      Noise exposure
      Hi guys just need a bit of advice,my father was fixing a turbo pipe on my car and asked my brother to rev the car to make sure it was tight,I was sitting about 5 foot away when all of a sudden the pipe blew off making a quite loud BOOOOOSSSSHHHH noise.Luckily enough I had my ears blocked when they started revving the car and when the pipe blew off,but for some reason Ive gotton al panicky and am afraid this may have done damage??I had my ears completely plugged with my fingers so I could barely hear anything but the booossshhhh was so loud even my father and brother said it was loud and I could feel a thump from it.Am I just being paranoid or could this have done damage??

      Don't worry, if your T has not changed then I don't think it has had an affect. Your ears were plugged, and the noise surely didn't last for very long. Try not to panic - I am sure you will be fine.
