      Hey people. 4 months ago someone shouted in my ear. I think I got tinnitus by that, it makes me angry that people are so stupid to shout in someone's ear.

      I gave him a good beating.

      But I will go to the ENT soon. Is there any way I can check my hearing myself, or no?

      It's best to go to an ENT for the best results, specifically one with a sound proof room or booth. Try and get tested above 8khz, and have a speech in noise test if they do not offer higher frequency testing.

      Although I've never done it, many people recommend prednisone around the time of the trauma. Might be worth looking into.

      It is not recommended, you need medical attention, you could further damage your ears if you choose to self experiment

      Alright, I'm going to an ENT in a week, that’s the earliest possible appointment I could get. Thanks for the help!
