That was me Karen!! I've been to the theatre loads before T so didnt think it would be a problem. I got another hearing test after it as well and it hadnt got worse. But there's something about noisiness (normal levels) that makes mine worse and it stays worse, not a spike. I went to a restaurant before xmas and that did it. Just people talking and being noisy on the next table made my T worse. I cant do anything now for fear of that. Yes, I have hearing loss nothing I notice or noticed in daily life but its measurable (25db at 6k and 40db at 4k in the worst ear). I got some NHS hearing aids and I now use those to watch TV so there's no stress on my ears trying to discern conversation. Strange what the TV does to you. Its not an old TV is it? Is it worse on certain programmes? If you're watching a pgm that's just talking and no other noise are you ok then?
