What? Did someone say something? Speak up dude... Nah man, it will go away after about 36-72 hours, maybe more depending on what your surroundings are in the first 24-36 hours. Basically, give them a rest and you should be fine. Of course, there is always a chance that you have caused permanent damage, and the best way to know for sure if your really concerned about it is to get them checked out, if only to ease your state of mind about it. Your doctor will inform you of all you need to know, and maybe a check up wouldn't hurt once in a while anyway:) I wouldn't recommend the front row or to be positioned directly in front of the speaker arrangement(s) at any concert, although pending the performer(s), it really doesn't matter where you are in the venue, it all sounds the same, like a pile of muffled sh*t beating itself against a crash symbol. Decibels aren't everything. "some hang on the strings of obscene"
I'm new to this, I'm not sure how old this post is. However, I went to a heavy metal concert show 2 days ago. My ears were ringing like crazy, I couldn't hear properly for the next 3 hours of the night. I woke up the next morning and my left ear had no problem, but I can't hear as well with my right ear (there is a constant / non-stopping ring on it).
I went to the doctor today and he told me that with a 13 day medicine treatment (started today) I might eliminate the ringing, but I will most-likely not recover the hearing part I've lost. I'm giving myself 13 days without alcohol, and barely any music (except for another concert I have on wednesday, I'll wear ear-plugs).
Has anyone been in a similar situation? A case of full recovery would really cheer me up.
