      Yesterday i was on my bicycle and had bad luck as an ambulance Horn went of a Couple of feet from me...
      Now my above 16Khz broadband noise T is More present, so having hopefully a temporary spike..
      Took NAC 200mg once After. What You guys think?
      Btw i reacted quick to the sound By covering my left ear(damaged ohne) quickly

      Wow this is of interest to me. I have ambulance sirens in 10-20m range from me every 2-3 days at least once because I'm living in middle of large city.
       
    3. Take this with a grain of salt, but I think you will be just fine.

      barotrauma? stress?
      Happened to me a few weeks ago. Took my T over 48 hours to come down to it's baseline. Reactive killer T is a b*tch!

      Totally. We need to have eyes around the head and monitor the environnement constantly. That's how I live too. Bike only with earplugs in, I'm afraid. But do you think your t is stronger because of that 'accident' with the siren?
