environment for my ears.
