Two gigs in two days has wrecked my ears and they wont stop ringing....any home remedies?
'Cos there's always a big chance that the ringing won't go away this time.
when the ringing goes away you'll never hear that frequency again! FAIL!
To help stop the ringing, listen to music that sounds like it has a similar frequency to the ringing. It's better to do this than just sit in silence waiting for it to go away.
I've suffered tinnitus for over ten years now and I'm afraid I've never found anything to relieve my ears except rest. Get some nice fitted earplugs from audiorelief.co.uk or just buy some ER-20s if you want a cheaper solution.
from gigs and band practise, perhaps it is time to invest in earplugs, bit lame tho isnt it, its always the right dweebs at gigs who have earplugs, tho i guess as one gets older its better to be safe than sorry
might try that frequency thing when i get home cheers
incorrect on the dweebs earplugs gig thing.
That's just a foolish and ultimately damaging to yourself position to hold.
Earplugs are in fact the sensible option at a lot of gigs, and a decent amount of the time you'll find you can hear stuff more clearly with them in. vocals sometimes cut through more for me when i've got mine in.
obviously the sensible option can sometimes be seen as the dweeby option, but at least try some er-20s out. i find the msot benefit comes from smaller gigs. the bigger venues are often not quite as loud somehow.
