Seriously, I'm really beginning to suffer with hearing trouble.

I noticed a year or so ago I was missing my alarm to get up for uni, then missing my mobile when it rang. Now I have trouble hearingn high-pitched noises and even my bass sometimes. I also struggle to hear lecturers in university.

I'm now really panicking because I'm at uni at the moment and am in 3 bands. What should I do???

It's only a problem when theres blood running out of them


Unfortunatly, once it's happened, it can't be reversed.


Just try not to make it worse.

do you use ear plugs? Good ones, not 10$ cheap crap or wadded kleenex
if not you pretty much screwed yourself...
best to start checkin out the chart above
#7
use earplugs while practicing, not much else you can do; the damage has already been done.
I just need about $3.50

You should have that looked at. Maybe it's because you're in 3 bands, your ears are really stressed and they're "malfunctioning". Have it looked at by a doctor, hopefully it's nothing serious.

Unfortunately if I want to hear myself I don't have much of a choise but to be loud

Don't play loud. Go to doctor. Stop listening to music so loud.


Here's a fun fact: That high pitched buzz you hear (or your ears ringing) are hearing essential brain cells that are dying. You'll never hear that frequency ever again.

Not to make you feel bad or anything

So that's the reason for the high-pitched buzzing noise when I'm drunk? Huh, I always thought it was the barmaid.

I would if I could. Not to make excuses but the amp I use for these performances is fixed into the wall and the stage is tiny, so there's nowhere I can go really without being in the way of the flautist/trumpter/rhythm guitarist.

Sucks. Too bad your disability doesn't come with a really cool prop like an eyepatch or a cane or something. You could carry round one of those trumpet things and hold it to your ear.



Funnily enough I've fashioned an ear trumpet out of paper...it seems to work

well talk to your band about having half-volume band practices, and then wear earplugs during performances. They don't look that fruity, i promise

Wear big freakin' things that people wear when they mow their lawns. I had a show and my ears kind of hurt so I put those on. Everybody said I looked ridiculous and out of place but I said I was so metal that I care about my hearing! Only the drums got through clearly and everything else just sounded muffled but that isn't really a concern for me as long as I keep rhythm. Point is they worked. You could even do that and then have like an in ear monitor or something (if they have those) so you could hear everything at manageable levels.

Another thing, definitely go to a doctor or audiologist or whoever looks at ears, it's a serious issue.
