      After just yesterday I have been hearing a ringing in my left ear, not really loud but I can hear the ringing while I try to sleep. I have been taking ibuprofen 300 mg per day to be exact, a total 2400 mg the past days, is it normal? Will it go away? I stopped taking ibuprofen now

      You should not worry ..that is key .
      Really no reason to think you have made permanent damage.

      300mg per day is tiny. However you did take it for 8 days. Yeah I would suggest to stop taking it. It might go away.

      Third day without taking Ibuprofen, my tinnitus is still going but i have faith it will disappear. I cant imagine living my life with a permanent sound in my ears, the sole thought of not hearing silence ever again scare me

      Edit: Forgot to mention but i have been feeling a "tingling" in my left ear everytime a hear a sharp noise, like a bag of chips or a door's creap. it sometimes hurts

      It's still there, but ignore it. As i said before i have a tingling in my left ear whenever i hear voices/doors, like my hear shaking in response to other sounds, along with that the sensation of fullness in said ear.

      Went to my doctor to check my ears, eardrums and everything was fine, he recommend me Nasonex for the ear fullness sensation (it might be eustachian tube related), and the tingling in the left ear he said it was stress related (oh god i hope it's not hyperacusis)

      Im trying to be positive, i trust my doctor is right. i was taking Ibuprofen as a cancer treatment, i didnt know it was THAT bad even though i was taking small dosages of 300 mg.

      Yup, same thing happened to me. I took the maximum limit in a day (6 pills) and I got tinnitus. Almost 4 months strong. Still got this bubbling sound in my ear but it has lowered slightly with the help of Medrol.
