Hello, I have had a ringing in my ear for about a week. I was exposed to a really loud sound and didn't develop the ringing till about 3 days after the incident. I suffer from a bit of anxiety and depression but seem to be handling this ok. Definitely ups and downs when dealing with this. It's nice to see other people's stories and I had know idea this could happen I thought u just lost your hearing. People really do take their ears for granted. Look forward to finding a way to getting my mind around this issue.
