Question by Sheri: How long does ringing in your ears last after a gig?
Im 19 and went to a drum and base gig on Wednesday night. My left ear is still ringing today (Sunday) 3 and a half days later.
I know there is no cure for tinnitus and I know that I have done at least some permanent damage to my ears.
Can anyone tell me the liklihood of this being permanent and if not how long it may take to go away?

I’m in the same boat. I’ve had tinnitus for more than 2 months now, and mine is most likely permanent, and I’m only 20. Mine was caused by hearing loss due to over exposer to loud noise. I can’t tell you the likelihood of it being permanent since I don’t really know anything about your hearing loss. But I would recommend that you see an otolaryngologist that specialized in tinnitus, and an audiologist for a hearing test. They will be able to help you.
In the mean time, try not to think about it. At night, if it is too bothersome, play some white noise (http://www.simplynoise.com/), or turn on a fan. Thinking about it will only make it worse, ignoring can actually physically make it better. Also, you might want to start taking some vitamins and minerals such as vitamin e, zinc and magnesium. You’ll have a better prognosis if you start treating it asap.
You should visit my blog, http://mylifewithtinnitus.blogspot.com/ , I think that it might be a little helpful.

Do you want to learn how to get rid of the ringing in your ears and reverse tinnitus from someone who has himself cured his Tinnitus (and coached many people in reversing Tinnitus issues), or from someone who just read about how to get rid of the ringing in his ears?
Sorry, but experience wins out in my book. I will always want to learn from the person who’s actually done what I’m trying to do.
