      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Loud noise exposure or an ear infection, or maybe a combination :(
      Hello everyone,
      I recently graduated from school and for the graduation night(5 days ago), everyone in my school year went to a nightclub. The music was pretty loud but not extremely loud. I've been to much louder discos years before that when I was 12/13, I am now 18. After the nightclub, my ears were ringing a bit but nothing compared to the discos I attended when I was younger.

      The next moring, I wake up, the ringing wasn't as bad and my hearing went back to normal as the day progressed. The day after that my hearing was fully recovered but I had a slight ringing when it was silent or when I covered my ears.
      When I pay attention to the ringing, especially at night when I'm trying to sleep, it bothers me quite a bit. I believe since the disco the ringing has not been as bad and I think it has been slowly improving. If I do have Tinnitus I would say it is very mild but it is still irratating.

      Throuhout my life I haven't done much damage to my ears. I have been to three discos, twice when I was 12/13 and 5 days ago for the graduation night(my last time ever). I've never been to a concert or never shot a gun. When I listen to music on my headphones it is at low volume.

      Will this ringing go away, and if so how long would you say?
      Is there anything I can do to help it?

      Thank you all in advance. Your feedback is very appreciated.

      Additional information:
      1) I got a very, very light cold four days after the disco(yesterday) which made the ringing a good bit louder last night, but it improved dramatically when I woke up this morning. However, I still do have a bit of a slight ringing in my ears.
      2) I can't really hear the ringing unless it's very quiet, or I cover my hears or when I focus on it.
      3) I can still hear perfectly fine. It's just the ringing is annoying.

      I think it can still go away. Please do not focus on the ringing now, do not listen for it.
      Just try to give your body a lot of water and good foods and try to relax, do sports etc.
      If you get into loud situations ( also if the ringing goes away completely ) ALWAYS use a good set of earplugs in the future, and I really do mean always with no exceptions. For the next few weeks just keep it quite without big and loud events but you already said that that's usually not your thing anyways.
      Good luck!

      Well man dont panic too much as its only been 5 days since onset and will most likely resolve itself in the coming weeks,mine started from a nightclub in Naas about two years ago so noise was unfortunately my trigger.My best advice pal would be to relax and not focus on it as best you can and avoid noisy situations if possible for the next few months at least.I actualy had developed T a year earlier and it completely disappeared but the nightclub made it resurface unfortunately and like you I was never around anything noisy in my life.Just give it a bit of time and patience and im sure it will disappear completely for you.Alot of people experience T for a few days or weeks after a noisy event for it to disappear all on its own and im sure yours will too.Im not sure what part of Ireland your from but I know a great specialist that will be able to provide great advice and info if your being troubled by this and does very accurate types of hearing tests better than anything youll get in the hospitals,if you want I can p.m his details and contact info to you.Best wishes Bill.

      Thank you very much for the reply. It's good to hear other people's opinions about this. I just hope it goes away because I try my best to take care of myself as best as I can.

      Thank you so much Bill. Yes, I would really appreciate it if you sent me the details about the specialist. I'm from Dublin.
      I got to ask you, how long did you have Tinnitus before it went? Also, after your Tinnitus resurfaced, did it ever go away again?

      It went after about two months or so,sometimes I would hear it very very faintly but then after id say maybe 4 or 5 months it was gone completely i.e I couldnt hear it at all.Then for paddys day I was roped into goin to a nightclub I even brought earplugs just in case and the next morning the hissing was back and stayed ever since.I was devestated as those genuises in the royal victoria said it started due to an ear infection and noise shouldnt aggrevate it,how wrong they were.Do you know where Neeson street is??Its right down from the royal victoria eye and ear hospital,he holds a privately run clinic there once a month and once a month in the vista healthcare clinic in Naas Co.Kildare but judgeing that your from Dublin the Neeson street clinic will obviously be handier,give us a sec and ill p.m his number to you.

      Talk to your family about it and see your GP since you had a cold bc you might have fluid in your ears. You may be okay but if it does not get better with time you will get used to it. Google up on "safe hearing levels" and find a sound level meter app on your phone. Learn about noisy environments and whats safe to be around. Im more aware now of acoustically bad rooms (hard surfaces, echoey) and that night club may have been one. You're ears may be more sensitive than others to so take this incident as a warning, stay healthy, positive and active. Good luck.

      Thanks for the info. I told my dad about it and he believes it will go. He has a good knowledge about health because he worked in many hospitals, and I trust his judgement as he is mostly always right when I have any concerns. He believes it's mostly because of my cold. The thing is, I haven't being blowing my nose too much except sometimes(mainly at night), but I have other symptoms of a cold like clicking in my ears when I swallow and tiredness even though I get plenty of sleep. I hope the Tinnitus is apart of the cold because it would suck to get full Tinnitus from only one visit to a nightclub for the first time in 7 or 8 years :(

      My T started about 7 wks ago. I had sinus congestion from allergies for two wks and thought no big deal. Two days later after i cleared up i woke up w my ears ears ringing loud. Since then theyve gotten better but slowly so just be patient. But if you have fluid in your ears you need to see a Dr asap and make sure you dont have an infection in your ears. Dont play around w your ears.

      After a week of torment, I think my Tinnitus is finally going. Sometimes it turns into a hissing sound now, which I can barely hear. Sometimes it goes back to the high pitch noise which was bothering me but I've noticed an improvement overall. I think I'll be alright. I say it will go soon. I don't know if the nightclub or my cold caused it, but now I know what this torture is like, I'll never set foot in another nightclub again. I feel like it's a second chance and I won't take it for granted. Thanks to everyone who replied to my thread and offered me some support. I hope all you will be as lucky as me and have your tinnitus go. I don't believe in God, but God bless you all :)

      That is a very good sign! I hope it does go away for you and you are right, don't take this second chance for granted. Carry earplugs around you in case you get in a loud situation, but I would advise not going into nightclubs/concerts etc. You're being smart. Hope it goes soon.

      UPDATE: The ringing hasn't been as loud and it seems like the ringing is getting lower. I think it's only in one ear now but it's hard to tell because when I cover my ears it sounds like it's coming from my brain. It sounds like a hissing sound most of the time now and doesn't bother me as much. It turns into ringing sometimes but it's not as loud as it once was. I'm starting to feel back to myself again and I haven't been obsessed with it as much. The past few days I've been pretty depressed, stressed and distracted but I'm starting to feel really good again. I say it will be gone in one or two weeks :)
