      I was at the ATM yesterday, when a car with loud mufflers just roared by close to me, I got hit on my right ear, (it was about 2-3 second exposure) I felt immediate slight pain for several hours I'm having a bad spike right now...I was doing well lately and I have a celebration to attend in 2 days. Has this happened to anyone here too? Why is my spike now in both ears when the right one was the one hit? Arrrggggghh!

      I have had the same thing happen to me at few occasions, for example an ambulance passing by close to me with it's loud siren. I always felt my tinnitus being louder afterwards, but I think it was due to stress. I was afraid it has caused me some damage and that made my tinnitus louder. But after I would calm down, the "spike" always went away after few days. I wish you the same Petloy! Let us know if you feel better!
