      I've had T for a year now

      The other day I went to a place I guess could be called a club. It was very loud, so I left after 5 minutes. Most of the time people could have conversations there if they moved in close to the other person..

      This same night I got sick, and threw up and felt really bad the next day. I think I had some sort of flu. My eyes hurt like hell, like.. behind the eyes.. Headache and sickness.

      Now two days later I still feel some of it, but I also notice a dull pain in my right ear. I'm not 100% sure if it is triggered by sound or not... If it is, it's not an instant reaction, that for sure.

      I'm very stressed these days (quitting my job, starting a new school, and moving, all at the same time).

      Could it be psychosomatic? My sinuses feel really clogged. After this club night I was so scared my T was louder, and that I suddenly had some hearing loss. But I was sick, so it was really hard to tell.

      Maybe this increased focus has just "produced" symptom?

      I can feel tense. The same tense dull ache I feel in my ear, I can feel it in almost my entire right side of the body.

      Is it possible that I just have suddenly developed real H on my right ear? Or is it more likely to be sickness and the flu?

      My right ear is behaving really weird in a lot of other ways too, so I actually think this is temporary. Eustachian tube problem or something. I puked a lot. I get sudden feeling of pressure change, weird different T, dulled hearing for a few seconds... I think it's just the cold/flu being weird.

      I get sick though... Man.. I hope I haven't fucked up so that sound now makes me sick so I have to throw up?

      Hang in there Erlend! this could just be a cold, jaw tension thingy or maybe you're over thinking. should be fine - 5mins shouldn't do any damage to your ears. :)
       
    5. ear/jaw/head...cold..sickness....who knows, so many interconnect with one another.

      Give it sometime and you will know. ..

      plus the only instance I know.of sound making you sick is when it's caused by vestibular hyperacusis..so..vertigo etc..
