      Sorry to hear that bill but I'm sure it will die down over t next few days. Many people on here have been exposed to loud sound and have had temp spikes. My self included

      Bill,

      The horn though loud wasn't long enough to cause any permanent damage.
      You will be fine. The spike will eventually settle down.

      How quickly? Who knows.
      But I do know from experience that the more I worried about it, the more anxious I got, the more stressed I got the longer it took to subside.

      Over the years this has happened enough times to me and always it has subsided.

      I know its hard to stay calm, but do what you can.

      Adam

      If you read the 2nd paragraph of this post - which is only a couple of days old - you have the solution to your problem. (And this is something I have stated in many of my posts...)

      www.tinnitustalk.com/threads/tinnitus-at-night.4463/#post-43668

      Dr Wilden recommends two simple things:

      1) Protect your ears
      2) Avoid concerts and "iPod music"

      By protecting your ears, they will utilize less energy than they consume, and consequently start to regenerate. This is a fundamental principle of biology.

      Anyone who has been to his clinic will know that the corridor table to the right of the entrance has a large bowl on it. The bowl is full of earplugs. Help yourself each time you leave the clinic. Now you - and others - know why.

      Hi bill, I've had loud noise incidents happen to me so many times, it is very stressful when it happens, hopefully your tinnitus will calm down soon.

      Just yesterday I was walking my dog 9pm in evening and had to put my fingers in my ears about 20 different times when every loud motorbike, boy racer with loud exhaust with there bass boom boxes went by etc, then walking home a turbo charged BMW pulls out of a junction (in a 30 zone) wheel spins to stupid speeds, i was crossing the road, he almost hits me and my dog, slams on his brakes, wheels lock going downhill, skids around 50 yards, makes really loud screeching noise (didn't put my fingers in my ears) got home stressed out, went to make a coffee, coffee jar falls and smashes on the floor, I'm like for fucks sake my ears! the world is so noisey! Lol. But it luckily didn't affect my tinnitus.

      It is difficult trying to protect against noise, its going to happen, but I try not to wear earplugs when out and about because of the risk of developing sensitivity to sounds etc.

      Thanks everybody for your kind words really really appreciate it.I never wear earplugs while going about my daily business but always keep a pair on me just in case but of course can never be prepared for the unexpected idiot but of course its not theyre fault as how are they suppose to know we have this condition.I was standing about 2 feet in front of the green warrior in his prius and all of sudden BEEEEP!!I nearly collapsed from the shock of it.My face went a bit numb after it and had a splitting headache as a result not to mention a T spike.Grace and Mick I know what you guys mean by getting funny reactions from people when you plug your ears Im a supervisor at petrol station and whenever im outside and a truck drives in I plug my ears and you can see the look on the drivers face of pure confusion as he drives past but hay I dont care.And dont worry Mick we have alot of those idiots here in there little supped up honda civics with fart cannons on the back thinking theyre Colin Mcrae or something revving the s**t out of there cars and burning the tyres off them.I see them every day Irelands plagued by them!!

      The other thing that amazes me is when I'm driving, windows closed, and a car pulls up next to me or behind me at the red light, and their music is so loud I can hear it in my car. I can't imagine what they're subjecting their ears to! Usually the bass is so loud I can feel the vibrations!!

      @Grace for safety reasons they actually should turn it down because regulations state that the employer has to protect the health of the worker. Perhaps you can someone who deals with job health regulations?

      Grace there is a volume setting on every PA system so shes lying when she says she cant turn it down.Secondly most places set the volume on high so the shoppers will hear whats being announced.Just tell her that customers are complaining about the volume that they feel its unnecessarily loud and that should get her to lower the volume.We got a PA system where I work and it takes seconds to lower the volume so I dont know why shes so reluctant.

      I would probably do the same thing in Grace's situation; a boss that lies and won't turn down a sound that is hurting your ears and aggravating your T. So either risk your job and workplace animosity by taking it further or tell a white lie. The majority of us feel uncomfortable about complaining ourselves, so saying that it's affecting other people is a workaround.

      It's annoying but many people just can't appreciate it when they don't have any reaction or sensitivity to sound. If it sounds alright to them they wonder why you are moaning.

      If you have high frequency hearing loss many times metallic sound will be the worst
      e.g car hood slamming cutlery,-forks or spoons hitting plates, coins ,
      shopping carts going over rough surfaces etc. In the modern world it is impossible
      to avoid these. It is not just volume it is also they type or origin of the sound like
      in the examples i gave above.

      I did not mean Grace was a lier. I meant her boss was, he lied that the PA system has no volume knob.
      Its electronic, have it adjusted.

      Like bill, the same thing has just happened to me this afternoon, I was at a supermarket car park at an ATM machine, a car like 15 feet away from me with a very loud horn goes BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEPPPPP!! Must have been around 5 seconds, i could feel the noise it is the loudest noise I've been exposed too yet! Then it happened again! BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEPPP!!!! I turned around looked at the driver and shouted stop doing that you stupid f*cking bitch! Excuse my French. She just smirked and drove off. I'm hoping my tinnitus doesn't increase. :( I need earplugs just to go shopping it pisses me off no end! :mad:
