I recently attended an extremely loud metal concert front row, very stupidly not wearing any ear protection. After the concert, I had the normal ringing and muffled hearing, but I assumed it would go away by the morning like it usually does. I’ve only had a ring once or twice, and it went away within a few hours. However, it has been about 36 hours since the concert, and the ringing is still there, only slightly better than before. So my question is, how long has ringing lasted for any of you, and will I have to deal with this for a much longer time? From now on, I’m wearing earplugs at every show too.
