      I was at a restaurant that played loud music, now it has been over a week and I still have the spike. I am 80% sure this is a permanent increase in my tinnitus. :(

      Has anyone here got a permanent spike?

      Yes, but not from a loud restaurant, by a long shot.

      You're fine. Your problem is anxiety and obsession.

      Mine has increased, but from a helicopter passing 25 meters above my head. Most spikes from things like loud restaurants, music and speakers go away most of the time :) I think you should be totally okay.

      Yes I do,

      I've had very mild Tinnitus since I can remember.

      But 4 years ago, I don't know if was loud sound, ototoxic medicine I used that causes T, or purely anxiety and stress, but my T became 5x maybe more. Now is moderate, and sometimes more than that.

      But it is ok, as Always, the feelings againts it was the worst part. Once i got peace of mind, everything settled, T is not my biggest concern at the moment.

      Keep strong,

      How long will this last? My right ear that was closer to the speaker is ringing really loud since yesterday. Yesterday I had a went to an ENT (I had booked [reserved? don't know the right verb] this time along time ago) and had my second hearing test done. It looked like the same that my last test. So I did not get a hearing loss from this restaurant :)
