      Hi, I don't really know what to do. All of a sudden I heard a very loud ringing in my left ear and it went away after a few seconds, but now it feels kind of numb and it is sensitive to the clicking of my keyboard. It sort of makes it ring even more. I've always had ringing in my ears ever since I can remember, but it's never gotten this bad. I can go to the doctor tomorrow but I'm worried that this will cause other problems, has anybody had a similar experience? Is this Tinnitus? I'm only 16 too.

      You could be having hyperacusis.

      Agree. This level of sensitivity to just mere clicking of the keyboard may suggest hyperacusis. Perhaps check out the support forum for hyperacusis and post your condition there for more support. Welcome to the forum.

      The ringing and "numbness" and everything else went away within the hour. It is back to just normal static/ringing which I never notice since I have noise pretty much always going on anyways so it doesn't bother me. Could this worsen later though? I want to make sure that this doesn't cause any long-term damage.
