I went to a small gig and forgot my ear protection, because I was a bit pissed I didn't think much of it... Woke up the next day and put my iPod in and thought my headphones had broken because everything was so muffled, plus there were all these weird high frequencies in the background.

Took my headphones out and those frequencies were still there...

It may go in a few days, if not I just really fucked up. It's very mild, but already driving me nuts.

It sounds like you already protect your ears most of the time when at risk, so try not to worry too much. It can happen regardless of the number of times you're exposed to loud noise, i.e your first time, but it's less likely. In fact, I know plenty of gigging musicians that should but don't wear them, and they're ok still - I just have quite sensitive ears. My hearing is actually above average (even in the high end), but I was unfortunate to somehow develop tinnitus.

I've come to learn over the past year though, that it's very much a mental battle - if you let it get to you, you're only going to notice it more. Instead you have to teach yourself to stay positive, find ways of dealing with it that work for you, and gradually it appears to become less obtrusive. At first, I heard it almost 24/7 'cos it was new to my mind, and I kept waking up after hardly any sleep at various stages in the night, but now I have a CD I made of relaxing noises I can play quite quiet and mask it without annoying the gf, and I can sleep way easier.

Like I said, PM me if you need to ask anything or for support - from when I've been to the audiologist, they reckon I now know almost as much as half the people researching it Seriously though, at first I was obsessed with it and did so much research on it, but that keeps it in your mind so unless you think it will help, it may be better only to learn about it in stages as you adjust. For now, you need to see if it goes (hopefully it's a temporary thing!) and if it doesn't, get to your GP to make sure something else isn't causing it.


daytripper, I think we have something in common - I like where this thread is going!
