So I went to a concert, and stupidly I didn't wear any ear plugs and now I'm paying the price. It was loud right away but got worse as the night went on. I was just having a good time and didn't think about putting them in. Now my right ear is ringing for sure and possible my left. I can only really tell when it's quiet. But they are sore as well. I had an issue with my right ear about 10 years ago. My GF at the time blew in my right ear and it started hurting pretty bad. I went to the doc multiple times and I got answers anywhere from ruptured eardrum to too much wax. It's been sore on and off since then. Coincidentally that's the same ear that's ringing. I did some online hearing tests and can still hear up to 19Khz. Called the Dr.(no office visit) and they prescribed me prednisone and sudafed. I've also been taking some Magnesium. I'm staying away from loud noises. Any other recommendations? I have an ENT appointment scheduled for later in the month just in case it doesn't get better after my round of steroids. I really don't want to pay for this for the rest of my life. Is there any hope?
