      I was watching a YouTube video that required sound to be turned very high due to poor sound quality and afterwards I changed to something else forgetting to turn the volume down.

      It was a sudden blast of sound and went for few seconds until I recollected myself and turned it down.

      My ears now feel full and I’m worried.
      I’m in a bad place regardless so this is only pushing me more and more towards the end.

      Can this do some damage?

      uh well I guess it is dangerous, did you have hyperacusis, ear pain or fullness before this event?

      Val, wouldn’t you know if there was damage, I mean it’s your ears, how in the world would someone online know your body better than you?

      Sounds like you have become paranoid, tinnitus may be the least of your worries. I’m just being honest, we’ve known each other for years, hope you don’t take offence. If you smash your ears, you will know it. I mean who doesn’t constantly drop shit, break things, set the car alarm off in the garage by accident, or your dog barks in your ear while you are playing, maybe you trigger the smoke detector making grill cheese.

      I find it very strange how the folks at Tinnitus Talk freak out over these little things like they are never going to happen to them. These little sounds will happen in life almost daily, might as well get used to it.

      It's unlikely Val.

      Might be super loud because of your hyperacusis.
      The fullness is probably a result of your ears protective reaction to the unexpected sound.

      Happened to me quite a few times without a permanent spike in my tinnitus.

      Take some nicotinamide riboside if you can and try to stay as calm as possible.

      It's possible, but unlikely.

      Chances are that this spike will be over in less than three months.

      In the future never turn up the volume on your computer...

      These things happen and cause spikes that lasts anywhere from hours to months. Sometimes the resulting spikes are permanent. This is the reason we freak out.
      If that is your case, you need to do something about your lifestyle. It IS possible to reduce the frequency with which these things happen (although goes without saying it is impossible to eliminate these things).

      Well @valeri was worried about some air conditioner noise, those things are not loud. Clearly paranoia runs high among tinnitus sufferers

      The sound felt like it was irritating his ears. He listened to the signals given to him by his own body, and tried to shield himself from a sound that made him feel bad. What's wrong with that?

      Ann I wasn’t worried about aircon so much because of noise level but more because of low frequency noise that mixes with my tinnitus and creates pressure as if my head will explode.
      This has all started after noise incident at work 18 months ago so my symptoms are real and not related to paranoia.

      By the way I have installed Mitsubishi split system, the best thing ever!

      These questions I have on other noise incidents may be paranoia but who wouldn’t be paranoid after everything I’ve been through.

      We have a saying along the line: once bitten by a snake always scared of even lizards!

      I know I know.....
      I’m going through a huge spike that I can’t find the resin for so anything will send me into a spin.

      Sorry to hear this Val. I hope your ears start feeling better soon. I had that incident I mentioned to you back in September, it is now January) that I am starting to feel a tiny little better. Hang in there.
      Big Hug.
      Once

      PS. Some people here will never understand what it is to have low drone/humming tinnitus.

      The replies are mean. Did the OP ever come back?

      I agree with never having the volume (speakers or whatever output you use) on, though.

      I wish I went by that rule. :( Maybe I am not here then. :(
