So yesterday we had our first band practice in a garage with another band in a basement and well yeah it was pretty cool...they had large(in my terms)marshall amps with heads and all and it was pretty loud.

we spent about 2 hours there.
we didnt have earplugs
I had a cold,and was very tired,before and after

That was yesterday,about 5-7 pm...now I slept it off and woke up today,10am.I still have the ringing AND the cold(thats not much to worry about,i regularly catch a cold).

Do you think it will go away?Could it be that since I have a cold first my body has to combat the cold and then relief the tinnitus(is it because of the cold I still have tinnitus?)
And (gulp ) could it be..permanent?

Pit,pls help me

its happened to me, went away after about a day or two.

but yes, most damage to the ears can be permanent.

Umm, I didn't wanna hear this when I first got it but it's most likely permanant.
How many times have your ears rang before? even for a little bit?

I had a flu type thing a couple of weeks back my ears rang and ached for no reason, seems sorted now your ears are important though so keep them safe u dont need to play loud at practises infact its prob better to play quietly so you make sure you get everything spot on

Use earplugs.

or headphones like PG

use earplugs and play quieter at practices. the damage itself is probably permanent

everytime i go to a concert,i dont go much...maybe 3 times?

its irritating,i never got it this bad...but hat might be because i have a cold..

i really dont want i to be permanent...any cures available perhaps?

Edit:Oh yeah I forgot to tell you...the rest of the people in the room(like 10 others)dont have this problem...it could be because of teh cold..(I like this line.Its my ony reassurance )

There are no known cures to Tinnitus, sorry but that's how it is.
You only have the ringing because you were in a loud situation recently, a day or two and it'll be gone.
Also playing a small area with big amps and **** will be really loud, playing in a large area will decrease the sound level to you.

Damn...I hope it will be gone...
We dont have other options but to play in this small area and since we are playing in an other persons garage we dont have control over the sound either...we would look like pussies..

Anyways its only me with this problem today and we have played together for some time...even in a concert...and i never had this ringing so hard...(it might be because of the cold

It'll go away but I personally wouldn't risk the damage to my hearing again. Use earplugs.

Yeah small rooms are loud as man, my band practices in a tiny empty bedroom, three guys, two big amps and a full drum kit, a PA and two mics and stands.
I can't even move when we play.

I remember when I first started playing with my band a year ago. I seriously had ringing in my ears for weeks. I was paranoid as ****! It went away though. It's weird, I know I'm losing my hearing. But the only thing I notice is that louder noises are quieter. The quite noises are exactly the same though.

You don't need to wear them unless you're exposed to loud music/noise. Make sure you keep them on when you play with the band, though.

Yes, wear them to gigs you're playing, gig's you're just watching, band practices, hell you should even be wearing them if you're just cranking your amp a lot at home. Any time where you're going to be experiencing a relatively large amount of volume.

it'll probably go away in day or two, and yeah wear earplugs, and don't freaking use your stage gear for band rehearsal, that's idiotic.

I have permanent tinnitus, it's annoying to be honest but at least it's something to sing along to.

So i was thinking this over today and noticed something...that when something startles me,you know when you get that twitchy feeling and feel as if your ears are opened...well when i get that sensation i suddenly "feel" my ears again for about a second...because right now i cant seem to feel them...theyre sort of warm and lifeless.

Oh yeah,change everything in singular,only my left ear is having tinnitus atm :p

I've seen Motorhead on every British tour since the Bomber Tour, and they do that to me every time.
Infact they are probably one of the main reasons why I have constant tinnitus today.

I tend to get a little ringing in my ears when I catch a cold.
Maybe it's a little of both.
The tinnitus can cause a little permanent damage I believe, but the ringing goes away within a few days.

The tinnitus is the damage, every time it happens it goes on for longer and you loose more frequency and volume perception until you have permanent tinnitus and can't hear what anyone's saying without a hearing aid.

Well yesterday We had our first gig to a public in a bar with a couple other famous local bands,and it was FAB.The prob is that I had to go buy the plugs at last minute before the show,the chemists were closing and I bought water-plugs instead as he didnt have normal plugs.I didnt think they were good.

I didnt use them.

I'm totally f#@#$d up today.

My ears are ringing more than the volume of the telly.

thx for the reply, but do the ends stick out of the ear or something?

I.E. Can they be seen or are they unnoticeable?

With these crappy plugs I bought I lock like Dr.Spock...

it depends on the level 85dB of noise is safe for 8 hours and if you half the time you can add 3 dBs so for 2 hours the safe limit is 91 dB so im not to sure but 91 dBs is pretty loud use earplugs and play a bit quiter, make sure you have amps positioned away from your position and try not to stand to close to the drummers cymbals because they are badddddd you can get tinnitus from one exposure of noise but you may not realize it till later on in your life, you have most likely damaged your hearing, so do not over do it again!
