      Friends, a paradoxical case. We have in the corridor a steel tank with an iron lid, in it we store meat in the winter.

      Today I took meat from there, and closed the lid, it seemed to me, tightly. But the tank stood next to the washing machine, and the edge of the iron lid from the tank, hooked on it, and did not completely shut the tank.

      When I started to move away, this edge of the lid jumped off the machine and fell with a crash of iron onto the barrel. The lid is quite heavy.

      How do you think this can affect tinnitus and hearing? I was about a meter from the tank in the corridor.

      Try not to overanalyse what may harm us, I think by overprotecting our battered ears and brains, we may get worse. We have to protect our ears in extreme circumstances, like a concert, but everyday noises we must live with or be driven mad.

      I’m having a particularly bad day of tinnitus today, but am trying not to let it get to me, but it is rather depressing.

      You think this is not dangerous, and can not lead to an acoustic trauma or some serious consequences. Did you happen like that?

      After yesterday's seemingly trivial event, with the impact of the iron lid on the tank, I did not rest for the whole day. I was literally going crazy. I could not understand how it happened ... And I decided to recreate the situation, to conduct an experiment with the tank. And heading to him, hooked the tank lid behind the washing machine (a distance of about 3 cm). I did not have time to put my fingers on, as she collapsed again. And I was even closer to the tank - in the half meter. The blow was in my ear ... I experienced a shock. How do you think this is dangerous? I took the NAC for prevention, should it protect? In my I'm going crazy ..

      Overloaded stress
      My T was not caused by noise exposure, but in the beginning and I'm only in my 5th month, Sudden loud noise where everywhere and restaurants we're louder. My T did spike but went back down. I learned to adjust and calm myself down by saying it's no big deal my T will go back down. Sudden loud nosies don't spike my T anymore, but loud restaurants I try to sit in the back or leave. I think part of the learning is to not overly react.

      I just had two plates clank loudly less than a meter from my bad ear. Now I feel ear fullness in that ear... If you don't have ear fullness or a spike, you will probably be ok.
      The experience of countless people (including me), proves your statement above to be false. Even mild noises that healthy people would not even notice can have very grim consequences for people like us. Acting recklessly and then getting a loud spike is what is more likely to drive one mad.

      Loudly hit the plate? What are these plates? As I understand it, the noise from you after this rose, and did not go down to the previous level? Have you checked the rumor after this? Pain in the ear was not?

      The impact of loud noise. Beat Iron on iron. 1) Am I right that high-frequency noise, equal in strength (volume) with low frequency is more dangerous to the ear? 2) I experienced a sharp noise after striking iron on iron. What should I do? There are - Pills of Prelenizolone, NAC, Vitamin C, E. Benzodiazepine.? 3) On the second day there was a small pain in the ear when swallowing. What could it be? Thank you.

      I asked the same question many months ago. Someone pointed out that high frequency waves carry more energy...

      I've never heard of Benzodiazepine. If I were you, I would take all of the other medications that you mentioned in your post. They are more likely to help you, than to harm you.
