So I went to my first 'intimate' gig on thursday (British Sea Power in Belfast) and had a brilliant time. My ears were ringing afterwards, which I thought was nothing unusual. But there is still a light, high-pitched noise audible now, and im scared I have permanently damaged my hearing. Please note, although I DO have an mp3 player, I DONT turn the volume up high at all. So my question is this: How long before this noise will go away, or is it already permanent? I ask this cos a lot of people here are regular gig-goers and would have had the same experience as me. Has temporary tinnitus ever lasted days for you?
