      Over the weekend I attended a dinner in a ballroom with about 200 other adults. There was no music playing, but the talking was quite loud. I didn't have my ear plugs in and I stayed in the room for about an hour and a half. After I left the room I noticed my ears hissed more than usual. I kicked myself, not literally, for not using my earplugs. Today, I have a slight hiss that seems to emanate from my head and not from my ears. My left ear is my primary T ear. The varying tones that I would hear in my left ear have subsided. The course of any one person's T is so varied. I'm finding my current situation slightly more annoying during waking hours, but far less annoying when trying to fall asleep.

      Being around talking for one hour will not hurt your ears

      Hello Misery:) Im sorry your T has changed. However, after getting tinnitus I also attended a few parties without plugs (also a bar, a loud bar), mostly because I didnt know that one has to wear plugs. My tinnitus got louder for the night and the following day, but then came back down. Naturally, now I wear plugs and am more careful. However, Im hoping if you keep your ears safe it will go down :) Sometimes that happens too. And carry plugs with where ever you go. I only have on pair (33 db) plugs, they are quite invisible. Also they block out louder sounds, but I can hear speech with them very well. I also use them in cafes, restaurants etc (if necessary). Normally the plugs have a small carrying case with them that you can out in your purse.

      Me too. I always carry my plugs anywhere and everywhere. However, as I can hear my voice louder with plugs in, people have trouble hearing me when I speak because then I speak softer. I find it a bother at times.

      Thank you @Stina and @shan. I appreciate your support. It seems my T is at an all time low now. This past weekend I was so nervous after being with all the noisy people, but I'm felling good now. I think the acoustics in that ball room weren't good.
