      Hi everyone,

      I was sitting outside for a little tonight and a huge firework went off a couple houses away.

      I had musician's earplugs in but I'm really worried damage was caused. It was one firework and it was extremely loud. I was worried already today because of other noise exposure but this topped it off.

      Since my tinnitus worsened I haven't been exposed to anything as loud as the firework and I'm really worried about what's to come as far as my tinnitus goes.

      Thanks for the support everyone.

      How were you wearing musicians ear plugs by coincidence? Do you also have hyperacusis or pain from noise?

      I was at a family gathering that I thought might be a little loud so I wore them just in case. I don't get pain from noise though.

      Did your T increase from this exposure? With the musician plugs, you probably had enough protection and things should be ok.

      If your T doesn't spike tonight, or when you wake up tomorrow, you probably don't need to worry about this.

      There's been no noticeable increase in my tinnitus since the exposure.
