I went to a metal show in Houston on Wednesday night. We were standing maybe only 15 feet from the big speakers on the left side of the stage, which in hindsight was, y'know, a big mistake without earplugs. About three songs in I suddenly had this piercing pain in my left ear and the music got really echo-y and loud. We ended up moving to the back of the crowd shortly after that and I was able to enjoy the rest of the show with no pain or anything. During the drive home both of my ears were pretty muted (as they always are after a show), and as that wore off I noticed a heavy feeling and a dry ringing sound in my left ear that continued into the next day and the day after that (today). I don't think today is quite as bad as the day before, though I was at work today surrounded by speaking people and radio music for 8 hours, and so now my ears are achy. The heaviness and the dry ring is still there, though it slips into the background if I stop paying attention to it. I'm used to hearing noises like this humming away in the background (the A/C, the fridge, the Playstation), but it's still irritating. I think I have a lot of patience though and I tend to be chill about health problems...even so, I'd really prefer this not to be a permanent thing. I know there's no actual way to know yet if this will go away on its own. Nice to meet all of you, though I'm really crossing my fingers that I won't need to stick around for long, no offense.
