      Its probably just a spike.
      Yeah a couple of times it has happened to me, my classmates are really loud so as soon as I enter the class it's loud, plus I have had really loud things next to my ear, for some it doesn't spike it, for some it does but in the end it always resolves.
      I think the loudness of my class room is actually prolonging the time it's taking for my ears to heal, but it'll happen in time.
      Anyway I wouldn't worry about it.
      I had a spike from a cold that lasted 3 weeks, then I had a spike from people screaming in my class which is on its way out slowly.
      Why did he scream?

      You'll be fine, I just had an MRI last Saturday, you may of seen my not to happy thread and my T definitely spiked even though I was wearing plugs. It's definitely slowly getting better day by day going back to my baseline.

      I doubt that 2 seconds of 98 DB can cause permanent damage. You can be exposed to roughly 1 hour of 100 DB before permanent damage begins to take place.

      Don't stress, you'll be fine.

      We just celebrated Diwali and people light a lot of crackers on this festival. I had a couple of crackers exploding just about 2 feet away from me at around 180 db. And countless others exploding at more than 140db around me for about 3 hours. Guess what, my T remained unaffected. I tried to protect my ears but everything just happened unexpectedly. loud noises for very short period of time won't affect your T.

      No one has shouted next to my ears yet, but I did drive on the highway with the windows open for a couple of hours once (stupid, I know). When I got home, one of my ears felt dull and the other had several new loud noises.. I was sure i damaged my ears permanently.. After a couple of hours and a good night of sleep, I woke up perfectly fine though! Weird, seeing that my tinnitus gets worse by itself on moment I would not expect it, but when I was sure to have damaged my ears, the new noises went away on their own..

      You should be fine, though. You definitely have to stay calm. Anxiety and overfocusing on your ears wil make things worse or at least keep your attention on your ears.

      Hey
      This is the story of mylife a couple a weeks ago this prick in my class blew a whistle right next to my ear. Pain didn't end for hours
      Everyone in my class is so loud and inconsiderate i am seriously considering switching out my hearing aids for ear plugs. None of them care none of them shut up. To be honest I never thought I could hate so many people all at once. You my friend are not alone. I'm a debater and am running for president in my school I'm thinking about have a tinnitus awareness talk. That's how tired I am of their crap. They'll regret one day people who live with tinnitus tend to be a lot stronger than people who suffer from nothing.

      You should be fine though it goes away eventually. If not sooner.

      Some how we'll live these idiots
      Good luck

      When you guys mentioned spike due to loud noise, do you notice the spike happening immediately after the exposure or only after a few days later?

      I love my parents and we are very close, but we got in a fight tonight and one of them screamed at the top of their lungs about two feet from the left side of my head about 20 minutes ago. I don’t wear hearing aids or anything but I do have tinnitus. My left ear is now in pain and there’s nonstop ringing, and it sounds as if I’ve lost about 2% of my hearing in it. I’m probably just being a worrier, but do you think this loud screaming would make me lose some of my hearing? How many dB can a human scream at? The screaming next to my head lasted for about 10 seconds max. When my family fights it can get really loud sometimes, but it’s usually not two feet from my freaking face! Lol. I’ve never had noticeable pain that lasted this long after either. My ear is throbbing and aching inside, burning a little, very sensitive and ringing. Hopefully my left ear will be back to normal in the morning *knocks on wood*...

      Edit: Just looked up how loud a human can scream. It said the loudest ever recorded was 129dB. It said “any sound at or above 140dB can cause immediate hearing damage.” I guess that kind of answers my question, but I’d still be curious if this could’ve caused any sort of damage even at dB lower than that. I really hope not.:( Someone in the comments on this thread said they were exposed to numbers around that for several hours blowing off fireworks and whatnot, super close to them and they were fine so... :eek:

      I have also been to VERY loud electronic dance music festivals/concerts and other concerts (even ones where I was standing near the speakers) but I’ve never really ever noticed this type of pain inside my ear until now. Maybe some damage has already been done over the years and now any loud noise like screaming causes aching and throbbing pain, ringing and sensitivity. Who knows. :( Time to start really taking care of my ears.
