      my mum slammed my car door without tbinking and it's made my ear louder, has anyone else had this experience and has it got down after? I'm worried! I didn't think something like that could cause damage! But it was very loud. Surely not 100db++?

      Hi @geg1992,
      We all get spikes from loud noises occasionally - if you're out and about and getting on they are pretty much unavoidable over a long length of time.

      Don't worry about the spike, it'll settle without you noticing given time. Maybe slap some earplugs in an help with the washing up after dinner this week. Show you care :)
